BELOW, YOU WILL FIND COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR EVENT. We will be adding to it regularly!
THE MORE YOU KNOW...
Do you have to be 21 to enter the Festival?
To enter The Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival as a patron, you must be 21 years of age with a valid, state-issued form of identification. This guideline cannot be bent in any way shape or form.
No babies or kids are allowed (even if they are in strollers). These humans all fall under the "Under 21" category.
Repeat- YES. ALL ATTENDEES, EVEN DESIGNATED DRIVERS MUST BE 21 YRS OLD AND OVER TO ENTER.
Is the beer included with my ticket?
Yes! When you purchase a ticket to The Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival, this grants you access to responsibly enjoy our selection of nearly 1,000 beers made by over 120 breweries from across the globe. Enjoy!
What if I am a designated driver?
You're a good friend. No seriously, thank you for doing that. Designated Driver tickets are available for $20 online, or $25 at the door. You're permitted to enjoy the music, the food, the amusements, and the vendors, just not the beer. You'll also get a complimentary high-five from us for being so awesome.
REPEAT: ALL ATTENDEES MUST BE 21YRS OLD AND OVER TO ENTER THE EVENT!
Are VIP Tickets available?
Yes, we do have an AWESOME VIP option (that sells out every year) that is $115 (plus taxes & fees) per ticket and includes the following:
Early entry into your session of A.C. Beer Fest
Access to the world-famous mustache lounge
A fake mustache to wear inside said mustache lounge

Various gifts and goodies from our event partners
A great swag bag to carry all of that stuff in, and to use on your future beer adventures (where permitted)
IS re-entry into the Festival permitted?
That's a negative there, friend. Due to state and local alcohol control board guidelines for the safety and security of our patrons, staff, and bands, once a patron exits the festival floor they will not be granted re-entry to the event. This guideline is adhered to strictly and is not able to be negotiated.
What type of bags can we bring into the festival?
No large back packs are allowed into the festival (i.e. school size back pack) unless they are medically necessary. All other bags are subject to search.
Is the event rain or shine?
Are we allowed to bring water bottles into the festival?
You are allowed to bring one sealed water bottle per person into the festival. No reusable water bottles are permitted inside of the festival. We will not have any water fill stations on site. There will be non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase.
Are animals allowed?
Do I receive entry into the Fest with Hops Trot Registration?
Absolutely, Session 2! That's a big benefit of registering for the 5th annual Hops Trot 5k Run. Early entry into Session 2 of The Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival! Your Hops Trot registration is only good for Session 2. Entry into any other session of The Atlantic City Beer And Music Festival requires a purchased ticket.
