Q: How do I transfer my registration to someone else or to a different session?

A: Use these instructions from Eventbrite to easily transfer your ticket to a new name. You can also transfer sessions using their system (change in price may be applicable). Also -- you can just send someone your ticket directly via email if you can no longer go -- all they need is the barcode!

Q: Is the event rain or shine?

A: YES -- we'll see you rain or shine at Capital BrewFest!

Q: Can I bring in food? Water?

A: Outside food is OK. Water, in unopened bottles only, are OK--no other outside beverages are allowed. 

Q: Can I bring a bag? Is there a bag/coat check?

A: There is no bag or coat check available on site. Small (think like a normal purse) bags or smaller are OK. No large bags like backpacks/luggage/duffel bags are allowed. Purses will be inspected on entry by security staff, so please have them out and open. 

Q: Do you have to be 21? What about my tiny baby?

A: Yes, all attendees must be 21 years or older--absolutely no exceptions (even babies, sorry!). Please bring your ID to be checked at the entrance. 

Q: Can I leave and come back?

A: Nope, once you’re in, ya gotta stay in — you cannot leave and come back during a session.

Q: What if I don't drink?

A: There will be plenty of water and soft drinks available for purchase, but there are no separate tickets available for non drinkers -- all entry tickets are the same. 

Q: What about gluten free options?

A: We have a bunch of ciders that are naturally gluten free, plus some of those hip new hard seltzers!

Q: What's the best way to get to the event?

A: Short answer: take Metro or rideshare!  Our venue at the Bullpen is directly across from the Half Street exit of the Navy Yard green line Metro.  There is lots of parking in the area for free, but driving is dumb if you're having lots of beer--please don't drink and drive. 

Q: Can I get a refund?

A: Refunds are available through October 12th, after that, all sales are final! You can transfer your registration to someone else easily using our Eventbrite online ticketing system. 

Q: Can I bring a dog? Cat? Lemming? Mongoose?

A: No, sorry, no furry friends of any sort allowed, except for certified (and marked) service animals. 

Q: I'm still stumped...help!?

A: Email us at havefun@brewfestdc.com and we'll help you out!
