2011 Hood River Hops Fest Giveaway

Hood River Hops Fest

One of the places that we visit often is Hood River, OR.  For those of us living in Portland it’s a great place to get away too. It’s only an hour away, they have hiking, biking, breweries, wineries, the Fruit loop and great places to eat as well. They even have some pretty great hotel accommodations.

The other beautiful thing about Hood River is you can drive out and back in a day. It’s that close. So if you can’t stay the night, just go for the event.

On Saturday, October 1 they are having the Hood River Hops fest. I am giving away 2 tickets for this event. Each ticket will have give you ::

  • Admission
  • One Mug
  • Four Tokens

They are hoping to have close to 40 beers on tap for sampling at this event. Many of the beers that they will pour will be less than a week in the keg.

Here’s multiple ways you can enter to win ::

  • Go to Vacation Thrills Facebook page and “like” it
  • Go to Eating My Way Thru Portland and “like” it too – we go there often and I have a reviewed a few restaurants.
  • Sign up for newsletters at each of these sites. (1 entry per site.)
  • Leave a comment here about your favorite beer and tell me what other entries you did.

You will get one entry for each thing you do upping your chances of winning. Winners will be chose at random using Random.org.

The contest will close on Sunday the 25th. At that time I will get contact info from you so I can get the tickets to you ASAP. So please make sure you input your email when you leave a comment on this blog.

Your chances of winning this are pretty great since it’s a narrow crowd that will be available, like beer and be willing to drive to Hood River. So what are you waiting for? Enter today.

Keep in mind you must be 21 or older to enter the event.

One more thing. I am giving these tickets away because I can’t go. It’s my 20 year college reunion and yes I am choosing it over this. So I will need you to tell me what I missed.

The winner is Cindy. Congrats Cindy.
