Is the event cash only?Cash is encouraged, but we will have a station to allow customers to use credit/debit cards in the tent to purchase “Bloktoberfest cash”. All Bloktoberfest cash must be redeemed in the tent, or in the restaurant by October 27th. Change will be given at the beer & food station.
Is there a short line for a pint of beer or to refill my mug?Yes, look for the beer only line to grab just a pint, or get a refill.
Can I refill my 1-liter mug?We only allow a 1 liter mug to be filled the first time it has beer in it. After that we will only fill it to the half-way mark.
Can I bring in outside food?We are not allowing any outside food into the tent this year, including food from the restaurant so that our Block 15 kitchen does not get overwhelmed.
