The Small Brewers Beer Festival gave us 10 double passes to give away to needy individual, so we asked to hear why you deserved to go.
I have listened to your cases, and I have made my decisions.
Winners, we will be sending you an email to the address registered in your account asking for your real name. We will then put your names on the door at the festival.
What happens next is up to you (it will probably involve beer).
HERE ARE THE WINNERS!

I have no appreciation for beer – Simply because I cannot drink it. However, my sister and her boyfriend are both very, very into everything to do with fine beer, (and food in general), so i’d love a pass – Not for me, but so I can hand it to my sister. She’d appreciate it and it’d make me seem like a bit less of an ass.
Aww aren’t you nice?

Hawthorn beat Geelong by less than a goal last week, and I thought Mr Poetix would have a heart attack. My cunning plan is to ease him into the Grand Final by getting him pleasantly tipsy, so that his life-threatening anxiety is reduced. It’s a plan totally endorsed by the AMA (Alcohol Management Association). Help me save Mr P, RiotACT!
I don’t know what a football is, but I’ll assume this is a serious situation.

I have a new baby. He is 4 months old. I have seen far too much moonlight in those 4 months. I love beer. I live in Downer and can stumble comfortably to EPIC. My wife heartily endorses my attendance at this event. If you are me this is a win win.
You can go, so long as you hang out with these guys…

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
You can all form a Dad-Gang.

I am gluten intolerant and boyfriend adores beer tasting – we rarely get to do it together but I know that a couple of these brewers have delicious gluten-free offerings. It’d be nice to go out and imbibe together! 🙂
Make him be the designated driver!

I’m going to the range early on Saturday morning to put a hundred rounds or so through my heavy .38 service revolver.
After that I would like to drink beer, and the event starts at exactly the right time.
Guns and beer simultaneously are not good. Guns followed by beer provides the most fun you can have with your pants on.
Please help me to have fun while keeping my pants on. Trust me, nobody wants to see me with my pants off!
You scare me, take what you want.

I would kill everyone in this thread for a drop of sweet beer…

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.
Everyone should be drunk at Floriade.

I need an excuse not to go to Floriade! And I finally registered with your site just to post this comment, I’m that keen.
Or just drunk and not at Floriade, also welcome to the club.

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.
I expect a report on my desk by Monday morning.
