Q: Do I need tickets?
A: If you want to enjoy the beer, yes you do! We do welcome everyone, however, including kids and non-drinkers! To be served beer, you must purchase a ticket and have a wristband. No one will be served beer without a wristband. All ticket holders will get wristbands at Brewfest gates with valid state issued photo ID.
Q: How do I get tickets?
A: Tickets will be available at early bird rates online and at the Lander Chamber Visitor Center & Business Complex at 100 N. 1st Street. Tickets can also be purchased the day of the event at Brewfest gates. Brewfest accepts credit cards and cash. All ticket holders will get wristbands at Brewfest gates with valid state issued photo ID.
Q: Can I bring the kids?
A: Yes! While the beer drinking is for ticket holders, we encourage you to bring out the whole family!
Q: Can I bring my own beer glass?
A: No. Please leave all non-Brewfest drinking vessels at home. Brewers will only pour into 2021 glass pints (available for purchase at entry) and cups issued to all ticketholders.
Q: Where there be food there?
A: Yes. And in 2021, we’ll be stepping up our food game by prioritizing high quality and diverse food vendors from across Fremont County and the state of Wyoming who can provide food worthy of pairing with fine craft beer! Come hungry!
A: For locals we recommend walking or biking. If you will be driving, a very limited amount of parking will be available in City Park itself, with overflow parking available along Fremont, 3rd, and other adjacent streets. Please be respectful of residents when you park.
Q: What if it rains or snows?
A: Since Brewfest will be happening in August this year, inclement weather is unlikely. Nevertheless, while Lander summers are typically hot and dry, this is Wyoming, and well, you never know…. Whatever the case, Lander Brewfest will be held rain, snow, or shine. All ticket sales are final.
Q: Can the mountain altitude and dry climate affect me?
A: Absolutely. Lander is more than a mile high, situated where Wyoming’s high desert meets the Wind River Mountains. We are high and dry, and the sun is intense. We strongly encourage you to remain hydrated — with water.
Q: What if I cannot drive or bike home?
A: If you have had too much to drink, please do not drive or bike home! Brewfest will provide a Designated Driver Shuttle service. The shuttle will pick up and drop off folks from Lander hotels during Brewfest. See signs at Brewfest for more information.
REMEMBER: Keep Brewfest safe and fun for everyone — please drink responsibly!
