Will there be vegetarian options? Yes. There will be at least two vegetarian burger options among the 12 stations each day. This year we are also encouraging chefs to participate in James Beard Foundation's Blended Burger Project which blends ground meat with chopped mushrooms - creating a healthier and more sustainable burger!
My friend wants to come but not eat - do they need a ticket to get in? No, the Bier Garten is open for regular business. Guests may come to enjoy the Bier Garten as usual.
May I split a ticket with a friend? Yes, you may purchase one ticket and split the three burgers and beers as you wish.
Is there a plan in case of rain? Burgers and Brew is a rain or shine event. We will have at least one large tent covering the service area and Capital Brewery has both outdoor and indoor seating available.
