Wanted GABF tickets for members only Saturday session!
« on: August 10, 2011, 08:10:22 PM »
I won the Pro-Am for my homebrew club and the brewer was given 4 tickets for the entry! I was promised one when entering the contest so I never purchased a ticket. Now I find out my ticket was given away to someone else, if anyone wasn't planing to go let me know! I would like to support my beer at the GABF can ya help?

Hi Harlan,

Sorry about the mix-up with the brewery tickets.  When a brewery registers for the GABF they are given a certain number of brewery passes and it is up to the brewery to decide what to do with them.  None of those brewery passes is designated as a Pro-Am pass, this is a decision the brewery has to make regarding how they distribute their brewery passes. In the past, I have seen some breweries that share one or two brewery passes among 2 or 3 people over the course of the festival.

In any event, we have spoken about your problem and have found a solution.

Good luck in the competition!

Cheers,
