Three years. Can you believe it?! We have come an incredibly long way since 2012 when we began selling delicious fresh hoppy creations and decadent dark beers ten gallons at a time.
We have never been able to stockpile enough beer to throw a proper celebration - until now!
On June 13th we will assemble a large and varied draft list of some of our very favorite beers, along with a number of surprises, food, and entertainment!
When? June 13th, 2015 from 1 PM to 5 PM.
Where? On the grounds at Tree House Brewing Company.
What? A party to celebrate our new brewery, and share beers with those who have supported us so wonderfully since our inception.
Ticket holders will receive 12 drink tickets redeemable for any beer available at the festival. Pours will be between five and eight ounces depending upon the strength and availability of the beer.
BT's Smokehouse will prepare food for festival guests, all inclusive and all you can eat. He plans a meal of whole hog stuffed with pulled pork, brisket, and an assortment of sides!
We also have an incredible line-up of entertainment for the day: The Pencils, from Monson, will provide an eclectic mix of rock through the ages. The Feel Good drift, featuring Dean's son Alex on lead vocals and guitar, will take us into the afternoon singing along. Livestock will close the festival, a bluegrass style group that guarantees to have your toes tapping!
Tentative Draft List (Subject to additions & subtractions) -

How will tickets work? 150 tickets will be offered at the brewery on a first come, first served basis on Thursday, May 28th beginning at 4 PM. Ticket purchases are one per person and they are non-refundable and non-transferrable. Single ticket purchasers may also purchase a double ticket, for entry to a person of their choice (friend/significant other). Additionally, we will offer 100 tickets for sale on Eventbrite on a first come, first served basis starting at 9 PM on Thursday, May 28th. Only single ticket purchases will be available online. One per person - Purchasers of in-person tickets attempting to purchase online tickets will have their order cancelled. On the day of the festival ticket holders must present a valid ID at the gate to gain entry (so we can corroborate their name with our guest list), along with their ticket . Only the purchaser of a double ticket must show ID to gain entry - their guest must show ID to verify age, but it's their choice who they choose to invite.
How much? Tickets are $125 each or $250 for a double ticket. Tickets are all inclusive of food and the twelve drink tickets as provided. There will be about 150 tickets available to the public at the on-site sale. 100 tickets will be available via EventBrite. Double tickets count as... two tickets!
What is the link for on-line sales?
On-line sales begin Thursday at 9 PM. THIS link takes you to the ticket page.
Designated drivers. Ticket purchasers are entitled to one free designated driver ticket. Double ticket holders are also entitled to one designated driver ticket. We strongly encourage the use of designated drivers for the event. Designated drivers will have the option to purchase food from vendors other than BT's Smokehouse and an assortment of non-alcoholic beverages. Simply Divine Mobile Cafe from Monson will offer gourmet grilled cheese for sale to designated drivers - or any attendee, should they find themselves craving a bit of gooey deliciousness.
Though tickets are non-transferrable, we are willing to make exceptions for extenuating circumstances. If, for some reason, you are unable to attend the festival, please e-mail the brewery directly and we will work with you to allow a transfer or to release the tickets for resale.
There are several options for camping nearby - Sunset View Campground / Partridge Hollow / etc. Also, Sturbridge is teeming with great lodging options.
The event is rain or shine!

This is our first festival and we have given it a LOT of thought. That said, we do understand that the needs of guest may vary so suggestions are more than welcome!
Please stay tuned as we will add additional details as the festival approaches!
