2020 Connecticut Craft Beer Fest at the Oakdale Theatre
July 11 @ 12:00 pm - 9:30 pm
The 2020 Connecticut Craft Beer Fest will be held at the Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford on July 11, 2020 from 12 pm to 9:30 pm. This event is hosted by the CT Brewers Guild.
We will have 60+ CT Breweries participating and once again have them in all three rooms at the Oakdale, plus outdoor space (weather permitting). We have VIP and General Admission Sessions available and there will only 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 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 grant you access to the event from 5pm – 9pm. 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. Designated Driver tickets are also available for all sessions.
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.
For those who completed their CT Beer Trail Passport and collected 50+ stamps, you will receive an email with your FREE VIP ticket to the “VIP Passport session” from 12pm to 4pm.
