Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the gate. Tickets include a souvenir pint glass and craft beer tasting. On the Facebook page, it states that samples are included in the ticket price.

Additional 16 oz. pours will be available for $5 each. The participating restaurants may offer free samples of signature items and will have small plates available for $5-$8.

A designated driver entry price for $10 will be offered.
