Has it really been 4 years already? That’s right, we're celebrating our 4 year anniversary on Saturday, April 27. In the last 4 years, a lot has happened since then like increasing the size of our brewing facility (a few times), creating and releasing incredible beers, and expanding our distribution.
The most important part in all of this is YOU; our fans, friends, and family. We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate all the good beers and good times than to throw a big party! So, we sure everyone makes it out to celebrate with us in true TUPPS fashion. We’ll be tapping rare beers, roasting hogs, rocking out to all your favorite local bands, and enjoying a craft beer extravaganza! Oh! and cake. There will be cake.

Wait, what? “Hop Oil Line”? Tell me more…
==> We are launching a line of IPAs that will have pure essential oils made from fresh hops, steam-distilled right out of the field at harvest season. This captures the intense, aromatic essential oils found in only fresh hops.
So how exactly does the process work?
==> It starts with fresh hops during harvest season. Then, they steam-distill the whole hops with pure steam. Instead of removing the leaves and steams (which removes so much flavor), they keep the whole hop intact through the steaming process. After steaming the whole hops, they collect the vapor, cool it, distill it, then separate the pure hop oil from the water. The hop oil is purified for use, then we go in and add the hop oils after fermentation. The taste is truly as fresh as you can get! It’s a new process we are really excited about and want you to come out, try our new line and tell us what you think!
When should I get there?
Depends on the ticket you have.
VIP tickets can access at 11 AM.
General Admission is at 12:30 PM.
Have your ID and ticket (paper print out or on your phone) ready. There will be plenty of beer to go around, regardless of ticket type. Good times all day!
Will you be selling tickets at the door like last year?
Yes, we are offering tickets at the door.
You must be at least 21 years to drink, and show a valid ID. You will be wrist-banded and must show this wristband while at the event. However, children accompanied by a parent can enter.
Do non-drinkers and children have to have a ticket?
No, non-drinkers and children do not have to pay to enter.
What are my transport/parking options?
We have free parking around the large field across the street. However, if you'd like to take public transportation, you have some great options. And, we're big supporters of UBER & LYFT. Please do not drink and drive.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
All the obvious stuff. Just don't be stupid, please. Definitely no weapons, drugs or other alcohol products. Nothing that ruins other people's good times. We don't want the negative vibe of having to have a cop throw you out. Nobody wants to be that guy.
You can also bring folding chairs to ensure you have a seat!
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Having your ticket pulled up on your phone is the easiest and greenest option. Tickets are great, especially for back-up purposes. We also have an order list at the desk. Either way, having your ticket on your phone will ensure everyone gets in as quickly as humanly possible!
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
Depends. We've seen all the tricks. But seriously, that's cool as long as the purchaser name lines up on our records. Having your ticket or confirmation on your phone is highly recommended.
Unfortunately, the City of McKinney does not allowed us to have dogs on premise at this time. We wish!
How do the beer samples work?
VIP and General Admission ticket fees gets you a sample card for 12 samples. Each sample is roughly 4 ounces. If you are drinking responsibly, extra sample cards can be purchased.
What about food?
Highly recommended! Definitely eat while you are here sampling beer. We will have food catered by Rye, a local Mckinney restaurant, who will be roasting 2 whole hogs for us as well as providing all of the sides you could ever want. Save your appetite for these guys and some cake!
