Q: I got a ticket for the Beer Lover’s Market or Beer Lover’s Ball but I can’t attend. Can I give my ticket to someone else?

A: Advanced tickets are non-transferrable. Ticket holders must match the name on our registration list and provide ID (21+). If circumstances prevent you from attending, please contact us via the Eventbrite ticket site.

Q: I got a Beer Lover’s Market ticket for Group 3 at 3:30pm. Can I just show up earlier to visit the cash bar or merchandise sales?

A: Sorry, but due to limited venue capacity we will only admit ticket holders with positive ID that matches their registration during the time slot that they have registered.

Q: I got a ticket to purchase Lawson’s Finest bottles and cans. What does that mean?

A: All ticket holders will have the opportunity to purchase all the bottles and cans at the limits listed. You must visit the venue during your allotted time slot, and will need to leave the venue at the end of the session allotted for your ticket type. (E.g., Group 2 is 2:00pm to 3:30pm, exit by 3:30pm).

Q: I did not get a ticket for the Beer Lover’s Market sale. Am I out of luck?

A: Sorry, but our venue has a limited capacity. Stay tuned to our website and social media for updates and information about special keg tappings at local venues in Vermont on our Anniversary weekend.
