Win Free Tickets to the Toronto Festival of Beer

Ever heard of the Toronto Festival of Beer? One of Canada's most celebrated beer events at Toronto's Historic Fort York.

Well, I happen to have two tickets to giveaway for the opening night (Thursday August 7th) and I thought that this would be a good time for a small contest. Are you interested?

Here's what I'm looking for:
A short profile of your favourite local pub or your favourite craft beer or any story involving the two. The winning entry will not only get the two tickets, but they'll also get their submission posted on this blog.

Some rules will have to apply though.
1. The pub and/or craft beer submission must have a Canadian content;
2. Please keep it to less than 800 words;
3. Winner must be of legal drinking age to win the contest (duh!); and
4. Agree to have a beer with me at the festival

So here are some details for the Thursday night:

99.9 MIXFM presents the Bowmans Ball, featuring The English Beat live on Thursday August 7, 2008.
Online prices (GST incl.)*:$40
Gate prices (GST incl.)**:$50

The festival is entering its 14th year and over 30,000 people attended last year's event. You can sample more than 250 brands of beer produced by small breweries, regional breweries and big breweries while indulging in bbq'd food, music, and much more. This is a great way to get tickets to the festival if you've never been.

So, if you're interested in participating, shoot me an email ( with your submission, your name and contact information by no later than Thursday July 31st. The winner will be announced Friday August 1st.

This will be the first ever contest / giveaway that I have done on this blog, but it certainly won't be the last.
