    Help a guy out?

  5. Shane Dickson April 7, 2014 at 5:36 pm #

    Just moved out to Woodburn, so this is a great opportunity to enjoy some of the local brewers, which in my humble opinion is some of the best in the world. I’ve also heard great things from friends so I know I’ll have some company, so everyone will have festive spirits and a joyous good time. Thanks so much for the chance!

    Oh how much I will NEED this by the end of this month.

  22. Erictheguy April 8, 2014 at 11:12 am #

    So… here we are again… you, with your beautiful eyes (*eyes means tickets*)… me, with my insatiable thirst for drinking A LOT, while pretending that I am just an avid horticulturist. Where does that leave us, PDX Pipeline?!? Well, it’s in your court… this could be a wonderful experience all around… OR, this could be another sad day for both of us… I just need what your offering here, baby!! And, I care about you… I don’t want to see you cry your eyes (*again, eyes means tickets*) out and see them leak all over one of these abject strangers, when we can fulfill each other and be so very happy!

    It’s your choice, of course, and I’ll love you either way. But, if you don’t choose me, just know that everytime I see an animal corpse with it’s eyes pecked out, I’ll only be reminded of you and what we could’ve had… :( or :) (your call!)

  23. Jon April 8, 2014 at 11:28 am #

    I would really enjoy tilting some mugs and guzzling some beer, cider, and mead. Thanks PDX pipeline

    Jesus has risen!!! Miracles exist and I am winning tickets to brewfest to enjoy like being in heaven, spring, beautiful weather and sampling the nectars of various gods in Silverton garden paradise.
    And use the 90 dollars to buy growlers and souvenirs to make of these festival a long lasting memorable event.

    I would really love to win tickets. I went a few years ago with my 2 cousins abs we had a blast. I don’t see my cousins often and since having my first baby I don’t get out much myself. I think this would be a great way to get together with my cousins again and be a great birthday present as one of my cousins birthday is on the 29th. Thank you for the chance to win!

    Looks like the perfect way to be introduced to the Portland Beer scene. As a whiskey drinker I never give beer a chance, a beer fest would be the perfect opportunity for me to check out all the deliciousness the pacnw has to offer.
