Tickets: Tickets go on sale Wednesday, July 3rd at 10:00am sharp. Tickets are $120 (+ applicable tax and service fees) per session, and will be sold exclusively online through our website. 500 tickets per session will be released. Your ticket includes 4 hour unlimited access and pours to 45+ breweries, a custom Witchstock 2019 glass, and Witchstock 2019 sticker. Tickets are non-refundable.
Beer cost: The format of the festival is “all-inclusive”, which means no tokens are required to sample a beer. Please be sure to review our notes on the festival format and drinking responsibly.
The beer line up: A list hasn’t been finalized at this point, but it’s safe to say you can expect to see a solid selection of beers from each brewery, many of which have yet to be poured in Canada, or maybe ever… You can also expect a number of special releases in our on-site retail shop. Any special retail releases will be exclusively available to festival attendees on the day of the festival. Any remaining stock of special retail releases will be released in the days after the festival.
The merch: Limited edition t-shirts and posters will be available for pre-order when purchasing your ticket. A very small number of t-shirts and screen printed posters will be available on site the day of the festival. All posters and t-shirts sold out quickly last year, so to avoid disappointment we would strongly suggest taking advantage of the pre-order opportunity.
The food: Local food vendors will be keeping you fed (please eat!). Vendors will be accepting cash and/or card. There will be not be an ATM on site.
Getting there and back: Please, do not drive! A FREE shuttle bus will be leaving Lawrence West Station for Hafis Rd. starting at 10:00am, and will go continuously until the last person has left the second session at Hafis Rd. The bus will be leaving Lawrence West Station approximately every 20 minutes. Alternatively, the TTC bus leaves Lawrence West Station every 5 mins and drops off at Lawrence & Benton. The brewery is only a 5 min walk from there (10 minutes, if you’re moseying). Volunteers will be at Lawrence West Station to provide you with shuttle and transit information. Parking is extremely limited in the area. Anyone parking in unauthorized parking areas runs the risk of being towed. Please take advantage of the transportation services available to you.
