The Big Tap In VIP Ticket Giveaway

I’m going back to LA at the end of the month for work. This is a super exciting thing, since I’m going for Showcase and I’ll get to see a lot of friends. But I fly out on Saturday, April 30, which previously was circled on my calendar for something else entirely.

So my loss is your gain, potentially.

I have two VIP tickets that I’m giving away to one lucky reader who promises to enjoy all the amazing craft beer in my absence. These tickets are valued at $65 a piece, but since VIP tickets are actually sold out one could argue they’re even more valuable. If you don’t like your odds, you can always buy regular tickets for $40 each here, but I have it on the highest authority that the VIP tickets – and the special tastings they allow access to – are totally worth it.

Leave a comment telling me your favorite beer before noon on Sunday, April 17, 2011. (I’m keeping the contest open for that long since I have this little event next week that’s going to be pulling my attention just a bit.) I’ll pick the winner using a random number generator and he or she will have 24 hours to respond. Assuming all goes well on that end, tickets will go into the mail on Monday, April 18.

You must be 21 to enter. Since you can’t even get into The Big Tap In if you’re under 21, there’s no point in winning a pair of tickets you can’t use. Just saying.

The Big Tap In benefits HandsOn Volunteer Network of the Valley. You can also donate here if you’re so inclined.

Fine print: I purchased these VIP tickets on my own. I’m not receiving anything from The Big Tap In or sponsor Vintage Estate Wine and Beer. I sincerely just want these tickets that I cannot use to go to a good home!

  1. Favorite beer??? That’s like picking my favorite child! But several that I love above others include Seadog Blueberry Wheat, EEBC Big Hop, Magic Hat Chocolate Raspberry Porter, Heavy Seas Loose Cannon, Ithaca Pyramid Red….I could go on and on, heavens to Betsy I didn’t even get into the seasonals.

  2. My favorite that I can get regularly is Lion Stout, dark goodness!!! However, recently I was able to get a single bottle of a one-off beer from Australia: Red Duck The Ox. I will never be able to get it again and it is a TRUE shame!!!

  3. Favorite beer? Hmm that’s a tough one! Id have to say I could really go for a Corona with a lime right about now since it reminds me of warm weather. Im so anxiously awaiting spring and summer!!!

  4. Mine’s a tie – in the category of foreign: Belhaven Scottish Ale and in the category of domestic: Great Lakes Blackout Stout

  5. I have 2 favorites right now, Dale’s pale ale and Victory hop devil…IF I had to pick just one it would be the hop devil. Although favorite beers change often, the more I drink different beers the more favorites I find.

  6. It may be cliche to say — but usually it is the craft beer that is in front of me. Truly. But lately I have been on a hoppy kick and have quite a few pints Troegs Nugget Nectar and Avery DuganA, so right now they are my favorites (for as long as they are available).

  7. My favorite beer isn’t really a beer (the red-headed stepchild known as CIDER), but it’s yellowish, carbonated, alcoholic and delicious – OH, and (sometimes) comes in a bottle. STRONGBOW.

  8. I love a good Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat in nice warm weather.

    By the way, have you ever been to the North Country Brewery in Slippery Rock? I really think you would like it. We should meet for dinner sometime, if you ever way up north. :)

  9. Probably Great Lakes Brewery Nosferatu – real shame that they only have it available in October, but totally worth the wait!

  11. Way too many great beers to list, so my criteria is limited to only being able to drink one beer. That beer is Anderson Valley Winter Solstice. A great beer has to have balance, & this has it in spades. 6.9% alc, malty(not overly), fruit overtones, with hints of caramel, subtle spicing,thin-bodied-but very complex. Cellar aging does wonders for this beer. Wine lovers who generally don’t like beer, love this beer. Buy a case, so you can drink later in year.

  12. My favorite style of beer is IPA’s(hops,hops, & more hops!), & one that is particularly good is the Weyerbacher Double Simcoe.

  13. Have fun at Showcase!

    My fav is probably Erie Brewing’s Derailed, and I don’t know if jon has one because he likes so many – maybe Vanilla java porter for him? Hope we win :)
