BURLINGTON — Thinking about going to the Vermont Brewers Festival on the Burlington waterfront this summer? You might be out of luck. A festival producer says tickets sold out in 11 minutes for the 22nd annual event on July 18 and 19.
The Burlington Free Press reports that the 8,400 tickets were sold online with a four-ticket limit.
A total of 46 craft brewers, including 34 from Vermont, will offer up their beer for sampling. Tickets costs $30 for one four-hour tasting session. One session will be held July 18 and two on July 19.
Five years ago organizers decided the festival had become too crowded and so decided to limit ticket sales.
