The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium


Flying  Saucer’s Spring BeerFeast will feature over 25 breweries and 60 craft  beers, all carefully selected by  Flying Saucer’s resident beer gurus, Keith Schlabs, Sam Wynne and general  manager, Daniel Parks.  In addition,  very rare and limited-release beers will be tapped for fest goers to sample at  staggered times throughout the day via announcements made at the festival and  the Saucer’s Twitter account, @FlyingSaucerLak, the day of the festival. A few  of the exciting beers that will be tapped include: One-year old Saison-Brett  from Boulevard Brewing Co., Lagunitas Brewing Sucks Holiday Ale, Real Ale  Brewing’s Kraken (French Oak Aged Sisyphus), Rahr & Sons Bourbon Barrel Aged  Winter Warmer and Maui Brewing’s Onion Mild.

As a slight  change from the previous year’s festivals, this year’s BeerFeast will be a 21  and up only event and all guests must purchase a ticket to attend the festival.  Also, the Saucer has arranged for  popular  local food trucks such as The Bomb Fried Pies, EasySlider and Nammi to sell  food to festival attendees.

Tickets are $25 if purchased by May 24; then increases  to $30 from May 25 to June 15; and $40 at the door on the day of the event.  Ticket purchase includes a tasting card that  is good for choice of 12 samples of any of the 60 festival beers, as well as a  commemorative Spring BeerFeast tasting glass.   There will also be designated driver tickets available for $15, which  will include admission to the festival and complimentary soft drinks.

In addition  to general admission tickets, this year a very limited number of VIP tickets  will be available for purchase. They are expected to sell out quickly and will  only be available for sale online prior to the festival for $65. In addition to  the tasting card and glass, VIP ticket purchasers will receive early admission  to the festival at 1pm, a special VIP seating area featuring a BeerFeast food  buffet, a 2012 Spring BeerFeast T-shirt and a Brew Caddy lanyard to hold their  taster glass.   Additionally, all VIP  ticket holders will be given the rare brew tapping schedule in advance allowing  them to get in line before the rare brew selection is announced to general  ticket holders.

Additionally  all those that have purchased either general admission or VIP tickets will have  the option of purchasing  additional 12  sample taster cards for just $6, which will be available for sale the day of  the festival only.
