Craft Brewery Registration

Fellow Friends in Beer!

Please join Dick Brothers Brewery in partnership with Quincy Brewing Company for MayFest at the historic site of the Dick Brothers Brewery in Quincy, IL.  MayFest continues a tradition of celebrating Quincy’s German Heritage and pays homage to the history of Dick Brothers Brewery.  MayFest is a family-friendly event with a focus on Craft Beer.  The event will host local food vendors as well as a separate Homebrew Competition.  We anticipate approximately 5,000 attendees from across the tri-state region for the event.

This year’s Event will remember a fellow craft beer enthusiast, Ed Simbol.  Ed was an IL small business owner of Bigby’s Pour House (Addison & Rolling Meadows) and Ed’s Basement (St. Charles).


MayFest will be Saturday, May 11th from 12pm to 10 PM, in the heart of the Dick Brothers Brewery Complex at 929 York Street in Quincy, IL.

 This is a rain or shine event. This event is free and open to the public.
