(Denver, CO) – The Brewers Association, a BeerPulse sponsor, had its hands full on Tuesday with Ticketmaster. A technical glitch on Ticketmaster’s website prevented Brewers Association members from ordering pre-sale tickets to the nation’s largest beer festival, The Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado. The feedback on Twitter has been less than positive with many calling for the company to drop Ticketmaster in favor of an alternative like Eventbrite next year. To make matters worse, some are reporting that the site didn’t ask for a Brewers Association membership number, meaning that potentially anyone could get tickets. Some are reporting that the Pre-Sale tickets are now sold out. Hat tip to Chipper Dave for coining “Ticketdisaster.” See the full list of tweets.
@ @ @ why won’t ticketmaster let anyone complete their order???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ticketmaster, I’m SERIOUSLY clicking that box. As hard as I can. Why don’t you believe me? #GABF
WTF is wrong with @? I keep getting an error when trying to buy GABF tix. I accepted the terms 900 times!
Hey, Ticketmaster – Why in the hell would the convenience fees be half on a mobile phone what they are on a desktop browser for #GABF?
@ Was finally able to get through on my phone, but it didn’t even ask if I was a member. Thanks again @ and @
#GABF & Ticketmaster success with MOBILE site. There is no member number check on mobile, so I’m sure they will all get cancelled anyway.
Also, the Ticketmaster iphone site does not require your member number. It’s a free-for-all. #GABF @ @ @
Dear @ @, Dump @ next year. Go @. Trust us, they rock.
Hey @, let’s talk about not using @ in the future. Check out @ instead.
Terrible experience trying to get tickets to @. Ticketmaster’s “I Agree” button doesn’t work. I wish they used @ instead.
#GABF finally got Ticketmaster to work..how about dumping them for next year GABF!!
I do not remember getting #GABF being such a hassle last year. Did @ use ticketmaster last year? Can you use something else next?
@ Was dutifully on ticketmaster at 10am to purchase members session, but missed out because of terms & conditions glitch. Boo-urns.
Ticketmaster or Ticketdisaster? GABF has major issues with 1st day of ticket sales for AHA-BA members. Reportedly fixed. How will Thurs go?
