I’ve been planning on posting a Lushworthy guide to CounterPoint for a few weeks now, but I’ve basically procrastinated my way through those few weeks. Tsk tsk, I know. So, when a friend of a friend on Facebook commented on a post on CounterPoint with the following message: “I hope they have beer!” I knew I had to get my Lushworthy guide up ASAP. The people clearly need this. So, here you have it!
Heineken House!!! – Yes! I was hoping there would be some kind of booze-sponsored lounge at Counterpoint. And here you have it. The Heineken House is described as “a multi-sensory experience, featuring a Live Art Pyramid as the core…the pyramid features 12 massive live art walls to be hand-painted over the three days at Counterpoint this spring.” They’ll be plenty of ice cold brew on deck, but no word yet on if that brew will be complimentary.
Where’s The Booze?! – So, the folks at CounterPoint have created this handy little map to show you where all the stages, eateries, the Heineken House, and of course the bars, are. The places where you can buy drinks are represented by a green mug of beer. There’s a total of five bars in the main festival area. There’s also a bar at the campgrounds area.
BYOB Or Nah? – If you’ll soon have the pleasure of camping out at CounterPoint then yes, you do get to bring your own booze. Restrictions for the campgrounds are as follows:
- You’re allowed to bring your own personal beer, wine and liquor into the campgrounds as long as it’s for personal consumption and within reason.
- One case of beer, a box of wine, or one liter of liquor per person.
- No glass bottles or containers! We’d hate to take your booze from you, but we will.
- You must be 21 years of age or older with valid ID in order to consume alcohol.
Brew 101 – If you need to take a break from A-Trak, Matt & Kim, J. Cole and the dozens of other CounterPoint acts then you can always stop by The Point Draught House to learn a thing or two from their on-site brewery reps. They’ll be smack dab in the middle of the Kingston Downs concert area and will have plenty of brews available.
Free H20 – If you plan on getting your drink on at CounterPoint then please be sure to keep yourself hydrated. Free water will be available throughout the festival site and you can even bring a plastic container or two for water.
Stay Safe – You really don’t want to be the person who can’t recall how epic OutKast’s performance on Sunday was because you were completely wasted. Play it smart, folks. Be safe and enjoy!
