Nortons Brewing Company to host Wichita’s only Beer and Metal Festival

On Friday, Oct. 27, Nortons Brewing Company will transform their space to the scariest, heaviest, most rare beer festival around. It’s time to free up your evening for Norton Brewing Company’s Beer and Metal Fest.

Here are the details for the event:

Doors at Nortons Brewing Company will open at 6 p.m. only to Fest ticket holders. Event attendees will have full access to Nortons until 9 p.m., at which time, the festival opens to the public. It’s the best way to ensure yourself ample time and space to enjoy it without the major crowds.

Upon arrival, ticket holders will be greeted with a custom drinking vessel, which I’m told is a bad ass glass. You’ll also receive a ticket for a full pour of “Dad The Metal Head”.

20 breweries from all over the country will be scattered inside Nortons and on their garden space, pouring rare, one-off beers that you may likely have never had.

Breweries include:
• Our Mutual Friend (CO)
• Surly (MN)
• Alvarium (CT)
• Pilot Project (IL)
• Martin House (TX)
• Stonecloud (OK)
• Natural State (AR)
• Kros Strain (TX)
• Social Project (AR)
• Cosmic Eye (NE)
• 405 Brewing (OK)
• City Barrel (MO)
• Friction (KS)
• Lawrence Brewing (KS)
• Pathlight (KS)
• Hopping Gnome (ICT)
• Lady Bird (Winfield)
• Central Standard (ICT)
• Nortons Brewing (ICT)

On top of the beer, there will be four metal bands ready to provide the soundtrack to the event. Music starts at 6:30 p.m. and will go on until 11 p.m.

Bands include:

• Imajjjin
• Parthian
• Suffocate the Skies
• Narcotic Wasteland (Heavy Metal Legends)

Those who are hungry, can satisfy the grubbing needs as the Norton’s kitchen will be open during the festival.

Mark your calendars, grab your tickets, and prepare yourself for Wichita’s rarest festival: Nortons Beer and Metal Festival!
