A Couple FAQ’s:
What do I get for my ticket purchase?
In short, beer, smiles, witty conversation and a whole pile of high fives if you are lucky.
In long form:
-A commemorative Feelin’ Sour Tasting Glass
-Access to brewers / brewery reps / other cool people that know a fair amount about sour beer / cider creation, and love talking about each
-The opportunity to enjoy (1) - 2 oz sample portion of each beer poured that day
-Live Music by The Copper Smoke Trials
What do I need to bring to the festival gate:
A photo ID (must be 21 to enter) and proof of ticket purchase, or cash to make a ticket purchase.
Someone told me it might rain on 07/13. What then?
This event is a party, rain or shine. If we get a little wet we get a little wet right? Now, if the weather were to go severe on us (which appears highly unlikely at this time), well that is a different story. In that event, we will try to squeeze as many of you as we can inside our building 2 blocks over for pints and stories about that one time we tried to throw a sour beer and cider festival and the rain came in buckets tossed sideways across each of our faces. Again, we don’t anticipate that happening but if it does, we promise to make the result as fun as physically possible.
