4th Annual Foeder for Thought
Join us for our 4th Annual Foeder for Thought! Friday, March 10th 2017 from 6pm - 11pm. This is our favorite event of the year and we'll again be limiting ticket sales to 400 people. We believe that this attendance number allows you easier access to all of the beer and brewers that will be in attendance. As in years past we'll have unlimited samples of beer from over 30 different breweries and the highlight will be our main stage Q&A sessions with different brewers/owners (who will be tasting and sharing their creations with us).

This year the line-up includes:

Jeffery Stuffings(founder): Jester King Brewery, featuring a conversation on Methode Guezue

James Howat (founder): Black Project Beer

Roy Milner(Chief Fermentation Officer): Blackberry Farm

Andrew Hood (Barrel Guru): Sun King Brewery

Our Q&A sessions are each 45 minutes long and will be MC'd by Marco Leyte-Vidal with Craft Commander.

In addition to these intimate sessions, we'll be pouring beer from:
Yazoo Brewing, Central State Brewing, Stillwater Artisanal, Cigar City Brewing, Cascade Brewing, Brekreit, Coppertail Brewing, Barrel of Monks, Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project, Jester King Brewery, Hidden Springs Ale Works, Saint Somewhere Brewing, Black Project Spontaneous & Wild Ales, New Belgium Brewing, Sun King Brewery, 4 Hands Brewery, Jolly Pumpkin Artisan, Wiseacre Brewing Co., 7venth Sun Brewery, Brasserie Dunham, Calusa Brewing, Casa Agria Specialty Ales, Transient Artisan Ales, Malmo Brewing Co, Blackberry Farm Brewery, The Southern Brewing Co, Haw River Farmhouse Ales, WeldWerks Brewing Co, 18th Street Brewery, South Cypress, and many more!

We'll also be releasing a special bottle for purchase on Foeder Day! Sleeping Dragon (in collaboration with Jester King) is a 6% ABV American Fruited Sour. This is a golden sour ale aged in neutral wine barrels with three varietals of Florida Dragon Fruit and a blend of each brewery's mixed cultures for fourteen months prior to being naturally conditioned in the bottle.

Tickets are $80 in advance (purchase in our tasting room to save on processing fees and receive a free beer) or $95 at the door if there are any left. Your ticket purchase gets you unlimited pours, a commemorative taster glass, and access to the Q&A sessions.

The brewery will be open before 6pm on that day for bottle sales only, so come early and get checked in before we begin! Hope to see you there!
