HOW DOES IT WORK?  Like most traditional brewery tasting festivals, we love making these events as accessible to the public to support our fellow food trucks and booths. So this event is split into two main areas: 1) FOOD HALL & NIGHT MARKET which allows for "All Ages" access to the food trucks and shopping area on the main floor inside the Magnuson Park Hangar 30. The Winter Beer Festival the beer tasting experience is held (21+ only) and requries an entry fee of $5 or $25.00. So if you love food trucks and don't want the beer, then you can enjoy yourself at no cost. 2) BEER TASTING HALL & MUSIC STAGE - If you love beer (you get 32 ounces of beer) and want to enjoy a selection of craft beverages with some music, then you will need to purchase a $25 ticket online to be allowed in. Love a full pour? Any beverage on taps is availabel for a full pour option for only 3 beer tokens or $8 pour so taste your way through or stick with one all day long. Tickets will be available online throughout the festiova at the same price, but they will be higher at the door. So buy early and skip the long lines in the chilly weather. We will have a smaller selection of food trucks inside the gated beer garden for the sake of convenience to reduce the need to walk out of the 21+ area, so you can enjoy your beverage and food at the same time.  FAQs Is this event two days?  Yes, it happens on Friday, December 20th from 4pm to 11pm and Saturday, December 21st from 12-9pmruns along the same hours as the Night Market at the Magnuson Park Hangar 30 and requires a ticket to be admitted. There is no sessions, so come one come all, but tickets are limited to ensure we can accommodate all ticket holders with a great tasting experience. ALSO - Please kepe in mind that this is a brewery tasting experience, so tickets will go up and priority goes to our advance ticketholders and will may sell out prior to the event starting, so buy your ticket today. Is the tasting indoors or outdoors?  While the Winter Solstice Night Market is inside the hsitoric Magnuson Park Hanagr 30, the beer festival will be hosting in a heated tented area in the front parking lot with live music. There will be adequate heated cover, but we do live in the PNW, so dress warm and let's get cozy! Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? YES! You MUST be 21+ to enter inside beer tasting hall experience, but it will be all ages in al other areas for the Winter Solstice Night Market which does not require a ticket to enjoy. What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? Public parking and ride shares are preferred, but we want all attendees to drink responsibly, so we prefer ride share like Uber or Lyft or public transportation.  What can I bring into the event? Outside food is allowed inside the beer festival area, given that we are in conjunction with the Winter Solstice  Saturday Market where a large part of food trucks and booths will be outside the gates. Outside alcoholic beverages are not allowed in at any time. What's the refund policy? We do not offer refunds once tickets are purchased. So please read carefully before purchasing.
