FredFest is a celebration of Fred Eckhardt's life and his role in Beer culture as we know it today. Tickets are $85 and include a commemorative glass and an endless beer food buffet. This year we will have more types of Beer from each Brewer, participating Brewers already committed this year include Block 15, Boneyard, Holy Mountain, Rubens Brew and Hair of the Dog.

100% of FredFest ticket sales go to our charities; Hair of the Dog covers all expenses for the event, so we encourage you to pay more than the suggested ticket price.

This year we are splitting our donations between the Obon Society and Guide Dogs for the Blind.

OBON SOCIETY is a non-profit humanitarian effort dedicated to the pursuit of peace. Obon Society staff and members strive to heal the hearts and broken families that were a result of the war fought between America and Japan. Our goal is peace and reconciliation. We receive World War II battlefield souvenirs from American veterans and we return these family heirlooms to their relatives in Japan, this provides opportunities for reconciliation for family through the return of personal items taken during war.

Our house charity, Guide Dogs for the Blind is more than an industry-leading guide dog school; they are a passionate community that serves the visually impaired. With exceptional client services and a robust network of trainers, puppy raisers, donors and volunteers, they prepare highly qualified guide dogs to serve and empower individuals who are blind or have low vision. All of their services are provided free of charge and they receive no government funding.

This year's breweries include, more will be added as we receive commitments from breweries:
