Event Details

 FAQs:

  • We'll be hosting the VIP session inside the tasting room, which will be closed to the public until after 2:00p.  We will reopen the tasting room at 2 pm to the public.  
  • There are no in/out privileges.  Beer may not cross between the VIP and GA sections.  Once you leave the Outdoor festival area, there is no reentry.  No glass is allowed in the outdoor area.
  • Once you decide to leave the festival the tasting room will be open to the public (after 2:00p), and you may trade in your wristband at the bar for your HESSFEST 9 souvenir glass - don't forget to bring that glass back to any of our MHB locations for $5 fill specials Monday through Thursday.  
  • All attendees (including DD ticket holders) must be 21 years or older and must bring a valid ID as proof with them to the event.  The nature of the event requires that all attendees are of a legal drinking age.  We understand that this runs counter to our normal family-friendly environment, but please leave the kiddos at home for this one.  If you can only get a baby sitter for a limited time, children will be allowed inside our tasting room once it reopens to the public after 2:00p.  Just to clarify: no minors are allowed in the festival area period, or inside the tasting room until after 2:00p.  No refunds will be given to attendees who cannot provide valid ID.  Thank you in advance for your understanding. 
  • No refunds will be given for this event. If you are unable to attend, please let us know and we will donate 100% of your ticket purchase price (i.e. the face value) to the charities we are partnering with. You did a good thing. Thank you.
