Update: Congratulations to 94cubuff and Teresa Burwell! You have each won two tickets. To everyone else, thanks for writing in: This was one of our toughest contests in a while.

Original post: It was all such a blur. Within 45 minutes of their release on August 2, every ticket to the annual booze-a-palooza that is the Great American Beer Festival had sold out . All of them. While some dreams were achieved, others were dashed. But if you were one of the unfortunates who didn't get tickets, don't fret: Westword has extras to the first night of GABF on Thursday, October 11, at the Colorado Convention Center , and we'd love to give them to you.

If you want to get your hands on them, keep reading. (Spoiler: It requires some deep beer thoughts.)
