UPDATE: Congratulations to Jordenroman, who won the contest by telling a tale of a beer so delicious it had to be taken into the shower. Thanks to everyone else for your stories of beer love. Cheers.
Tickets to the Great American Beer Festival, which takes place October 10-12 at the Colorado Convention Center, sold out within minutes earlier this year, leaving many would-be attendees high and dry -- very dry. But you can win two to Saturday night's session (October 12 at 5:30 p.m.), courtesy of Westword and Visit Denver, which organizes the annual Denver Beer Fest, which takes place before and during GABF.
To win the tickets (along with two Denver Beer Trail Guide booklets from Visit Denver), you need to tell us what you think the best Colorado beer has been so far this year -- and why (please provide your e-mail address as well so that we can contact you). We'll pick a winner and based on the answers and announce the results 48 hours from now.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
