The Ready Set Growl festival features all festival paid ticket holders the best swag: 32 oz custom Growler, unlimited tastes of over 25 breweries and food from great Sonoma County vendors. To be unique we had Heady Topper beer in limited release at the inaugural festival. This #1 rated beer in the U.S.A had never been distributed outside of Vermont! This year we will again plan on bringing an out of state highly rated or rare beer to the festival for a select serving!
