#2. We’ll have even more local breweries.

We’re on schedule to have over 20 Nebraska breweries pouring the best of their brews at this year’s event. That’s the most we’ve ever had! It’s also one of your best chances to taste this many Nebraska beers in one location.


#3. If the weather cooperates, we’ll be back outside.

We held DTB outside for the first time three years ago. It was a huge success. Tons of room, sunshine, and that sweet Nebraska air. Since then, we’ve decided to host the event outside every year! Now, mother nature doesn’t always cooperate, so our backup location is the Hastings Auditorium.

#4. Proceeds go to a good cause.

What makes an evening of beer tasting even better? Knowing the proceeds of your ticket are going to a good cause. That’s right, your indulgence of craft beer will go to help out several non-profit organizations. This year’s proceeds will go to the Hastings Community Arts Council, Hastings Young Professionals, and the Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild.

#5. There are multiple food options.

Any good beer festival has good food. We’ll have several vendors on-site providing tasty options to subdue your appetite. But if you are looking for something a little more substantial, we recommend grabbing dinner at one of our amazing downtown restaurants. Be sure to call and place a reservation or head to the restaurant a little early. There will be several hundred other hungry attendees with the same great idea after the event ends.
