3. How many beers will be available for sampling?

Over 60 breweries will be in attendance, and each one usually has an average of 4-6 beers on tap... so the answer is a lot!

Beer will be served out of one of our three "beer pods" which will each feature 10-15 breweries.

4. Can I buy a ticket at the door?

Yes, cash or card accepted. At the door, the cost is $30 and includes admission and mug. Beer tickets are purchased separately inside the event. Or, buy online for $30 and get 6 drink tickets included (they are 3 for $5). So either way, you're paying the same! If you'd like to pay with card, you can visit the ticket link (worldexpoofbeer.com/p/tickets) on your phone, purchase your tickets if there are some available, then walk up and have it scanned to get in.

5. Will there be food or souvenirs for purchase?

Yes, of course! There will be several food trucks and other food vendors in attendance. Make sure to bring cash just in case as some may not take credit cards for payment.

There will also be awesome souvenirs for sale as well as great gifts for your friends and family! Some popular items that will be sold include the 2022 World Expo of Beer® short and long sleeved t-shirts that have the participating breweries listed on the back and much more! All proceeds are donated to charity!

6. Will there be a shuttle?

Yes, there are free shuttle buses to and from the hotels in Frankenmuth and Birch Run. Shuttle service will run on Friday from 4-11pm and on Saturday from 1-11pm. Visit the Transportation and Hotels page on the festival website for more details.


7. Can I bring my dog or my child?

The only people that can attend are those of legal drinking age, so dogs, cats, kids, and every other creature that isn't a human over the age of 21 cannot enter the event grounds.


We can't wait to welcome you to another year at the World Expo of Beer!
