Translation: The 'FreshTix' server in some guy's basement in Mississippi blew the circuit breaker.
Don't worry about that slacker.
It will be interesting to see how they handle all the people with duplicate entries. For instance I got two confirmation numbers and two emails with tickets for the 3 pm session. I assume this happened to several people.
Lawson's Finest@LawsonsFinest 5 minutes ago
We are deleting duplicate ticket orders for LFL beer lovers mkt. Will keep one per person/per name and resend good ticket by email.
I don't think it was bots...I think it was a crappy server combined with people reclicking over and over making duplicate entries
Sent you a Private Message.
I'll take this new system any day over waking up at 4am to stand in a line for 3 or 4 hours. They just need a better server or provider.
To blame Lawson's Finest, Sean himself, or @youbrewidrink is asinine.
Anyone been able to get one of the tickets that have been released since they went and began eliminating duplicate purchases? Or should I just stop trying?
I was able to score one about 15 minutes ago. They have changed the Freshtix website from "sold out" to "no longer available" FWIW
My buddy scored about 15 minutes ago too. 3-4 session.
Just scored about 5 minutes ago with a Group 1 session. What an absolute fiasco this morning. I feel bad for Lawsons with how many disgruntled emails I'm sure they received.
I'm considering holding off on releases like this that are outside of New York from now on...You locals in Vermont must hate the fact that you can't get beer from your own backyard...I'd be LIVID
For those who went last year - are the draft pours that you can get at the market during your session full pints or tasters? The info on the web site isn't clear on this. Thanks.
They have been full pours in the past (plastic cups, not sure how many ounces), I am guessing it will be the same this year.
Thanks. Given that we can only be there for the hour that is our session and part of that will be lining up and purchasing beer, probably isn't much time to try more than one, maybe 2 different beers.
In the past how much have the drafts cost? I went two years ago but I don't remember what they were charging.
More and more people are starting to see this...
We see alot of great local stuff on draft and have the same opportunity to purchase bottles as everyone else.
I am not of the entitled mentallity, of course I would love easier access, but that just not the fair way to do things.
Any word on Fayston bottle counts? Trying to gauge whether or not the other beers will sell out before they get through the first session...
Lawsons posted on the site that they have enough Triple and SOS for everyone in attendance to get full allotments. They have enough allotments of the variants for everyone in the first 2 sessions to get full allotments and that they expect them to all sell out somewhere in the 3rd session.
"We have enough beer so that ALL additional bottle varities on our list will be available for purchase for all of Group 1 and Group 2 and most of Group 3, even if everyone buys the maximum limit. Everyone who registers and receives a ticket (Group 1-Group 4) will have the opportunity to purchase up to 2 bottles of Triple Sunshine IPA and up to a full case of Sip of Sunshine IPA, as well as any of the draft beers!"
Ah! I didn't read carefully enough but I see it now... thanks for the info!
They should've had equal allotments for all 4 sessions.
From what I've gathered, Mad Taco (about 1/2 mile down the road) will have a few Lawson's lines on and a special cask (according to the announcement)
If that's the case, then I'm probably just going to have a Triple Sun and a Rum aged Fayston at the market.
That is a great plan.
Has anyone that had duplicate tickets get their new ticket yet?
Just scored a ticket to the 7 PM Ball: big thanks to normanburner!
I'm still looking for a place to stay that's either on the shuttle line or within stumbling distance of the Valley Players Theater. If anyone wants to meet up beforehand and crack open a few bottles, lemme know. I'll bring some stuff from the midwest.
I sent an email to them with both confirmation numbers and they just told me which to keep!
JMonah: where did they post that info? Haven't seen that on the site/FB/Twitter. Thanks!
Several local restaurants will be joining us in the celebration, each serving multiple Lawson’s Finest drafts and a special offering! At the Mad Taco in Waitsfield, we are tapping a cask of the Permagrin Rye Pale Ale; at the Prohibition Pig in Waterbury we are featuring our collaboration brew Reverse Whirlpool IPA, and at the Worthy Burger in South Royalton we are featuring a special Lawson’s Burger.
I might be down for that. Shoot me a PM.
About the varitants for the sessions? It's on the freshtix site when clicking the link from lawsons about where to get tickets.
Will the other vendors at the market be available to people that don't have a ticket? I am sure they would like the business
any guesses on the amount of tix for each session... I would guess nothing to crazy since they have to fill everyone's order in a hour.
The ones that are outside will be!
Not sure, but it's limited by building ocupancy and the space taken up by vendors.
For those in Vermont that are unable to make the event, there is a Plan B:
I've heard 8 draft lines at Taco, and the one-off cask. Should be awesome!
leaving work in a couple hours to start the trip up .. can't wait!!
