But let's say you don't! Right now advance tickets are $20, which gets you entry, beer glass, and 10 tasting tickets. (It's $25 at the door.) But we've got two pairs of tickets to give away for FREE for Blogtown commenters. The Beerfest takes place 4-10 pm on Friday, July 15; noon-10 pm on Saturday, July 16; and noon-7 pm on Sunday, July 17. Please be advised that you'll need to come by the downtown Mercury office to pick up your tickets during office hours (Mon-Fri 9-5) so don't enter if you aren't able to do so.
Here's how to win: simply leave a comment describing the last beer you drank. It can be just a quick 'n' dirty description, or a full, flowery, beer-geek review (nerd). Your choice. Any beer at all is fine, whether it was PBR or an aged Westvleteren (nerd). We'll pick two comments at random and award a pair of tickets to each winner. Commenting closes 9 am Thursday morning; winners will need to come by either Thursday or Friday to get their tickets. Good luck!
UPDATE: This contest is closed and the winners have been notified.
