Brewtal Beer Fest | Metal & Beer Event | Est. 2016


Brewtal Beer Fest 3
October 20th, 2018

Brewtal Beer Fest is ready to annihilate year THREE and we want YOU to be there. We are bringing BBF back to Mr. Smalls with the main stage and fun house stage melting faces as guests sample YOUR beer!

Are you new to Brewtal Beer Fest? 
This isn't your typical beer festival! Brewtal Beer Festival is a part metal concert and part beer festival. James and Meg Evans established this festival in November of 2016 and just wrapped up year two in September tripling our guest count. Our current team is comprised of brewers and musicians putting passion to work. Through our vision and no BS work ethic, we have designed an event that brings communities together to create, network, and grow our respective industries. We believe that BBF is more than an annual event. It is a culture. We live and breath our work which ensures the utmost focus on detail and quality. We pride ourselves on designing a festival that is just as fun for those involved as it is for our guests.

BBF is held at Mr. Smalls Theatre, one of the largest music venue's in Pittsburgh, PA. BBF utilized the entire venue for the festival. This offered the guests a total experience package. Breweries, bands, and vendors are spread throughout allowing guests to always find something to do while going between stages. 

We have two ticket types, Band & Beer Ticket and Band Only Ticket. The guests who opt to have a Band AND Beer ticket will be able to sample from 3PM-8:30PM. We ask that you are ready to setup by 1PM as the VIP guests will enter at 2PM. We will be setting up by 9AM, so you are free to come as early as you'd like. We have volunteers to help direct you and load you in. 

BBF stands apart from your typical beer festival or concert because we work to bring our guests the most exclusive products that we can. How do we do this?! We connect breweries and bands to create one off beers for this event. This is HUGE for not only the guests, but also the brewers and bands have a blast. Breweries are NOT obligated to collaborate, but it is an option. We've also paired headlining bands with breweries, so that's totally a potential if you're interested! We will offer a stipend of $100/Half BBL & $40/Sixth BBL or the equivalent.  

We can't forget about our bands! We work with TEN bands ranging from national acts to our favorite locals. Check out who we currently have in store:

1.) Dying Fetus
2.) Incantation
3.) Through The Eyes of The Dead
4.) Black Tusk
5.) Gatecreeper
6.) Genocide Pact
7.) Greywalker
8.) Riparian
9.) Plasmid
10.) No Reason To Live
