    Slightly over, but not by much as we want everyone to enjoy the extra elbow room.

    I had ample warning about the early bird tickets.

    I even made it a point to the girlfriend that tickets were going on sale the next day and we should get them.

    Totally planned on going for the second session...

    Then I forgot. I always forget. I've the memory of a goldfish.

    But it's not all a loss! Tickets purchased for Session 3! Looking forward to seeing you knuckleheads there!

    Between this and my tickets for Beer Meets Wood, I'm starting to amass a beer fest ticket hoard.

    Impressive list of breweries but what is there for new blood? Seems like most of done the fest at least once, I'm guessing they get the invite first?

    Bummed some of the standards (Lost Abbey, The Bruery, etc) are doing LA but not Boston. Are there any more breweries being added?

    Early days. We still have at least 20 breweries to add.

    @Todd I wondered if y'all ever had music acts associated with the party or after-events? My band outta Austin is putting together a national tour thru 2018 playing at craft breweries all over the USA focusing on breweries recommended by fans in each town. But it would also be super cool to do some other, bigger events like this one! We have done tons of shows at breweries. Anyway... just thought I'd inquire. SIDE NOTE: I live real close to Bangers here in Austin and am planning to be at the event on Thursday! Super cool spot. . .

    Thanks for the interest, but we don't do music at our fests. It makes it hard for attendees to have conversations with other attendees and brewers.
    Looking forward to Austin this Thursday! See you there!

    For those of you considering going to Session #2 (Sat, Feb 3rd, 12-3:30pm), get your tickets now as there are only 27 left as of this post.

    And Session #2 is sold out. We still have tickets for Session #1 & #3, but those will sellout, too, so don't snooze on them.

    List gets me excited every time I check. Happy to see Aslin, Brew Gentlemen and The Rare Barrel. Have we seen them before at EBF? I don't remember them and didn't see any evidence in my notes.

    Rare Barrel has definitely been there in years past, don't think either Aslin or Brew Gentlemen has been.

    BG was at Micro (as Todd said) and they were a huge hit. They make some crazy stuff (and crazy good) so they'll be a fun fit I'm sure!

    Typically a month before the fest, but sooner if we get them in earlier from brewers.

    Translation: "How long can I snooze on buying tickets?" :thinking_face:

    Answer: This fest always sells out, and we're already at 70% sold. So if you know that you're going, don't wait.
