About FredFest

What started as a small surprise 80th birthday party for world-renowned beer writer Fred Eckhardt is coming back around in its ninth year as one of the most anticipated beer events of the year.

Fred EckhardtAttendees will be treated not only to a rare assortment of hand-selected beers, but also light fare cooked in and with beer and of course birthday cake and a round of "Happy Birthday", just for Fred. Cheeses, chocolate, candy and even cereal will be offered in abundance so attendees can experience some of Fred's famed beer-and-food pairings.

Tickets are in advance. Entry into FredFest includes a souvenir glass, free ticket for a raffle of bottled specialty beers and four hours of sampling, sipping and story-telling with Fred. Tickets are limited and they will go fast (they've sold out every year to date), so order yours today before it's too late! Don't have a PayPal account? Follow the link to "Order Tickets" and you can still pay directly with a credit card. Tickets are not mailed out, they will be at the door will-call style. Please bring a copy of your PayPal purchase receipt with you. Make sure if you are purchasing the tickets for a friend that you include their name in the notes section so we can get all ticket holders into the event quickly.

As always, all proceeds from FredFest and any related auctions/raffles will go to a charity of Fred's choice.  The 2014 recipients chosen by Fred are the Guide Dogs for the Blind, International Medical Corps, and the Bob Mc Cracken Scholarship Fund.
