    Easily the best beer event I went to last year and I wasn't even VIP. All for a good cause too.

    I'll be getting my VIP tickets this year and can't wait to do this again!

    Seriously contemplating attending this year. Looked like a total blast last year, and you can't beat donating to charity at the same time.

    Don - how does the ticket process go? The regular admission will go on sale before the VIP, do I need both to get into the event? I'd like to get VIP but will be pleased with regular admission if I can't get a ticket on June 1. The AltBrau post made it seem like regular tickets go on sale pretty soon

    Last year VIP sold out QUICK! So I would be ready for June 1. It's the best beer festival I've ever been to.

    Sold out in 1 day, 2015 it sold out in 2-3 weeks, so I suspect it will be a few hours this year.

    So I turn 30 on August 18th, this sounds awesome, but slightly unclear.

    Is this a traditional festival where my tickets get me limited samples and food options? Is this more like Huna or DLD where I get guaranteed bottles and access to the festival? How much are tickets? How much are tickets for the events on the 17th and 18th?

    I am sure the answers to all this exist somewhere on the internet, can someone direct me to the answers?

    JGlitz87 info at brewsfornewavenues.org NOT at all like DLD or Hunahpu :)

    Each event: dinner, oyster and gueuze social, and Brews (VIP or General Admission (GA) are ticketed separately.
    You can look at the site for info on the past years events.

    Brews on Saturday is VIP from 2-5pm and GA from 5-11pm. VIP gets you drinks and food during VIP, as well as access to the silent auction, and access and drinks during GA. GA you purchase tokens for each drink. GA also has a wall of beer, live auction, raffle, food carts, and live bands.

    Everything goes to charity.

    Went to the website and could not find ticket prices from years past (I am trusting the beer list will be worthwhile so not worried about that not working...)

    Going to try to talk my wife into possibly making this trip, so ticket price may be necessary.

    VIP will be $85 and come with a tshirt designed and printed by INK, New Avenues for Youth's screen printing social enterprise. Also gets you drinks throughout the event, food during VIP (cheese, charcuterie, oyster hour, some others tba), access to VIP kegs, access to silent auction.

    Oyster and Gueuze social tickets will be $50 and covers beers on draft and oysters and other food catered throughout. There will also be special pours for purchase from bottles (tab) from Cantillon.

    General admission tickets will be $10.

    Will bottles of the blend be on sale for the VIP session or is that only GA?

    Hoping the bottles are for on-site consumption only, I'm already cringing at the thought of some shitlord raffling off bottle made exclusively for a charity event

    We haven't decided on bottle sales yet. Likely 1/pp during VIP and rest during GA, but not sure.

    I like the idea of on site pours for sale though...
