Firestone Walker’s annual Invitational Beer Festival is a gathering of the most innovative, progressive brewers in the world along with the few hundred lucky beer enthusiasts who were able to buy tickets to the event before it sold out a mere 22 minutes after the tickets were released. That’s like, Bon Jovi sell-out speed.
Turns out, there are still four tickets left to be had, if you are deemed “The Ultimate Beer Geek” by the staff of Firestone Walker.
All you have to do is upload a vid to youtube that proves your Beer Geekiness. That’s it. No crazy parameters, just be creative in your geekdom. Own it. Wallow in it. This could be your chance to finally dress up like a lion and fight a bear…while talking about the nuances of Brettanomyces yeast.
If you win, you’ll get the four VIP tickets to the fest, a brewery tour and tasting with owner David Walker (“the Lion”), a free place to stay, and $100 to spend in the taproom restaurant. Not a bad prize for outing yourself as the true beer geek that you are.
The contest ends April 15 and the festival is in May. Check out the official guidelines and start planning your beer geek biopic.
