Join the Brewers of Indiana Guild for the 11th annual Winterfest, featuring a new Friday night Exclusive Specialties Session with a lineup of beers that won’t be poured during the traditional Saturday session.

Though the old Early Bird hour is gone, you can still enjoy the variety of unique beers, the opportunity to mingle with the brewers, and the smaller crowd at the Exclusive Specialties Session on Friday with an additional two extra hours of former Early Bird benefits, from 6 – 9 p.m. Look forward to short lines, plenty of room, and amazing beers from 60+ Hoosier breweries and guests.

The Saturday Session (2 – 6 p.m.) will again host 100+ Hoosier breweries and guests pouring hundreds of beers in a lively setting along with one-of-a-kind cask beers, local vendors, and much more.

Proceeds support the Brewers of Indiana Guild’s mission to promote and educate Hoosier breweries, with a portion also going to the Guild’s Political Action Committee which helps us legislate on their behalf.

$3 from every ticket sold will also benefit our charity partner, Joy’s House.

No refunds or exchanges. This is an all-weather (rain, snow, sleet, or shine) 21+ event.
