Although this fest focuses on bocks and other German beers, many other microbrews will serve their amazing craft beers as well, such as Lagunitas, Fireman’s Brew, Weihenstephan, Affligem, and more. Local food businesses, such as Pink’s Hot Dogs, will serve food to those wanting to eat between or during beers.

For just $25 admission, attendees receive three hours of UNLIMITED beer pours, plus a souvenir glass to take home. Upgrading to the $85 VIP admission allows entry an hour earlier, plus access to the return of Sugar Lounge for more entertainment and drinks. Attending as a group? Buy a Booth package for $500, which comes with 10 VIP passes, a private booth, and a bottle of Patron. Did I mention that Sugar Lounge returns as well?
