Stay tuned for our official 2018 date!
A special thank you to our breweries, entertainment and volunteers that made this event GREAT!
How do I get my ticket and how much are they?
Tickets are available NOW! All festival guests must have a ticket to enter. Tickets can be pre-purchased through BrownPaperTickets until 10pm Friday, May 5, 2017. After that time, all tickets need to be purchased at the festival entrance at 2640 Pomona Blvd, Pomona. On-site tickets will begin at 11:30am on Saturday, May 6, 2017. Unlimited 4 oz pours and commerative glass for VIP recipients. Unlimted pours for general admission attendees.

Designated driver tickets are $10 and do not permit any alcoholic consumption. Anyone with a designated driver ticket is found to be drinking alcohol will be ejected from the festival.
What does my ticket get me?
A general admission festival ticket gets you into the festival at 1pm, and a keepsake tasting glass.
Unlimited pours of festival beer will only be poured into an official festival tasting glass.
Complimentary soda and water are also available. Food is available for purchase from a number of vendors.
A designated driver ticket gets you into the festival at any time with access to food purchases, music, complimentary soda, water and fun! No alcohol will be served to anyone with a designated driver ticket.
Everyone needs a valid photo ID with proof of age (21+) to be admitted with a VIP of general admission ticket. Sorry, no excuses or exceptions!
What is the advantage of purchasing a VIP ticket?
VIP tickets get you into the festival an hour early and get you access to a whole bunch of rare beers from some of our participating breweries.
Where is the event held?
The event takes place on a mixed area of grass, concrete and gravel at the historic Phillips Mansion. It is outdoors and fully exposed to the weather - be sure to dress appropriately. Hats, sunscreen, and comfortable shoes are encouraged.
Make sure to keep an eye on weather forecast and plan accordingly; hats and sunscreen for a clear day and an umbrella in case there is any drizzle. Rain or shine, Fiesta and Craft Beer goes on!
Can I transfer my ticket to a friend?
Sure - the name on the ticket doesn't matter. What matters is that all festival guests have a ticket and an ID proving they are 21+ for general or VIP admission.
Can I bring my non-human friend?
Sorry, but only humans are allowed at the event - no pets please.
Can I bring my own chair/cooler/blanket, etc.?
Sorry, there's just not enough space for folks to bring their own stuff. There is limited seating available near food vendors and entertainment. A small blanket would be okay but remember to be considerate of the limited space at this event.
Also prohibited are:
* Outside food or drink (pretzel necklaces OK)
* Illegal drugs, chemicals, or fireworks
* Unapproved marketing material
* Other items as determined by security
Security reserves the right to inspect bags and to requests guests return prohibited items to their car prior to entry. Non-cooperation may lead to ejection from the event grounds.
Complimentary soda and water are available to all festival guests and food is available for purchase. Food is not included in your ticket purchase.
Can I get smashed?
Nope. All festival guests are expected to drink responsibly. Any guest who is believed to be intoxicated when entered the festival will be denied entry without a refund for their ticket purchase. So, no pre-gaming, OK?
Any guest who is found intoxicated or causing general disturbance will be asked to leave the festival without a refund.
What's the parking situation?
Parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no charge for parking. If you get here early, you get to park closer to the event. Later arrivals sometimes mean a little bit of hike. Wear comfortable footwear!
What are my transportation options?
Carpooling is encouraged! Parking is limited, plus you will be enjoying some of the finest craft beer SoCal has to offer. Play it safe and designate a driver who will enjoy free soda and water and get you home safely.
Even better, let a professional do the driving! Uber and Lyft are great options - just check with their app.
