    Got Friday in the cart and didn't see a live page again after that. Sad day, but at least I didn't stand in line for hours on end just to get shut out.

    Selling tix online to avoid the onsite clusterf*cks is the right idea, but apparently there is not a ticket site yet found that can handle the sheer volume of beer geek mania. Such is craft beer in 2013.

    i'd rather be in line getting shut out, drinking with you fools. Instead im just hopelessly reloading a page 30 minutes after it sold out, in my PJs. The latter being much more depressing

    Page loaded for me. Showed availability and proceeded to crash when I hit add to cart. This is admittedly funny to me.

    So lemme get this straight...I've spent the last half hour trying to get onto a website to pay five dollars for a ticket that will give me the privilege of driving 400 miles round trip to spend 57 bucks to buy 12 bottles of beer? :eek:

    Looks like they're all sold out again... or at least all stuck in carts that can't be checked out.

    My connection was reset after putting my CC info in for Thursday. Fuck BPT. I'd rather wait in line.

    All sold out again.

    Just spoke with BPT customer support. He was really cool and basically said they weren't prepared for this many people to try to buy this many tickets at once. Totally crashed their servers and they're working on seeing what happened. Too late now, my cart timed out. Totally blows.
