Some extra info/details:
  • Nanofest style arrangement with a spot per brewer (instead of Parkville type club level signup, hence the request to be put near the rest of us or just me if no one else signs up haha)
  • They'd like to see 2+ beers per brewer/team
  • Currently unsure of how many tickets you'll be given per signup/brewery

Shift East Fest has finally formally cancelled this year (not surprised, but wanted to relay this information)

Thank you all for your interest in and support of Shift East Brew Fest. As you may have guessed by now, the event will not be able to take place on May 16, 2020 as planned, as a precaution related to the coronavirus. We discussed the possibility of postponing to later in the year, but given all of the other events in summer and fall, and continued uncertainty, we decided it's best to cancel this year's event and begin planning for 2021. We appreciate your willingness to participate in what we hoped to be an amazing event for our community.

If you have already purchased tickets you should have received an email with this information. If you have not seen it, please take a minute to read it as action is required to request a refund.

Even though Shift East won't be held as planned, we can still do some good for our community. We plan to donate all non-refunded ticket sale proceeds and sponsorship funds to Community Services League (CSL) in Blue Springs. CSL is an incredible organization that serves hundreds of families in our city each year by providing basic needs such as food, toiletries, housing, counseling, and employment services.

If you would like to offer your purchase as a contribution to CSL, no action is needed. Your support is incredibly appreciated!

If you would prefer a full refund, please contact Brown Paper Tickets before May 1 by emailing refunds@brownpapertickets.com. Be sure to include your confirmation number.

The Shift East Brew Fest team is committed to hosting a great event and serving our city in Spring 2021. Be on the lookout for a new date. We hope to see you soon! Until then, take care of each other, and check on your neighbor!
