Ways to Participate

Brewery Booth

Join your peers in the craft beer with a festival brewery booth. Get your brands in front of more than 50,000 adoring fans over the course of four sessions. New for 2023: You will have the opportunity to serve up to five beers via draught or packaged product from your space, and the opportunity to serve one additional packaged “beyond beer” product (Seltzer, Cider, Hard Kombucha). Only beer may be served via draught at brewery booths. Breweries wishing to serve more than one “beyond beer” product can substitute those products (packaged only) for up to five of the six potential beverages allowed to be served from your space. You must serve at least one beer at your brewery booth.

We make the process as easy as possible by providing access to the MicroStar keg program for no-cost access to kegs for festival beers. We also work to alleviate shipping costs for your festival beers by providing over 25 different festival beer drop-off points that will consolidate your beer shipments and send them to the festival on your behalf.

  • BA Member Cost: $250
  • Non-member Cost: $500

Registration cost includes a 6′ inline pouring table and up to 4 festival badges for booth staff. Volunteers are also available to assist with beer pouring.

Meet The Brewer Booth

Meet The Brewer booths are provided with larger pouring spaces and additional credentials to accommodate more brewery staff. These spaces are required to have members of the brewery team pouring your beers at all times. Available to BA members only.
