Default World Beer Festival; Raleigh NC

Hey guys.. anyone planning on going to the World Beer Festival in Raleigh on April 29th..??

i thought it would be really cool to meet some of the local homebrewers
...currently we dont have anything ready but it would be neat to swap ideas and suggestions and samplings of some beer!

lets know if anyone is going?

We are definitely going...planning on the 12-4pm session. There's a thread around here somewhere started by Dude, but I'm not sure where he put it...

Does anyone know where to get tickets to this? They are sold out online and I am desperate.

We've been trying to get tickets for a couple days. We could have had afternoon tickets and passed on them because we were trying to get evening tickets... now they're all gone. Bird in the hand thing...

I went on Craigslist and was able to get one for the afternoon session for $35. Not a great deal, but I will drink my fill.

According to what I've been told about the fall World Beer Festival that takes place in Durham, the afternoon festival is much more of a 'mature' crowd. The evening session can become a large, drunken frat party. That's why we opted for the afternoon session... I don't want to wait in line while some dude tries to negotiate a keg stand with the Rogue servers.

That is actually more my style. I like the action.

Actually I'm an old fart that refuses to grow up. Either way, I know I'm going to have fun tomorrow. I'll be the fat guy in the Miller High Life shirt and the Brewers ball cap.
