Exclusive craft beer & gourmet food at Byway Brewing

Jeans & Jerseys is a casual, sports-themed event at Byway Brewing that will be riding the horsetails of the Kentucky Derby, which is occurring that same weekend. Your odds of having a great time are a lock.

You'll have the opportunity to hang out in Byway's unique production area/event space and their beautiful outdoor beer garden. There are two different ticket options for you to get in on the action and support your Munster Mustang's education:

  • Super Fan: Includes early access at 6 p.m., guided brewery tour, unique beer samples, 2 pints of the exclusive Mustang Stout with cherry/vanilla, customized tote bag, branded pint glass, unlimited food, and unlimited beer/drinks.
  • Mustang Fan: Includes access at 7 p.m., unlimited food, unlimited beer/drinks, and branded pint glass.

Can't make the event or want to take home some additional Mustang Stouts/Byway Beer? Saddle up your wagon for a carry-out option, including 1 pint of the exclusive Mustang Stout with cherry/vanilla, 3 pints of Byway's other delicious brews, a customized tote bag, and branded pint glass. Pickup is on Thursday, May 5, between 4 and 7 p.m. Or, if you are attending the event on May 6, you can pick it up then.
