Who will be pouring the beer?

We’re working to make sure that a representative from the brewery is on hand to pour beer, answer questions, and have fun. In most cases, this will be the head brewer or founder.

Which beers will be served?

The beers at the fest are extremely fresh and limited release, so it’s hard to predict brewing schedules well in advance. However, we’ll release the beer lists in the week leading up to the fest as they become available.

Will there be enough beer?

Some breweries will kick their kegs before last call, but we will do our best to avoid this.

Other FAQs

Is there a map?

Yes. You’ll receive a layout of the festival upon entering.

Will you have merchandise?

Absolutely. Horus will be selling glassware and shirts at their booth. Hop Culture will be selling glassware, tekus, shirts, pins, and stickers designed by London-based Sam Taylor.

How do I apply for media passes?

Send an email to Kenny at Please include the name of your publication or account and your estimated reach.

Where are the proceeds of the festival going?

Proceeds will pay for the venue, permits, all beer sent, lodging for visiting breweries, and operational costs first, and then the remainder will be donated to the charity, Wildlife Waystation.

The Rules

Please DO NOT bring outside food or open any cans/bottles during the festival. For legal reasons, they will be confiscated.

It’s a beer fest and we want everyone to have a good time, but anyone that’s visibly intoxicated and acting inappropriately will be asked to leave. There is no rentry on festival grounds. Once you exit, you must leave the premises.

We strongly encourage that attendees use services like Uber, Lyft, or local taxis, but there are parking spaces all around the venue on the street and within the park.

We look forward to seeing you on January 26th!
