Session 1 runs from 11am to 2pm. Session 2 runs from 3pm to 6pm. Admission to a Session is $10 and includes 5 taster tickets.
    The VIF Session (Very Impressive Firkin) is held from 2pm to 4pm in The Barrel Room adjacent to Buckman Botanical Brewery. VIF will feature Columbia River, Gigantic and Buckman, who are each bringing a firkin that will only be available at VIF. The brewers will be on hand to introduce their firkins and meet attendees. Tickets for this special session are $25 and include admission to Session 2.
