Win free double passes to Small Brewers Beer Festival

Beer Fest

The Small Brewers Beer Festival is happening this Saturday, and they’ve given us 10 free double passes to pass on to you guys.

To win one all you have to do is tell us in the comments why you deserve to to win.

Simple right? This way we know the tickets will end up in the most deserving hands.

You’ve got until close of business* Thursday to get your answers in.

Good luck!

*Our business that is, so like 5pm… Not your business. I don’t know what kind of crazy business you work in or when it finishes.

Can your gun follow these kickass maneuvers?

Ah…nope. A man’s gotta know his limitations. 🙂

I recently won my mate’s Inaugural Canada Day Beer Appreciation Contest. My prize was a bottle of authentic Canadian Maple Syrup for the most creative (and poetic) desciption of each beer. I would love to unleash (and flex) my creative thoughts on the fine offerings at the Small Brewers Beer Festival.

If I had a double pass I would take my son, who is several axe handles wide at the shoulders, and we would wander aimlessly throughout the festival, swigging the brilliant products of the beer brewers and endlessly harangue the cider producers. We would tell them (sort of politely) to get out and, instead, flog their wares at wine shows because that is where they belong. As with making wine, making cider depends solely on the quality of your ingredients – it has nothing to do with the talents of the brewer.

If you – especially the lycra clad RiotAct twit face users (who spend all week photographing badly parked cars) – do not agree, I pose you a question. How many commercial beer brewers are doctors or lawyers? As far as I know, there are none because it takes skill to brew beer. A further question. How many doctors and lawyers produce wine? Hundreds, because any silly bastard can plant grape vines and buy a vat. The quality of the wine comes from the earth not the vintner (‘terroir’ as the French say). Production of cider is exactly the same.

For much of the past decade we have seen the supermarkets with the big fridges stocking more boutique beers at the expense of some of Australia’s mainstream carbonated p*ss (never forget that Fosters were two American brothers who did not brew beer, but rather discovered how to chill beer with ice). But now, what do we see in those fridges, bloody cider replacing the small brewers’ beer. We must not fall for the big chains’ product placement. It is time we told them to move cider into their wine fridges where it belongs.

RiotActors it is time to reclaim the beer fridge!

If I had a double pass I’d glass you with a cider bottle!

Because each oktober I try as many beers as possible and this would be the perfect way to start. Also I’m working on Saturday morning and would feel like a few beers afterwards.

I was able to walk out of the last beer festival and subsequently I’d appreciate the opportunity to rectify that issue this year 🙂

What do you think of pear cider?

I ask as I don’t think that your response was long enough, and I would like you to share more of your views.

I would love to go to the brewers beer festival, as my wife has given me a free pass from looking after my 20 month old boy. I would love to be able to give the second ticket to my good mate who is the very proud father of a 3 month old girl, this would be one of his first weekend day day away from his beautiful little girl.

We would love to share this small break from the pleasure that is parenting and share a few cheeky beers.

good luck to who ever wins I hope you have a great time

I’m currently in the bad-books with my partner and desperately need to acquire some brownie points. Tickets to a delicious craft beer festival might just do the trick. Please help me!

Pick me pick me! I am woefully uneducated when it comes to beer and in dire need of some learnings! Please dont condemn me to drinking VB and thinking that this is the best beer could be!

My dad has been making his own brew for the last 15 years, and it’s terrible. Also, my parents are coming down this weekend and I’ve run out of ideas for things to see and do other than the obligatory Floriade visit. This might be a step forward in improving his beer production and will make admiring tulips more tolerable. Please help. Please send beer.

“He is not deserving the name of Englishman who speaketh against ale, that is, good ale. — George Borrow (1803-1881) ” I am a Pom and I ain’t speaking against it!

I’m getting married in just under a month and this could very well be my last chance to get out of the house and experience such fine beers!

I like beer. But i promise to drink responsibly and not drive home drunk and/or do stupid things. That way I won’t end up as a story in the Riot Act… such as a drunk tosser in a white commodore doing burnouts and trying to outrun coppers… as I’m happy simply being a contributor.
