WHY DO SOME BEERS COST MORE THAN OTHERS? Return to top of page
Part of what makes SIB special is the incredible range of beers we offer, both draft and bottle. The number of tickets a beer costs is based on how much the event paid for that particular beer. Some of them are among the most expensive beers in the world. Others are medium priced craft beers from breweries in the area. And then there's everything in between. This system alone makes our event a true rarity and enables the consumer to try $40 per bottle beers for just a couple of bucks.
