Mammoth Brewing Company ‘Bluesapalooza’ tickets selling fast, Saturday almost sold out

Consider this a warning to all you procstrastinators out there – Mammoth Brewing Company is informing folks that tickets for August’s Mammoth Festival of Beers & Bluesapalooza are going very quickly, and that they expect Saturday event tickets to sell out by next week. Friday and Sunday tickets are also going strong, but still not nearly as close to Saturday’s pace, so if you want to come that day, secure your tickets now.

Last year, many people were caught off guard as 36 hours before the event, it sold out. For 2010, organizers are trying to encourage early purchases to avoid any similar incidents.

The Mammoth Festival of Beers and Bluespalooza began 15 years ago by Sam Walker in the parking lot of famous Mammoth happy hour hangout, Whiskey Creek, with just ten breweries and a handful of beer lovers. With BBQ ribs on the grill and a local garage band playing on the roof of the restaurant, it was a fun beginning that has grown with each successive year of the event. The idea behind the event was simple – have fun and introduce Mammoth to the joys of handcrafted beers. From these humble beginnings, the festival is now recognized as one of the best beer and blues festivals in the United States.
