  • WARNING: VIB℠ beers are for consumption by VIB℠ ticket holders only. We have had many issues with one person in a group buying a VIB℠ ticket and sharing the beer samples with everybody else in the group who only have General Admission tickets. If you are caught doing this all members of your party will be ejected from the festival without refund.

    *Those of you who have been attending the VIB℠ area in the past may have noticed the increase from 200 to 250 and wonder how we plan to fit more people into the VIB℠ Tent. Not to worry! The VIB℠ area is being moved to the Schwabenhof restaurant hall and will have more than double the space of the old tent. We did this to alleviate the crowding experienced during the first hour of the festival. Just a note that we have never run out of any VIB℠ beers before 3PM and still have about 3/4 available at the end of the festival, exclusive of lottery beers.

Ticket prices include ticket service fees.

You must be at least 21 years of age to attend the festival

Please drink responsibly and don't drive if you've had too much to drink.

Designated drivers

Designated drivers get in free when they accompany paying attendees. While they can't drink beer there will be plenty of specialty sodas available from Sprecher - Official Sponsor of the Designated Driver Program, and other vendors as well as entertainment.

Shuttle Buses

Check out our shuttle bus service from around Milwaukee County! No need to drive after the festival.
