More than 100 regional beers and ciders will pour for the 25th annual Fall Fest this weekend at Schweitzer Mountain Resort.
This year’s event at the Sandpoint-area resort has been extended to four days, from Friday through the Monday holiday. And there’s an expanded layout for the drinks tent (also including wine), food court, soda tent, kids’ activities, arts and crafts vendors and the music stage, with 11 bands performing through the weekend.
Beer tasting packages with souvenir glassware range from $15 for a five-ounce taster and four fills, to $40 for an 18-ounce copper mug and three fills; those can be pre-ordered online (plus fees) through midnight today, and will be sold onsite while supplies last. Extra drink tokens will be available for sale, and you can skip the packages and just buy tokens to get your beers poured in a regular plastic glass.
Beer tent hours are Friday from 4 to 8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Monday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Here’s the posted tap list (subject to change):
