weekend of tartness 2020Take a deep breath and dive into the tropical funky unknown, the Weekend of Tartness is just below the waves, breaching its spritzy effervescence onto shore on December 5th and 6th. The Tartness beers you love, the festival not quite as you know it, as 2020 sees a COVID-Safe celebration with ticketed session times, to keep our Sour-Sailors safe.

Tickets go live [via the Humanitix link above] at 9am on Friday the 20th of November. Ticket price includes your very own WoT 2020 festival glass, and $20 (20 pucks) to spend on beers at the event. Nice! IMPORTANT: Due to limited capacities, we are asking everyone to please respect a limit of one session per person per day at this year’s WoT. Personal info is required to be provided for each ticket holder purchase, and will be checked upon entry to the festival. Please don’t try and work around this, we are very smart.

Put that ticket time in yer diaries, pick a session with your mates, and corral your Shoal to Weekend of Tartness 2020. Each session will feature 9 spesh taps of sour goodness. Expect Wild Ales, Goses, Kettle Sours, Barrel-Aged goodness, and every tart, zesty, tangy drop in between.
