World Beer Festival Tickets Available July 17

Posted by on Tue, Jul 15, 2014 at 4:23 PM

Tickets available to the general public for the annual World Beer Festival this October in Durham go on sale at noon on Thursday, July 17.
The event is always popular, so popular in fact that organizers this year have reduced the number of tickets available by 35 percent in an attempt to ease crowd congestion. That means you should get your tickets sooner rather than later if you hope to go.
General admission tickets are $55 and include a tasting glass and unlimited 2 ounce tastings from more than 200 craft beers. The tickets also grant access to the "Art of Beer Experience" with its ingredient samplings, seminars, pairings and more,
VIP admission is $70 and includes an air-conditioned hospitality area, a commemorative gift and a three-issue subscription to All About Beer magazine. Their release also touts that the hospitality area will have "real bathrooms." We shudder to think about what that means for those who don't go the VIP route. 
The event, held Oct. 11 at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, will be held in two sessions. The first is noon to 4 p.m. while the evening session runs from 6 to 10. You must purchase a ticket for each session if attending both.
