    That's pretty awesome. Those were probably my 2 favorite beers at their anniversary party.

    At this point, there is no need to post here. Everyone that wants to know has plenty of ways to find out.

    Potentially. But I don't see the harm, especially for those who spend more time here on BA than other places on the Internet.

    Their own website will have all the details.

    Right. But a large portion of all the information found on this website can be found elsewhere on the web, and people post it anyway. I don't know if I understand why people have an aversion to this info about a beer release/event being posted in an online beer community.

    Are we trying to keep this a secret in case these beers turn into #whalezbro right out of the gate, or what? Did I miss the memo?

    Hopefully they will not do it the same day as Atlanta Cask Ale.

    Bingo. I've never understood the need to rehash every single thing over and over again. Makes no sense to me. I's not just on BA, but every forum known. Why not just find the info, read it, and move on? People are capable of typing stuff into the goggle search bar, trust me. No need to continually put stuff all over the entire internet then keep dredging it back up every five minutes.

    The only thing I'd humbly disagree with in your post is that sentence. And frankly, not that they're incapable so much as unwilling (which is a nice way of saying lazy). Hence the near-weekly birth of strings such as, "I'm going to <fill in a well-known beer town> next week. Good beer there? Plan my trip for me," when those strings already exist ... in multiples. Carry on ...

    Since everyone is capable of using the internet to find information I decided not to mention that Creature Comforts announced the details of the Curious No. 2 and No. 3 release today.

    Was hoping it would be a little more available. Oh well, hope the ones that do go enjoy it.

    From 1:00 to 1:02, it asked for a promo code. I kept trying and at about 1:02:30, it finally let me buy one.

    I'm grateful I got one. Looks like quite a few people got shut out. Wonder what the total count is?

    they forgot to mention there was a promo code. not sure if that was a mistake on their part but it sold out in 3 minutes. lol. well at least I don't have to drive 4 hours to athens now
     
  28. conoraugustine

    conoraugustine Initiate (0) Feb 17, 2015 North Carolina

    if the window that allowed buying a ticket was like 30 seconds then I guess the count was extremely low

    Creature Comforts just has to get production up to meet demand. They'll get there. Sucks that so many people got shut out, though.

    Yeah cuz there were no issues with the mobile site not working for the Golden Angel release. Or in 2014 for the Dark Arts release, when the site didn't work until 15 minutes after they were supposed to go on sale.

    Pretty much all online tickets have their issues and the in demand ones are a true crapshoot. I still prefer that to waiting in line overnight/several hours.

    I was lucky enough to get a ticket also. I'll see you there!

    Really hard to blame breweries for something wrong with the ticketing vendor. The STS and Brettomatic releases went on just fine as far as I recall.

    In any event, looking forward to this. See folks there.

    About 30 minutes before the ticket release, I tweeted Creature Comforts about the Promo Code requirement and they said that it would be removed at 1pm. Unfortunately for some people, the Xorbia rep didn't remove it until 1:02-1:03. I just kept refreshing the page until it was removed.

    Browser caching is a hell of a thing. Plenty of people were going to get shut out regardless. They are very limited beers.

    But even if it had gotten removed at 1 that didn't mean anyone online at 1 would have had a better chance. It was all a crapshoot.

    The real problem is with people who had stuff in their cart and went to check out and got an error message saying their time had run out.

    Having the event page be up beforehand, with a promo code option that was to be removed makes no sense. Why have any stipulation for a promo code prior to 1 PM unless they gave said code to select people to secure tickets? I love Creature Comforts, and will be back despite getting shut out, but it definitely opens them up to the possibly that something shady was going on.

    Talking with some CC peeps, there are less than a couple hundred of each of these bottles. Instawhale?

    NorthCoastPranqster Aspirant (285) Aug 14, 2013 Georgia

    I don't think anything shady was going on. Maybe they gave the promo code to a select few friends/reps/other brewers, to make sure they got a ticket. If that was the reason for the promo code, I'm OK with it.

    I'm not saying that anything shady did go on; but it definitely makes you wonder question why it was required prior to onsale.. If nothing else because I'm a fan of CC, it sucks they went this route because it opens the door for people to think something was up.
