Q: What? A: Brewfest. Gitchee Gumee Brewfest, to be exact.
Q: Oh, okay. Cool. Where? A: Wessman Arena, Superior, WI.
Q: Huh? A: Superior, WI…that’s Sconie.
Q: Oh, Sconie, got it. When? A: This Saturday, April 10 from 4 P.M. to 8 P.M.
Q: Damn, you’re a bit late posting this. A: Uh…the recession and global warming caused a delay. That wasn’t a question, by the way.
Q: Oh, sorry. How much is this gonna set me back? A: $40 at the door (limited to 1,200). $75 for VIP ticket. VIP’s get in at 3:30 through a separate entrance, have a separate room from which they can look down upon the riff-raff while eating pizza and peeing in a private bathroom. Oh, designated drivers get in free with someone who has paid for admission. Tickets can be purchased….well, check out the website.
Q: Can I buy tickets on-line, over the phone or do I have to hit Duluth/Superior to buy them. A: *sigh* The site doesn’t say anything about buying them on-line or over the phone; only at the door and at select locations. But it might be worth your time to call the Jaycees. I seem to recall my wife being able to purchase tickets from them in past years.
Q: You’re kind of a dink. A: Again, that wasn’t a question.
Q: Sorry. You’re kind of a dink, aren’t you? A: Thank you. Yes, deal with it.
Q: What Minnesota brews will be available? A: I don’t know. I didn’t plan the goddamn thing. Look, Schell/Grain Belt, Cold Spring, Lake Superior, Mantorville/St. Croix, Summit and Surly are all supposed to be there. Figure it out for yourself.
