The best brewers in the region convene under the Bighorns for the annual Suds n’ Spurs Brew Fest, a festival of fun, entertainment, beer sampling and food!
The Suds n’ Spurs Brew Fest is a major fundraiser for the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce. Funds raised will go toward furthering the missions of our committees and to programs and training opportunities for our business community.
On August 25th from 2:00pm -7:00pm, trade in your ticket for a wristband, your official Brewfest sampling glass, and your voting token. Then you’re on your way to UNLIMITED sampling. Make sure to participate in the 2018 People’s Choice Award, by dropping your token at your favorite brewer’s table.
You’ll have unlimited tasting from craft brewers from six different states in the region!

All ticket holders will be asked to vote for THEIR FAVORITE BREWERY, as the People’s Choice Award of the event! Then stay ’til the end to see who takes home the coveted Tom Balding Spur Award. (There’s also a professionally judged competition in the Lager category, with the winner also receiving a Tom Balding Spur.)
Headlining this year is Brand 307! Grounded firmly in country music, Brand 307 has found their voice in the wide spectrum that makes up the genre. The boys of Brand 307 are rooted in the rebel tradition of Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, of going against the grain and believing in their own brand of music. Rough, gritty, and genuine are words that have been used to describe the songs that Brand 307 brings to both their original material, as well as the selections from popular artists in their live show.
Opening the brewfest this year is local band, the InstaGators. A slice of southern fried goodness smothered in a heaping scoop of swampy soul. The InstaGators will do the body good with their incidental set list, three-part harmonies, gnarly sax and pounding percussion.

THE SMOKING AREAS
Please smoke only in the designated areas.
THE TROLLEY SHUTTLE
The Sheridan Trolley will be providing complimentary shuttle service between the Holiday Inn and Whitney Commons Park, during the hours of the event. Additional public parking for the event is available in the north parking lot at the Holiday Inn. [shuttle schedule]
AND WHEN YOU LEAVE
We want everyone to get home safely. If you’re feeling tipsy when you’re ready to leave, event organizers will provide options for safe rides home. Come to the Brewfest main event tent.
