    I would ♥ to win this package, please!! I am broke as a joke and this would make my entire summer. TY for the chance!! :)

  2. laura July 19, 2010 at 3:32 pm #

    I would like to attend (well, I would like my boyfriend to attend) because it was my boyfriend’s birthday last weekend and I was too broke to get him much of a gift. But, he LOVES beer (and only drinks OR and WA beers). This would be perfect.

  3. Lucas July 19, 2010 at 3:32 pm #

    I would like to win because I like Portland, I like beer and I love Portland beer.

  4. Jaimee July 19, 2010 at 3:32 pm #

    I walked by this last Saturday while I was downtown and it looked like a good party was going on, put my name in the hat for the package, I would love to check it out! Plus, what is better than beer on a nice summer day???

  5. Amy July 19, 2010 at 3:36 pm #

    I haven’t been able to make it to a beer fest all summer (so sad!) and would love to win this package. My husband is newly employed (after 20 months unemployed) and this would be a fun thing to treat him to!

  6. Hannah July 19, 2010 at 3:36 pm #

    Two of my good friends are coming down from Seattle to bask in the beery goodness of Portland. I would love to treat them to some unusual and delicious brews in the sun. (Also I want them to move here and this is definitely a selling point).

    Help me be an awesome hostess of our city!

  7. Tito July 19, 2010 at 3:44 pm #

    I would love to win!! I am an ardent Oregon beer enthusiast, but simply cannot afford to hit all the wonderful brewfests this month.

  8. Damon P July 19, 2010 at 3:45 pm #

    I volunteered last year, but this year I just want to go and have fun! Viva Beervana!

  9. Tiffany Wildes July 19, 2010 at 3:46 pm #

    I love love love beer! Plus I have always wanted to go to the festival but I’ve spent the last few years in school with no money…so paying rent always won over beer.

  10. Justine Clark July 19, 2010 at 3:48 pm #

    I have only heard great things about the Brewers Festival and have been looking forward to it since I turned 21 last November. This will be my first year attending and I am excited to try the fruit beers especially. Plus, can’t beat a great (and hopefully sunny) weekend with something fun to do!

  11. Meg July 19, 2010 at 4:00 pm #

    Pick me! I love beer. I love Oregon. I love sunshine. I love PDX Pipeline. …and I’ve never been to the festival before and I’m dying to check it out.

  12. Kirk W. July 19, 2010 at 4:17 pm #

    I’m a huge beer geek and this weekend will be my farewell to Portland, the city I love the most. I’ll be banished off to Eugene for law school in the fall and I need a good send off!

  13. Justin July 19, 2010 at 4:19 pm #

    The beer festival is a great place to bond with your fellow co-workers outside of the office. Might even end up getting you into trouble if you’re not careful. I’m willing to take that risk!

  14. Richtpt July 19, 2010 at 4:22 pm #

    We’ve been to every one of these since it started, our kids (8 & 5) have never missed one either. This is such a fun event, a great place to sample some amazing beers, friendly people, and even enjoyable for our kids! Last year we got some friends to join us for the first time and they can’t wait to come back again! Several years ago our family started a tradition, we all wear tie-die shirts. Silly, but fun! This is the highlight of our summer! Winning these would just be so fantastic!! :)

  15. Josie Gardner July 19, 2010 at 4:44 pm #

    I just moved to Portland from So Cal with my husband (a home brewer) it’d be nice treat to save the expense after all of our moving expenses. We’re still learning our way around town and the culture of Portland. Winning this would also double as a birthday gift for both of us (his 7/14, mine 8/11)!! :-)

  16. Sara July 19, 2010 at 4:54 pm #

    I would really like to win the contest. My husband and I are new to Portland and this will be our first Brewfest!

  17. rob downer July 19, 2010 at 5:06 pm #

    two reasons why I need to go… First is that the secret to my youthful appearance is hops. They are the elixr of youth. Second, because i’m scary looking until everyone around me has had good beer.

  18. Ashley Stuart July 19, 2010 at 5:29 pm #

    Pick me because I need to remember why I sat through all that rain this winter :)

  19. Rachel July 19, 2010 at 5:56 pm #

    Oooooh! Please pick me! I can’t afford to go without a sponsorship from the PDX Pipeline Beer Fairy!!!

  20. Sarah July 19, 2010 at 6:52 pm #

    I love the Brewers festival and, after years of utzing, my friend is finally taking her vacation in Portland to come to the Brewers fest! I love this event, have been going for years, and love to show the true spirit of Portland to my friends from out of town. I am unemployed and will definitely find a way to get there, but this would definitely help. Keep Portland Beered!

  21. Scott July 19, 2010 at 7:38 pm #

    I just got home from my first day of work after months of searching (even relocating from Central Oregon). I don’t get a paycheck till the 15th. Would love a congratulatory beer from Pdxpipeline if y’all are so inclined as to hook me and my wife up! P.s. I’m not the previous poster Amy’s husband!

  22. Kate July 19, 2010 at 8:30 pm #

    I want to attend because there will be Coco Loco from Kona Brewing! I know they’re not an Oregon brewer, but seriously, I tried this beer in Hawaii this April and it was one of the best things I’ve had this year!

  23. LaValle Linn July 19, 2010 at 8:33 pm #

    Voice from the Couch is recovering from back surgery on June 22. He’s up and walking and wanting to do something a bit more exciting than walk around the block. Taking him to the Oregon Brewers Festival would be a win-win. I could take my camera and he could walk in a new venue.!!!

  24. Peggy P July 19, 2010 at 10:54 pm #

    Please Oh Please Pick Me! What a year it has been and I always go to OBF…been going for many years. This year almost had to be eliminated due to cut backs at work and well, as everyone else, hard times.

    Me LOVES me some good craft beer! I will be going anyway, but on a limited budget…this would SO make my year if I got to drink all that I wanted without any worry.

    I’m taking public transport…so no worries about the drinking and driving! And I wanted to go on Friday…so if I win I’ll be cashing in my winnings right away and I will spread the Awesome Word of PDX Pipeline!


    • Peggy P July 19, 2010 at 10:55 pm #

      oh yeah…I will take lots of pictures too!

  25. zee July 19, 2010 at 10:54 pm #

    I’d like to go to the brewfest because beer makes me laugh. This quote makes me laugh as well. “Once, during Prohibition, I was forced to live for days on nothing but food and water.” W.C. Fields

  26. Phillip Stevens July 20, 2010 at 4:38 am #

    This will be my first Oregon Brewers Festival and I am stoked ….I am a person who is known to buy a round or two so if I win this contest I wouldn’t be the only person benefiting from the victory :) Looking forward to drinking beer this weekend ! Don’t forget to bring a designated driver folks ! Drink responsibly !

  27. steeef July 20, 2010 at 7:46 am #

    I would love to win. I’ve got friends coming in from out of town, and winning this would allow us to enjoy that much more Oregon beer!

  28. Lauren July 20, 2010 at 10:37 am #

    We went to Oregon Brew Fest for the first time last syear. It was one of the highlights of the summer. My boyfriend thought that must be what heaven is like. We would love to go again!

  29. Randy July 20, 2010 at 11:23 am #

    This is my first summer in Portland and would be a great way to ge out, meet some people, and try some amazing Portland Beer!

  30. Erika Lee Sears July 20, 2010 at 11:46 am #

    I would love to win :) Pick me! Pick me!

  31. brastein July 20, 2010 at 1:03 pm #

    It’s my birthday this weekend, and if I win, my girlfriend doesn’t have to buy me a package and can focus her efforts on ‘more important things’…… ;)

  32. Jeremy July 20, 2010 at 1:31 pm #

    After being out of state for the past couple of years, I can’t tell you how excited I am to attend this year’s festival! I have friends coming in from Wichita KS and Phoenix AZ who desperately need to learn what craft beer is all about. (adding the word “ice” or taking off the word “light” does not make it a craft beer)
    After spending most of my budget on all the other fun beer events throughout the month (best month ever!), meeting great people, great brewers, drinking great beer the extra help would be great! Good luck to everyone that’s entered. Whoever wins is going to have a great time!

  33. ChrisM July 20, 2010 at 3:37 pm #

    This will be my 6th or 7th festival. This year we are having a mini-high school reunion on Thursday. Looking forward to an awesome time!

  34. Teresa Wheeler July 20, 2010 at 3:58 pm #

    I would like to attend the brew fest to drink good beer with friends and family on a beautiful weekend! I’m coming all the way from Utah and can’t wait to taste some of the delicious brews we can’t get here.

  35. G Off July 20, 2010 at 4:03 pm #

    Please pick me, I won’t cut in line! :)

  36. toe knee July 20, 2010 at 4:06 pm #

    I like beer. Very much.

  37. Meagan July 20, 2010 at 4:33 pm #

    I would love to win because sunday the 25th is my 25th birthday! (Really, check my facebook!) Its my golden birthday and I’m a quarter century old! What better way to spend the day!?

  38. Rb. July 20, 2010 at 8:04 pm #

    Sounds like a fabulous edition to the weekend’s plans! Fingers crossed…

  39. Geoff July 20, 2010 at 9:24 pm #

    50 extra tokens will really help me hit all the tents

  40. Joscelyn J. July 20, 2010 at 9:45 pm #

    I’m a student at OSU in the Food Science and Technology Department where students can actually “major in Beer” (Fermentation Science). I’m a poor college student and taking summer classes. Winning this prize will help give me a great reason to take a study break!

  41. Saba July 21, 2010 at 8:24 am #

    I like guys with beards. Guys with beards like beer. I’m ready for some good beer drinking and beard watching.

  42. Matt July 21, 2010 at 11:22 am #

    Winning this would make my trip from Spokane truly awesome.

  43. CT July 21, 2010 at 11:26 am #

    Because I have honestly not looked more forward to a trip, to a city I have heard nothing but amazing things about, to see friends, meet new people, and experience all that Portland has to offer. Free entry would be foamiest head on top of what is going to be a most fantastic trip (beer).

    And it would do wonders to washing down the Voodoo donuts and Pine State biscuits…

  44. Erik July 21, 2010 at 12:08 pm #

    This weekends weather is looking great and would love to enjoy it at the BrewFest!

  45. Cami July 21, 2010 at 12:34 pm #

    I was pregnant this time last year and obviously couldn’t go. However, baby’s daddy got to go last year. Now it’s this mommy’s turn to get out of the house to enjoy some tasty brews! Plus, now that we’re on one income, it would be nice to save $50 by winning a package. Thanks! :)

  46. Cristina July 21, 2010 at 12:47 pm #

    My boyfriend has his three best friends from Phoenix coming to town this weekend. They have been waiting to come specifically until the Oregon Brewer’s fest occurs, but they are broke asses so they could really use the tokens.

  47. Jessica July 21, 2010 at 2:55 pm #

    I would like to attend because we go every year! Free tokens would be great!!!

    • Jimmy July 22, 2010 at 4:36 pm #

      Because there’s nothing better in this world than free beer!

  48. Lisa July 21, 2010 at 6:19 pm #

    I’d like to go because I can see the fest from my cubicle and that is just cruel.

  49. leelee July 21, 2010 at 8:09 pm #

    Really…I DO need this as my husband…get this…DOES NOT LIKE BEER and needs to be enlightened! A mug or 2 (or 3 or 4) of beer other than PABST would do him (and me!) good. YES DEAR…beer has come along way since Olympia and Hamms…

  50. Sherry July 21, 2010 at 9:16 pm #

    Bachelorette party for cousin’s daughter is Saturday and 8 women coming from Eugene, Medford and LaCenter. So I would be the total old lady hero is I won this. All girls range from 25-61…we will add alot of excitement to photo!!! wooHoo…

  51. flexnthebeermuscles July 21, 2010 at 9:52 pm #

    Yes, please. I’ve already spent too much money on the int’l beerfest from last weekend and on the OG Oktoberfest in Munich this September.

  52. Lao-Ocean July 21, 2010 at 10:49 pm #

    I want the tickets so I can show my out of town guests the awesomeness of NW beer!

  53. Justin July 21, 2010 at 11:12 pm #

    “NW Beer is amazing”…Truer words have never been spoken, I would really enjoy a free token, without NW Beer my heart would be broken. So let the beer flow because this hophead says it is better than token…

  54. Abi July 22, 2010 at 12:19 am #

    oooh – pick me! I’m headed your way, and who wouldn’t love free tickets!

  55. Ashley July 22, 2010 at 12:26 am #

    I’d like to be chivalrous and say I’d use the tokens for good, but I’m not going to lie. The power I’d wield with such an awesome force of free beer might be too great, and I surely would fall to the dark side. Oh well! Still want it! I hear my sister is a nice person so I should be good to go on the evil thing.

  56. Kathleen July 22, 2010 at 9:58 am #

    The reason I would like to win $50 to the brewers fest is because 2010 has not been a good year and I could use a turn in my luck. My aunt was just given 1-4 months to live, I got rear-ended a few weeks ago with over $7000 in damage to my car, yesterday I tried to break-up with my boyfriend of 4 years, I am recovering from knee surgery, and I found out I am allergic to Latex. I need something good and what better then beer, free, riverfront, and friends.

  57. Chris July 22, 2010 at 11:51 am #

    Saturday evening my buddies “Wild & Crazy Bachelor Party Beerfest” will ensue and free tickets to the OBF would absolutely be the highlight of the night, weekend, and summer!

  58. MeLissa July 22, 2010 at 12:05 pm #

    I would really like to win the admission with tokens!! I promised my friend I would take him for his birthday present….. But mis-calculated and don’t have enough money to even get the $20 package…. Sooo I’m hoping maybe the person reading this knows how I feel : ( I would hate to tell my friend… Hey if u wanna go, you would have to pay for yourself.. Yeah it sucks

  59. dondondon July 22, 2010 at 12:15 pm #

    I would like to win because Brew Fest is amazing and I’m on a horse. [insert whistle here]

  60. Mya July 22, 2010 at 12:16 pm #

    Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer! (Sung to the tune of Sending Out An SOS). Please, Karma, smile upon my head in the form of a free ride to Beerfest!

  61. Ben July 22, 2010 at 12:18 pm #

    I would like to attend the OBF because I like beer. Specifically, I like Oregon Beer.

    I would also geek-pimp the shit out of it, Flickring, Tweeting, and Facebooking; telling (and showing) all my followers how much fun I’m having, and who made it all possible. /wink, wink/

  62. Brian July 22, 2010 at 12:19 pm #

    My girlfriend and I love beer, I’d love to be able to afford to take her on a date out to this but I am a poor college student. Help me out!

  63. Mya July 22, 2010 at 12:21 pm #

    Ahem–Message In A Bottle. I must be drunk already.

  64. Chris July 22, 2010 at 12:25 pm #

    My girlfriend and I are planning to start an oregon brewery guide for younger beer advocates. Plans are just in the beginning stages, but we plan to experience as many local beers as possible and increase the interest. She’s volunteering for the event and it would be great if we could experience these the various handcrafted beers together. Keep Portland Beered!

  65. Mara July 22, 2010 at 12:29 pm #

    A lot of the reason I moved to Portland was because of the beer scene, I’ve plugged Portland as the beer capital of the world everywhere, even to die hard Germans in Munich. Can’t afford the festival though. Go Beervana!

  66. Kiera Hansen July 22, 2010 at 12:34 pm #

    I have been excited for this beer fest since last year when I was in town but unable to attend. I have never been to this wonderful craft brew fest and was greatly looking forward to it this year. Craft beer is delicious and something I am really excited about. Some of my favorite breweries that I dont ever get to taste on tap are going to be there including 21st amendment and Anderson Valley as well as many local beers and others I haven’t tried. However, after moving back to the Pacific Northwest to be with my family during some difficult circumstances, I have been unemployed for NINE MONTHS and am about to dish out a lot of money for out of state tuition in a Social Work program. Lately, my beer drinking has been in Laurelhurst park and during happy hours. Needless to say, I can’t dish out the dough to go to this beer fest and would love the tokens and package so that I can go with a friend who is actually coming into town for this specific event.

  67. Chelsea July 22, 2010 at 12:45 pm #

    I am totally broke, and winning these tickets would be the only way I could go…. I would love to go! Pick me!

  68. Jessica Breedlove July 22, 2010 at 12:46 pm #

    I should win because I need to drink some good beer for free!

  69. Jared July 22, 2010 at 12:59 pm #

    Id like to attend this mainly to see whats new and to try out the new beers that I would otherwise not be able to try and taste. I went last year and really had a blast of a time, looking forward to going again this year.

  70. Mira July 22, 2010 at 1:08 pm #

    I would absolutely love the chance to win this package…my boyfriend and I just moved to Portland (although I was raised here, I was away at school and recently graduated). My boyfriend had been here with me a few times before the move, but this is really his first experience getting to know Portland on a much deeper level than simply vacationing. He loves beer, and would be completely blown away with the fest – being on the water, the multitude of breweries, and the people are all so different than where he’s from!

  71. lowendfrequency July 22, 2010 at 1:18 pm #

    I never win anything and complain about it endlessly. Hook me up with this free package and put an end to a lifetime of bitching and moaning! You can make a difference!

  72. NorCalOSU July 22, 2010 at 1:53 pm #

    This ticket would be for my “Brewther” not me! (Home brew partner + “brother”) While continuing to show his dedication to the craft, he claims to have spent his last dollar on ingredients for our home brew sesh tomorrow instead of the festival. The bottom line is either I pay for his entry to get in, or you guys could help a “brewther” (me) out and get our fellow “brewther” to Portlands Festival of the Year. VIVA LA BREW!

  73. Sean July 22, 2010 at 2:09 pm #

    I’d love to win this package so I can get stupid crazy with the masses…..oh yeah, and my cousin will be up from Vegas hosting a bachelor party and I’d like to show him how it’s done.

  74. Steph July 22, 2010 at 2:23 pm #

    me. please. i’ve been off beer for 366 days, trying to acquire a taste for vodka infused fruit, mango pomegranate martinis, a full red wine that is suppose to feel generous in my mouth, russian rum and jamaican vodka. I floundered famously. I like beer. a smorgasbord of beer please at the brewer’s festival.

  75. Dub July 22, 2010 at 3:34 pm #

    I would like to be able to explain gratis vs. libre from experience: “free as in beer.”

  76. Rob W July 22, 2010 at 4:11 pm #

    I could do this package justice.

  77. Kirsten July 22, 2010 at 4:24 pm #

    I’m from New Zealand and I think our beer is better than yours, but I need to taste to be absolutely sure and in NZ we are paid in sheep, so I have no money…

  78. jason Castro July 22, 2010 at 4:25 pm #

    Free tickets and free beer! Tight, let me enjoy my beer for free! Then by the time I am sober I’ll have a job, hopefully. Dangit!

  79. frank normandin July 22, 2010 at 4:28 pm #

    cause i $50 would buy me all the beer i need!

  80. Tim July 22, 2010 at 4:28 pm #

    I would like to win because my wife can actually go with me to the festival if I do! :D

  81. James Martin July 22, 2010 at 4:29 pm #

    I do not want to win, I do not like beer, I would not use the tokens, would sell the program and give away the mugs…So please do not even enter me into the giveaway…

  82. Heather Ahlf July 22, 2010 at 4:31 pm #

    As a new Brewer’s Fest volunteer, I’m eager to pour
    Luscious flavors of beer of hops, malt and more.
    Yet, I’d also love to see the perspective of drinkers
    To taste a sea of crafty beers made by the greatest thinkers.
    Music, friends, lots to drink and eat, and fun by the river
    The excitement cannot be beat, and the suspense for Beer Fest makes me quiver!

  83. brett feldman July 22, 2010 at 4:31 pm #

    Wow the brewers fest is gonna be outta control this year! Winning a $50 package would make it perfect

  84. Jordan July 22, 2010 at 4:32 pm #

    Too many sad people’s problems on my plate at work this week. I think the beer fest is just the cure. Winning these tickets will allow me to recharge and start anew next week.

  85. Beerford July 22, 2010 at 4:32 pm #

    I do a beer “exchange” (just suggestions, of course, sending beer across state lines would be illegal) with a buddy who writes a blog out of Alabama, and I need new ideas for great Northwest brews to “tell him about”.

  86. Elle July 22, 2010 at 4:33 pm #

    I’d like to win because I went to the wrong brewery festival last weekend and I didn’t get to get in because it was TOO LATE…I’m also a novice beer drink and wouldn’t be fantastic to win a ticket to start enjoying the beer with a big bang?!?!?! (No worries, I won’t become an alcoholic).

  87. Brandy Sodapo July 22, 2010 at 4:34 pm #

    I went to Brew Festival one time. They kicked me out after I was only there for an hour, because “some blond girl with tattoos was very drunk and had been causing trouble.” I was not this girl, but they could not be dissuaded.

    I think I should get another chance to try it out, so the beer can wash away my bad memories!

  88. Darcy B July 22, 2010 at 4:35 pm #

    My husband found out this week that his company will be downsizing –he hasn’t had a good nights sleep since—This would be the perfect thing to help get his mind off things for a bit!!

  89. John July 22, 2010 at 4:36 pm #

    hitting the fest for the first time, and taking my dad to show him what Oregon beer is all about. Would love to win so we can keep our mugs full for a lot longer.

  90. Shannon Churchill July 22, 2010 at 4:39 pm #

    I would love to win! Family moving to Utah for work in a week! Super Sad…this would be a great send off!

  91. Angel July 22, 2010 at 4:39 pm #

    I think I need these tickets. Otherwise I might die. (ok, so maybe it’s not quite a life or death thing, but it would really really make my day/weekend/month/everything. The Brewers fest is such fun).

  92. Heather Reese July 22, 2010 at 4:39 pm #

    Umm… beer! Nuff said :]

  93. Vivian July 22, 2010 at 4:40 pm #

    I’d love to win because I love Oregon beer, who doesn’t?

  94. Elizabeth July 22, 2010 at 4:42 pm #

    I would really love to win this package. I’m broke right now and it is my daughter’s birthday. I would love to give this package to her and her boy friend, so they can enjoy some time together. We are all Native Oregonians, so we love beer and brewing beer!

  95. Lesley July 22, 2010 at 4:45 pm #

    Love the brewfest!! Time to get downtown again and who doesn’t love trying new beers!!

  96. Darren July 22, 2010 at 4:51 pm #

    I recently moved to Portland and I need to drink as much Oregon beer as possible, so I can catch up!

    Beer, beer, beer!

    Bacon, cheese.

    Why do I want to go to the Brewer’s Fest? I’ll give you 8 reasons:

    1) Boulevard – Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale
    2) Caldera – Hibiscus Ginger Beer
    3) Cascade Brewing – Summer Gose
    4) MacTarnahan’s – Lip Stinger

    Thank the Spaghetti Monster that the northwest fixation with “MORE HOPS” is dying out, and instead people are experimenting with sour beers.

    5) Laht Neppur – Strawberry Cream Ale
    6) Vertigo – Razz Wheat
    7) Golden Valley – Festival Kolsch
    8) Three Creeks – Creekside Kolsch

    Sit out in the sun, drinking a light, summery beer, maybe with some fruit in it? Yes please!

  99. Suzan July 22, 2010 at 4:59 pm #

    We’ve been living really lean lately – haven’t got out in months. We really love craft beer and haven’t been able to taste the latest offerings. Would love to see what’s new.

  100. Alyssa July 22, 2010 at 5:12 pm #

    I have never been to the brew fest. I’ve always wanted to go, but I have worked in the food industry for years and always have to work on weekends. BUT I have this weekend off. So…I hope I can win this package.

  101. Katie July 22, 2010 at 5:19 pm #

    I’ve been trying to explore craft brews more as I am 21 and don’t really have a good understanding of the art.

    I want beer to taste good. I don’t want it to taste like it came out of the wrong end of a horse.

    As I am in college, I am horribly broke. Otherwise, I would purchase a ticket :P

  102. Stephi July 22, 2010 at 5:20 pm #

    I would love to go and drink free beer with my friends on a summer day!

  103. Fred Dale July 22, 2010 at 5:40 pm #

    My sons 21st birthday, and this would be wonderful for us, (especially since I can only afford a card for his birthday this year) My FIRST time at this HOPE I WIN THING.
    Thanks Julian
    and congrats for coming up with this enterprising idea……

  104. Sean Stutzman July 22, 2010 at 5:40 pm #

    Why do I want to win? Why DON’T I want to win??? I am man. I drink beer. Beer good. Good beer better. Great beer betterer!!! The IPAs. The Reds. The Ryes. The fruity beers! This is my thing. I mean listen… if I don’t win… I’m still going. But if I win? Well, let’s just say I believe in Karma. If I win, I’m spreading that love.

  105. mus July 22, 2010 at 5:42 pm #

    Hope to God that i win, otherwise no beer for me and everyone knows that this will be some sort of crime

  106. Anthony July 22, 2010 at 5:42 pm #

    Free beer? Need I say more? Draw my name, plzthx!

  107. Benjamin July 22, 2010 at 5:43 pm #

    Last time I went I paid and had four beers spilled by four different a**holes – none of them hot a**holes that could repay me diversely. REDEMPTION!!!

  108. Barbara July 22, 2010 at 5:43 pm #

    Pick me………please.

  109. andy kingston July 22, 2010 at 5:44 pm #

    I am 22 and missed my chance to go last year this would be my first time to go! itd be better if it was free!!! :):):)

  110. aunt michele July 22, 2010 at 5:46 pm #

    bring the suds on! What could be better than beer and the wierdos (me being number one) in portland and a sunny afternoon in stump town!

  111. Sky July 22, 2010 at 5:48 pm #

    I’ve never won anything in my entire life!

  112. Ben Hamar July 22, 2010 at 5:49 pm #

    I hope I win your scholarship — educate me about Oregon craft beer.

  113. Don July 22, 2010 at 5:51 pm #

    Beers and beers and beers… Absolutely! Tickets would be awesome.

  114. shareze July 22, 2010 at 5:53 pm #

    I would love to win this to surprise my bf since we cant afford to attend this year and I know it would mean a lot to him

  115. Sarah July 22, 2010 at 5:54 pm #

    Never been to the Oregon Brewers Festival..I would love to experience it!

  116. Jason (@allpraxis) July 22, 2010 at 5:57 pm #

    I may have moved here to study acupuncture but living in beervana is definitely a good fringe benefit! Never liked wine as much as beer – I’m glad there are so many Oregonians who make brewing beer an art form.

  117. Ingrid July 22, 2010 at 5:58 pm #

    I want to win because I’ve never been to the brewers’s fest and I just turned 21 last month! WOOOO!

  118. Jesus July 22, 2010 at 6:01 pm #

    long awaited Portland brew event centered around my birthday. what better way to celebrate then tasting the fantastic beers from around.

  119. Max July 22, 2010 at 6:12 pm #

    Ooooo Beer.

  120. Meg July 22, 2010 at 6:21 pm #

    Long time PDX Pipeline reader, first time writer of a “PDX, pick me” post.

    Why pick me? It isn’t my birthday. I don’t have out-of-town company. I’m not moving out-of-state. I’m not new in town. I am, in fact, so happy that I have a job that even ten “furlough” days didn’t make me cry. It won’t take much to keep me happy; say a souvenir mug and $40 worth of tokens?


  121. Kyle July 22, 2010 at 6:35 pm #

    I think I may haved commenteedd already but I’m druink and can’t remember. Give me the [email protected]!!!!! wait where the fu

  122. Nicole July 22, 2010 at 6:36 pm #

    i missed brewfest last summer because i was pregnant (damn baby). this would be a great reward for responsible parenting!

  123. Scott July 22, 2010 at 6:36 pm #

    Never been before and I’ve finally lost my buzz from last weekend’s IBF!

  124. Tracy Blodgett July 22, 2010 at 6:37 pm #

    All expense paid trip to the Brew Fest…did I just win the lottery? And to think, this year I had planned on not losing my pants again…so be it. Let the beer Gods shower me with frothy goodness, let the smiles run for miles, and if you find my pants, you may keep them! A prost, to new beginnings and happy endings! Hello Oregon Brew Fest, my name is Tracy and its good to see you again!

  125. stephen July 22, 2010 at 6:43 pm #

    Having a baby eight months ago has supremely limited the amount my wife and I are able to go out. This would be a huge bonus for us!

  126. Bianka July 22, 2010 at 6:46 pm #

    Would love to win tickets I have a friend coming from far away just for this festival… want him to taste it all!

  127. Darren July 22, 2010 at 6:46 pm #

    I’m dumping out 11 gallons of homebrew due to a bad yeast strain and could use some tokens to cheer me up.

  128. Ashleigh July 22, 2010 at 6:51 pm #

    I’ll be at the Brew Fest on Saturday, taking my boyfriend with me (it’ll be his first time). It would be nice to win the $50 package though, let us save our money and spend it on something a little more practical, like our bills, haha!

  129. Libby Hutter July 22, 2010 at 6:56 pm #

    Dear Julian,

    I’ve never been to the Oregon Brewer’s Fest and I may be out of a job soon. I love beer, I brew beer, and I have a goal to try all of the breweries in Oregon. I would appreciate these tickets so much. Please pick me!

  130. Kalong July 22, 2010 at 7:27 pm #

    Dearest Julian,
    I would love to win a $50 package for Brew Fest, because I won’t be able to drink that much, which means I’ll have to bring friends to come help me, which means Brew Fest will be just that much funner!!

  131. Mary July 22, 2010 at 7:55 pm #

    I would like to win this because I am already planning on going to the Brewfest but I’m totally broke and this would really help me out, beer drinking-wise :)

  132. Pritch July 22, 2010 at 8:02 pm #

    Hoping I can grab this package because I love how tokens become actual currency every brew fest weekend!

  133. Mike July 22, 2010 at 8:14 pm #

    I should be the receiver of the $50 package to beerfest because of a very serious condition I have. I have an extremely rare form of immune deficiency that only subsides when I consume a multitude of different Oregon craft beers in the same day. This has been an expensive and exhaustive treatment and a trip to Beerfest would be a nice change that would allow a jump in my quality of life. Thank you.

  134. Bret July 22, 2010 at 8:34 pm #

    I want to win because I like beer.

  135. Justin July 22, 2010 at 8:44 pm #

    I’d love to win because nothing is a better combo than warm weather and craft beer! We gotta take advantage while it’s here!

  136. Peter Koonce July 22, 2010 at 9:01 pm #

    I have often volunteered at the Brewfest and it is a unique experience. This year should be great weather and awesome beers.

  137. Jerry B July 22, 2010 at 9:06 pm #

    So I found somebody to cover my shift early. I’m leaving Seattle at 6am driving to Olympia and meeting some friends at the train station. Hopping aboard the Amtrak and PDX bound we will go. Our final destination is the Oregon Brewers Festival. Winning the $50 package will help us spend the weekend there drinking some great beer listen to some great music and meet some great friends. Draw Me :)

  138. mark fields July 22, 2010 at 9:06 pm #

    I would love to try lots of local beers and this prize would be SUPERFINE! And it’s my birthday Thursday!!!

  139. morgan July 22, 2010 at 9:29 pm #

    I would like to go to brewers fest and take my sister, so I can prove to her that Portland beer is sooo much better than anything they make in san diego!

  140. Tina July 22, 2010 at 9:48 pm #

    I’d love to win this ticket package because I missed out on all the great beer fests last summer because I was pregnant! Now that baby is here and the brew fests are here we are broke. Mama wants to get her drink on!

  141. free July 22, 2010 at 10:06 pm #

    it’s funny having to give a reason why you want to win beer in portland. i mean, i live here, right? that said, this one would be particularly sweet because i have family visiting and i would like to share local beers with them.

  142. Matt July 22, 2010 at 10:08 pm #

    What is not to love about brewfest? Sunshine, friends and beer… Doesn’t get much better!

  143. Bonnie July 22, 2010 at 10:30 pm #

    Please pick me! It’s my birthday on weds!! It would be amazing to win something.

  144. Kelli July 22, 2010 at 10:54 pm #

    Tell me how many beers are being featured at the Brewers Fest and I will tell you how many reasons I have to want to win the BrewFest package and go

  145. Cynthia July 22, 2010 at 10:54 pm #

    I work for beer…

  146. Erin Slusser July 22, 2010 at 11:12 pm #

    This is an annual event that is one of my favorites. It is always the setting of one of my best friend’s belated birthday celebrations. It would be great to add a little birthday gift to this shin dig!

  147. Stu July 22, 2010 at 11:12 pm #

    Pick me because my friends like to drink at the brewers festival.

  148. rebecca russo July 22, 2010 at 11:13 pm #

    Holy crap that’s a lot of entries! It will be a BEER miracle if I win. But, I will honor the Beer gods and drink tons of beer. Party on!

    BEER ME!

  149. Lindsey July 22, 2010 at 11:43 pm #

    Well, because I’ve lived in Portland now for almost 2 years and have never been to a brew fest here…ridiculous! I hang my head in shame.

  150. daVe July 23, 2010 at 12:48 am #

    i’ve got a friend in town from d.c., here through sunday. she’s considering moving here, and what better way to convince her than show her the brewers festival!!!

  151. bashabashabashamusic July 23, 2010 at 7:16 am #

    I would love the chance to win this package. Thanks PDX Pipeline for doing these awesome giveaways. I hope I can win this time!! Fingers crossed for that awesome beer! Thanks again Pipeline.

  152. Michelle July 23, 2010 at 7:31 am #

    Who wouldn’t want to win the tickets… great weather, relaxing, spending time with friends, and free beer. That is how I like my summer!

  153. Thomas castell July 23, 2010 at 8:13 am #

    I hope your ready for the heat! I could use some cold beer to ccol down after my shift. We will be registering voters for the Progressive Party of
    Oregon. I hope all your wishes for the year soon come!
    Peace Love

  154. Mike July 23, 2010 at 8:47 am #

    I would love to attend with my wife. We are in great need of a nice break from our little ones whom we love dearly. It would be a great surprise for her as well if we win the tickets!

  155. Hope July 23, 2010 at 8:47 am #

    What a fun way to spend the hot weekend coming up!

  156. Heidi July 23, 2010 at 8:49 am #

    In definite need of this:) Mom of a 2 year old and would love to enjoy a couple hours to relax and drink some awesome beer.

  157. Jeff Boyer July 23, 2010 at 9:15 am #

    I’m new to the Portland area, a huge Oregon Craft Beer fan, and next week is my 57th birthday.. What a great gift from you to allow my wife and I to attend this event.. I can’t wait to hear from you!

  158. Wallace July 23, 2010 at 9:19 am #

    I need this prize, with this heat my 2 month old daughter and kitten will not be able to sleep………..

    If I win I will drink lots of the countries best craft beer and then nurse said kitten and infant with beer infused man breast milk and send them into a slumber delirium.


  159. Stacey July 23, 2010 at 9:24 am #

    I love beer but have never been to a beer festival. Just doesn’t seem quite right!

  160. Krista July 23, 2010 at 10:04 am #

    We’re going to Portland for my friend’s bachelorette party weekend and this would just be icing on top of the cake for the festivities!

  161. Edward July 23, 2010 at 10:09 am #

    My 21st birthday is on Sunday, the last day of the brewer’s festival. As someone who has covertly loved beer for the last several years, I can’t wait to get to the brewers fest and become a “legit” beer fan! I’m so excited, in fact, that I’ve organized my birthday party so we spend the whole afternoon at the brew fest and this prize package would be a great way to celebrate the day!

  162. Jenn C. July 23, 2010 at 10:45 am #

    I can’t think of anything that would be yummier to win! :D

  163. Mego July 23, 2010 at 11:16 am #

    I love Oregon beer, hot summer days, groups of friends, lazy afternoons, loud laughter and general tomfoolery. Oregon Brewers Festival is right up my alley!

  164. jacob July 23, 2010 at 11:46 am #

    broke like an un-funny joke, but a $50 brewfest prize would make it a little bit funnier.

  165. skye July 23, 2010 at 12:11 pm #

    Grandma is in town and we need to show her a good time!

  166. Soco July 23, 2010 at 12:34 pm #

    The weather is perfect to be downtown enjoying our beautiful city and some of the Summer’s tastiest brews. thanks

  167. Penny July 21, 2011 at 10:09 am #

    Prost! Cheers! Kampai! Salute! Please let me do all these things this weekend!

  168. Veronica July 25, 2011 at 9:13 am #

    I would really like to go to brew fest; one because I have never been and most importantly midterms are this week and its very rare that I get to go any where, do to working full time and going to school full-time. Thank you, for your consideration.

  169. Lyzz Rooney July 28, 2011 at 1:59 pm #

    I’m so excited about the Brewers Festival…REALLY hope / looking forward to going!!! Please make that happen for a mom of two small people who will NOT be attending !!
