    Yeah man, I missed out on tickets too. Didn't realize they'd have a 1000 person limit. VERY disappointed.

    Oh, I would love to have me some tickets to this. Anyone know where to go for the secondary market?

    There is a huge demand, and not a lot of movement of tickets going on from what I understand from my friends in Freddy Beach.

    I was lucky enough to score a ticket from my sister after they sold out.

    This explains why we (Lighthouse) shipped Picaroon's beer.

    I ended up getting tickets at the last minute....they posted to their Facebook Friday evening that some extras would go on sale at the Brewtique Saturday morning. My amazing wife convinced me that we should go, so we were in line for tickets by 7am and successfully got two!

    Great event, was able to try 23 different beers that were new to me. Well behaved crowd, friendly volunteers, I really couldn't ask for a better day. Those double IPAs and Imperial Stouts combined with the hot weather hit me kinda hard towards the end of the afternoon, but felt much better once we napped in our hotel room and had a bit more food.

    Overall, I hope they attempt this again next year as we will be there for sure!

    I considered flying out to pour this year, but couldn't justify it for a first year of a fest. Sounds like next year, I should make it a priority, if only to go drinking with the Picaroon's Crew and taste their delicious Bitter fresh from the tanks.
