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.

Early Risers:

Please begin line in the Beer Garten.  Feel free to make your spot comfortable in line, share homebrews (in the Beer Garten/line areas only) and stories.  The line formation will run throughout the Beer Garten and out past the eastern gate.  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!!!  It is up to your own personal judgment to determine what time you should arrive, but know…people arrive very early!!!


At 6:00 am sharp.  We will be passing out order forms in numerical order (i.e if you are the first person in line…your order form will have a #1 on it, if you are the 66th person in line…your order form will have a #66 on it, etc.).  This will give you time to look over and fill out your order form for beers that you would like to purchase.  We will also be taking care of cover charge at this time…if you are not dressing up as your interpretation of an elf (free) it will be $5.00 and you will get a bracelet for the event.  We will also be selling beer tickets (cash or credit) during this time. 1 ticket for $4.25 = 1 beer or 5 tickets for $21.00 = 5 beers.

At 7:00 am sharp, we will begin processing order forms in numerical order at the garage door in the Beer Garten.  A staff member will be at the order processing table to ensure orders that are processed are in numerical order, so there are no cuts in line.  Once your order is processed, you will have a copy of your order and your order # (please keep that with you at all times and do not lose it)…after that you will have time to do what you please!!!  Both the Taproom and General Store will be open at 7:00 am, so you can check out those places, go and take a nap, explore downtown Marshall, grab a coffee, whatever you would like.  Once you handed in your order, your order will be sent to the cooler to be built!!! You will then pay and pick up your order when your order number is called.

Doors for the actual 4 Elf Party will open at 11:00 am!!!  Make sure you wear your bracelet if you prepaid!!!  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 #!!!! At 11:00 am we will begin pick up.  We will begin this process in order # sequence.  For example from 11:00 am to 11:30 am we will be serving order payments and pick-ups for order #’s 1 – 20.  There will be a sign and announcements throughout the day letting customers know when they are able to pay and pick-up 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.  Please be aware that you do not have to stand in line all day!!!!  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!!!!

Draft Beer:

There will be 3 draft beer stations located in the Production Facility.  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 2 ticket stations (plus presale ticket station in the Beer Garten  in the morning) to purchase draft beer tickets in the facility.  All specialty bottled beers that are for sale will be on draft EXCEPT for Double BBA 6 Pairs of Legs, 51 in total!!!
