A couple of contests have caught my eye lately and thought they'd be worth sharing with you. One requires you to be in Philly on 11/17 with a chance to go to Belgium and brew beer and the other is more for residents of the internet world hoping to go to GABF 2011. Taking the lazy way out, here's the copied text from the first one here in Philly. The second is from the American Homebrewers Association.
One regional brewer and one local beer drinker and will get a chance to win an all expenses paid trip to Belgium to help brew a Philly Beer Week (PBW) collaborative beer with world-renown brewer Dirk Naudts of De Proef Brouwerij. The two lucky winners will be selected during a fun party on Wednesday, November 17 starting at 7 p.m. at McGillin’s Olde Ale House (1310 Drury St., 215-735-5562) in Center City.
It won’t take a jolly fat man in a red suit to fulfill your holiday hopes and dreams—all you need to do is register as a user of HomebrewersAssociation.org, and you’ll be entered to win a trip to the 2011 Great American Beer Festival (GABF)!
The contest winner receives airfare for two, three nights of hotel accommodations and two all-session passes to Great American Beer Festival 2011 in Denver, Colo., September 29 - October 1, 2011.
Who knew that drinking beer could be so much fun and rewarding?
