VIP Guests: 2:00 to 8:00 p.m.
General Admission Guests: 3:00 to 8:00 p.m.


Your admission includes six (6) three-ounce samples. Additional samples are available for $2.00/ea. Full beers are $8.00/ea.


This is a cashless event! What does that mean? Upon entry, HCCBF guests will receive an RFID wristband preloaded with six (6) three-ounce taste credits. Purchases, including beer samples, full beers, food, and festival merchandise, will be made using your RFID wristband. To make purchases, guests will need to add a credit or debit card to their wristband – similar to opening a tab at a bar – only you don’t need to sign-out or tip anyone who you leave. Credit or debit cards can be added in advance, or upon checking in at the front gate. Your card is automatically charged for all purchases. To open your account and register your credit or debit card, click here.
