Indiana Microbrewers Festival is a fundraiser.

$3 from every ticket sold go to our nonprofit Charity Partner, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Indiana.

The rest of your ticket price pays brewers for their beer and for festivals costs, and the remainder benefits the nonprofit Brewers of Indiana Guild's mission to support Indiana's brewing community.

Brewers of Indiana Guild festivals are opportunities to sample local beer and meet local brewers. 

They are not races to drink as much as you can. Anyone who appears to be intoxicated will be denied additional samples and may be deemed to be in violation of local public intoxication statutes.

Don't drink and drive. 

Designated Driver tickets are available, and taxi/Uber/Lyft drivers can drop you off and pick you up at the event. Plan a safe ride home before you go.
