    Best Beer Festival I've been too. The noise level was good for the most part, so many great beers, and so many great people.

    Hey Boys and Girls -

    If you've RSVP'd - lay down you cash NOW...or you may get the boot. Those on the waiting list will take your place at the best beer event of the new year.

    If you've paid - Thanks and Welcome Aboard!!!

    The official cut-off day for this event (and the BABS discount) is Friday, February 15th. You still can attend the beer fest - but at the general entrance fee. I will post more information on Friday.

    1 · February 10, 2013

  • Cliff

    Recently, I placed a request for additional discounted tickets, BUT was informed NOT to expect any more at the $45 rate. This means I will have to remove people who have not paid - sooner than I had hoped - - to make room for paying members.

    If you have not made your payment - please do so and avoid being taken off the list. The good news is, if you discover you have been removed, you may still be able to attend the festival, BUT at the door entrance rate of $75.00.

    If you have any questions, please email me at [masked]

    Thanks!

    This is a short reminder: Your RSVP DOES NOT guarrantee your place at the festival. To secure your space, (and recieve the BABS discounted price of $45), you must not delay sending in your payment. Also, I'm currently limited to just 100 tickets for this event, (this may change closer to the start date.) If you have not paid by Feb. 11, those that are on a waiting list may take your place. You will still be able to attend, but at the full price fee of $75.00 per person.

    The SF Beer Week site says this starts at 4pm, not 4:30. As we get closer it would be good to confirm which it is.

    January 4, 2013

    • Cliff

      Must be a misprint. 4:30 - 8:00 PM

    Cliff, I am coming because I want you to be my friend!

    January 4, 2013

  • Katy

    Cliff, can we order 1 ticket now for ourselves and then order more in the future if we have other friends who want to join in, or do we have to buy any and all tix in one transaction from you?

    January 3, 2013

  • Katy

    FYI, to get the special rate at the Marriott, call[masked] and ask for the "Celebrator Beer News" special rate. It doesn't seem to show up on the Marriott website.

    For those of you on the fence about attending - remember that Monday is a Federal holiday (President's Day), and most of the US has the day off.
