    No, everyone knows that Sour Fest tickets don't rain down. This thread is bush league. Also, you have the wrong Black Damnation as your avatar. It's Black Mes, get it right.

    15 seconds too late and all tickets are already pending.

    I got mine. My gf was also trying to get them just in case, we released on her end. So at least one more free.

    I refreshed right at 9 and got the menu to choose a number of tix, but by the time I ordered they were pending. Have fun you lucky few.

    I think I'm going to find a new hobby. I'm tired of driving all around town for one bottle of a special release, waiting in line over an hour for one bottle of a special release, not getting tickets to festivals b/c they sell out in less then a minute. This industry is really starting to wear on me.

    must've just beat me to those, clicked on order and got a message that they weren't available, right at 9:15

    They are still not sold out, wondering how/why it took someone 26 minutes to type in their email and CC info for this.... no reason to sit on tickets in your cart... but it still says pending.

    Does anyone know roughly how many were available?

    I think it was 500 last year, not sure about this year.

    It's probably about the same. They haven't grown because they can't get enough beer for a bigger fest.

    You are doing it wrong. Don't lose sight of why you started drinking beer in the first place, to get drunk. So you missed out on a festival, go spend the $55 at a bar or bottle shop and get hammered. $55 at Crooked Stave, Great Divide, or Rackhouse will get you where you need to be.

    Sounds like tix weren't as crazy as last year? Disappointed ill miss this, but headed to Winter Park that weekend for my 30th. We'll be doing a little sourfest of our own up there. Hopefully I'll run into a few of you the weekend before at Crooked Stave.

    How so? It basically instantly sold out. People were refreshing their browsers at 9 am and it went from not on sale yet to pending. If you weren't one of the lucky ones that got in, it was the same as last year.

    People here kind of expected it, the real butt hurt is on Avery's facebook page.

    You know what's funny is people don't get worked up about it when they get shut out to concerts or sporting events...

    Yeah, can't believe what some of those people are posting. "Why didn't you save me a ticket? I DESERVE to go to SourFest because I've been wanting to go really bad for, like, ever. Your brewery SUCKS".

    Shaking my head...

    Ya I am one of the unlucky ones that didn't get tickets this year! Oh well at least I got the memories of last year, and hopefully next year. I think it sold out in less than 30 seconds this year
