Proceeds from the festival will benefit the Que & Brew Festival Fund at the Edwardsville Community Foundation. The foundation was established in 1997 by a group of local business and community leaders. They founded the ECF to create an organization where people could donate money that would directly impact the quality of life in the local communities. Since its inception, the ECF has distributed more than $5.9 million to charitable causes throughout the Edwardsville School District 7 community!
