2023 Stout Fest schedule

Join us in celebration of our barrel-aged Imperial Stout, Padishah! Our limited Padishah variants will be released in the taproom. We will also be filling our tap lines with dark malty goodness!

There will be activities and contests throughout the day as well:

11:00am – Taproom opens! Padishah 4pks + all variants are released on a first come, first serve basis.

11:00am Cafe Corazon will be on site putting together delicious beer + taco pairings. The pairing can be purchased between 11am-2pm or preorder here.

12 noon – Beer poking on the outdoor patio. Join us around the fires and get your Stout poked! What is beer poking exactly? A red hot metal poker is put into your beer for a few seconds. The beer head is caramelized brining out flavors of toasted marshmallow goodness. YUM! Beer poking is limited so make sure to get to the taproom by noon.

1:00pm – Stout Fest trivia on the brewery floor! Free for all festival attendees.

2:30pm – Mitten game! Unwrap present and perform seemingly easy tasks – all while wearing mittens. It’s tougher than you think!

3:30pm – Ugly sweater contest! The crown jewel of Stout Fest (outside of beer of course). “Walk the runway” with your creative sweater or costume. Most cheers from the crowd wins!

4:30pm – Beer tasting trivia hosted by Elise! Think you know beer? Prove it! $5 to play and includes an 8oz pour.
