Designated Driver Tickets are $5.00 in advance or at the door and allow access to the venue, all concert performances and food trucks!

Tokens will be sold until 6:30pm. Tickets and tokens are non-refundable. However, the tokens are good at the next year's festival; you may save them for next year or the year after that.

when do ticket and token sales stop?
Sales will stop at 6:30pm each night.

when do taps close?
Taps close at 8:00pm each night. This means no beer is poured after those times. You can hang out for a little while after that but we all have to go home at SOME point… maybe an hour later? Thanks, guys.

Neither the token sales booth nor the food booths accept checks. Credit cards are allowed, however.

It’s quite possible. Be prepared for beers to run out toward the end of the Festival. If you are coming to taste specific beers we recommend you come earlier in the day.

how do brewers qualify for the event?
The Spokane Brewers Festival is open to craft breweries as defined by the Brewers Association: annual production of six million barrels of beer or less; less than 25 percent of the craft brewery is owned or controlled (or equivalent economic interest) by an alcoholic beverage industry member that is not itself a craft brewer; and a brewer that has a majority of its total beverage alcohol volume in beers whose flavor derives from traditional or innovative brewing ingredients and their fermentation (flavored malt beverages are not considered beers). If a brewery meets these guidelines, they are welcome to apply HERE.
