Win a Schwag Bag and VIP Pass to the Portland Beer Week Kickoff Party!

If you were intrigued by #37 on our list of the 50 Drinks of the Moment from the May/June issue, you'll want to check out Portland's second annual Fruit Beer Festival, part of Portland Beer Week. Portland Beer Week runs from June 7-17, and begins with a Kickoff Gala Party at Spirit of 77. After a successful first year, Portland Beer Week has brought together an even more exciting group of events for its second year including a new official beer, a dry-hopped India Red Lager created in collaboration with Deschutes Brewery and Hopworks Urban Brewery—available in both bottles and on draft through this 10-day beer week that includes the Portland Fruit Beer Festival (June 9-10), the new Rye Beer Fest (June 8) and the return of one of Oregon's most unique events, an Olympics-style Brewers Summer Games (June 16). For a full calendar of events, click here.

To celebrate the upcoming festivities, we're excited to offer a VIP Pass to the Kickoff Party and Schwag Bag! The schwag bag includes a 22-ounce bottle of the reserve India Red Lager, a Portland Beer Week pint glass and card good for discounts and specials at participating breweries and bars, an official beer week T-shirt, a copy of the latest issue of Imbibe, a Spirit of 77 sweatband, and a coupon for your first pint free at the kickoff party on June 7!

To make yourself eligible to win, click here to send us an email with your name, address and email. The deadline to enter is Sunday, June 3, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time, and you must be at least 21 years old to win and attend. We will choose the lucky winner at random on Monday, June 4. Good Luck!
