    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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...

    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..."

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