Split Rock – Great Brews Classic Beer Festival

30 October 2009

BeerFest2005 010 I’ve been holding off on posting this because the details have been changing quite a bit….but what they are now calling the “New & Improved Great Brews Classic Beer Festival” will be held Nov 21st & 22nd 2009 from 12PM-4PM.  For anyone who’s attended their festivals before, this was formerly the Great American Beer Festival…but this year it’s different.  First and foremost, Saturday’s event is pre-sale tickets ONLY!  According to what they are telling me, if you do not buy a ticket in advance for Saturday, you will not get in!  This is being done to limit ticket sales so hopefully Saturday will not be such a zoo.  Sunday ticket sales seem to be open to all.  Clicky HERE for info and advanced ticket purchase.  Pricing looks like it will be $33 in advance and $45 Day of Festival for Sat and $28 in advance and $35 at the door Sunday (UP from $25 last year!), so you may just want to buy in advance anyway.  Here’s the latest list of breweries:

No Lion? And we all know that Chico, CA wishes they had a brewery that has been around for 137 years...Straub is from St. Marys,PA, obviously!

Nope...I thinkk the Split Rock festival has become difficult for some breweries to justify. Yes...I know Straub is not Chico...I did leave it from previous years in the hope that they will fix it (and not just me fixing it).
