What You See, Is What You Get

     When you go to buy your ticket to "Beersgiving", this is what it will look like. Now for those who haven't been drinking, you might notice a couple of strange things. Like the the date. That was the day of my original fest, which I shot down, but not before these tickets got printed. So our thoughts were, why waste them. The 19th is right. Saturday is right and so is the time. It just November not March. I think we can handle that. Most of us are grown ups now......

Tickets on sale August 1
In the all important news of who's coming with what beer. I have been waiting for the all important dotting of the I's and crossing of the T's. There is around 25 so far, but I would rather wait a few more days while most of them sober up from BCTC this weekend.

Virtual Reality

Here it is boys and girls, fresh from the farm, Virtual Farm that is. Todd Palmer and the hard working folks took my vision and made it 10x better. This is what you will see when you go to buy tickets next week at your local watering holes. I will be trying to add a few more places to the list this week. Also it's just about time to add some more beer to that list. Look for those new additions during the week.

Behind The Scenes

      The one thing about putting on a beer festival is you need a lot of help. You need more insider beer knowledge than you would ever know. You need volunteers to help with every small nuance on the day of the fest. You need the crack team from Virtual Farm to bring your vision to life. You need the great folks at Sunnybrook to keep trusting my crazy beliefs. You need fine people in the beer business to help sell tickets. And most important of all is, we need you, the customers to help out by buying those tickets when the time comes. It has been almost ten years since a fest was held in this general area of this size. The closest ones that come to mind were the old Desmond fest and I'm guessing Stoudt's annual fests. If we ALL can pull this off, maybe just maybe, we will all have something to look forward to every Saturday before Thanksgiving.

In other news, keep checking the right side as we add new places to buy tickets and each week we will add several new breweries to the list as well. We're definitely in the dog days of summer, but there will be some cool relief at the end of the sunburned rainbow.

Who, What, When, Where, Why And How

Damn, that's a lot of questions, but that is to be expected for something like this. So let's give it a go, shall we?

Who: That would be me, Mr. Dan, Mr. TNSC, Big Fella and a whole host of names I wont get into here.

What: Beersgiving, a thankful celebration of the seasons food and beer. Aka: beer fest

When: November 19 2011 at 2pm to 6pm sharp.

Where: Sunnybrook Ballroom
50 Sunnybrook Road
Pottstown PA 19464

Why: To raise money for the continued revitalisation of Sunnybrook. And to hopefully let everybody have a good time.

How: Ah, this is the hard part. With a hell of a lot of work from a wide ranging group of people to put this together, to you, the future customers, and we all hope by 7pm on November 19, to be all very happy.

I guess there is still some more questions like, when and where do tickets go on sale?
The answer to that is August 1. The where part is on the right side of the blog.
How much are tickets? They are $50. Beer ain't cheap and I ain't making no money off this sucka.
Who is going to be there? Yes, the million dollar question. Hold on to your mugs kids, the list is taking shape as we speak.
