Other (non-barrel aged) specialty beers will be available on tap in the Barrel Room. Pouring stations for all barrel aged beers will be set up in the Brew House and Party Tent out back. Live Music by Nate Holley will be rocking the tent out back. Your ticket includes a burger basket served with house made potato chips. These will be available in the extended party tent at the west end of the Brew House.

Ticket holders will receive information on hotels, cabs, other awesome stuff to do in the area and more via email, so keep an eye out.

So grab some pals, your significant other, your parents or that one person who said you should "maybe hang out sometime" and join us in the Barrel Room on November 2nd, where we'll be sippin' liquid gold.

Please take note:

  • Tickets are available online and in the pub for purchase this year.
  • Tickets are non-refundable.
  • There is a limited amount of tickets for this event. There will not be tickets available at the door.

MOST IMPORTANTLY:

Please keep in mind that many of these beers are high in alcohol content. Pace yourself. We will be placing water stations throughout the Brew House and in the Barrel Room. We encourage a water between each beer, and make sure to use your ticket for your food. SBC has the right to, and will, refuse service to anyone who we believe has had enough to drink.

FAQs:

1.) Should we get there early to line up and get beer?

A.) If you feel so inclined, you can, but there is no need to and we don't recommend it. Every beer's bottle limit is specifically set to the amount of tickets sold so that every single ticket holder can purchase the maximum amount of beer allowed per style.

2.) Can we purchase extra drink tokens?

A.) Yes, extra drink tokens will be available for purchase at the bar in the Barrel Room for $2.00 each.

3.) Can we bring friends/spouses/parents to get extra bottles?

A.) You can bring as many people as your heart desires, as long as they have acquired the proper ticket to get into the event.

4.) Can people come in with us if they don't have a ticket if they don't drink/buy bottles?

A.) No. This event is strictly limited to ticket holders.

5.) I just drove from (enter city name) to buy bottles, but I don't have a ticket to the event. Can I just purchase bottles, but not come to the event?

A.) No. Any remaining beer left after the event is over will be available for general purchase, but you will have to wait until the event is over at 4:00 pm in order to purchase anything.

6.) Can we bottle share in line/during the event?

A.) Absolutely not. This is illegal in Michigan, sorry, Charlie.

7.) Can we order food during the event from the pub?

A.) Absolutely! Our full menu will be available for purchase in the Barrel Room. Just keep in mind that it must stay in the Barrel Room, there is no food allowed in the Brew House.

Any other questions? Please feel free to reach out to us. We're happy to answer your questions, calm your nerves, reassure you that you are the beautiful butterfly that you are. Just email us at megan@sbrewing.com.
