Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What if I don't ride a bike or don't want to ride a bike?
A: You are welcome to attend just the craft beer expo or just consume BBQ at the trucks at the event. All tickets are sold separately so that you do not have to bike if you do not wish to. Cycling is completely optional and not required. The same goes for the cyclist who doesn't care to partake in the craft brew expo, come for the ride stay for the food and enjoy yourself! Craft brew expo attendees are welcome to show up early and cheer on the riders as they come in from their rides as well!

Q: How many tickets for beer do I get at the expo?
A: We will not be running on a ticket system for drinks. After deliberation and attendance to multiple craft brew experiences we have found that things go better for everyone involved if attendees are allowed to self regulate with oversight from our security staff.
Q: What is a craft brew expo exactly?
A: We get asked this question alot! For those unfamiliar with an expo of this nature it is best described as a tasting. You will be given a tasting cup upon entry and allowed to free roam the brewery tables receiving 2oz pours of any beers you would like to try. You will also be handed a pamphlet to keep track of any notes you may have on a beer as well as explanations of each brew provided. The explanations include ABV (alcohol content), ingredients, style, and pairings. All of this is provided in an open, easy going environment where you have the opportunity to talk with the breweries and other attendees.
Q: Why Bike Brew Q?
A: Neil Frizell can be credited with the name. Neil and Ryan were discussing the idea of creating a cycling event, as well as a craft beer event. Ryan came up with the idea of tying the event to a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation fundraiser and ran with it from there. The event's name has really driven it's construction!

Q: Do you have an event rules and guidelines listed somewhere?
A: Yes we do! It can be located here!
Q: Why are there Ticket Fees?
A: We use a 3rd party service to sell our tickets as this helps us to check in patrons and makes the process much more streamline. We have the fees passed on to the ticket purchaser as a way of being transparent as a charity event. If we were to pay the fees ourselves we would have to raise the price of tickets to cover these fees. We apologize for any confusion that has resulted from this practice.
