craft brew beer garden

Pay one price to sample craft beers from Mississippi's local brewers.
$15 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. (DON'T BE LATE! TASTING GLASSES SELL OUT FAST)

Here's what you'll get:
  • Entry to the Craft Beer Garden
  • 6.5oz collectable tasting glass
  • Samples of locally brewed craft beers
  • One vote in the People's Choice Award which enters you for a chance to win a $100 Gift Certificate to LD's Beer Run

Jacktoberfest dedicates a portion of the festival site for a local Craft Brew Beer Garden. The general public is invited to purchase a Jacktoberfest souvenir tasting glass and sample local craft beers provided by the 2016 Craft Brew Competition brewers. Each festival attendee who purchases a tasting glass will also be eligible to vote in the Peoples’ Choice Award. The garden will be open to the public and craft brewers between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. (or until the craft beer runs out!)  Make sure you turn in that People's Choice Ballot to make sure you're in the drawing for a $100 Gift Certificate to LD's Beer Run.

Jack encourages craft brewers who enter the competition to bring additional quantities of beer for the public and other competing brewers to sample. We also ask that sample pours be no more than 3-4 ounces to give as many people the opportunity to sample your beer as possible (and the possibility of more peoples’ choice votes!) Sample pouring will take place ONLY between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tables will be made available for brewers to set up, meet and greet others.
If you are a competing brewer and plan to participate in the Craft Brew Beer Garden, please make sure to let us know by filling out the appropriate information on the online entry form. All participating brewers will receive free admission to the Craft Brew Beer Garden, and eligible brewers will also receive a 2016 gift bag.
