2019 Connecticut Craft Beer Fest at the Oakdale Theatre
March 23 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The 2019 Connecticut Craft Beer Fest will be held at the Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford on March 23 from 12 noon to 8 pm. This event is hosted by the C Brewers Guild.
We are back, bigger & better than our event last year, expanding to all three rooms at the Oakdale plus outdoor space (weather permitting). We have added a second GA session and there will be a limited amount of tickets available per session. This was a SOLD OUT event last year, so BUY EARLY to celebrate the booming craft beer scene by sampling beer from 60+ of our very own CT breweries.
All VIP & GA guests will receive a commemorative tasting glass with a sample of a collaboration beer brewed by the Board of Directors of the CT Brewers Guild! VIP tickets are $45, which will get you early entrance into the festival where you’ll be able to sample exclusive vintage, barrel aged and special brews not available during general admission. VIP tickets also grant you entrance to GA Session #2, immediately following the VIP Session.
With only 500 VIP tickets available, take advantage of this extra hour to chat in a small setting with the brew masters themselves and your fellow beer enthusiasts and be the first to purchase CT Brewers Guild merchandise. General Admission tickets are available for $35 and Designated Driver tickets are $15. All proceeds generated from the festival go to the CT Brewers Guild, an organization by brewers and for brewers, to help further the goals of the Craft Beer movement in CT.
