Over 50 craft beers are available and are served by vendors that usually have additional information (tasting notes, etc.) about the beers they are serving. The beer samples are served in small three to five ounce sized cups. Five or six savory food items and two or three dessert items are also available.
The event mostly takes place in the outdoor Wantilan Pavilion and a small live band provides a few sets of background music.
There are two entrance levels to the festival. A standard ticket includes entry into the event space along with unlimited beer and food samples during the three hour event. A VIP ticket will get you all the benefits of the standard ticket plus access to the air conditioned "Clipper Room" in the nearby Jake's American Bar, plus additional beers, a collectible pint glass, and a few other extras.
The standard ticket was $35 for the spring 2016 event and $45 for the VIP level (plus tax and ticketing fees).
