  1. I would love to go to the hop festival because A IIPAs are my favorite style, B my wife is allergic to hops so I am limited in how often I get to drink them and C it gives me a good reason to not go to a company clambake

    PS: I also retweeted this for you and I have been following you on twitter for a while

  2. IPA's? Sure! I'm in! (aft session, please).

  3. I would love to go to the hop festival. It would be great to win cause I cant afford the tickets this year.

  4. Driving up from Chattanooga. There is no such thing as too much hops. I eat hops for breakfast. Afternoon session please.

  5. Fatheads is an awesome place with awesome beer. I feel I don't go there enough for living semi close to it. This event sounds good and I'd love to win the tix. Either session is fine with me.

    PS. Their peach beer really good.

  6. I would definitely like to win! I would prefer the earlier session, but either would work. There's no bad time to drink IPAs!

  17. My lovely wife the hophead says free is the best way to attend. I would prefer the afternoon but will be happy with either session.

  18. I would like to win tickets to the afternoon session. If I won, I would take my boyfriend and we would go and he would have blast (as would I). He is moving to Denver on October 9th, and this would be a great way to spend his last day in Cleveland!

    Oh. And I tweeted about this. And now I'm following you.

  19. We were just there last week and saw this event---very cool.

    I think the 1-4 pm session would work best for us that day :)
