Ticketing (Please Read!)
This is a ticketed event, and all tickets must be purchased in advance. No tickets will be sold at the gate. Each ticket is unique. Only purchase tickets through Eventbrite. Do not purchase second-hand tickets from third-party sellers as they may be counterfeit fakes that will not grant you entrance to the event.
When you arrive at the event, you will have your ID checked and then your ticket will be scanned. Once your ticket is scanned, you will enter the “ticket-holder waiting area” (see map to right). At exactly 1:00 pm, everyone that has made it into the waiting area will be allowed to enter the event at once eliminating any wait time so that everyone has the most time possible to enjoy the brews! This is very similar to how patrons are let into the Great Taste of the Midwest.
