Early bird tickets are $30 while general admission tickets are $40. These tickets include admission to the event, a tasting glass and samples from every attending brewery and cider house. A limited number of same-day tickets will be available at the door for $50. Designated driver tickets are also available for $10 and allow admission to the event and bottled water but no craft beer sampling.

Tickets are restricted to people who are 21 or older and no children, pets or outside food or beverages are allowed at the event. To buy tickets click here.
