Keep in mind that since this is a charity event, all the beer at this festival was donated. Yes, every keg and bottle that gets poured Friday night and Saturday no matter how rare, is generously provided by our craft beer compatriots for the cause. Also adding to the occasion are the artisan food makers who share their craft with all of you, along with the local homebrewers who serve their ice-cold sodas all day long. Lastly, we have to salute all the volunteers who pour beers and work alongside Team Stone. To all of our friends, fans and compatriots: Thank you so much for your generosity. Cheers!

The festival is the largest charity fundraiser we hold, with 100% of the ticket proceeds going to charity. Over the years, this festival has raised a total of over $2 million for charity. For all the charities involved, this event garners the largest single donation each receives year after year. That’s right—they count on your altruistic beer drinking, and every glass you raise this year will help make our community and the world at large a better place.

This year, we're supporting:
