Beer Bound

Congratulations to Imbibe reader Bill Balcziack from Prior Lake, Minnesota, who won the giveaway we announced in last week's Tasting Notes e-newsletter. Bill won an all-sessions pass to the 2008 Great American Beer Festival (Denver, Colo., Oct 9–11) for himself and a friend in a random drawing of replies we received from readers naming their favorite beer of the moment.

Bill's pick? Minnesota-brewed Surly's Furious, an IPA-style beer that boasts four varieties of hops and Scottish Golden Promise malt. Surly Brewing Company will be in attendance at the annual beervana, along with nearly 400 other breweries. Tickets are going fast, with most sessions already sold out. If you'll be in Denver for the big event, be sure to stop by and see us at booth K-36. We'd love to see you there!

Thanks to everyone who submitted their favorite beer picks for this drawing; we enjoyed reading every entry. If you'd like to hear about giveaways in the future, sign up for our monthly Tasting Notes e-newsletter.

See you in Denver, Bill!
