    Weird. I also got a wed ticket at 1130
  5. Blurg. I overslept. I know it's a stretch but if anyone has an extra ticket, I can offer a place to stay in town when ya come to get em and some beers. Would be the first KBS release I've missed in years.

    I bought a friday ticket (Day #3) the bottom of mine says (KBS #2 - 3/). I assume everything will work out.

    It gets didtributed, you could spend hour/days calling stores and chasing trucks and not drive 400mi or pay $5 for a ticket. Personally, I like the ticket idea better, even though it was a total PITA

    On an unrelated note, I hope they have new KBS glasses this year.

    Hope the rest of you are also falsely bidding it up, for science.

    You hear that asshole? Good luck finding someone who is ACTUALLY bidding for realsies.

    F those guys that are throwing this on eBay. The ticket was for charity. If you're going to go this route, you should donate AT LEAST half of the profit to charity.
  16. Jose2412

    Jose2412 Savant (250) Michigan Feb 25, 2012

    I did find something on eBay's Policy that may make this auction not allowed.

    Tickets to charity events
    The sale of tickets to charity events is allowed on eBay. However, for major charity events where 50% or more of the proceeds will be dedicated to charity, sellers must donate at least 20% of the final sale price of the listing to a charity of their choice through eBay Giving Works. Sellers of tickets for these events need to be registered with eBay Giving Works. 1-day and 3-day listings are not allowed.

    they should have kept the provision about buyer needing to be the ticket holder. it would have prevented eBay and the folks that bought for the whole family.

    Related note - Founders is getting pretty beat up on Facebook. Interesting reading.

    I just checked out their facebook. It's a shame the way people are so upset. Money talks, if you are so upset you didn't get a ticket, don't support Founders any longer if you feel so robbed. If I didn't get a ticket I wouldn't be that upset. It's just beer.

    People talking on facebook about beer are always redic. See also every comment every time FFF releases anything or sells out of ZD. People bitch about anything.

    Well I don't mind BPT getting beat up, the service they provide is obviously sub par. I just hope that other breweries take notice and decide not to use them anymore.

    Jose2412 Savant (250) Michigan Feb 25, 2012

    Also, I'm glad at least 5 out of the 10 mules I got set up with computers got a ticket. I don't know if three cases will be enough, but there is always truck chasing when it gets distro'ed.

    Here's a message from Brown Paper Tickets about their servers this morning. We plan to discuss a future course of action for KBS releases as a team and will post an update, and respond to all of your emails and messages, next week. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
    Brown Paper Tickets
    Yikes! We messed up. Our servers went into maintenance as higher than normal ticket sales spiked on our site this morning. As a result, our support center is also backed up with calls to help customers through the problem. Our dev team is working feverishly to get things up and running. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you and thank you for your patience.

    Could have also been the SD Comic Con ticket demand on BPT that jacked their servers up. Dorks.

    Isn't it nice to see that other BA's here are trying to trade multiple extra tickets 1 hour after they sell out for beer?

    Does this piss anyone else off?

    From BPT Facebook page:
    about an hour ago
    Brown Paper Tickets would like to apologize to Founders Brewing Company, and its customers, for a 25 minute delay in our ability to sell tickets to the event. We experienced a rare set of circumstances this morning that caused the delay, and we are taking protective measures now to ensure that our customers are not inconvenienced in the future. However, we realize that this isolated incident has caused many ticket buyers disappointment and that is not acceptable to Brown Paper Tickets. We are working with Founders Brewing now to try to find a way to make fans of the KBS Imperial Stout release satisfied customers. If you experienced a problem in purchasing your tickets this morning, please call Brown Paper Tickets at our 24/7 customer service hotline at 1-800-838-3006 and we will ask for your contact information and keep you informed on our progress with finding a way to help. Again, our most heartfelt apology for this isolated incident, and as always, we welcome your personal call.

    I don't think they will be able to do too much to rectify the problem. Tickets already sold out and it's not as though they will resell tickets to the event. So...I'm not sure what will happen

    myersk27 Advocate (505) Indiana Oct 21, 2011 Verified

    yeah i don't know either. some guy on FB was suggesting they void all purchases and refund people who got tickets and have a "do-over"......lol

  37. I believe that guy is our favorite (now banned, sadly) beer fan from DeKalb. Such a shame he didn't get any tickets -- though that suggests that, sometimes, the world works the way it's supposed to.

    Same here. Can't imagine it will be a problem. There was a similar quirk with the two FOBAB sessions in Chicago, and things worked out fine there.
