Help us be Waste Free

Our Waste Free Event follows sustainable practices to send the least possible amount of waste to the landfill.



WasteFreeThere’s no plastic in our beer garden! All craft brews will be served in a stainless steel cup that is durable, versatile, reusable and dishwasher-safe.

  • Initial beer pricing will be $11 and includes a Wagner Subaru Outdoor Experience branded reusable 16-ounce stainless steel pint cup. Use this reusable cup, and refills will cost only $5!
  • Did you buy a reusable pint from the Great Lakes Brewing Company Beer Garden last year or do you already own a steel pint? Bring it to the event, and get all beers for the $5 refill price.

Cheers to a Waste Free Event!


Other Beverages

The city of Dayton water department will have a two water stations at the event. Please bring a reusable water bottle to enjoy some free tasty Dayton tap water! Single use water bottle sales are prohibited at the event so please bring a bottle.  Reusable bottles will also be for sale at the merchandise tent near the gateway entrance.

Non-alcoholic beverages and coffee will also be available at the event. Please recycle or compost beverage containers accordingly in our refuse stations throughout the event.


To support our Waste Free initiatives, Styrofoam serving items are prohibited at our event, and all serving ware is compostable.

How can you help?
