Barrington Brew Fest is hosted by Barrington Area Council on Aging, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. At BACOA we strive to become the vital resource that adults, families, and caregivers seek out for information and support as a partner on this journey to #agingbetter. Growing older, or caring for an older family member, can pose complex challenges. Our team of professionals helps older adults and families better navigate these challenges. Learn more about BACOA. Subscribe to  BACOA’s Newsletter.
