Second Annual World Beer Festival Cleveland Giveaway

The All About Beer Magazine's World Beer Festival made its way to Cleveland last year for its inaugural event. They are returning on Saturday, June 14th with more than 75 breweries represented.
Attendees will have over 200 craft and specialty beers from around the world, and a General Admission ticket ($40) will get you 40 samples and a tasting glass. You'll also have access into the Art of Beer Experience for beer ingredient samplings, pairings, educational seminars, a mini commercial brewery and more. A VIP experience is also available for $75, which gives you an additional hour of tasting, a private entrance, hospitality area and bathrooms, bonus selection of beers not available to the general admission guests, a Festival commemorative gift, and a food buffet. For $35 more, it sounds worth it, in my opinion. Tickets are available here.
Or, you can win two General Admission passes through this blog! Just tell me which brewery from the Participating List of Vendors that you want to sample first. Some that I'd go after are the Founder's and Hoppin' Frog. The list is missing some of my favorites, like Epic, but there will still be plenty of beer to taste and I think this event is reasonably priced.

It is also taking place at the Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica this year, which is a nice change-up from last year's event. There will be food vendors and live music as well. The event runs from 1:00pm - 5:00pm (noon start if VIP), so you still have the rest of the day to enjoy after the event concludes. How do you feel about an afternoon beer event? 

The ticket giveaway will run through this Friday at 4:00pm, and I will select a winner using random.org. Good luck!

Disclosure: I was provided with four General Admission passes to the event, two to give away and two for myself, in exchange for this post. All opinions are 100% my own.

Jackie O's seems to get a lot of love from the McCartney's so that would be my choice! :)
