Win a Pair of Tix to Connecticut on Tap Beer Festival

25 Aug


While we wish that we could give away tickets to all the people that entered, we had to pick just one winner for the 2 GA tickets.  So, without further ado…the winner chosen by random number generator is (commercial break…………..) Eric Hoover!  Congrats man, guess building that deck was worth it, huh? :) 

As we get closer to September, you might notice something:  the Beer Festival to Happiness ratio begins to grow. Case in point:  the 1st annual Connecticut on Tap beer festival that’s hitting Hat City on 9/13 from 3-6. On that fine day, CT on Tap will be pouring out over 120 different craft brews, with a bunch of that total coming from CT breweries. Tickets for GA are $35 or $55 for VIP, but we’ve got the hook up for you thanks to i95 Rock and Townsquare Media Danbury.

All you gotta do is tell us why you’ve earned yourself some free drinks. New boss? Kids teething? Long week? iPhone break for the 4th time this week? Just let us know by commenting on here, on our original Facebook post, or by tweeting out your answer by using #CTonTapTix and @OmNomCT. The contest starts now and goes until 8/28 at 5 pm.  At that time we’ll pick one random person to win a pair of GA tix.

Check out the rest of the info from our original post a few weeks ago:

    I deserve these tickets because I’m a loyal omnomivore. It’s been a long hot summer and I can’t think of a better way to start fall than sampling beers with good friends.
