Additional Details

Kriekfest is the largest celebration devoted exclusively to barrel-aged cherry beverages. 2019's 4th annual Kriekfest, harvesting the biggest basket of cherry beers––and cider, mead, and sparkling cherry wine––yet, takes place Saturday, June 29 from 11:30am to 7pm at Von Ebert Brewing Glendoveer, located at 14021 NE Glisan St. New to the festival this year is a five-course kriek pairing dinner, which will be held at Von Ebert Glendoveer the evening prior on Friday, June 28. Dinner tickets are extremely limited and cost $125, which includes the meal and beverages, a commemorative stemmed glass, gratuity, and Kriekfest VIP admission the next day. Tickets are available at merctickets.com/go/kriekfest. Advanced general admission costs $30 and includes six drink tickets. Advanced VIP admission is $50 and includes 13 drink tickets and half-hour early admission. GA is $40 and VIP is $60 at the gate. All beverages will be available in four-ounce pours; additional tasting tickets can be purchased onsite for $2 each. Minors and designated drivers receive free admission. Kriek, Flemish for sour cherry, is a four-centuries-old style of spontaneously-fermented, lambic ales aged on cherries (pits and all). This year’s Kriekfest lineup features more than 30 participating providers, including the festival’s largest-ever (and possibly the globe’s largest) collection of world-class examples imported from Belgium, New Zealand, Wisconsin, Michigan, and beyond, including Brasserie Cantillon, Brasserie Fantôme, Brouwerij Drei Fonteinen, Brouwerij Boon, Brouwerij Brasserie De Ranke, and Hanssens Artisanaal. The celebration of cherry-laced libations is family-friendly and features a cherry marketplace and other delicious food.
