Cheers! We will contact you shortly.


1. Can I buy tickets at the door?

Tickets will be available for purchase at the door unless they are sold out. Please be aware that there will be an extra fee of $10 per ticket. Please check online for availability beforehand. Remember, if tickets are still obtainable, you can also buy them online and print them at home, which will save you time at the event.


2. Where do I buy designated driver tickets?

Designated driver tickets can be purchased either online or at the door on the day of the event, as long as the designated driver is accompanying the group or person they will be driving.


3. What happens if it rains?

In case of rain, please be prepared to potentially get wet. However, don't worry, it's not a catastrophe. Plus, with a beer in hand, you can still enjoy yourself!


4. How much is parking?

Great news! Parking is absolutely free of charge! However, it is important to prioritize safety and responsibility, so please refrain from drinking and driving. Remember to always have a designated driver who can ensure everyone's well-being. Safety first!


5. If I choose to take a taxi home and leave my car in the parking lot, will I have the opportunity to retrieve my car at a later time?

Our utmost priority is ensuring your safety, and we are committed to assisting you in drinking responsibly. We strongly recommend arranging alternative transportation in advance rather than driving yourself. However, if you find yourself unprepared to drive after the 5:00 p.m. tasting, there are various safe options available to you. You may opt to remain at the event after 5:00 p.m., when the beer service concludes. During this time, we will continue to offer complimentary water, sodas, food vendors, and games for your enjoyment. Alternatively, if you decide to take a taxi and leave your vehicle in the parking lot, it will remain accessible, and you can retrieve it the following day.


6. What will happen if I misplace or damage my tasting cup?

We kindly request that you handle your tasting cup with care, as we are unable to offer replacements. However, if there are any extra supplies available, you may have the opportunity to purchase a replacement for a nominal fee of $5.00. Please note that this is subject to availability.


7. Is it possible for me to buy an additional commemorative cup?

Certainly, if there are still supplies available, you will have the opportunity to purchase an additional commemorative cup at the conclusion of the event.

I apologize for any inconvenience, but for the concerts, there won't be assigned seats. It will be a standing room only event. However, if standing for long periods is challenging for you, please inform the check-in area or one of our friendly staff members. We will be more than happy to provide you with a folding chair and place you off to the side for your comfort. Please note that due to safety concerns, we are unable to have seats directly in the middle in front of the stage. Our priority is to ensure everyone's safety and enjoyment during the event.
