Update: spotramer1, and JustSaying won the tickets. See you all at BrewFest!
While scattered thunderstorms can always be a bummer, Saturday's forecast high temperature of 77 degrees has me seriously excited about this weekend's BrewFest. Weather aside, participating breweries range from corporate big bottlers like Anheuser-Busch all the way down to the little local guys like newcomer Lakewood Brewing Company.

Other local breweries participating include Peticolas (who will hopefully drop the Velvet Hammer), Rahr, Franconia, and Deep Ellum. Tickets are on sale here for $25, but $60 will get you in an hour early and access to VIP area with liquor sampling and catered food.
Update 12:38 p.m.: Just got word from our team that the full details of the VIP package includes access to full-size brews from Alaskan Brewing Co., fully-stocked bar, complimentary food from Park Tavern & Asian Mint & The Mint, a private live DJ, Alaskan jet ski simulator ride, Tour the Crow Collections of Asian Art and more.
If you're flat-ass broke, there's still hope. We're giving away two sets of two VIP tickets right here on this blog post. All you have to do is put a comment in that comment section you guys have loved so much lately, and I'll use a random number generator to pick the winners at 5 p.m. today. Just make sure you leave an email address or a way to contact you in your comment.
It's time to get your suds on.
