The Great American Beer Festival is the premier U.S. beer festival and competition. Each year, GABF represents the largest collection of U.S. beer ever served, in a public tasting event plus a private competition. GABF brings together the brewers of diverse beers that make the U.S. the world’s greatest brewing nation. Tickets for this year’s event sold out in less than 20 minutes. But, we snagged four of them for the October 12 evening event and they could be yours! Leave your car keys at home. We’re also including a $100 Visa gift card to help cover cab fare for you and your guests. Maybe beer isn’t your thing? No problem. This month’s winner will have the option of choosing an American Express Travelers Check instead of the GABF prize. Valued at over $400, this is a definitely prize worth going for!
