Overpriced chaos in my opinion but it's right in my backyard. I could see it as a fun reason to travel.

Do you have access to a pre-sale code?  I thought it was super fun- yes, crowded but some of the beers you get to taste makes it all worth it!  Plus the eye candy stumbling around is pretty nice, too!!

I don't think they have gone out yet. If you are willing to pay so much to go, what's another $38 to join the aha?

You left off "wish I didn't have to".

I'm mostly busting your chops, but it's nice to support the cause if you're going to reap the rewards.

I'll give mine up if and when they send them out, but I will likely start with my club mates.

If you haven't researched how membership will allow you get that $38 back, and then some, then you are Going about the whole thing wrong.

You got this right.  From the wealth of info in Zymurgy to access to GABF and NHC (I'm still a holdout on the con thing).  Not to mention I get my money back within the first couple months with the pub discounts.

I'd rather drink beer on my patio then pay the inflated price to drink at the pub.  I won't get my $38 back from joining- I won't use the benefits of the membership.  And yes, I do know what discounts are offered through joining from the various establishments in the greater Denver area.  Just trying to score a pre-sale code like I did last year.

Have the presale codes been released yet? I forgot to renew by the deadline and don't know if I will be getting one this time around.

Yep. Must renew by 7/24 to be included. I'll sell mine for 50% markup of the cost of membership. I kid, I kid.

Bummer. Didn't get one.  :-\

I'd love a code hookup if there is someone not using it. Here's to hoping!

Cheers
