Another beer festival sells out in record time, ticketing website crumbles under stress

Didn’t expect that tickets to the 2013 Winter Beer Festival at Fifth Third Ballpark would sell out in about 13 hours? You’re not alone. Scott Graham, director of the Michigan Brewers Guild, which hosts the festival, didn’t either. “I really thought the tickets would last at least a week,” said Graham, who was shocked to discover on Saturday, Dec. 1, that tickets to the 8th annual festival, which has been steadily gaining in popularity, didn’t last past 2 p.m.
