Ticket Package Details

Platinum Session – $100

Starting at 11AM and limited to only 200 guests, Platinum Guests will have one hour to explore the festival including beers, food trucks, entertainment, etc. with minimal lines or wait time. This is a great opportunity to speak with brewmasters, sample limited-edition beers and enjoy the festival at your own pace.

Platinum Guests will also receive 10 additional tasting tickets (35 tickets total), and access to 10 limited-edition infusions.

Hardcore Craft will be supplying 10 unique and limited infusions that will only be offered to Platinum Guests. These infusions are a way to showcase the beers’ ability to transform under the introduction of a new flavor including spices, fruits, vegetables and teas, and will be exclusive to the Platinum Session.

After the first hour, 400 VIP Guests will gain access to the festival at noon and the GA session will start at 1:15PM.

Rookies Presents

One of the biggest requests from last year was to add more space and we have done just that. We are NOT adding more people (3000 Max) but have added an outdoor tent to allow for More Food Trucks, More Beer, and More Bands. 🔥 🍻

Daily Herald

Exciting news update! The Daily Herald has announced they are partnering with us to put on a Free Beer Cooking demonstration in the “Tap Chef Lounge” starting a 2pm. Come watch as the chef shows you how to prepare meals with one common ingredient…BEER. Samples will be handed-out but quantities are limited. No extra tickets necessary… just part of the experience.
