    Pick me please!

  2. Candy Cain October 17, 2012 at 4:51 pm #

    Looks like a ton of fun. Plus I already have a pretty sexy costume. The real question is…Why wouldn’t I want to go.

  3. wallace October 17, 2012 at 4:58 pm #

    Please . . . . . . . Me Me Me!

    3 reasons –

    1. the 26th is my birthday

    2. My wife would rather go to a neighborhood party and save the cover charge.

    3. I have a very sexy costume


  4. Roxy October 17, 2012 at 4:59 pm #

  5. Sam October 17, 2012 at 5:12 pm #

    I’d love to win because I have been looking forward to attending this for a while now! Halloween is my favorite time of the year and I love making the absolute most of it. Unfortunately, after losing my job and being unemployed for four months, I am not able to afford to buy the tickets anymore. :( Therefore, I’d be ECSATIC if I won! That and I’ve never won anything before :-p

  6. Luke October 17, 2012 at 5:37 pm #

    Beer, Bands, Babes! What a good combo!

  7. Kimberly October 17, 2012 at 5:58 pm #

  8. Tiara October 17, 2012 at 6:20 pm #

    Please pick me! I would love to be chosen because I just moved to Portland and would like to get to know the people and beer of this fine city. What better place than a Halloween party off Burnside?

  9. Sarah B October 17, 2012 at 6:24 pm #

    Surfer shark attack guy and his lady sexy Betty Boop are looking to attend this “HOPPY” event!

    I love trying different beers and dancing the night away so this sounds like a must for me.

    Getting thirsty already so I hope to see everyone there! Happy Halloween to all and have a safe night!

  18. Jenna October 18, 2012 at 12:59 pm #

    Halloween has always sucked so this sounds like the best combo things to make an awesome Halloween.

  19. Kacey October 18, 2012 at 1:10 pm #

    The feathers will be flying

  22. Bryan October 18, 2012 at 3:14 pm #

    Count me in!

  23. Greg October 18, 2012 at 3:16 pm #

    I went to this last year and it was great. The beer was truly awesome and I loved the dancers. This event is the anniversary my girlfriend and I celebrate, and I can’t wait to go again (this time bringing about half a dozen friends).

  24. Munny October 18, 2012 at 3:20 pm #

    i’ve enjoyed burnside’s beers at the home roost before, but never while wearing fangs.

  25. Erik H October 18, 2012 at 3:26 pm #

    craft beer and craftier costumes – what could be better? Oh yeah – go go girlz!

  26. Chezz October 18, 2012 at 3:28 pm #

    I can put the $20 toward costume supplies if I win the tickets….

  27. Ryn October 18, 2012 at 3:29 pm #

    Great beer, lively bands, and the finest burlesque this side of the Mississippi? Sign me up!

  28. Kathrin October 18, 2012 at 3:31 pm #

    THIS sounds like the event of the season. I want to go!

  29. Rachel October 18, 2012 at 3:32 pm #

    My friends and I love Halloween and love beer, so what could be more perfect than this event?! Plus, I’m the only one I know who NEVER WINS TICKETS on PDX Pipeline! I’d love to go to NOTLA.

  30. Marianne October 18, 2012 at 3:35 pm #

    Everything about this sounds awesome! I would love to go and show off my kickass costume!

  31. Carina October 18, 2012 at 3:49 pm #

    Those beers sound amazing! Plus, I live conveniently within stumbling, er, walking distance, so I can try them all without worrying about driving or biking home afterwards.

  32. Jen October 18, 2012 at 3:55 pm #

    I’d love to go sample the Almond Joy now. YUM! But I would also enjoy it on the 26th. Sounds like a great party.

  33. Ryan Pdx October 18, 2012 at 4:06 pm #

    Halloween without beer? Now that’s scary.

  34. Lauren October 18, 2012 at 4:09 pm #

    I want tickets b/c we’ll have people visiting from Kansas and they need to know how Portland really is :)

  35. Gretchen October 18, 2012 at 4:15 pm #

    I would love to go to this. I love all the brewers involved and it’s mere days before my birthday. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate!

  36. TJ October 18, 2012 at 4:25 pm #

    Costumes and beer… who’da thought to combine those two things..

  37. Lota October 18, 2012 at 4:48 pm #

    Because I’m pregnant and can enjoy the music and show while I watch everyone else get sloshed and sloppy.

  38. Mary Guptill October 18, 2012 at 5:03 pm #

    I would like to go because beer is delicious.

  39. Bret October 18, 2012 at 5:12 pm #

    I would also like to go because beer is delicious. :P

  40. Skye Blue October 18, 2012 at 5:22 pm #

    I’m going as little red riding hood. That is, if you give me tickets.

  41. matt folsom October 18, 2012 at 5:30 pm #

    I really need something to do this year! I didnt even celebrate last year…

  42. Anthony October 18, 2012 at 5:38 pm #

    I’ve missed this the last 3 years for stupid reasons. Please help me to make it there this year finally! (if for no other reason than to try the incredible sounding Almond Joy beer)

  43. [email protected] October 18, 2012 at 5:38 pm #

    my kind of halloween, reminds me of home: drunk semi-naked people dancing around with fire, minus the incestuousness and trailer-park setting.

  44. Emmakat October 18, 2012 at 5:40 pm #

    I would like to go see go-go dancers.

  45. Peter October 18, 2012 at 6:38 pm #

    I’ve got a great bearded lady costume!

  46. steadyale October 18, 2012 at 6:56 pm #

    ale is alive, assuming an active yeast.

    i pulled a booger out of my nose. with my finger!

  47. Maya October 18, 2012 at 7:57 pm #

    Oh people…You know the real reason we want to go is to see what the bartenders are sporting…Really…you know it is true. Could Ryan actually be dressed in a penguin outfit? Is Molly actually doing the dancing? Seriously!!?

  48. Brittany October 18, 2012 at 8:59 pm #

    I haven’t been to a brewfest in sooo long! I would love to go to this one.

  49. Anya October 19, 2012 at 9:15 am #

    I have the perfect costume and need somewhere to wear it! Plus, Burnside Brewing Co. is my and my boyfriends favorite brewery! And who wouldn’t want to see sexy dancers perform?!

    Also..the money I would save from the cost of the tickets would mean I’d be able to afford to buy more beer and food at the event!! :-D So, I’d LOVE to win!!!!!!

  50. Tajsha October 19, 2012 at 10:54 am #

    I would love to win tickets to this party! My birthday is Oct 24th and we can’t afford to do anything :( medical bills hit us hard this month!

    So this would be an EPIC birthday present!
    PS I’m turning 39… last year to really party before I turn 40!!

  51. Bethany October 19, 2012 at 11:50 am #

    I will probably get drunk, have a marvelous time, and may flash people. Please give me the free tickets!

  52. Bobby G October 19, 2012 at 12:04 pm #

    Great Beer topped with amazing unique brews, go go dancers, festive atmosphere… This is why WE MOVED TO PORTLAND!!! (less than a 1/2 mile from you guys) Plus, we got Day of the Dead costumes ready to Rock & Roll!

  53. christian October 19, 2012 at 1:35 pm #

    BURNSIDE BEER. Nuff said.
    Besides as a transplant from KC I would love to see how they compare to my beloved Boulevard Brewing Co.

    And…ya know…looking at skimpy halloween costumes would be nice.

  54. J Davis October 19, 2012 at 2:04 pm #

    I would like to go not just for burnside brewery, but for the Seasonal Guest brews as well! Last year’s featured co.’s really took charge, and I’m looking forward to tasting these >:3

    Also, to see live music AND go-go dancers AND costume contests is just the icing on the cake!

  55. Jessica October 19, 2012 at 2:24 pm #

    I wanna win cuz i gotsta work on halloween and i need to get out the house. Beer is good, burlesque is better, and gogo dancers sound pretty alright too.

  56. seth francis October 19, 2012 at 2:34 pm #

    Wow, this sounds amazing!! After 3 years of living in Portland I have yet to go to a great Halloween party. This party has it all, great beer, great music, sexy dancers, the whole package, please let me be the one to take full advantage. I promise to dance my ass off up front until I am sweaty and laughing and screaming “thank you pdx pipeline!!”

  57. Alanna October 19, 2012 at 4:38 pm #

    Me please!

  58. Sarah October 19, 2012 at 4:42 pm #

    I’d like to go because my boyfriend is going on a fun road trip all week while I have to work, and I’m jealous. If I win tickets to this, then HE’LL be jealous! Heh heh heh.

  59. Danielle October 20, 2012 at 11:37 am #

  63. mike brett October 21, 2012 at 5:28 pm #

    The 26th is my birthday and I can’t think of a better way to ring in the new year than with costumes, beer, and music. Can’t wait!!

  64. Amy October 21, 2012 at 8:34 pm #

    Beer me puh-leaz! Pick me because I’m a woman and I love beer. Yeah, I played the gender card.

  66. Lars October 22, 2012 at 1:15 pm #

  67. Clayng October 22, 2012 at 1:45 pm #

    It would be a great night for me and a friend!

  68. Kelsey October 22, 2012 at 2:44 pm #

    I’ll be home in Portland only for the weekend and I want to go to the best party in town!

  69. sally October 22, 2012 at 5:44 pm #

    Sounds like the only place to sample uber-specialty autumn beers on tap! Bonus for Boy Eats Drum Machine and dancing in my cabaret costume alongside the dancers!

  70. Naner October 22, 2012 at 8:18 pm #

    I’m gluten free (not for the fad) and it’d be awesome to sample a new cider! Also, would love to see some burlesque…

  71. Alex October 23, 2012 at 1:06 am #

    because this sounds awesome

  72. Don October 23, 2012 at 6:20 pm #

  76. Christy October 24, 2012 at 6:19 pm #

    A long night of drinking craft ales would put me in perfect form for the zombie walk the next morning, I’m in.

  77. Peter October 25, 2012 at 2:50 pm #


  78. Ben October 25, 2012 at 4:06 pm #

    There is not a single word here that is not awesome. I need some more awesome in my life.

  79. don October 25, 2012 at 8:13 pm #

    love the beers. like to do some living with them on this night,.

  80. Sean M. Dooley October 25, 2012 at 10:18 pm #

    I have a giant, 8 ft-something robot suit powered by an octopus I want to show off. Lights, sounds, and threats to humankind. Also, I want to test a tube that lets me drink beers with one of my robot fingers. I imagine terrorizing patrons and causing chaos for most of the event…but I spent all my money making the costume. It would be pretty great to go with my dead sea captain girlfriend and rustle up some scares.

  81. ptermclean October 26, 2012 at 11:02 am #

    Friend just had a break-up. Taking him out. This would be dope, cheers!
