Let's go to another beer festival

Well, as a group we skipped the Fall Beer festival after a less than stellar Summer Beer festival at Webster Hall. Luckily, they are going back to the Armory down on Lexington Ave, which has a much better layout for beer-festing.

We are targeting the Saturday afternoon session (this is called Session II). As before, I know myself and many others will be getting the VIP package, which gets you in an hour early. Lines are shorter, you can talk to the brewers and you get an extra hour of beer.

For VIP, the session starts at one pm. For general admission, session starts at 2:00 pm. In either event, plan on showing up 30-45 minutes ahead of opening time to get in line.

Early bird pricing of $60 is currently available for VIP tickets, then it bumps up to $65 through 1/24/14 and increases more after that. These sometimes sell out so plan accordingly.

Naturally, I will be hand crafting my own pretzel necklace to wear and encourage others to do likewise. Based on the amount of people who admired mine at the last festival, if you want to make some extra cash, make several ahead of time then sell them to people waiting in line!

Here's the link for tickets.

Remember, you must bring a valid ID and your ticket to be admitted.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm not sure if the emails are going out for the group due to the issues the website is having but just a reminder:

    If you have VIP tickets, get there by 12:30, doors open at 1:00 pm. General admission , doors open at 2:00. Best to get there by 1:30. There will be lines!

    Bring a valid ID. You won't get in without one!

    Bring your ticket.

    Bring your pretzel necklace.

    I will post my location on the app during the event. If you can't find anyone from the group, just post something in the comments and we'll find you.
