Is the event 21+?

Yes, of course. It's a beer festival! Make sure to have your ID for entry.

Is the event free? 

Yes, the party is FREE to attend. We will have live music from The Innocent Boys from 3-4p, then again from 5p-6p,  Hoagies & Hops located right inside the brewery will have food specials and their full menu, plus 16 oz pints and half pints of 30+ beers will be available for purchase.

Are there free samples of these awesome, limited, super rare beers?

3 oz samples will be included with the purchased glassware & sample package ONLY. Half pints and pints are available for purchase without the package. Buy the sample package HERE.

How does the glassware & sample package work? 

If you purchased the glassware & sample package you will receive a commemorative 11.5 oz Rastal Teku glass, Flat12 branded touchscreen gloves, and 3 oz. samples of 30+ beers for the duration of the event. Please bring your ticket and ID with you and check in at the station in the beer garden upon arrival. If you have purchased a package, you can pick it up early beginning Wednesday January 17th during open hours. If a package is not purchased, attendees may purchase half pints and pints of any beer, but samples are not included.

Will the glass & sample packages be available at the door?

We're close to selling out, so we suggest getting them while they're available in advance HERE.

Is there free parking?

We highly recommend taking Lyft or Uber to and from the event. For your designated driver, there is plenty of free street parking around the brewery. Check out the map below.

What food is available?

It's a beer fest with lots of high gravity beers to enjoy, so please plan on eating! Hoagies & Hops is the new east coast style hoagie shop located inside the taproom. They’ll have their full menu, and a variety of $5 five inch hoagies and $7 five inch cheesesteaks. Another note: Please stay hydrated. There will be free water stations located at each beer station around the brewery and taproom.

Can I fill my growler?

Growler fills of core beers will be available plus some other festival beers TBA

What time does the band play? 

If you haven’t heard the The Innocent Boys, they’re great drinking music! They’ll play two sets; from 3-4p, then again from 5-6p.

Can I bring my dog?

Although we are very dog-friendly at Flat12, dogs and beer festivals don't mix. Our Anniversary Beer Festival is one of our biggest events of the year and highly attended, so it's not the best environment for pooches. We suggest leaving furry friends at home for this one. (The four-legged kind, your bearded friend is welcome.)

Are there any special bomber releases at the event?

We're glad you asked! We are very excited to release our Official Sixth Anniversary Beer, a Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrel aged Pogue's Run Porter (qty 220) and a super special Maple Barrel Aged Pinko Russian Imperial Stout (qty 80) both in hand wax-dipped bombers with custom cherrywood labels. These bombers will be on sale first come first served, so get here early to ensure you get one!

See you there!
