BrewDog’s Annual General Mayhem (AGM) Festival takes place Saturday, Aug. 24 at the BrewDog DogTap, 96 Gender Rd. in Canal Winchester. Previously, the festival started out as part celebration, part meeting for BrewDog’s equity shareholders. But for the first time in the festival’s four-year history, the US AGM will be open to the general public and all ages.

“This is kind of what we work up to and look forward to every year,” says Cassandra Zahran, social media and marketing manager for BrewDog USA. “It’s just gonna be a day absolutely chockfull of community elements, community activities specific to Canal Winchester into Columbus. And it really just touches on how we can give back to all these people and have our biggest branded event of the year.”

A $30 general admission ticket includes a free pint of beer as soon as guests arrive during regular entry. Featured at the festival will be 10 bands, over 25 craft brewers from across the country and more than 15 food trucks. And as part of the festival’s new family-friendly structure, there will be a bounce house, inflatable soccer games, a chill tent, yard games and more.

Also for the first time, the festival will have two music stages. BrewDog ensured an equal ratio of male and female musicians will perform, as scheduled below.
