The beer festival you always wanted but never existed...until now!

About this Event

With limited tickets, be sure to snag a spot for Friends Fest 2019 and drink 40+ amazing beers, cocktails, and mead options. Only 300 spots available because we want to make sure it's not too crowded so you can actually hang with all the brewers, like our head brewer Ryan, distillers, and even a zymurgist (someone who makes mead) from each participating company. No lines, just good hangs and a bottle share type environment. Come thirsty, and hungry.

We'll have amazing food a few of the participating breweries are cooking up for us (menu below). Throw on a couple collaboration beers we are releasing at this like an IPA with neomexicanus hops with Creature Comforts Beer and a Belgian-style ale with Blackberry Farms Brewery and we've got ourselves a party!
