Q: How do I reach the Brewfest organizers?
A: Contact us before the Brewfest at 541-463-6000 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: When is the next KLCC Brewfest?
A: February 7 & 8, 2020!
Q: How much does it cost?
A: ADVANCE TICKET SALES ON SALE AT KLCC.ORG MID-DECEMBER THROUGH FEB 6 AT 9 PM.
Q: Can I bring my child to the event?
A: Sorry but no, our temporary liquor license does not allow for underage guests. Everyone who enters the door must be at least 21 years old. No minors, including children or babies.
Q: Where do the proceeds go?
A: All proceeds benefit public radio station KLCC 89.7 FM. This event is KLCC's largest fundraising event of the year.
Q: Why do some of the beers run out?
A: Our Brewfest emphasizes specialty and seasonal brews, and sometimes the breweries only have one keg of a brew available. This means the variety is wonderful, but some brews may not last throughout the weekend, especially if it becomes the "talked about" brew that draws a large crowd. The good news is there are lots of other brews to try. The Brewfest usually offers about 200+ different brews!
Q: What are the Homebrew Competition details?
Yes, there will be a Homebrew Competition before the KLCC Brewfest!
Q: What is involved in VOLUNTEERING?
VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION FOR THE NEXT BREWFEST BEGINS MID-DECEMBER. Stay tuned!

A: The Music Sale takes place inside the KLCC Brewfest so a ticket is required to get in. You can sample beers and look through records and CDs all at the same time.
