What is Premium Admission? 

Premium ticket holders get access to the festival an hour and a half earlier than general admission ticket holders (12:30pm as opposed to 2:00pm). For true beer aficionados, we hope that this advance admission provides a unique opportunity to meet the brewers, brewery representatives and homebrewers who make this festival possible, and discuss their craft.

In addition to getting early admission into the festival, Premium ticket holders will get the chance to enjoy one of many guided beer tours. The guided beer tours will begin at 1:30 PM and last approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Beer loving and knowledgeable staff will guide you along the way as you sample and learn about various styles pertaining to the tour theme. The themes we offer will surely help expand your knowledge and love of quality craft brewed beer. Signs just inside the entrance to the festival will announce the Guided Beer Tour themes and meeting location on the field for each. Possible themes to include: Hoppy beers, Belgium beers, Darker beer styles, Lighter beer styles, Beers made with fruit, and Oktoberfest / German beers. Each tour will be on a first come basis and will be limited to about 25 people.

Only 1000 Premium tickets will be available for purchase.
