    Thinking bout what kind of shirt for fest. Could get a 21st admendment one but would rather support your cause. Are beer fest shirts only gonna be at store weekend of fest?

      Yes shirts will be available a day or two before the festival then afterwards until we sell out.

    Can you give me more information on camping? Are spaces reserved or first come? Grass or parking lot? Thank you.

      Hi Craig,
      Let it grow! Or not. The theme this year is “We’re Legal!” as in celebrating the fact that 21 is the legal drinking age.

    Hi! We will be staying in Fort Bragg – are there any taxi companies or transportation companies that you can suggest to take us between Fort Bragg and Boonville? Or shuttle services? Or public transportation? We know it is about an hour drive, but we are not willing to take any risks! Thanks,

      Hi Crystal,
      We’re glad you’re making the trip to visit us, but since the valley is such an isolated part of Northern California, your transportation options are fairly limited. Taxis and Uber are pretty much nonexistent but feel free to check out http://mendocinotransit.org/ and see if their bus schedules align with your travel plans. The Fort Bragg Rte 60 bus starts in Fort Bragg around 7am and you’d arrive in Boonville at around 10am the walk a mile to the brewery that opens at 11am. Then you could catch the return bus at 3:45pm and be back in Fort Bragg around 6pm. Keep in mind this service between Ft. Bragg and Boonville is ONLY offered Monday-Friday. Hope that helps.

    I was wondering if you were going to serve anything besides beer, like local wines?

    • Steve Miller April 20, 2017 10:13 am #

      Hi Rebecca,
      Although there won’t be any wineries, there will be dozens of ciders to try from 5 different cideries. Hope to see you there!

    Are there in and out privileges and can you bring food into the festival?

    • Steve Miller April 24, 2017 1:43 pm #

      Hi Marie,
      There will be ins and outs, be prepared to show your ID and wristband each time. As for food, no immediate word from the fairgrounds regarding their policy, but there will be plenty of food vendors on hand!

    Hi There! Will there be water stations and can we bring our own water bottles and/or camel baks to fill up? My group and I are very excited!

    Hi I was wondering if we were allowed to bring our own Porta potty’s that would be in our campsites on the trailer because we are just tent camping?
