We won't let a little rain keep us from having a good time. Screw City Beer Festival will take place rain or shine. Dress accordingly!

HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST, HOW DO I GET TICKETS AND WHAT DO I GET WITH ADMISSION?

All information can be found on Tickets page.

 

WHAT’S WITH THE NAME?

Once the "Screw Capital" of the country, Screw City Beer Festival pays tribute to Rockford's storied industrial manufacturing history.

 

I DO noT INTEND TO DRINK OR AM A DESIGNATED DRIVER FOR MY FRIENDS.

We highly support and encourage designated drivers. All designated drivers who wish to attend SCBF must purchase a $10 Designated Driver ticket during public ticket sales. DD ticket sales close once the festival is sold out.

DDs must be 21+ and must present a valid ID and ticket to enter. All DDs must wear a red SCBF wristband and will not receive drink tickets or a tasting cup. Any persons witnessed to be in violation while wearing this wristband will be escorted off the event premise immediately.

 

WHAT'S THIS BUSINESS ABOUT DRINK CARDS? WHY?

For each 2 oz sample poured, a box on your drink card must be checked off. This is a regulatory measure to keep in compliance with current Illinois liquor laws for this type of event. We all know it's not ideal, but griping about it to us won't change our structure. Just use your drink card and have fun. Additional drink cards are available for purchase.
