4 Elf Logistics and Details:


Please use parking lots around the Taproom or in the field across the Production Facility off of Pearl Street. Fastenal and Marshall Advisor across South Kalamazoo from the DH compound will be available for parking as well. Staff will be onsite to help direct you for parking.


You will NOT be able to enter the Beer Garten until 11am on Friday, December 9th.

On Friday, December 9th at 6:00pm sharp in the Beer Garten, we will be passing out order forms and matching numbered bracelets in numerical order (i.e if you are the first person…your order form and bracelet will have a #1 on it, if you are the 66th person…your order form and bracelet will have a #66 on it, etc.) and will continue to hand them out as people arrive ALL night long. Once you receive your order form, you can fill it out, hand it in and take bottom receipt with you (please keep that with you at all times and do not lose it).

We are hoping to eliminate lines by handing out order forms as soon as you arrive after 6pm on Friday (we know that most likely won’t be possible, but we are hoping). However, we know that there are many of you whom enjoy hanging out in the Beer Garten and sharing brews together. We will still allow this and keep the Beer Garten open for you all night long. Feel free to find a comfortable spot in the Beer Garten, share homebrews and stories. Please refrain from alcohol consumption in any parking lots. Glass recycling and trash containers will be made available throughout, so please be sure to take care of your trash!!! Staff will be on-hand to answer any questions and provide direction!!!

Doors for the actual 4 Elf Party will open at 11:00 am on Saturday, December 10th at the front entrance of the production facility on South Kalamazoo!!! The cover charge is $5.00 or free to those who come dressed as their interpretation of an elf. Don’t forget to bring your copy of your order form with order # and that you are wearing your matching numeric bracelet!!!! At 11:00 am we will begin order payments and pick up. We will begin this process in order # sequence. For example from 11:00 am to 11:45 am we will be taking payments (cash or credit card) and order pick-ups for order #’s 1 – 50. There will be a sign and announcements throughout the day letting customers know when they are able to pick-up and pay for their order to reduce time waiting in line!!! This will take place outside the production facility (southside) at our cooler garage door. We will also allow you to pull your car around to that area to load your order, if need be. Order numbers ready for pick up will be announced throughout the day!!! So….please enjoy the party!!! The beer you are purchasing has to do with your order number and not you standing in line!!!!

We will still be taking order throughout the day on the 10th at the front entrance to the party, however, we cannot promise that everything you are hoping for will be available.

Draft Beer:

There will be draft beer stations located in the heated tent. Draft beer will need to be purchased through tickets. Each ticket is worth one beer. Buy 1 ticket for $4.25 or 5 tickets for $21.00 (cash or credit card). There will be ticket stations to purchase draft beer tickets. All specialty bottled beers that are for sale will be on draft, plus many others (around 50 in total)!!!

Exotic Food:

Light appetizers will begin around 11:00 am and more food will increasingly come out throughout the day and evening! Please remember there will be a lot of people that would like to try things, so go easy on your plate.
