Got Ticket Questions?:

I can’t go to the Beer Dabbler anymore and want to give my tickets away, but they have my name on it. Do I need to change the name? No, the name on the ticket doesn’t matter for entry. Whoever uses the ticket just needs to be 21 years old or older with a valid ID.

Regular tickets are sold out, but I need a Designated Driver ticket. How can I buy one? Unfortunately, once regular tickets are sold out, DD tickets are sold out too. This is because we have reached maximum capacity for the event space. 

Are there going to be any tickets available at the door on the day of the event? Only if tickets are still available.
