The details are in! Central Waters has announced its official 18th Anniversary party for Saturday, January 30th at 3pm. Tickets ARE REQUIRED THIS YEAR and will go on sale Monday, December 14 at 6pm CST via Brown Paper Tickets.
Details from the brewery:
Come join us on January 30th, 2016 from 3pm until 9pm as we hold our annual Anniversary Party! Featuring the release of “18”, our barrel aged anniversary stout, live music and food vendors!
*NEW THIS YEAR*
Due to space restraints, we are forced to make this a ticketed only event, even for folks not buying the anniversary beer. We are required to limit the attendance this year, so here are the 2 options you have to attend…
1 – Buy a ticket for the Anniversary Beer – 18 – for the same price as last year – $5. This ticket will grant you the ability to buy up to 8 bottles of 18 for $15 each AND get you in the door. NO PROXY BUYING, as these also count as general admission. One per person only.
2 – Buy a general admission ticket. This ticket will be $13 each, will grant you entrance to the event AND get you 2 draft beers of your choice, BUT NOT THE ABILITY TO BUY 18. You may buy up to 2 General Admission tickets per person.
YOU DO NOT NEED BOTH. JUST ONE OF THESE TWO OPTIONS.
YOU DO NEED ONE OF THESE TWO TICKETS TO GET IN.
We understand this seems more complex, but attendance has increased by approximately 1,000 people every year, and if you were here last year, you know we do not have room for another 1,000!
IF YOU CHOOSE OPTION 1-
You may begin entrance to the event at 3pm. Sales of 18 will go from 3pm until 7pm, you can arrive at anytime in that window to get your beer, if you have a ticket, there will be up to 8 bottles waiting for you, for $15 each. You will hold onto your ticket, and present it to the folks manning the 18 sales station.
IF YOU CHOOSE OPTION 2-
The doors open at 3pm. You may enter anytime after that. The fine folks manning the door will take your ticket and present you with 2 tickets you may use for 2 beers of your choice.
In option 1, we will be donating the money received for the ticket to a local charity.
In option 2, we will be donating $5 of the ticket price to a local charity, and using the other $8 as “pre-paid” beer. Since we are ticketing the entire event, we want to make sure you have some skin in the game to help guarantee attendance!
Once again, after 7pm, any unsold 18 will go up for sale, first come first served.
We will also be running free shuttles between Guus On Main in Stevens Point, and these following Stevens Point hotels- Comfort Suites, Econolodge, and Holiday Inn.
This event is 21 and over and cash only.
Tickets for either option go on sale on December 14, 2015 at 6pm.
Again, you do not need both, just one option, either the ticket to buy bottles of 18, or a general admission ticket. Without one of these, you will not be allowed in.
We are looking forward to it, hope you are too! See you in January!
