Thanks.  I've sent that on to the AHA, although I don't know if there's anything they can do.

I doubt there is much they can do.  It's just like the craft beer black market.  People buy the beer and sell it for so much more on ebay that the brewers are starting to notice that they can get more and more and more for their product so why not charge and get the profits rather than letting some random guy get the profits.

You're correct....the reply was that realistically there's nothing they can do.

Tickermaster's system should have a record of the AHA membership number tied to the ticket numbers.  I dont think it's too much to ask to have to furnish the corresponding membership card with the ticket at the door.  After all, this is the members only session...

I have tickets for the GABF but unfortunately can not attend this year. I am not looking to make money, just want to sell at face value. Tickets are as follows:

             2 Friday Member GABF tickets plus farm to table.        $120.00 x 2
             2 Sat. Eve Member GABF tickets.                               $65.00 x 2

These member tickets are transferrable per the Homebrewers Association. Please message me if you are interested!

I'm looking to trade a Saturday evening session ticket for a Friday evening ticket if anyone is interested!  I'm also looking to buy an additional Friday evening session ticket.

Thanks!

I've got 2 tickets for Saturday evening, accidentally bought in a panic the day of the quick sell-out.

Just looking for face value $65.00 ea. Would prefer to sell as a pair, and would take lower offers for that.

Surprisingly, these are the only tickets I of the 4 sessions that have "Members" on them rather than "General Admission"
