Fall is a time for creamy soups, meaty stews, pumpkin pies, craft beers, and red wines. There are plenty of places to wake-up, nourish, refuel, and indulge the palette in DuPage County. Check out some of our fall favorites below.


This fall, enjoy the crisp air and the changing of the seasons while enjoying a nice beer. From lighter, crisper styles that evoke memories of summer to heartier, more robust styles that suit the colder temperatures, the range of flavors can enhance the dining experience during the fall. DuPage has special events were you can enjoy a variety of brews while spending time with friends and family. You can also explore more DuPage bars and breweries to see what fall flavors they have on tap.
