    got ours for C . cant beleive there is still this many tickets available. last year if you hesitated you missed out. 2 mins flat and sold out.
     
  9. Tickets seem to be going a little slower than expected. Still 800+ unsold for Saturday afternoon
     
  10. Just got mine for Saturday afternoon. Christmas present for the brother. Can't wait!

    Got Forum tickets to session B! Express entry and straight to Funky Buddha! Can't wait.
     
  12. This year only had 800 next year 2250 per session, 800 left means already sold 1450 tix for Sat alone in 25 min.

    We've beat our expectations by already surpassing EBF 2013 ticket sales AND we've accomplished part of our 2014 goal; not locking people out of getting tickets within 2 mins. Regardless, we anticipate selling all 6,750 tickets.

    last year they sold 850 tix per session times 3 sessions is 2550 in less than 5 minutes. i see your logic though

    What session do you guys recommend? Is there any difference between them other than time and day? Is there any likelihood that breweries won't have substantial supply if you were to go to say: C?

    It's really up to you, but we'll have ample beer at all 3 sessions.

    Session A booked, first BA fest!
     
  25. We have tickets to Session B's forum but haven't been to one before. Should we expect some extra special beers to go with the learning?

    I've got Forum tickets and am also curious how the "beer served in forum" works out.

    It'll be my first as well--got tix to session C...hoping they save the best for last
     
  29. By the way ticket sales went, I'd say that session B is the one to go to.

    Anyone have a clue why Session B sold out almost immediately and the other 2 sessions still have a ton of tickets left? Am I missing out on a big secret about Session B? Got tix to Session A. Real excited!

    The early session on Saturday has always sold out first. There's no real difference between Session B and the others, and there's really not a "ton of tickets left" considering the number of tickets already sold in just over a week.

    Is there a secondary market or somewhere recommended to look for a ticket for a sold out event? I'm looking to acquire 2-4 tickets for the Saturday night session. Thanks in advance.

    Go to Forums, scroll down to Classifieds, and first forum under Classifieds is Beer Tickets. That would be a place to start.
     
  36. Dear 8 pound 6 ounce baby Jesus, please use your baby powers and beat down the Mayan Hero Twin Hunahpu so there will be no duplicate tickets at EBF...

    Duplicate tickets?
     
  38. From CCB's FB page regarding Hunahpu's Day this weekend..

    "So, today did not go as expected. We realize that there were a lot of issues with duplicate tickets, way too long waits in lines, and all of that..."

    That caused a lot of the issues at huna day along with not enough people checking id to expedite the process

    Yeah, read the CCB fiasco and thought of the EBF but i'm not worried, seems like a tight ship.
