11th Annual Maui Brewer’s Festival, May 18
The 2019 Maui Brewers Festival returns on Saturday, May 18 as a fundraiser for the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. VIP and General Admission tickets go on sale Friday, March 15 at 10 a.m.
The popular ‘Brews & Food’ event, taking place in the MACC’s A&B Amphitheater and Yokouchi Pavilion, will showcase more than 90 craft brews from breweries in Hawai‘i and on the mainland. The selection includes many rare beers, as well as a wide range of delicious food from many of Maui’s finest chefs, caterers and food purveyors.
This year’s music lineup includes Riddum Station, Flat Jackson and more.
For this year’s event, there will be more than 40 breweries participating in the festival, including 14 from Hawai‘i—all carefully selected because of their commitment to making craft beer with an emphasis on quality, flavor and locally sourced ingredients.
As in the past, all food is included in the ticket price. Attendees will enjoy food from many local restaurants and caterers, featuring both savory and sweet temptations. The event will also feature Vitali-Tea Kombucha, cold brew coffee, root beer and other beverages.
VIP tickets include early entry at 2 p.m. for the VIP Tastings period until 3:30 p.m., with exclusive access to rare beer tastings offered in different locations spread throughout the entire venue along with a handy beer caddy lanyard, and the opportunity to purchase a Crazy Shirts 2019 event t-shirt at a discounted price.
This year’s event tickets are $120 for VIP tickets and include ten 4-oz. pours including the rare beer tastings. General Admission tickets are $65 in advance and include eight 4-oz. pours. Designated driver tickets are available for $55.
All tickets are subject to applicable facility fees. Prices increase on the day of the event. Scrip for additional pours will also be available for purchase on site.
