Mt. Hope Brewfest – May 14, 2011

3 May


The Mt. Hope Brewfest is coming up soon! Spend a few hours and enjoy craft beer, food, and entertainment.

Join other lovers of beer on May 14, 2011 for one of two sessions. The first session is from 11am-3pm and the second session is from 4pm-8pm. Tickets (for you imbibers out there) are $40 in advance, $45 at the door. If you are the DD (I don’t envy you, but appreciate you!) then the entry fee is $15 in advnace, $20 at the door.

The entrance fee includes all the buffet food and musical enjoyment you can enjoy. For those of you paying for a drinking entry you’ll also receive a tasting glass. Make sure you purchase your tickets in advance to guarantee you’ll get a tasting glass! Beer just tastes better from a glass.

Naturally, make sure you are of legal age to drink. No shenanigans. Play nicely. No peeing behind the buildings. Ahem.

Check it out! I’m sure we’ll be there–babysitter dependent, of course.
