Upon arrival, you'll have the opportunity to purchase drink tickets, the entire proceeds of which will go to Sharefest. Each ticket is worth a two-ounce pour, and the pricing is as follows: $5 for 5, or a special deal of $20 for 24.
Some of the world’s greatest and smallest artisanal beer, cider, and mead makers will join us to meet festival attendees and share their stories and knowledge. You’d have to spend months and countless dollars for a chance to meet this many world-class brewers. We’ve saved you the trouble and the expense — they’ll all be on hand personally to talk about their work and to pour for you. And many will be creating special brews specifically for the event — you won’t be able to find them anywhere else!
Admission to the festival gets you our special-edition sample glass, plus the opportunity to meet more than 70 of the best beer, cider, and mead makers in the world. The cost of admission also goes to covering the costs of the festival, including bringing these incredible brewers in from all over the world. Additionally, a portion of admission ticket sales will go directly to our nonprofit partner, Sharefest. (Seriously, check them out. They're awesome.)
Every producer listed will be on hand to talk about their creations. Never before have this many small-batch artisans been gathered together in one room — well, maybe at last year's festival.

When & Where
The world's best beers ... imported by hand. There’s no miracle to importing good beer – just hard work and a lot of travel. We generally seek out unmanipulated beer, looking primarily to small breweries with craftsmen taking seriously their passion for natural, traditionally made beverage.
Shelton Brothers is the only beer importer with these specific criteria for hand-selecting what we offer to our customers. We’ve turned down offers from large European breweries, and we’ll do it again. We’re only interested in bringing you the very best.
