Natural Land Institute presents Wine & Brew at the Wetland, a casual event with refreshments and music under the big tent overlooking the midsummer wildflower prairie at Nygren Wetland Preserve (3190 W. Rockton Rd., Rockton, IL 61072) on Saturday, July 16, 2016 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

Guests will enjoy socializing, tasting complimentary samples of wine and craft beer, a cash bar, a light buffet of gourmet cuisine by Toni’s of Winnebago, musical entertainment and exploring the prairies and wetlands on their own or with a tour guide. 

Several new things are happening at this year’s event. Guests who attend Wine & Brew at the Wetland will have a chance to taste and name a special recipe benefit beer created by Prairie Street Brewing Company. It will be launched in late June at their restaurant and at the Wine & Brew event. Proceeds from the sale of this craft beer will be given to NLI. Two new craft breweries, Generations Brewing Co. and Lena Brewing Co., have been added to the tasting line up. Wine tasting selections by Artale & Co. will be self-sustainably farmed or Bio Dynamic. 15% from the sale of bottles of wine sold at the event will be donated to NLI. The entertainment features the honky tonk 1940s and 50s music by the band Swingbilly RFD. 

Cost is $30 per person in advance or $40 per person at the event. Pre-registration and payment are requested online at or call 815/964-6666.
