    I’m going to credit this thread with the newfound knowledge that there’s a direct ferry to the Craneway! The ferry is just a beautiful ride in general, and for those visitors looking for a low-cost bay cruise for sightseeing it’s a great alternative. I think it’s also a better deal than BART, in this instance. Win-win!

    However, as @F4Phantom points out, service ends before the evening sessions do. For those coming from SF, you’ll be able to take it over there at least (and round trip on the afternoon session).

    This gives a little more details on the transit options. I do not believe it is entirely up to date, though. Helicopter, anyone?

    Perhaps it might be helpful to get a sense of who is actually taking public transit (a wise move, given everything) and coordinate from there! I might have missed the note on this so please chime in!

    It will work for the Saturday afternoon session (though a bit late for the early admin.) - first boat from SF leaves at 11:15am and arrives at 11:50; last boat back leaves Richmond at 6:45 and gets back to SF at 7:20. A bit of a wait after the afternoon sessi9on ends before the 5:15 boat. but that gives you time to see the Rosie The Riveter historical park!

    Depending on how you define "overseas", the Kona or Maui Brewing fests might be easier. :grin:

    Todd, this is likely a question for you. Will we get an email confirmation on our ticket purchase once we order? I picked up some tickets yesterday when the purchase window opened. Unfortunately, I had to switch over to a business Zoom meeting as soon as (I think) completed the purchased and did not take a screen capture of the final page. Usually I'm chill about something like this but I thought it best to have some confirmation of my ticket purchase before I get my plane ticket to the West Coast!

    Thanks and I am really looking forward to the Beer Fest to celebrate my retirement this summer!

    Confirmation would come from Ticketsauce, but I do see an order under your email.

    Thanks for the support!

    We've got another 20 or so brewers to confirm, but the brewery lineup is looking awesome so far! Nice blend of previous Extreme Beer Fest brewers, new ones, and regional.

    And two OGs have just joined the fest: Firestone Walker and Sierra Nevada. Both have brought it in the past. Really looking forward to what they bring this time. :beers:

    Yeah, I have the same issue. My CC charge went through and everything, but never received the email confirm / tickets. (I think the tix were on the receipt webpage via pdf, but I just assumed I'd get them in an email too so I closed out the window)

    Movement Brewing Co. out of Rancho Cordova, California will be throwing down with us!

    One of the owners (also a BA) reached out with some thoughts on what they might bring. Perfect fit for the fest!

    I had the same issue. I also selected the option to have the tickets texted to me and did receive that right away.

    Thanks Todd - I reached out to them via the contact URL, and they emailed me my tickets directly as part of the support thread.

    On the other hand.. they said they also re-generated the system email w/tickets and that was never received - just like my initial order - nor did it show up in my spam folder. I think something is wrong on their automated email system. So just mentioning this as I'm not the only person who experienced never receiving an email. I may be the only one who never received it twice though :grin:
