You've got questions, we've got answers!

When are tickets available?

Tickets are available online only, starting at 9am MDT on Friday, April 25th. For your best chance at scoring tickets, please have this site up and ready before 9am!

I was on this site at 9am and the tickets said "Pending" right away. What gives?

Last year, tickets to SourFest sold out in under 1 minute, and due to space and beer constraints, we unfortunately cannot offer enough tickets to support demand. We set the max tickets per person to 2 because we want as many sour beer fans as possible to be able to attend the festival! If you weren't able to get tickets to this year's SourFest, we hope you'll join us at one of our other sour beer events! Keep an eye on our Monthly Mash and Facebook page for details.

Are children allowed?

We can no longer allow children or babies, so please get a sitter for your little ones...this includes non-human children, so please get a dog-sitter, too!

Are discount tickets available for designated drivers?

Because this event is for charity, all tickets are full-priced. But if you would like to buy a ticket for your DD, we are happy to offer them non-alcoholic beverages!

What are my transportation options for getting to the event?

There is very limited parking, so please bike or take the bus!

Do I have to bring my printed ticket?

No, you may save time and paper and bring your ticket on your wicked smaht phone!

Will there be food?

Yes, tasty food will be available for purchase from Front Range Catering and Savory Cuisines.

What time is last call?

We'll ring the last-call bell at 4:30, and no beer will be served after 4:45, so drink up, buttercup!

What charity does this festival benefit?

Proceeds from SourFest will benefit the Meyer family. Our good friend Matt Meyer has been in the craft beer scene for years and has a three-year-old son with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Their family is amazingly strong but needs help during Owen's long-term battle. We donate the proceeds from all of our festivals to organizations in our community, but we especially love helping individuals, and we are so pleased to be able to give back to Matt who gives so much to the craft community!

Is my ticket transferrable?

Yes! The name on the ticket does not need to match the name on the ID.

What is the refund policy?

Because the we donate the proceeds from all our festivals to charity, we do not issue refunds.
Thank you for your understanding and support!
