Now listen: this is not constructed like a normal "You pay an entry fee, you get unlimited/ X amount of samples" fest. What you get here for your $15 is: entry to the fest. A commemorative glass, filled with one free beer. Live music by Anthony Leon and the Chain and Man No Sober. Food trucks will be on hand- Supper Truck, Irrational Pie, Sebastiano's and Joe S. Sausage, but of course you don't get free food. Joe Sausage is pretty generous, though, and if you give him a sip of beer, he may throw you a sausage. After your first free beer, your wristband will allow you to purchase three pints after that. So you see, this is NOT a sampling event. And that's ok, but you all need to know that when deciding whether to purchase a ticket. It's fine to ask to try something before you buy, but it's not the type of event where you get a 3 oz. pour of the Brown Ale and get back in line for Hefeweizen sample. This event is designed for you to buy a few beers and relax with your friends in a spookily fun setting. The lines should be noticeably shorter than those at sampling fests, so you'll have time to walk around and take your Instagram photos of the Railyards and whatnot. The event runs from 4-10. Get your tickets here.
