    I’ll be there! Free tickets would be great!

  2. Chris January 9, 2012 at 10:18 am #

    I am a NW beer geek and rarely get a chance to go to fests but hope to go to this one.

  3. Moto January 9, 2012 at 10:35 am #

    GOOD beer is an acknowledgement of the present, a remembrance of things past and a hope for the future. Cheers!

  4. Polly January 9, 2012 at 11:16 am #

    My mom is flying in for the weekend from California and loves this stuff. It would be great to show her a fun time and introduce her to some great Oregonian beers. Whoop Whoop!

  5. Jovah January 9, 2012 at 11:41 am #

    This would be a fun event to attend for my girlfriend and I. I love Portland microbrews, but know I have barely scratched the surface. I’m also a beginner home brewer, and want to try making hard cider and even Mead next!

  6. candyce January 9, 2012 at 12:32 pm #

    Beer!!! Food!!! Yes, please :)

  7. Kimberly P January 9, 2012 at 1:22 pm #

    Sounds like a fun time! Please and thanks!

  8. Katelyn January 9, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

    I’m still new to Portland, and looking forward to experiencing all that this beautiful city has too offer.

  9. Julia January 9, 2012 at 4:16 pm #

    Sounds like a blast. Would love free tickets, but considering the dozens of free ticket posts I’ve responded to without winning a single free ticket, I’m not getting my hopes up.

  10. Michael January 9, 2012 at 7:08 pm #

    Beer? Where’s the line start?

  11. Jessica January 9, 2012 at 7:09 pm #

    Yes please! Beer- food- cool people? Count me in!

  12. Dan January 9, 2012 at 7:12 pm #

    I’d be floored to win tickets to the 2012 Buckman-Kerns brewfest! My mom is in town this weekend for her 60th birthday from Spokane and she loves beer and would love to go to East Burn. Please save me, my girlfriend, brother and sister, and mom and dad from a weekend of not drinking awesome selections of beers by sampling these beers! Plus, I’d move into poll position for best son status. Thanks in advance!

  13. Chris January 9, 2012 at 8:51 pm #

    Can’t wait to try some local beers, many of which I haven’t had yet. My wife and I are growing enthusiasts of micro brews but need more experience… winning tickets would be just what we need!

  14. Gerry January 9, 2012 at 8:54 pm #

    My girlfriend are new to Portland… and broke. We want to explore our new city more and don’t want to let lack of cash stop us. Free tickets would be sweet!

    We love Portland way better than Chicago (our home town).
    We love beer.
    We need friends.

  15. Noelle January 9, 2012 at 9:18 pm #

    And my new romanace with microbrews continues. As a newbie to the great NW, I don’t think there’s anyone out there who wants to learn and love beer as much as my husband and I!

  16. pamela Ostrander January 10, 2012 at 7:39 am #

    Please I am soooo thirsty and hungry!!!!! A few samples of fine Northwest Beer will take care of my thirst and I have heard there’s a pork chop in every pint!!!

  17. Christina January 10, 2012 at 9:06 am #

    I just moved to the neighborhood and I haven’t been to a brew festival before. Oh, pick me! Pick me!

  18. monica burnett January 10, 2012 at 12:06 pm #

    sounds like my kind of event. I’d love to get my drink on

  19. Kris January 10, 2012 at 12:43 pm #

    Why I’d like to attend? Beer fests are always good time and a small, focused one like this should be even better.

  20. Eric T. January 10, 2012 at 6:57 pm #

    I wanna go

  21. Topher January 10, 2012 at 10:02 pm #

    I would love to go.. This sounds like so much fun!

  22. Frank W. January 11, 2012 at 9:50 am #

    I went last year and had a blast. Loved to learn about brand new breweries (Natian and Burnside) that are well established in the meantime.

  23. Ariana January 11, 2012 at 10:50 am #

    Count me in!!!

  24. Angie G January 11, 2012 at 11:07 am #

    Just moved here from Wisconsin and have yet to determine if Portland’s beer scene is better than brew city (Milwaukee) … maybe this event will help me decide!

  25. Erika W January 11, 2012 at 1:35 pm #

    This would be perfect! My long distance boyfriend is back in town this weekend. And with gas prices as they are, I’m ALWAYS looking for cheap entertainment (though after a few drinks, I’m sure we will buy a few more!):

    He’s a boy from the country who grew up on Busch, Ranier, and PBR. I’m a suburban girl who’d rather throw down ambers, porters and stouts. So, winning these tickets would give me an opportunity to share some of the finer beers in life with my eastern Washington-residing boyfriend, and help make his decision to move west of the Cascades a little easier! Heck, I might even find an IPA that I like!

    Fingers crossed: My man needs to become better acquainted and fall in love with Portland. C’mon! It’s BEERVANA!

  26. Leonard January 11, 2012 at 7:43 pm #

    I’ve not been to this beer fest!

  27. Emily Anne :) January 11, 2012 at 8:10 pm #

    I love beer and I live in the neighborhood and would LOVE to explore the community a little via beer, food and fun :)

  28. Roseann January 12, 2012 at 12:13 am #

    Need proof that PDX beer scene is better than the one I just left in Chicago.

  29. kay January 12, 2012 at 2:00 am #

    I have a new years goal to explore as many Oregon breweries as possible, and this would get me a great start!

  30. jamie stewart January 12, 2012 at 11:09 am #

    Man…I LOVE beer…

  31. Kristin January 12, 2012 at 11:14 am #

    Cerveza!!! Por favor!!!

  32. April January 12, 2012 at 11:48 am #

    I’ve never actually been to a beer festival before.

  33. Ari January 12, 2012 at 12:07 pm #

    I would love to be able to surprise my partner with tickets to this (and since I need to be careful about what I spend, free would be awesome)!

  34. Grays we January 12, 2012 at 12:51 pm #

    Belated Christmas present

  35. Shannon January 12, 2012 at 1:12 pm #

  36. Rachael January 12, 2012 at 2:11 pm #

    At midnight it will be my birthday! Please make my birthday dreams come true.

  37. Carly January 12, 2012 at 2:47 pm #

    Tastes so good when it touches the lips!

  38. Teresa January 12, 2012 at 3:15 pm #

    I would love to win so that I can introduce some great local beers to a few friends that are visiting from Europe this week!

  39. Chris P January 12, 2012 at 3:18 pm #

    I would love to go. My wife and I need a break from unpacking.

  40. Nicole January 12, 2012 at 3:19 pm #

    My husband and I would love a date that allows us to experience the local breweries. We haven’t had time to hit them all! This event will make it easy!

  41. Sarah January 12, 2012 at 3:20 pm #

    My husband is just starting to homebrew and he would love to go to a brewfest and talk to the brewers.

  42. Jason January 12, 2012 at 3:22 pm #

    This sounds like a great event. It’s nice to see a brewfest during this time of year that takes place indoors. Dreaming of IPA now…

  43. Jessie January 12, 2012 at 3:23 pm #

    East burn is my favorite place to drink beer in this city and I love these breweries! Fate? I think so!

  44. Lauren January 12, 2012 at 3:23 pm #

    My boyfriend and I not only love East Burn, but we also love beer, and in particular love Beer Festivals. And the only thing better than going to a beer festival is getting free tickets to said beer festival :)

  45. Yasmine January 12, 2012 at 3:23 pm #

    After the week I’ve had…I need a good beer!

  46. jackie January 12, 2012 at 3:24 pm #

    I am on a never-ending quest to find the ULTIMATE beer. I have found many so far, but always looking for more!!! Portland is the beer capital of this country, that’s why I moved here!!! It would be great to attend this and further my explorations in the world of beers…

  47. Oliver January 12, 2012 at 3:24 pm #

    I would give anything to get into this so I won’t be forced to drink Steele Reserve this weekend.

  48. Lauren January 12, 2012 at 3:25 pm #

    Free local beer? YEZ PLEASE.

  49. Dom January 12, 2012 at 3:25 pm #

    Getting drunk on a Sunday night, hangover for Monday at work…sign me up!!! ha ha ha :)

  50. Brendan Smith January 12, 2012 at 3:26 pm #

    I live in the SE and love our local breweries. It would be awesome to win tickets to attend this great event. I might have to go either way.

  51. Maria January 12, 2012 at 3:26 pm #

    Would love to take the husband out, our kids are with their grandparents that day!!!!!

  52. Josh C January 12, 2012 at 3:31 pm #

  57. Katie January 12, 2012 at 3:40 pm #

    My boyfriend and I have been on austerity measures for a while now, due to bills from hospital stays and helping out family during the holidays. Getting treated to a great date at the festival would be appreciated so much!

  58. CC January 12, 2012 at 3:45 pm #

  64. Heidi January 12, 2012 at 4:17 pm #

    SYMPTOM: Beer is crystal-clear.
    FAULT: It’s water. Somebody is trying to sober you up.
    ACTION: Punch him.

  65. jwgrant January 12, 2012 at 4:22 pm #

    I NEVER steer clear of beer!

  66. Meghan January 12, 2012 at 4:23 pm #

    I love beer. I have no money. I need charity beer now.

  67. Vivian January 12, 2012 at 4:28 pm #

    Seeing as my new years resolution was not to change a goddamn thing, this would be perfect for continuing the January debauchery.

  68. roy January 12, 2012 at 4:40 pm #

    I recently moved to the Portland area and have been introduced to the massive sytles ofbees. What better way t appreciate beer than ataBrewfest and what better way to appreciate a brewfest than have it be free.

  69. Nikki January 12, 2012 at 4:47 pm #

    BEER! what else is there to say

    just returned from san antonio, and while there are a couple of good microbreweries there (there actually are only two), i’ve been in need of re-acclimating to my portland environs. H-E-L-P M-E!!!

  74. Efrain January 12, 2012 at 5:42 pm #

    Fact: My girlfriend recently discovered she likes sour beers, which is awesome because she otherwise only likes lagers and witbiers.
    Secondary fact: My girlfriend does not frequent beer fests with me due to the preceding fact.
    Ultimate fact: By winning these free tickets, I will be able to take her to a beer festival where we can both enjoy beer we like and she can be introduced to other brewers that cater to her taste.

  75. Rob January 12, 2012 at 6:34 pm #

    The time is coming for our baby to arrive. I need very much to experience my last beer fest before daddy duty ensues!! Our baby will be much happier knowing that daddy enjoyed some relaxing local pints in an effort to relax & mentally prepare for life as parent.

  82. AllyHops January 12, 2012 at 9:52 pm #

  99. Heidi January 13, 2012 at 10:04 am #

    Being a connoisseur of hand crafted brews as well as recently taking up the hobby of brewing as my own, it is great to be able to talk and brag about what other local creations are on the market. Unique brews and the community surrounding beer appreciation are among the things that I most admire about Portland.

  100. arni January 13, 2012 at 11:23 am #

    I’d love to be at Eastburn drinking beer this weekend!
