It is indeed the Great Canadian Beer Festival this weekend. This will be my first GCBF and I had no idea how popular it was. I lucked out in getting tickets by just happening to show up at the beer store to grab the last few available. I had planned to buy tickets a few days later, but the fates tempted me out on the first day of sales. Anyway, even though tickets are long sold out, there are still a few ways to get to GCBF:
- Craigslist, here are a few of my searches
- Ask Nicely
- Win them, I saw a few contests last week, try to find them online.
If you miss out, we’ll post about how awesome it was next week so that you can feel really bad about missing it. Maybe it’ll motivate you to get tickets nice and early next year? Seriously though, it is going to be an awesome time. The lineup looks wonderful and our stay at Swans includes a free tasting, and then we’ll have the excellent Canoe brewpub just down the road…
In preparation for GCBF (and to help recover from the Labour Day weekend) I am embarking on an epic four day beer fast. Wish me luck.
