2014 Festival of Farmhouse Ales
This is a ticketed event only; there will be no Will Call or tickets for sale on the day of the event.
Saturday, August 16, 2014
1:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Please Note: The Brewery Retail shop will be open 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. this day (August 16) for merchandise and bottles sales only. No growlers will be filled.
This is our favorite and most intimate event. Again this year, we will offer a package that includes a stemware glass, beer samples, designated driver ticket (see note below) and music. Food is not included and there will be no camping. Complete beer list will be available soon.
Many of our favorite farmhouse ales and oak aged variants will be available. Several guests will be joining us with beer, including Sante Adarius Rustic Ales, Crooked Stave, Tired Hands Brewing, Stillwater Artisanal Ales and more! This event will also see the annual debut of the most recent vintage of Vera Mae (our dandelion/honey farmstead ale).

We have elected to require designated drivers for attendees. We will provide a free designated driver ticket with each ticket purchase (one DD ticket per pair or single ticket purchased). The DD ticket will include free non-alcoholic beverages, a voucher good for one food purchase from our vendors and event entry to enjoy the music and (we hope!) wonderful weather. Carpooling and DD-sharing is encouraged, especially for those of you coming from great distances. Attendees must enter with their designated driver; attendees without a designated driver will not be admitted.
