    Will there be a promo code for Society members , if so will it be available before the box goes on sale

    There's no promo code for this one due to increased costs and tight margins.

    You didn't miss it, but I just posted it + updated the FAQ.

    We're still waiting on brewers, as some of the beers are being selected or brewed for this box, but I'll be updating this thread as they come in. More to follow...

    Thinking 11:55 PDT tomorrow for the beer list might give me enough time to make a decision... if I don't die from the anticipation first :-)

    I might have a few beers to share by then, but I wouldn't expect more than that given my previous post.

    Nice to see Mortalis involved. They’re local, known more for super-fruited sours, but their BBA stouts are awesome…limited amounts, line-crawl required.

    Does one need to sign up for a Half Time account? I’d like to be ready!

    Doesn't look like you need to, but I'd recommend it for a quicker transaction.

    Why no virtual?

    If it was solely up to me, we'd be doing this as a virtual fest again. But other factors needed to be taken into consideration for the timing on this one. We'll see where things land in 2022.

    That said, there will be online components for those who want to participate (a private forum, Discord hangouts, etc). I'll do my best to make it fun, educational, and engaging. Just no back-to-back live streams this time.

    So how extreme are these beers going to be? Mountain Dew IPA extreme? Or similar to the first cyberfest?

    And if you're wondering what to do with the spillage -- free mliko pour.

    Truly depressing that the beer laws in MN punish ME and deny access to this kick-ass looking great time with BA friends. It's not fair. Not fair at all and makes Minnesota look really really stupid in this theatre. Cheers!

    Yeah, same with SC. I know it is listed on the front page as one of the states this can be shipped to, but pretty sure I've never had success with Half Time (or anyone) and South Carolina.

    Not sure, just entered my zip code ( NY) , it looks like they don’t ship to my area. I thought NY was one of the states since halftime is located in NY. Also I purchased all past virtual festivals with no issue’s…. Is this an error????

    You'll want to reach out to @HalfTime ASAP. See the FAQ in my original post.

    Did you enter it on the top of the beer box page or at the bottom? The top one said it was fine for me but the bottom one said they don't deliver to my zip code. I'm assuming this is just an error

    Use the zip code checker at the top of the page. The other one won't be active until the product is live. And yes, we do ship all throughout NY state.

    I'm not seeing a link where to add anything. The site still looks like it did prior to 3:00.
