Here are a couple of pairs at the low low price of $140 and $150 a pair depending on the day.
They should post pictures of the tickets with their listing

I'm thinking return ferry fare to Vancouver is $28, a Translink day pass is $9. Four 6 oz. tasters at the Granville Island Brewery for $5.75 plus taxes. If you can get a ride to Swartz Bay you'd actually come out ahead. But then you wouldn't get the wonderful ambience of walking around Royal Athletic Park all day.

They still have Friday's left.

I used to go when it was more about the beer, not the drunk idiots trying to drink as fast as they can (which the number has gone up too far in recent years).
The Friday night is the best for the "all about the beer crowd" mind you people watching on a sunny Saturday can be interesting too! We found that a lot of the breweries run out by mid day Saturday so if you are looking to try a few of the Cask or unique offerings Fri is the nite.
See you there ?

They should be trying out a multiple venue situation so that they could increase the participation. Perhaps RAP/SOFMC/Centennial Square. Even just a satellite at Centennial could increase the ticket sales. I don't have time to try and get tickets the first 20 minutes something goes on sale.
That's a good idea.
Anyway, they sure have the weather for it this year.

Liquor Board won't allow including drink prices with admission. This is a very expensive proposition to put on and the threat of closure is never far away (each year the conditions seem to get more onerous). One reason the lines were so long the first day was the necessity to ID EVERYONE in line regardless of age. The delays were surprising to all and were for the most part addressed for Saturday's opening. I drank on the Friday and certainly noticed it busier than I can remember (and I've gone every year since 94)
I was quite surprised at the price of the festival, and on top of that price that you had to buy each tasting of beer. Seemed pricey.

It isn't cheap. A pint at the festival will set you back between $6.25 and $12.50 depending on the beer (1 or 2 tokens) plus your $40 admission. It is definitely an environment thing and there seemed to be lots of people willing to fork over $$$.

It was really nice to have the small US brewers who do not import into Canada, that will not happen this year from what I heard. So basically it will be all beer that is already available here.
