"Get blinded by beer on Saturday and Sunday, March 31-April 1, 2018, as North America’s only monthly metal magazine brings the loudest, heaviest, two-day craft beer festival in the world back to The Fillmore Philadelphia!"
At the Gates
Only the most metal breweries have been selected (see the list below). Not only will their beer be available at the fest, the metalhead brewers that own and work at these breweries will be there to enjoy the music, toast festival-exclusive samples and engage attendees about their exotic brews.
As this is a metal and beer fest, there will be two ticketing options for each day. The “Metal and Beer” ticket gives attendees access to pours from all 20 breweries, as well as admission to that day’s show. The “Just Metal” option—limited to 500 per day—provides access to the show, but not the pours. Customers who purchase “Just Metal” tickets can still buy beers from selected participating breweries on-tap at the venue.
Beware this event is for 21-year-olds and older. Leave babies at home because they won't be allowed in.
BREWERIES:Three Floyds (IN) - TRVE(CO) - Hammerheart (MN) - Burial (NC) - Hoof Hearted (OH)Burnt Hickory (GA) - Weyerbacher (PA) - Yards Brewing (PA) - Stoudts Brewing (PA) - Adroit Theory (VA) - Oliver Brewing (MD) - DC Brau (DC) - Phantom Carriage (CA) - Societe (CA) - Wayfinder (OR) - Jester King (TX) - Broken Goblet (PA) - Brash Brewing (TX) - Strangeways (VA) - Local Option (IL).
How much does it cost?
“Metal & Beer” tickets are $80 for one day and $150 for both.
“Just Metal” tickets are $42 for one day and $82 for both.
If you bought four craft beers at the fest, you would be spending more than $40. The “Metal and Beer Ticket” pays for itself and then some!
Are the breweries in an area separate from the bands?
No, Decibel Metal & Beer Fest is a fully integrated fan experience. You can walk over to the 3 Floyds table, sample a “Blood of the Sunsets” beer, co-brewed by At the Gates, WHILE you watch At the Gates!
Is the event 21+, even if I purchase a “Just Metal” ticket?
Yes, the event is strictly 21+.
