Autumn Brew Review Entry & Transportation


Festival Entry & Early Check-In:

There’s a NEW entry and early check-in procedure to get you into the fest faster:

  1. When you near the Grain Belt Brewery Complex, first stop at the parking lot at the north corner of Marshall St. NE and 13th Ave. NE. It will be marked and volunteers will guide you.
  2. At the parking lot, exchange your ticket for a wristband and stamp. We will start wristbanding and stamping as early as 11am.
  3. After you get your wristband and stamp, you can walk toward the entrance.
  4. You can wait by the entrance or leave and come back at 1pm when Autumn Brew Review opens.
  5. You must have a wristband and hand stamp to get into the line outside the event.
