“We are excited to bring such a fun and unique experience to Progressive Field, and to partner with the Cleveland Beerfest folks who have been at this since 2013,” said Caitlyn Burkart, director of special events.  “It also gives us another great benefit for our season ticket holders who will have priority access to purchase tickets and receive a discount. We hope to see this become a great annual special event for all to enjoy!”

What is a beerfest?

Attendees get to walk around the ballpark and select drink samples from the tables of local breweries and distilleries. There are three ticket types available, and all receive 25 sampling tickets with each ticket being good for one (1) pour (5 oz. for beer/less for cocktails). There are three ticket levels:

General Admission ($45): Allows admission for a three-hour event (2–5 pm or 8–11 pm).

Early Admission ($70): Guests get in one (1) hour early and will be able to walk down onto the warning track for more beers to try and photo opportunities! 

SuperFan ($95): Will have photo opportunities at home plate!  See website for details.  

“We’re in the process of inviting all of the local and regional breweries and building our sampling list. We are so excited to get back to gathering together in fun environments, and Progressive Field is the perfect backdrop to do that!  We have no doubt that we’ll have another great list of products for people to sample and enjoy, while having a great time in a truly unique atmosphere.  We are also excited to be helping support music education in local schools by The Music Settlement organization,” said Craig Johnson, director of Cleveland Beerfest.
