Is this a 21+ event?

Yes it is.  Please make sure you bring a valid ID to prove you are wise beyond your years or, at the very least, 21 years beyond September 11th, 1994.  We must card everyone so please take it as a compliment when you are asked by our volunteers.  Designated driver’s must be 21 years of age as well.  

Is there a designated driver ticket available?

Yes!  We will sell designated driver tickets for $20.00.  Please purchase DD tickets along with your regular admission tickets online or at Animal House PRIOR to the event.  The DD ticket will include some non-alcoholic offerings as well as all of the food pairings and musical guests that will be featured throughout the evening.  You will also get major points and perhaps the next hall pass from your beloved designated drinker.  Designated driver’s must be 21 years of age.

We will have extra bike racks available for your parking pleasure as well.

Where can I stay if I’m coming from out of town or would like to make a night of it?

Where can I find the Fall Harvest Brewfest artwork?

Signed artwork from Fort Collins’ own, Johnny Benson, will be available at the event.  If you are unable to attend, please contact us and we can arrange something for you.

Yes!  Long sleeves, short sleeves, you can cut ’em off for no sleeves.  We’ll have some great new designs for you to choose from.  Artwork will be available for purchase as well.

Are children or babies welcome?

We love jelly beans, but unfortunately no.  Kids are welcome at the Odell Fall Harvest Brew release event on September 21st, but not at the brewfest on the 23rd.

Can I bring my pooch? 

At the brewfest, no.  At the Fall Harvest Brew release party at Odell, YES!

A note from FHB:  Craft brews are both nutritious and delicious but a meal they do not make.  We will have food pairings available to explore the limits of your taste buds, as well as several food trucks where you can purchase larger portions.  Make sure you have some food in your belly to work with the higher ABV content in these delicous brews!

Cheers to ya!!  See you soon!
