80 Days Of Pimping Left

    You have read the headline correctly. There is only 80 days left till Beersgiving. 80 days till you're standing in one of the biggest ballrooms on the east coast sampling a great beer, out of one hell of a cool glass and noshing on some fine light foods. 80 days till you and your old college buddies, friends and long lost family members get together for some pre Thanksgiving fun. 80 days till you try and find out where all the cool after parties are going to be. And hopefully 80 days to you say to everybody, "I sure hope they do this again next year".
    But there is a catch to all this. You need to buy a ticket. Now, I know what you are thinking, hell, I am right there with you. It's early yet, I got time, I have a lot of Labor Day stuff to get to. Then 80 becomes 60 and 60 becomes 30 and next thing you know, you're at a Halloween party and someone says, "Hey did you get your tickets yet?" Well, they are not being sold online, you will have to go to the places listed, bring your cash and pony up. Maybe you wait to see what new breweries will be there. Maybe you will wait to see what the food will be. And maybe, just maybe, you might wait too long.
    So get ready Freddy. The strong pimp hand is getting ready to unleash it's pimping power upon you fine folks. We're only just stretching it out right now.

What Song Do You Want To Hear?

    Everything and everybody has a theme song. Some are happy, some are scary and some are pure simple 30 seconds of mindless pop. Except us. We don't have a theme song, yet.

    So, without further adieu, I bring you the "Write The Beersgiving Theme Song And Win Two Tickets To The Festival Contest" A crazy last minute what the hell let's have some fun with this sucker kind of contest. Now of course there has to be some type of rules and regulations, but hell, I can't think of any really good ones right now, except that the word "Beersgiving" must be used in the song and it must be about our little shindig. Maybe I will even get in touch with some of our local ticket sellers to see if they want to have a live "Beersgiving Idol" performance of the final 4 maybe, but until then, a nice simple video on You Tube is the way to go. Please, pretty please, don't flood my inboxes with videos, instead flood this twitter account and this blog with links to your song. How will we pick the winner? An esteemed panel of judges, a vote by the masses, nah, more than likely we will all get drunk one night and review them all. I dunno know just yet. Those details will work themselves out over the weekend. You just have to stay tuned, get it? Now start writing!

This Is What We're Talking About Willis

    Another day, another five more breweries added to Beersgiving. That brings our total up to 25, with 7 more lurking nearby in negotiations. So let us welcome aboard, Stillwater, Dark Horse, Mission, Willamsburg and Uncommon.
   For those checking things out in a mobile browser, you have to go to the web version to see the list of breweries and places to buy tickets. If need be, I can switch the mobile to just a web version for you fine smartphone folks. It's your call.

Twitter Dee And Twitter Dum

    Okay, just this one time, I promise. Beersgiving is getting ready to get all a twitter on your asses. Starting pretty damn soon, like next week, you will be able to get all your updates and our thoughts about putting on this fest right at your fingertips. As long as you put your beer down first. Because I know how thirsty you can be reading a long twitter post, he says with tongue in cheek. Also be on the lookout for the Facebook pimping explosion right after Labor Day. Cause I know nobody reads in the summer.
    We are also in contact with our friends at the Craft Beer Bus for some transport options. And it looks like the next wave of brewers should start hitting by the end of the week, so stay tuned. And get those tickets kids!

We Are Almost Half Way To 50

    More good news today as several more names jumped on the Beersgivng express. It pushes us officially to 20 with several more lurking in the wings. And I think those wings are going to be flapping real soon.
Also, we welcome Sly Fox Rofo and Union Jacks to our ticket locations. Look for our posters there and in the very near future, every damn good beer bar in the area.

Let's Get This Party Started

    Today is day one of ticket sales. For your entertainment here is the list of places right now where you can buy them.
CRAFT ALE HOUSE
CAPONES
DRAFTING ROOM
SLY FOX PHOENIXVILLE
SUNNYBROOK
TJ'S
UNION JACKS MANATAWNY

    I still have a couple more stops on my list to get to, hopefully later today after I sweat out all the beer I drank over the last two days. And now a word of advice, please be patient. More than likely there are still a few bugs in the system as places figure out how they want to sell tickets and also inform their staff. I would think most places will ask for cash, so be ready. So don't you worry or don't you fret, this ain't selling out today, not just yet.
