Kick-off American Craft Beer Week by participating in FestivALES on Saturday May 11th! FestivALES is a craft beer tasting tour located at 5 bars in the Warehouse District. Travel at your own pace, because you'll have 6 hours to complete the tour, trying 3 ounce samples of up to 30 beers. For a list of breweries, see below, visit www.bestofneworleans.com/festivales, or pick up a Gambit. Cap off the event with a live performance by Sweet Crude at Barcadia at 7pm. Participating venues also include Manning's, Fulton on Tap, The District & Grand Isle. Please remember to designate a driver, and drink responsibly.

Once you purchase a ticket, make sure you come to Fulton on Tap(608 Fulton St.) between 2 PM and 4 PM on Saturday May 11th to sign your participation waiver & collect your tasting passport.

You cannot participate in FestivALES unless you sign a waiver and pick up a tasting passport!

There is no specific route or schedule for you to follow, and you may go to any participating establishment between 2pm and 8pm to sample beer. When you arrive at a destination, present your tasting passport to the bartender to get stamped, and enjoy your brews.

Included in your $24 ticket are four unique 3-ounce beer tastings at each venue. That's like drinking a whole beer at each stop!

For an additional $1 per 3-ounce sample, each location will have an added two beers for you to try. You can pay the additional $1 directly to the bartenders along the tour. These options will be marked on the tasting passport with '$1' next to the beer name.

Online ticketing will close at midnight, on Friday May 10th. IF THERE ARE TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE, you may walk-up and purchase them for $30.
