Rooted In Place follows an all-inclusive model, which means no tokens are required to sample a beer. This is a common approach to festivals we've attended and enjoyed both here in Canada and abroad. It dramatically improves the flow, wait time, and overall enjoyment of the event. Within this format there are no restrictions on the beer you choose to drink, as long as you are drinking responsibly.
Drinking responsibly: Rooted in Place will be staffed with SmartServe certified servers to ensure people are drinking responsibly. While we don’t anticipate we’ll have issues with overconsumption, we must stress that anyone visibly intoxicated cannot legally be served.
Session length: Each session is 4 hours long, which means there is plenty of time to sample beers for as many vendors as you like.
Venue: The festival takes place at our brewery, both inside the taproom and production area, as well as under large, enclosed outdoor heated tents, which means you’re covered snow or shine.
