Where can I find my tickets?
All ticketing is done via a third-party platform (Eventbrite) and can be found on your eventbrite account. You will receive a confirmation email from Eventbrite once you’ve purchased tickets. This email will have an attachment with the physical tickets you can print, or we can scan these from your smart phone at check in.
What if I forget to bring my tickets?
You do not need to print your physical tickets, we can also scan the QR code from your smartphone, or, we can look you up by first/last name.
Can I transfer my tickets to someone else?
Yes, please email festofales@ lexeffectky.com and we can transfer your tickets. We will need to know the name/email of the CURRENT ticket holder, and the first/last name and email of the person you’d like to transfer the tickets to.
Will the event be cancelled if there’s rain?
No, this event is a “Rain or Shine” event. Unless there are severe thunderstorms or weather, we will still have the event as scheduled, and invite you to join us under the covering of the pavilion!
Do you have to be 21 to attend?
Yes, you must be 21 years old, or older, to attend AND participate in this event. A valid photo ID will be required at check in and must correspond with the name on the tickets.
Where can I park?
There are several pay lots and garages in a 1-2 block radius of the event. Additionally, meters are free after 5:00 PM, and there are a few streets close by with free parking available.
**We encourage using ride-sharing services such as Uber, Lyft, and Taxi to come and go from the event.**
What time does registration open?
Registration opens at 4:00 PM for VIP’s, and 5:00 PM for general admission. Beer will not be poured for the VIP event until 5:00 PM, and not until 6:00 PM for the main event.
What do I get with my ticket purchase?
General admission tickets get 20 draft tastings, a commemorative cup to keep, live music, and more! The VIP lounge ticket gets you access to the VIP pre-event with brews + bites pairings, the open lounge throughout the event (with air conditioning, private bathrooms, and limited seating!), and an after party with live music, a cash bar, and more!
*VIP tickets get you access to the general admission event (and the GA benefits) as well, an additional ticket is not needed for GA if you’ve purchased VIP.
Can I attend the event without purchasing a ticket?
Yes, you can attend the event for free, but if you plan to taste any beer you must have a ticket and a wristband.
Will there be food at this event?
Yes, food trucks and other food vendors will be on site throughout the main event, with items available for purchase. Food is not included in the general admission ticket. Food is included in the VIP Lounge ticket, during the pre-event, only.
Is this event dog friendly?
While the pavilion is dog/pet friendly, we encourage you to leave the four-legged friends at home. This event sees 1,500+ ticket holders and has a lot of moving parts. Should you decide to bring your dogs, they must be leashed at all times, and pet owners are responsible for clean up of any waste.
Will water be available on site?
Yes, free water is available on site during the event via a water filling station. You may bring a water bottle to refill at this station, or use your beer tasting cup.
LexBeerScene, LexEffect Events and all Fest of Ales partners, sponsors, promoters, staff, volunteers, agents, managers and other affiliates encourage all attendees to drink responsibly.
