This event is limited to only 300 attendees. We want to welcome as many people as possible, but don’t want you to feel crowded, as this should be a fun, relaxed event. $40 general admission ticket gets you into the show and a sample cup that can be used for unlimited samples from the various breweries on site.

We are also offering a $15 ticket for people under 21, designated drivers, or those who are just listening to the music. These tickets do not include any alcohol. No alcohol can be consumed at The Glass Jug with this ticket.

– This event is 100% outdoors. It is in August. We’ll have water available, but please hydrate and bring sunscreen. The first couple of hours will be in the sun before we get some shade.
– Please feel free to bring lawn chairs and/or blankets to set up in the beer garden to listen to the music.
– This event is for hoppy beer lovers. Each brewery will be bringing a couple different hop-forward beers – IPAs or otherwise. So, if you’re not into hops, this event is probably not for you.
– No outside alcohol will be allowed
– You may enter and exit the beer garden as needed, as long as you still have your wristband. Otherwise, we cannot allow re-entry.
– Non-alcoholic drinks and snacks will be available for purchase inside The Glass Jug
