31 July 2012
Looks like Ticketmaster issues, mobile phone issues and ticket printing issues have all combined to make today a challenging day to get pre-sale GABF 2012 tickets. Above are just a few of the responses but there were irate Tweets all afternoon including calls to drop Ticketmaster and even reports that a membership number for the Brewers Association was NOT required. For what it’s worth I have seen plenty of tweets claiming successful purchases.
UPDATE: All purchases made by Non-Members of the Brewers Association will be voided. This from the The GABF Facebook page:
To our American Homebrewers Association members - here’s the latest on the pre-sale review: Ticketmaster and the AHA are finalizing review of the pre-sale purchasers list. We are triple-checking the very small number of possible non-member purchases against AHA member records. From there, if we have not yet verified the membership status of the purchaser, Ticketmaster will call and email the purchaser to invite them to provide their AHA membership number. In other words, no purchase will be cancelled without the purchaser having had a chance to provide a member number.
More information to come as we have it. Thank you all for your support of the AHA and the festival.
