Eventbrite - Great Raft Ramble - 2 Yr Anniversary Party

Planning to come? Great! Here's what you need to know. 

Parking – check out this parking map to better understand where you can / cannot park. Nothing ruins a party like being towed.
Parking is available in 3 designated areas: The Great Raft parking lot on Samford (this lot will fill quickly), the new lot at 1258 Dalzell, and the large grass lot underneath I-49 at the intersection of Dalzell and Southern. Dalzell will be blocked between Southern and Samford from 11 am – 11 pm, so please select your route accordingly. There will be marshals there directing traffic and helping you park appropriately. Please don't park at Frees / Samford Properties, park illegally or block any driveways . 
Check In 
Everyone should plan to enter through the main door on the Dalzell side. Please have your receipt or order number handy. There will be 2 lines – one for VIP and one for Gen Admin. You will receive a wrist band (green for gen admin and pink for VIP). This indicates that you have paid and had your ID checked. Do not take it off, give it to a friend or lose it. We cannot replace it. BRING YOUR VALID STATE-ISSUED ID or PASSPORT. If you do not have an ID, we cannot let you in. No exception, no refunds. 
Your wrist band will have 3 tabs on it. Each of those is good for a sample of one of the 20+ beers on tap. If you would like to purchase additional beer, please buy some “beer money” upon check in or at the main bar. 
We will not be selling tokens at the Ramble, however if you have leftover tokens from a previous visit, you may redeem them. Ramble beer money can only be used at the Ramble. 
Beer Stations
Check out this handy beer map to help you find which beer is at which station. You will receive a beer map upon arrival. 
Sample tickets are $2. Pint tickets are $5. You can buy tickets and tokens at the front desk when you have your ID checked, or at the main bar. All stations will take beer money, tokens or cash. The front desk and the main bar will accept all forms of payment, including credit card. (If you have some extra wooden tokens at your house, these will also be accepted at the party.) The tickets are only good for the party. The wooden pint tokens can be redeemed any time. 
 Pint Ticket
 Sample Ticket
If you bought a Commemorative VIP pack, you will collect your t-shirt, poster and glass upon check in. If the ticket you purchased didn’t come with a t-shirt, poster or glass but you want to buy one, you may do at any time while at the brewery, while supplies last. However, due to limited quantities, I would recommend buying upon check in to better ensure availability. 
 Commemorative Shirts are $20
Commemorative Poster (Art by Rob Chandler) - $5
Souvenir glass - $5
DJ Kern Courtney will DJ from 1-5 PM. The Dubonauts play at 6 PM, Hwy Lions at 7 PM, The Wall Chargers at 8 PM and Irene & The Sleepers at 9 PM. 
Food Trucks
Food will be available for purchase from the food trucks that will be parked on Dalzell.  Missing Link, Lucky’s Po’ Boys and BeauxJax will all be on site. 
There will be free water bottles available from various locations throughout the brewery. If  we run out, please feel free to use the water fountains – they pour cold, filtered water. 
Have fun! We look forward to seeing everyone. If you have questions, please send an email to info@greatraftbrewing.com
