Are sales final?

ALL SALES ARE FINAL AND REFUNDS WILL NOT BE PERMITTED. If you purchase a ticket and are not able to attend you can absolutely give your ticket to a friend. All IDs will be checked to ensure attendees are 21+ but ticket names do not need to match the purchaser name. Please guard your tickets carefully and do not make multiple copies. Fraudulent/copied tickets will get you turned away at the door.


What beers will be served?

The list of beers being served will be posted as we get closer to the event. We expect plenty of seasonal, special, rare and one-off beers to be served. That said, beer availability is subject to change.


Where can I learn more about Partners in Craft?

For more information and additional FAQs on this year's new opening night event, Partners in Craft, visit: http://texascraftbrewersfestival.com/partnersincraft


Will tickets be available on the day of the festival?

The Texas Craft Brewers Festival has sold out for the last three years prior to event day. We recommend getting your tickets in advance--do not wait until event day.


Will additional beer tickets be available?

Yes, 24oz per person per transaction is in accordance with TABC code. But rest assured, attendees will be able to purchase 8 additional 3oz sample tickets (aka 24 more ounces) for $5/ transaction. Credit/Debit cards will be accepted, but we recommend bringing cash for speedy transactions.


What are the festival hours?

Texas Craft Brewers Festival runs from 12-6:30pm. VIP entry will begin at 12pm. General Admission will begin at 2pm. Designated Drivers accompanying VIP ticket holders will be permitted to enter at 12pm.


Are children allowed?

Though we would love to allow children into the event, we just want to put their safety first. Since this event does involve the consumption of alcohol and large crowds, we feel it safest to not have children attend. As such, this is a 21+ event requiring valid ID. Due to current alcohol laws and safety concerns, NO minors will be allowed in, which includes newborns, infants, toddlers, kids, teenagers, or any other variation of someone under 21 years of age.


Are pets allowed?

We love our four-legged friends, but they don’t always mix with large crowds. Due to safety concerns, NO pets are allowed.


Can I bring in glasses, coolers, chairs or umbrellas?

We provide plenty of covered seating, including a covered eating area and seating under Fiesta Gardens massive pavilion. You may bring in a blanket to lay out and sit slopeside near Lady Bird Lake, but due to safety concerns, please do NOT bring glasses, coolers, chairs or umbrellas into the venue.


Can I bring my own alcohol or food to the festival?

Really? Come on y'all, doing so is prohibited and could result in confiscation and being asked to leave the event. Enjoy the Texas craft beer provided by the Texas craft brewers instead! That’s why you came to the event in the first place. We will also have multiple food vendors on-site providing a variety of cuisines.


Can I bring my own water bottle?

You may bring in a refillable water bottle provided it is empty. Drinking/rinse water will be available throughout the festival.


Can I leave, then re-enter the Festival?

Yes. You cannot leave with any alcohol, though, and you will need to have your ID checked again before you may re-enter the festival grounds.


Is there a Designated Driver program?

We strongly encourage all attendees to be responsible and safe, and to make travel plans accordingly. Special designation for attendees abstaining from alcohol consumption is available through the Designated Driver ticket option, which provides admission plus free non-alcoholic beverages.


Will there be food and other drinks at the fest?

Most definitely. Various non-alcoholic drinks, and freshly prepared food from local vendors will be on sale at the festival, along with plenty of free water to keep everyone hydrated.


Can I distribute information or products at the event?

No. Distribution of materials is restricted to authorized parties, such as sponsors. Unauthorized solicitation will result in immediate removal. If you wish to distribute material as a sponsor, email us.


How do I get to the venue? What about parking?

Parking is available around Fiesta Gardens and Lady Bird Lake at no cost, but it is limited. PLEASE TAKE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION, CAR POOL, RIDE YOUR BIKE (bike racks will be provided next to the entrance on the west end of the park, remember to bring your own lock! You can consult the city's TRAIL DIRECTORY here.), PARK REMOTELY, ARRANGE RIDES or grab a Lyft. The two main parking lots are on the North side of the main facility. An additional lot is adjacent to the Fiesta Gardens West End property. All parking is first-come, first-served. Street parking in the surrounding neighborhood is discouraged. PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL OF THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOOD. PAY ATTENTION TO CITY SIGNAGE and DO NOT BLOCK DRIVEWAYS. For more information on our Safe Ride Program, please visit the "Getting There" page of the TCBF website.


Why do you give out a plastic tasting cup instead of a glass?

We would much rather provide a glass tasting cup instead of plastic. Unfortunately, glass is not allowed on the festival grounds in any form, so we have to use plastic.


Do you offer media credentials?

Yes. If you are a member of the media interested in covering the festival, please fill out the 2017 Media Credential Request Form. You will be notified about the status of your request no later than Friday, August 4th.
