Event Description:

It's that time of year again... That's right, HESSFEST 7 is almost upon us!

Join us for our 7th Anniversary Celebration and Charity Fundraiser on Saturday, July 29th, 2017. Our friends at San Diego CityBeat are helping organize a rocking party on Grim Ave by our North Park Brewery. We’ll be inviting a bunch of our craft brewer friends to bring some of their favorite brews and join us in celebrating 7 years of Great Beer! There will be live music, souvenir glasses, food vendors, and did we mention unlimited beer samples?!

This year's event will benefit two great charities: Next Step Service Dogs and the YMCA of San Diego County. MHB will be donating net proceeds from the event to these two fantastic organizations. Your ticket purchases help us to write this check!

As usual, we'll have two sessions for the event. The early session is a special VIP event, and the later session is the General Admission Event. VIP Tickets include access to the GA area for the entire event.

Additionally we'll be releasing our brand new HESSFEST 7 Anniverary Stout at the festival. Our brewers are concocting a big 12% stout which we're going to can and make available for pick up. That 4-pack of cans will be $20 to the public after the festival, but we're giving festival goers a chance to pick up as many 4-packs as they want. Unlike the ticket sales for the festival, the proceeds from the can sales are separate from the charity event. MHB is offering a discounted ticket price for pre-release purchases at $16 per 4-pack.

VIP Admission includes:

Exclusive admission to #VIPSOURFEST inside our tasting room. 20+ glorious sour beers, each a unique collaboration with one of our guest breweries. Unlimited, self-serve tasters of our My Other Vice Berliner Weisse with unique flavors and additions provided by our brewery friends in attendance. MOV is a fantastic hot weather beer - clean, crisp, tart and refreshing with a lovely acidic finish.

Early access to the GA outdoor festival at 11am.

Exclusive VIP access to the interior VIP section and event until 2pm.

ALL VIP attendees get their very own special VIP taster cup this year that you may take (empty) into the outdoor festival and use there too after you're done sampling all the VIP brews.
