Of course, there will be an enormous variety of German beers on hand, and those will include 
Ayinger, Bitburger, Hacker-Pschorr, König Ludwig, 
Paulaner, Pinkus, Radeberger, Schöfferhofer, Warsteiner, Weihenstephaner,
 
and more.
 
Tickets are available now and begin at $49 for general admission. If you want the full experience, go for the VIP ticket for $69 for 1 PM entrance time and a keepsake mug, or $79 for the VIP Plus ticket (all of the above plus a German beer seminar at noon). There's also a $25 "beer-less" ticket in case you're driving or just not drinking that day, but still want to enjoy this traditional festival. Don’t miss your chance to celebrate Philadelphia’s German beer heritage and try everything this festival has to offer!
