The Silent Auction Will Be Back!!
Except perhaps to score a tshirt, the ONLY reason to bring a credit card, cash or check is to go home with one (or more) amazing collectibles! Thanks to Mike Brown Productions for this part of the event, which will directly fund our charity this year, North Urban Human Services Alliance (NUHSA). A partial list of Mike’s offerings are on the website!

10. Pretzel necklaces. Just because kids can’t come doesn’t mean you have to accessorize like a grownup. Wearing snacks around your neck is totally fashion forward here.
9. T-Shirts are back. We will have a limited number of tshirts available for sale; if you have started a collection, you’ll definitely want this one!
8. The silent auction. Mike Brown Productions is back with some fantastic stuff. One of only two reasons to bring extra funds. Go home with something, knowing that all proceeds go directly to NUHSA.
7. Live music. The best parties have real musicians providing the soundtrack to your day. We are excited to bring you The Mark DeFresne Band to round out your BrewFest.
6. Happy people. We’ve put in our order for sunshine, but even with our first rain last year, people had a blast. What could be better than friends and neighbors on a Saturday afternoon, experiencing great beer, good food, and live music together. If you’re not smiling, we’re very, very concerned about you.
5. Supporting neighborhoods. This event seeds next year’s event, but also supports the four 4-corners neighborhoods. And a charity (the North Urban Human Services Alliance this year).
4. You get to vote, and it’s not political! Use colorful stickers instead of filling in circles, and talk up your favorite tastes to other BrewFesters! Influence rules!! Trophies go to brewers who run out of a beer first and have the most tokens, but the Golden Growler goes to the brewer who brings the Crowd Favorite. And none of that pesky waiting-for-returns… the Growler is awarded that night. Show your favorite brewer some love!
3. It’s an all-inclusive ticket. A mere $35 gets you everything (drinks, food, AND entertainment) except auction items and tshirts, which means you don’t have to shell out money at Taco Time on the way home, unless you promised your kids (or your dog) you would. .
2. No lines. This is the most intimate, lovely, local beer tasting event you will ever attend. Contrary to other, larger beer festivals, the 4-Corners BrewFest stays small. That means you can not only get served quickly, but you can also get to know who’s pouring!
