How it All Works

Our goal is to make this an affordable, fun event for everyone that promote local music, books, and the artistry of brewing.

Drinking Beer

You’ll need to purchase a taster glass as part of a bundle or individually. I.D. is required upon entrance, and you’ll receive a wristband. Please drink responsibly and sober up before you drive home or arrange for a designated driver or a ride service.

Need help with a ride? Contact one of our staff members. Above all, we want everyone to be safe and have fun.

Buying Books

This year we will be using a ticket system for purchasing books. Tickets are available individually or as a part of bundles. Each book will be priced by the author, most between 2 and 3 tokens.

Some authors will also have other merchandise you can purchase using your credit or debit card or even cash. Check with individual authors for pricing and availability.

Band Merchandise

Some bands will have various merchandise for sale, including albums, t-shirts, and hats, to help you show your support. Most will be able to take either cash or credit, or debit cards.

Pricing details for admission, books, and brews are below. You can purchase your beer tokens and book tickets ahead of time, and they will be waiting for you at the will-call area. Skip the lines and purchase now!
