Best Valued Brewsvegas Events!



It’s that time of year again! The 4th annual Brewsvegas festival is kicking off next week and I for one am pumped that it’s back.

With such a large program, it can sometimes be a bit difficult to select your itinerary and if you’re a bit of a spend-thrift like I, you tend to look for the events that are going to give you the most bang for your buck.

Brewsvegas Online Program is Live plus New Contest

Brewsvegas-2016-Square-bannerThe countdown timer on the Brewsvegas website has finally ticked over to zero, and the online version of the 2016 event calendar is now live!

Last night saw the official launch of the printed version with a pool party at Ithaca Swimming Pool in Paddington. Inclement weather was not a problem as folks brought swimmers and floaties to celebrate the launch and were treated to live music. I was unable to attend the event due to a prior engagement, so needless to say I’m pretty excited for the website launch.

This year, not only am I a patron this year, Brews and Bacon is also an event host! On March 17th, I’ll be taking folks on an educational pub crawl around some of my favourite spots in and around Fortitude Valley. There will be 5 different styles across 5 venues, with food, fun, and games along the way, and only for $30!

Being excited to be part of the event listings, I’ve decided to run a little contest from now until Feb 28th. To enter you’ll only need to do a few things:

  1. Be a fan of the Brews and Bacon Facebook page and follow me on Instagram
  2. Take a selfie in your favourite Fortitude Valley good beer establishment
  3. Post it on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtags #brewsvegas16 and #BnBValleySelfie

The best selfie, as judged by me (and probably my wife), will win 2 free tickets to the pub crawl along with a pair Brews and Bacon t-shirts and a Newstead Brewing mixed 6 pack! Contest will close at the end of day, February 28th, with the winner announced on the 29th. So get out there and start taking snaps!

Hint: judging will be based on how good the photo looks and how well you incorporate the location that you’re at. Try also tagging the venue!

Brewsvegas runs this year from March 11 – 20. #brewsvegas16

February is the new November. It’s that month before a big, highly anticipated event. November has Christmas to look forward to and February, it gets Brewsvegas.

This year, I’ve decided I’d get a bit more involved in the festivities. Instead of simply drinking my way through paddles of beer, I’m throwing a little competition called “Bards of Brewsvegas”. Continue reading
