Beer Dabbler festivals are outdoor and are rain or shine events. However, with severe thunderstorms forecast for the evening of August 28, festival organizers have made the difficult decision to move the event time to 2:00 (1:00 pm for Early Access)–5:30 pm. This decision is meant to keep our guests, vendors, volunteers, and staff safe, and to help ensure that we can hold the event.
