How does Northwest Brewfest work?

Northwest Brewfest offers over a dozen brewers and fermenters to sample from in an eighty-minute session at Twisted Hippo. The lineup of all event particpants are below. One ticket provides you with one eighty-minute session to sample as many locally-sourced libations you desire.

  • Session 1: 12PM - 1:20PM
  • Session 2: 1:30PM - 2:50PM
  • Session 3: 3:00PM - 4:20PM

And since it's Halloween, come in costume and receive a free beer at Templestowe Pub (3135 W Montrose Ave)

Bonus: Twisted Hippo's back event space has an array of classic arcade and pinball games for you to enjoy for free while you are sampling. After your session ends, you are welcome to hang out at Twisted Hippo for a bite or head over to Templestowe for a free beer (costume required).
