GABF Pre-Sale: Join or Renew AHA Membership Now to Take Part

logo_lg

If you’re not a member of the American Homebrewer’s Association, I think you should consider joining – Here’s Why.  Membership in the AHA has many benefits including pre-sale access to Great American Beer Festival tickets.  GABF tickets regularly sell out and usually quickly.  Pre-Sale access is a big benefit and helps you increase your chances of getting into the festival.  Join or renew your AHA Membership

From the AHA:

It’s that time of year again—Great American Beer Festival® (GABF) season. Brush off your hop hat, string up those pretzel necklaces and get ready for another weekend of the finest beer American breweries have to offer.

With the 2015 festival selling out lickety-split, there is no question that there are more thirsty beer enthusiasts than GABF tickets, so we want to give you some tips on how to increase your chances.

All American Homebrewers Association members are eligible to participate in the GABF member pre-sale on August 2 at 10:00 a.m. MDT. If you are a current member, ensure your membership will still be active at the time of the pre-sale.

If you are not currently a member, join the American Homebrewers Association by midnight PDT on July 24, 2016, for member pre-sale eligibility.

Please note: joining the American Homebrewers Association does not guarantee tickets. Membership only grants eligibility for the pre-sale.

Here are some other tips to take into consideration when trying to secure 2016 GABF tickets:

  • Register with Ticketmaster prior to the pre-sale to speed up the checkout process.
  • Ensure you have access to the Internet at the time the sale opens.
  • Review the frequently asked questions on GreatAmericanBeerFestival.com for the ins-and-outs of GABF ticket sales. There is a lot of helpful information in there, and we strongly encourage everyone take the time to familiarize yourself with the ticket sales process.

Any tickets remaining from the member pre-sale will go on sale to the general public on August 3, 2016, at 10:00 a.m. MDT.
