Education, kinship -- and beer! This unique weekend experience will include beer sampling, educational seminars, dinner, an overnight at the Allerton estate, breakfast, and a hike on Sunday. 

New this year – several registration options are available! Come out Saturday afternoon ($5) to enjoy tastings (drink tickets will be available upon arrival) and mingle with brewers from 11 regional breweries. Educational seminars are included in your ticket, or just enjoy the afternoon (1-5pm) with good company! Stick around for a delicious six-course meal with beer pairings (6pm), and enjoy late-night games (cards, shuffle board, pool) in the basement Rec Room. Cap-off the weekend with breakfast (8-10am) and a hike (10:15am) on Sunday morning.

We hope you can join for this rare opportunity to learn from – and talk with – beer experts from around the region!
