The Brewfest will continue through the game but once a keg is kicked it will not be replaced.

And for the ballgame between the Pickles and the Heat the first 800 fans will receive our Mystery Bobblehead presented by Northside Ford. Gates open at 6:05 pm for fans with game tickets and the first pitch is at 7:05 pm. When we inquired about how the Brewfest attendees will be able to receive a bobblehead the Pickles organization responded that they are “working on a solution for the bobblehead distribution to those already attending the Brewfest.”
