Some Days You Win And Some Days You Lose

     Those words are extra true when it comes to beer festivals. No matter how hard you try, there are always going to be problems. The bad news was that Hill Farmstead will not be here. They just don't have enough of that sweet hop goodness to go around.  We understand 100%.
    On a brighter note, Evil Genius Beer Company is on Board. And as soon as the brewers, reps and other important folks get back from GABF, we should be wrapping up our beer list later in the week. Now get ready for some October Ticket Paloozaa!

I Think You're Starting To Like Us

     We are now starting to average nearly a 100 hits a day here. That is a far, far cry from the early days, when we got that number over a two week span. Your hunger for more info about this event is wonderful. You also don't know how bad I want to write these several new breweries that I'm looking at right now, on our list, but we must have patience until we get the final go ahead. Those hard working brewers and reps have one hell of a busy schedule right now and trying to sync up with them is sometimes quite a challenge. But try we must. The same goes for our food friends, but I think we will be announcing some of them next week. Trust us, when we know, you'll know just as fast.

Changes

     Welcome back to the new and slightly improved Beersgiving website. We have been toying with this for a couple days, tweaking this and tweaking that. And we still got a couple more twists to go. So, while you wait ever so patiently for the next update in the beer and food category, spend some quality time at one of our lovely ticket sellers located to the right and ask yourself one question. Did I get my tickets yet?
     Beersgiving would also like to welcome The Railroad Street Bar to our fine places of ticket sellers. Also look for a official announcement about their ride program for this event.
     Last but not least, we will be doing a profile of our ticket selling places and once we get a little bit closer, the beer too.
     PS Less than 60 days boys and girls!

The Three Beer-e-teers

     I find that some people need to know what beers will be pouring at a fest. Others want to know what kind of food will be there. And then there are those, who want to know, who's going to be there. Well, let me answer the last question first.
     First up is a man who can clear a room with his mighty laugh. He can bend pretzel sticks with his bare hands. He has more blogs than the average bear. Yes, boys and girls, beer writer, drinks writer, book writer and bike rider, Mr. Lew Bryson will be here to drink beer and sell some of his great books.
     Second is a man we already have discussed, but gosh darn it, we're doing it again. He also has written a couple great books and has a weekly column at the Daily News and is one of the founders of Philly Beer Week, and is teaming up with the CBB for this event,  Mr. Don Russell aka Joe Sixpack.
     Last, and most certainly not least, is a man who lives and breathes beer. Who's writing skills have inspired a nation of wannabe bloggers everywhere, the one, the only, Mr. Jack Curtin.
     I think we here at Beersgiving need a beer ourselves after all this commotion. But first let's welcome 3 more breweries to the mix, Penn, River Horse and Victory. Good things always come in threes.

The Wheels On The Bus Go Round And Round

     So, you're thinking about going to Beersgiving, but you live kinda far away. Maybe you live in the Lansdale area, maybe you live in the Reading area. Or maybe you live in Philadelphia. Nobody wants to drive you back and forth to the fest. And nobody is going sit around for 4 hours while you eat and drink and laugh your ass off and have a great time. Or are they?
     Well boys and girls, I know somebody who will. The Craft Beer Bus. Yes, just like Superman, the Craft Beer Bus is coming to your rescue. They will be making a stop in each of the towns listed to pick you up and take you back and have some fun in the process.
     But wait, there's more! If you are coming from Philly, you will have at least one special guest riding with you, when Mr. Joe Sixpack, aka Don Russell, comes along for the ride. Which means lots of trouble, but in a good way.
    So, what the hell are you waiting for? Get on that website and order your tickets and then kick back and relax, and let CBB take good care of you!

Pimping Ain't Easy

    74 days to go and the strong pimp hand is ready to flood the airwaves after a lovely Labor Day weekend.
We've got this blog, we've got Twitter and we got Facebook. And you're starting to run out of excuses not to know about this event. Some of you out there may get a little tired of all this, but I'm not stopping till 500 tickets are sold. So stop me before I pimp again.
