As with our previous beer and music festivals, admission is absolutely free to come out and enjoy an afternoon of great music.  If you wish to enjoy the food and beverage offered outside, you will purchase tokens from our sales tent and use those tokens throughout the event to purchase tasters, half pours and full pints of the more than 40 different beers as well as your choice of one of our delicious Brat Party platters.  

So first things first: Step up and get your tokens from our token and retail sales booth.  

You will find this tent along the front parking lot of Big Dog's Draft House.  

Tokens are available for 10 for $10 and are valid both inside and outside on Saturday, October 28, 2017.  The commemorative DOGtober Beer Fest pint glass is required for beer tastings and is available for purchase for $5 each.

We do offer a few different options that will allow you to hit the ground running as well as save a little money, too.

The Starter Package will get you 30 tokens plus a commemorative Big Dog's DOGtober Beer Fest pint glass for $34, saving you $1 from the cost if you purchased them separately.  This is a very popular option for a couple when paired with an extra pint glass.

The Deluxe Package is an even better deal as it not only gets you 30 tokens and a commemorative pint glass, but also gets you one of our cool special edition Big Dog's t-shirts, for just $58.  This saves you $2 from the cost if you purchased each of the items separately.

The Ultimate Package is our best package as it not only gets you 30 tokens, the commemorative pint glass, and the festival t-shirt, but it also gets you five tickets in the Big Dog's Prize Raffle, all for just $65.This saves you $5 from the cost if you purchased each of the items separately.

We also offer a 30 token refill for just $29, saving you $1.  

Be sure to check out our retail offerings, specially priced for the festival.  We will have hats, mens and ladies t-shirts, bumper stickers and more available for sale.

We will be accepting cash and credit cards at the sales booth.  Gift cards and rewards cards are not valid for outdoor purchases.
