Clean up RVA, Win Free Beer!

We’re really excited to be partnering with the Virginia Craft Brewers Fest to give away four tickets to the event on Aug. 19 in C-ville. First the details, then the catch.

Deets: The Va. Craft Brewers Fest goes off at 2 p.m. (1 p.m. for those with VIP tix) on Aug. 19 at IX Art Park in Charlottesville. It features a ridiculous amount of Virginia craft breweries — almost 100 to be somewhat exact. You can buy tickets here or you can win them right here, two sets of two of them of them, in fact — a $120 value for each set of two. But that’s where the catch comes in…

Last year’s Va. Craft Brewers Fest in Charlottesville.

The Catch: Our friends at the Va. Craft Brewers Fest aren’t just purveyors and promoters of great Virginia beer. They also want to make our fine commonwealth a better place to drink beer. To that end: To be eligible for the tickets to this huge party, you’ve got to visit our friends at Keep Virginia Cozy, an RVA-based group dedicated to cleaning up Richmond and our fair state. Check out their Facebook page here and consider signing up for their next event, which (what are the odds?) starts an ends at Vasen Brewing Company in Scott’s Addition. Once you’ve liked them on FB, shoot us an email (andy@richmondoutside.com) and you’ll be entered in the giveaway.

And finally… Next Monday (Aug. 14), we’ll pick two winners at random and send them an email with a code for their free tickets. Simple as that!
