We're throwing our biggest party of the year right here at the brewery! WABF is a festival to celebrate the unique flavor profiles of wood barrel-aged beer. Limited & rare, old favorites & new experiments. Be on the forefront of Brewery Vivant bourbon barrel aged projects, wine barrel-aged ales, oak-aged sours. People come from near and far to taste these treats. Make sure you're part of the party!


Rain or Shine! We've got tents!

Two sessions (same beers at both) || afternoon Noon-3p // evening 5-8p ||

Tickets are $40 and include 10 tasting tokens in your collector's edition tasting glass. Add'l tokens for sale ($2.50/ea). Monk Club members get $10 discount when using their unique promo code.

Over 20 beers to sample and enjoy with friends, family, neighbors, and fellow beer travelers.

Vivant festival food available if hunger should arise.

First opportunity to purchase limited bottles of wood-aged beers (some new, some old favorites, some made for fest)

21+ event.

Pub is open as usual on Saturday, but festival grounds are separated. Sorry, there will be no brewery tours this day.

Great beer, great friends, great times.



Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Yes, 21+. Please have your ID with you no matter how old or young you think you look!!

But what about my kids or my dog, can they come?

This is an event focused on adult beverages. If you can strap the kiddo to you (aka freshies) then we'll make an exception. No doggos though, the fest grounds just aren't big enough for pups and leashes and strollers oh my.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Ride, walk or take the bus! We have bike racks on Cherry Street. We are on the bus route (6, 5, 14 all within walking distance!) Parking can be tricky in urban neighborhoods, but street parking is available first come, first served. Festival entrance is on Lake Drive across from Congress Elementary park.
