Event-goers have the chance to try unlimited craft beer samplings with a VIP ticket for $75. You must be 21-years-old or older to purchase one.

General admission tickets that include unlimited craft beer samples and a plastic souvenir glass are $35 but do not include special parking or VIP lounge access.

Proof of age is required.

Ticketholders will receive a green wristband, which will enable the use of the souvenir glass to sample craft beers.

Adults and teenagers ages 13 and older will need to purchase a red wristband for $5.

Children ages 12 and younger may enter free and do not need a wristband but must be accompanied by an adult.

Gates open at 10 a.m. and close at 6 p.m. Beer tents will open at 12 p.m. and close at 5:45 p.m.

“We’ll have lots of kids and family-friendly activities going on,” Mallory Black, chair of the festival committee, said. “Our goal is for everyone who comes through those gates to have a terrific time while also supporting an important local and regional resource — the Albany Museum of Art.”
