“Penny a pour”
The event ticket price gets you admission to the tasting event. State law and ABC regulations do not allow events to give “unlimited free samples.” Each sample will be worth one penny. Guests will drop their penny into container at each tasting station in order to receive your sample. We will have pennies available for redemption using larger coins, as needed. We utilize the honor system so you can leave a quarter in one bucket and enjoy 25 samples.

Designated Drivers are welcome to enjoy the assortment of snacks provided, non-alcoholic bevs, walk around the festival, or hang out in the Beer Garden.
