Burnpile is a celebration of community, of the season, of change and harvest. It is a nod to our brewery’s ethos, the beauty that lies equally in life as well as death and the tools we use to navigate through the effort and ease we encounter.

In our 5th year, we invite a community of brewers, chefs, wine makers, artists, musicians and all of those who celebrate craft to come, embrace the change in the air and experience the last hurrah before we settle in for our winter’s nap.

For the final time ever, our Burnpile will be held at our original taproom downtown, rife with new bars and extended space. This year, we finally get to share the Forestry Camp with a limited number of individuals who join us for our pre-festival tours and tastings.

Burnpile is a token festival. All entrants, regardless of the type of ticket purchased, will receive a unique event glass and tokens for their first two drinks. Additional tokens can be purchased for $3 each. Tokens can be used to purchase drinks or food.
