Barrels Bottles &
Brews Fiesta Weekend

Register your brewery or distillery today for the Barrels Bottles & Brews Fiesta weekend.

*Sample design – to be updated.


The Barrels Bottles Brews Event Committee met to discuss the launch of events with the program, and the reincarnation of the Fiesta Weekend.

Below are the details on the event.

  • Friday May 6th 3-pm-9pm
  • Saturday May 7th 12pm – 5p

Visitors will purchase a digital passport through Bandwango for $60 at for their chance to participate. Passports will be valid for both dates and redeemable for a complimentary tasting and Mexican fare at each participating location.

A maximum of 300 passports will be available for purchase. Passports will be valid for both dates of the Fiesta Weekend, and redeemable once (1 time) at each participating location.

Revenue from ticket sales will be split 20% to the Barrels Bottles & Brews program and 80% to participating partners, divided equally between participating partners (approximately $3.50 per person, per partner) to cover food & beverage costs. Each participating partner must provide a complimentary tasting, as well as complimentary fare. We request in advance that you provide which spirit, cocktail or beer you will be sampling and as well what type of Mexican fare you will be providing, so we don’t see a large amount of duplication between participating partners. These details will also be loaded to the passport and hosted at


  • Please confirm your participation in the weekend by Friday March 4th by filling out the form below.
  • Please confirm your details for your offering by Friday April 8th. You can provide these details now, or we will follow up at a later date to get confirmed details from participating partners.

A grassroots marketing kit will be distributed to app participating locations the week of March 14th. We ask that all participating partners have these out for St. Patrick’s Day for advance sales. Kits which will include:

  • Table tents
  • Rack cards
  • Posters

We will formally announce the event on Monday March 21st and provide social media graphics for all partners, in addition to a media campaign (pending pre-sales).

Ole! We look forward to working with you on the first of many events on the Barrels Bottles & Brews Trail.
