    Just got the details of tickets for Shelton's Festival in email. Cutting it a bit fine as tickets go on sale on Friday, but at least the details are out there. Based on past experience, VIP might be worth it, almost certainly what I'll be picking up.

    Did VIP for Friday last year. My wife enjoyed it which makes this an easy sell for a little weekend getaway. Hoping to snag Friday VIP again this year.

    Was VIP last year similar to this year where there's a 2 hour VIP session and then a 3 or 4 hour GA session? When I went in Atlanta VIP was 1 hour before the GA. 2 extra hours feels long but maybe it'll be more relaxed.

    Last year was similar to this year. When we got in, we realized that my wife left her phone in the Uber and we spent about 25 minutes trying to track it down and set up a drop off. After that we still managed to get pretty much everything we wanted with a few exceptions (BA Abraxas kicked really quick). Once GA got in it got pretty crazy so we stayed an hour into GA.

    Perennial did not bring the proper amount of beer for a festival that size.

    Considering how long the lines were for Cantillon and 3F and they didn't run out while I was there, I completely agree.

    Tickets just went on sale. Was a pretty easy process all around. Picked up VIP Saturday tickets.

    Nice I got Friday VIP. Excited to come back to my hometown for the fest!

    It's nice they didn't do it the same weekend as GABF like they did last year, seemed like a lot of breweries didn't attend because of that.

    I got Friday VIP as well. I'm glad it is this weekend, since my step daughter is getting married the weekend before and I'll probably need a lot of beer after dealing with that. :grin:

    Just was able to book hotel and flights for a very reasonable rate, so that's a win as well. October can't get here soon enough.

    FYI From Shelton Brothers. See you in March.
    ------------

    We know you've been waiting on an update from us for The Festival, and while we're disappointed that our original October dates will no longer be possible, we're very excited to announce a new date! We were able to reschedule with the venue and our vendors for MARCH 26-27, 2021, and all tickets are valid for that date. We'll wait to put any more tickets on sale until the event gets closer, but in the meantime we'll be giving y'all more frequent updates on the status of the event (including all precautions that may need to be taken by that time), messages from our brewers, and more, so stay tuned! See y'all in March!

    If you have any questions/concerns or if you can't make the new dates, we've set up an email address to field those directly: festival@sheltonbrothers.com. Cheers!
