Ticket sales start Monday 12 June from 12 am:


The entrance tickets are for Friday (before 8pm), Saturday (before 4pm) and Sunday. The coin vouchers are sold per set of 5 coins at a price of € 3,00 per piece. An E-ticket guarantees your visit to the festival and it prevents long waiting times, provided you are in for Friday before 20:00 and Saturday before 16:00. After these hours you need to report via the regular cash flow (queue).


  • Print ticket on white paper
  • Keep the ticket carefully
  • Take the ticket to the festival
  • Let this scan through the "Pre-sale" entrance at the scan box
  • After this you will receive the glass, booklet and coins

Please note that the PINT Bokbierfestival tends to be a crowded festival. Especially on Friday evenings and Saturday nights we are often sold out, which may lead to queues when, for security reasons, only after new visitors are allowed in after visitors have left. So our advice is to arrive on time and buy an e-ticket on pre-sale.


A starter package costs € 20.00 per person. This includes a unique festival glass, a festival booklet and 3 coins. More coins à € 3.00 are available at the cash registers in the main hall where you can pay with both cash and debet card.

How does it work?

During the pre-sale or at the entrance you buy the starter package consisting of the festival glass, the festival booklet and the 3 coins. With this glass you go to the tap of the beer you want to taste. After you have paid with a coin, your glass will be filled. Then rinse your glass in one of the sinks and try a next beer. You can buy new at the cash register (pin and cash) in the main hall.

Smoking is not allowed in the Beurs of Berlage. There is an outside smoking area.
