Attendees can wander through while they sample sips of over 300 craft beers, premium imports, seasonal drinks and ciders from around the world.

This is your chance to sample more award-winning and specialty beers and ciders than you can purchase. If you don't drink, but still want to attend, for $12 you can gain admission to the event and partake of several non-alcoholic drinks! Being the designated driver has never been sweeter.
