UPDATE: We had plenty of great entries, but we only have one winner (sorry): gosiajaros on Instagram. Thanks for entering, everyone!
Looking for something awesome to do to kick off the end of the year and the start of the December holiday season? Of course you are! Well, get your arse down to the 2nd Annual Beer Conn on 12/12 for two sessions of ridiculously awesome beer. Like last year, Beer Conn is being held indoors at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport and you can either check out Session 1 from 12:30-4 or Session 2 from 5:30-9. Tickets are just $35 as long as you buy tix in advance, but increase to $45 if you’re disorganized or lazy and buy them the day of.
But, maybe the holidays are a bit slim for ya, so we’re willing to work with ya for a special gift. As one of the sponsors for Beer Conn, we’re happy to give away a pair of tix courtesy of Starfish Junction, the awesome organizers. To enter, just let us know what your perfect cold-weather beer is. Ours? Thimble Island Coffee Stout! You can enter here, on our FB post, or on our Instagram post. The contest starts NOW and goes until Friday (12/4) at 1 pm. From there, we’ll update this post with the winner and will also announce via social media.
Now, onto the reasons to attend:
1) Kickass representation of CT beer!
2) Over 50 different breweries on hand! (See list down below)
3) Over 100 different brews to try!
4) Seeing and talking to all the great reps and brewers!
5) Checking out all the ugly Christmas sweaters and Santa/Naughty Elf costumes!
6) Buy some great goods and stocking stuffers.
So, hopefully you can make this year’s event. We really had a great time last year, lines were short, and we even got to taste some great brews that we had never tried before. But, as great as the beer was, it was just as good to meet and talk with fellow beer-lovers.
