  • Additional VIB℠ (Very Interesting Beer℠) tasting

The VIB℠ area (Very Interesting Beer℠) is for those people who like to try more unusual beers that aren't readily available, are more expensive, or are limited releases. Some may be available in stores, some on a limited basis, some not at all, some are made specially for our festival. All are world class examples or very unusual. We try to offer the greatest variety we can. VIB℠ ticket holders may enter and leave the VIB℠ area as often as they like. We don't offer free food, crappy swag, early admission (4 hours isn't enough? ;), or other BS, just outstanding beers and occasionally mead

We will no longer be doing the lottery based on feedback and the effort in finding those beers.

WARNING: VIB℠ beers are for consumption by VIB℠ ticket holders only. We have had many issues with one person in a group buying a VIB℠ ticket and sharing the beer samples with everybody else in the group who only have General Admission tickets. If you are caught doing this all members of your party will be ejected from the festival without refund.

Ticket prices include ticket service fees and sales tax.

You must be at least 21 years of age to attend the festival

Please drink responsibly and don't drive if you've had too much to drink.

Designated drivers

Designated drivers get in free when they accompany paying attendees. While they can't drink beer there will be plenty of specialty sodas available from Sprecher - Official Sponsor of the Designated Driver Program, and other vendors as well as entertainment.

Shuttle Buses

Check out our shuttle bus service from around Milwaukee County! No need to drive after the festival.

Group Sales

Group sales are available at discount for homebrew clubs and other formal groups. Minimum purchase required. We also offer a special deal to homebrew clubs that would like to have a table at our festival. Contact us for more information
