Tickets & Session Times:
May 31, 2014
VIP SESSION: 12:30pm – 5:00pm
Includes an additional hour (from 12:30pm - 1:30pm) where the VIP invited guests and VIP ticket holders will be able to talk to brewers and taste special beers the breweries have reserved for this session only (and will not be served to the general session attendees.)

While most of the tickets for this special event are available by invitation only, a limited number of tickets will be made available to the general public. Gates will open at 12:00pm (first pour at 12:30pm). Tickets are $75, advance purchase only. (Ticket availability is limited). Ticket price includes a souvenir tasting glass marked with a 2oz. pour line and admission to the special one-hour meet & greet with brewers.

GENERAL ADMISSION SESSION: 1:30pm - 5:00pm
Tickets are $46 each when purchased online in advance of the event. If tickets still remain, they will be $60 on event day at the door (cash only). Ticket price includes a souvenir tasting glass marked with a 2 oz. pour line and beer tasting.

Designated Driver tickets are available for $10. A DD ticket holder will get a bottle of water. Designated drivers do NOT receive a tasting glass and are NOT permitted to sample any beer. Any designated driver seen drinking will be removed from the festival immediately. Designated drivers must be 21+ and present valid photo ID for entry.

The event will be held (rain or shine) outdoors under tents on the Marine Parade Grounds at the Philadelphia Navy Yard on South Broad St. in Philadelphia. Everyone who purchases a ticket will get in. No tickets will be sold once the event sells out. We have limited the number of attendees to insure that everyone that purchases a ticket will be able to sample the beers they want and move around with ease.

There will be plenty of water and food available for purchase. If you really love great beer, this is the festival for you. We will keep updating the list of expected beers on our site, so check back often.

All attendees must show valid photo I.D at the door to be admitted. You must be 21 or older to attend this event. No Exceptions! No children, toddlers, infants, strollers, or pets are permitted.

Proper identification is the responsibility of the attendee. Failure to present proper, valid photo identification (driver’s license or passport) will result in denial of entry with no refund offered.
