Q: Can I use cash to purchase beverages?
A: During the official beer/cider tasting period of 12 noon to 5pm, only the red tickets (provided with your ticket package) and blue tickets (pint beer & wine) may be used to purchase tastings or other beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic, alike). After 5pm, however, the main bar will remain open where tasting tickets will continue to be honored and a cash/credit bar will be available to those not wanting to purchase additional beverage tickets.
Q: What if I am a DD, dont drink or am under 21?
A: The Red tickets included in your admission package may be used to purchase tastings of beer and cider (1 tkt. ea.), wine (3 tkts.), soft drinks (2 tkts.), canned/bottled beer (2 tkts.) and even pints of beer (3 tkts.). Everyone coming to BREW FEST! will receive a wrist band upon entering. They are color coded to indicate whether you are of drinking age or are a designated driver and/or under 21.
Q: Can I use my tickets to buy food?
A: The great on-site food vendors accept cash and credit card but are not directly affiliated with the BREW FEST! and so, therefore, do not accept our tasting tickets for their products.
Q: Is there camping available?
A: At the time of your arrival, if you are interested in tent or RV camping, let the nice people at the ticket counter know. The fee for tent camping is $20. RVs are charged $35. The ticket counter folks will provide you with a small, numbered wooden stake that you can prominently plant at your camp site or beside your RV to indicate you've paid. Parking attendants will direct you to locations where you can set up your tent or park your RV or motor home. All campers must be packed up and ready to depart by 12pm, noon the following day, Sunday, Oct. 7. There are no utilities/amenities provided with your admission to camp. Please be aware there is no dedicated security provided for campers and neither the Boathouse Beer Garden nor Renato Management (property managers) are to be held liable for lost or damaged items.
Q: Do you have to buy a ticket to attend?
A: We've redesigned BREW FEST! so that the ticket packages work for everyone and get folks into the festival quickly. If you want to come to BREW FEST!, enjoy all we have in store and take in the great selection of beverages, top shelf music, amazing food and all the fun, you'll need to purchase the Admission package to get in (described above).
Q: What if it rains?
A: While rain can put a bit of damper on things, minus a few exceptions between buildings, the entirety of BREW FEST! is under cover. So, we will go on rain or shine. But, lets all pray for nice weather!
Q: Are kids allowed in?
A: While this is primarily an adult beverage drinking event, we neither prohibit children nor do we encourage folks to bring their kids. That said, kids under 12 years old get in to the event for free. Kids and young adults under 21 will pay the full admission price, receive a wristband indicating their underage status and may use their Red tickets to purchase the variety of sodas on hand.
Q: What if I want to purchase other merchandise such as t-shirts?
A: A cashier attendant will always be on hand at the MERCHANDISE COUNTER to help you with the purchase of the many Boathouse merchandise items available. Cash and/or credit card accepted.
Q: What does it cost to park my car?
A: There is a $3 charge for parking at the entrance.
Q: Can I use tasting or pint tickets after BREW FEST! has ended?
A: Tickets purchased on the day of BREW FEST! are only valid on the day of the event. If you still have Red and/or Blue tickets after the brewer tastings end at 5pm, you may still redeem them at the main bar in the Beer Garden through 9pm when the festival ends.
