In lieu of a baking post today, I have an exciting giveaway for you! If you’d have told me two years ago that today I would be doing a giveaway related to beer, I would have probably laughed in your face – beer was NOT my thing. And truth be told, I still prefer an expertly crafted cocktail over a frothy pint. That being said, I absolutely love going to craft beer festivals, trying all sorts of new, crazy and inventive beers. While I have a hard time finishing a big mug ‘o beer, I can easily put away several tasting sizes, and it’s a blast to spend an evening tasting and talking with the brewers who make all of the beer.
In preparation for the Boston Local Food Festival on October 7th, I have been writing some feature pieces on participants in the festival, including one feature on a participant of the 3rd Annual Local Craft Brewfest. As an added bonus, I was given 2 tickets to give away for this awesome event! If you’re in the area on Friday, October 5th and interested in tasting tons of great local craft brews – this giveaway is for you. The festival provides a fantastic opportunity to taste some great beer, chat with local brewers, meet some local food producers, and have an all-around great time.
The event will take place on Friday, October 5, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM on the waterfront in Fort Point, Boston. This is a 21+ event and all attendees must have a valid ID. For more information and a complete list of vendors, visit their website. You can also buy tickets here.
