WHEATON – Wheaton residents had the opportunity to enjoy a cold one from any of the more than 100 local and national breweries at the annual Wheaton Brew Fest on Saturday.

The event, which featured Wheaton's own Dry City Brew Works as well as Revolution, Dogfish Head and many others, was held by the Wheaton Park District in Memorial Park.

A portion of the proceeds from the ticketed event went to the Court Appointed Special Advocates of DuPage County, a nonprofit that supports abused and neglected children.
