I want a free ticket because I like my beer to be brewed… and small… (?)

Rather than being carbon based, I am actually a beer based life form. A free ticket to this gig is necessary to ensure my survival.

Count those words…25…no more, no less. 🙂

free ticket: then I don’t have to buy my husband a birthday present.

House being renovated. Living in 3 rooms with batshit crazy stressed wife and 2 kids. I really really really really need a drink (or ten).

Wig & Pen do a beetroot beer, as do 4 Pines. But they’re not listed. I wonder who’s it is?

The black pilsner would be the one from Pinchgut I reckon.

2 Brothers Guvner is a great barley wine. It’s around 10% ABV. That’s double strength for a pale but standard strength for a barley wine.

I would really like a free pass, because I have never tried beer and this seems like a good opportunity to start 🙂

LegalNut 6:21 pm 05 Mar 13

I’d love to try some exciting new beers and take on the inspiration for my own brewing. Double Barleywine just sounds like Yum.

Jethro 4:16 pm 05 Mar 13

Because I like drinking beer.

Ben_Dover 4:00 pm 05 Mar 13

As I’m working that day, I cannot go. Give me the ticket, and at least I’ll have the pleasure of denying someone else a freebee.

YeahBuddy 3:59 pm 05 Mar 13

Its my BFF’s birthday (30th no less!) and we didn’t realise you had to buy tickets. Can we please have them for free?

f4te 3:48 pm 05 Mar 13

Free ticket reason: Because life is too short to drink s*** beer… and it’s the only way the wife will let me go!

shirty_bear 3:40 pm 05 Mar 13

I would like a free ticket coz it’s just like a regular ticket, only liberated. A ticket-of-leave, if you will. Just like the great man, James Squire himself.

RiotFrog 2:51 pm 05 Mar 13

Free ticket: Beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer.

Matt_Watts 1:49 pm 05 Mar 13

Free ticket reason: For the enjoyment of alcohol. Nothing to do with the self-promotion that comes with the winning of said tickets.
