    By the time my webpage reloaded directly at 10:00 Saturday was already sold out. Congrats to the people that got normal server function at 10 AM. I was lucky enough to snag one for Friday after my cart got down underneath the one minute mark. Crazy.

    I'd keep at it. I'd bet a lot of tickets are being released considering no one can checkout.

    Yep, hit check out and connection was reset. Not surprised, the usual outcome with my experiences with BPT.

    Yeah plenty should be recycling now.

    Problem is that the site appears to be almost completely down. Ever since I got to the confirmation page the first time I have been unable to load any bpt page.

    I got tickets but the girlfriend got shut out. We can easily live with 3 4-packs to split, but can she get in to Founders with me on Saturday to enjoy the day at the bar, or do you have to have a ticket just to get in?

    I assume that since my connection has been "rest" that also means my item saved in cart is now gone as well....

    BPT was not all ready for this traffic. At some point, these releases are going to have to go to like a Ticketmaster, who while they suck, can actually hold traffic.

    You can just walk in. I'm actually glad I got Friday tickets now. I have to take a day off work, but I'll spend the night and then just go to the taproom right when it opens. First in for KBS pints.

    This sucks ass but at least I knew in 10 minutes, after my Saturday ticket was purged from my cart, that I'm not getting any bottles instead of waiting in the cold.

    If it is sold out then why are people complaining about the site, im sure you have just as much of a chance to get it if the site was quick. Face it, people have all of their friends hitting the refresh button on the website right now.

    It'd be one thing if you couldn't load the site from the beginning, but to have the tickets in your cart and the site crashes is pretty maddening.

    Obviously it didn't crash for everyone. Face it people from all over are buying tickets expecting people to mule for them and they have prob 2-4 extra people trying for them.
