Specialty beers from across the Midwest will be front and center this Saturday, Aug. 16, in downtown Oak Park for the 7th annual Micro Brew Review.

The event, which runs along Marion Street between Lake and Pleasant streets, will feature nearly 200 craft beers from 72 brewers. The festival runs from 3-7 p.m.

The event is being co-produced by the sustainability nonprofit Seven Generations Ahead and the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild.

"This event is a Midwest showcase of the best of regional craft beer, local food and music and environmental sustainability," said Gary Cuneen, executive director of Seven Generations Ahead, in a news release. "The Oak Park Micro Brew Review also supports our work to build healthy, sustainable communities in the Chicago metropolitan region and the Midwest."

More than 4,000 people attended the event last year, according to Seven Generations Ahead.

Thirty-three brewers also will give their takes on the American red ale, in the ReplicALE Project.
