Is the Beer Dabbler planning on hosting festivals in 2021?
Short answer: Yes! Long answer: We will only be able host our sampling festivals when can guarantee that it is safe to do, which means that we’re formulating plans and developing safety procedures while carefully monitoring information about the progression of COVID-19. If you chose to purchase a pre-sale ticket or season pass, your ticket will be honored at the next iteration of that festival, even if that festival occurs after 2021.
**UPDATE: WINTER BEER DABBLER POSTPONED**
With a heavy heart, we must announce that we’ll be postponing our next Winter Beer Dabbler event until 2022.
While we had always hoped to bring our signature winter beer festival back this year, the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have made it impossible to host a large-scale tasting event safely at this time.
We’re hopeful that we will still be able to host our Beer Dabbler at Twin Cities Pride and Summer Beer Dabbler events later this year, and we will be carefully monitoring relevant data and developing safety plans to try to ensure that those events happen in 2021.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR FESTIVAL SEASON PASS AND PRE-SALE TICKET BUYERS:
If you supported us by purchasing a Festival Season Pass or a GA pre-sale ticket for the Winter Beer Dabbler, your ticket purchase will be honored at the next iteration of our festival (Target: Feb. 2022).
If you have any additional questions about how we will honor your Winter Beer Dabbler ticket purchases, email email@example.com, and we’ll do our best to answer them right away.

What if I just want to buy a general admission ticket for a single festival?
Good news, we’re now offering general admission tickets to our individual festivals as perks on our Indiegogo page at a special pre-sale price! These tickets cost just $45 each during our crowdfunding campaign, which is $12 less than they would normally cost when you including handling fees.
How do these Season Pass and GA Pre-Sale tickets work?
Your Festival Season Pass will include three digital tickets that will be valid for the next iteration of each of our festivals, which will be held when the Beer Dabbler as well as the state and federal governments deem it to be safe to hold beer sampling events again. If you purchase an individual general admission pre-sale ticket, the same rules apply.
We are currently monitoring the ongoing impact of COVID-19 and developing safety procedures in the hopes of hosting all of our events in 2021. However, due to the rapidly changing nature of the pandemic, we cannot guarantee any 2021 festival dates at this time. In the event that any of our three festivals is not able to be held in 2021, your digital ticket voucher for that event will be honored during the next possible iteration of that festival in 2022.
In the event that pandemic conditions require us to change the standard format or price of our respective festivals, “Early Access” or “Fast Lane Entry” are defined by the Beer Dabbler as a $75 ticket value equivalent. “General Admission” is defined as a $50 ticket equivalent.
Your digital ticket vouchers will be transferable between persons and may be purchased as gifts, however, these vouchers will not be transferable between festivals. Each voucher will only be honored for the next iteration of its corresponding festival.
If you are unable to or choose not to attend the next iteration of a festival that you hold a voucher for, you may transfer your ticket to another person, however, your ticket will not be refundable.
What is DabblerTV?
DabblerTV is our new subscription-based web video channel that will be available via our newly revamped website! Our goal is to bring you sippable, high-quality videos that reflect all of the fun and excitement of Minnesota’s craft beer scene, and beyond.
What about those discounts and exclusive events?
