Brouhaha for Big Brew Beer Fest at Armory

Crowds wait to get into beer, food, music festival in Morristown.

The National Guard Armory in Morristown was the site of The Big Brew Beer Festival Saturday evening.  The sold-out event included beers from around the country, many from New Jersey, food and other vendors. The band The Nerds performed as part of the event.

As the event went on, many of the attendees, stuck outside waiting to check in, expressed concern over being able to get in at all. With tickets already purchased, many waited two hours to get into the event.

Eric, There was a VIP Lounge. The food donated by Morris Tap & Grill for the hour was: Cheese & Crackers Chicken Bacon Dip Cup Bacon Hummus w/Rosemary Flatbread 5 Alarm Chili w/ crackers and Nachos with Cheese Many enjoyed it. Did you get stuck in the line as a VIP? If so, and although it was not our issue, if you are ever at Morris Tap & Grill, we will be happy to give you a few samples as we feel for anyone who was stuck in those lines. When the VIP hour was over, we donated the rest of the food to the crowd. We didn't have anything to do with the beer, but they did have a good selection.

Clearly Id Jit, you have never made a mistake in your life and are perfect. Those who are without sin, let them cast the first stone. I'm being crucified on here for enjoying myself, telling my truth and for possessing forgiveness and understanding. Mistakes happen, it's part of life. Can't even imagine what you are saying about the elecetric company that worked around the clock to fix their errors after the hurricane. Move on people

As you have commented and seem unable to move on yourself... I am delighted you had an enjoyable time and are able to forgive and understand. Myself and others did not have the same experience. This was a business transaction for $50 and we did not receive the goods or services advertised. It is normal and indeed a requirement for a business failing to provide goods and services to offer a replacement or refund. In this case JMK Shows have not. Had this been a not for profit event I would absolutely forgive. As far as I am aware only a contribution is for charity. I asked on Facebook how much was for charity as I would not dispute that charge however never received a response. I will wait to see if my credit card company understands and forgives or if they treat is as a business transaction and refund my account...

The beauty of a charge back is that it has to be the full amount. The debacle with the scanners SHOULD have led them to admit everyone who was waiting in the freezing cold, and then go around and collect the tickets inside (and scan or manually enter at a later date). Clearly, since it WAS freezing cold, and the event was SOLD OUT, only ticket-holders were waiting on line.
