The 2020 Rare Beer Raffle is sponsored by the

Untappd Beer Festival

The 2nd Annual Untappd Beer Festival will be held on May 16th, 2020 in Charlotte, NC at the Bank of America Stadium. Choose from two sessions that brings together the best local brewers, a wide variety of beers, ciders, and other beverages, and a one-of-a-kind VIP experience!

How do I enter?

Just head over to our online store, add entries to your cart for whatever baskets you want to win, and checkout! That’s it!

How many tickets can I buy?

You can purchase as many entries as you want! The more entries you purchase the more chances you have to win!

Who can win?

The online baskets are only open to online entries and not event attendees. That means a better chance you win!

Will you ship me the beer?

Absolutely. We’ll contact winners to coordinate the best time and place to ship the beer, and we’ll foot the bill.

When will we know who won?

We will do the online rare beer raffle drawings before the event and announce the winners the week following the event.

Can I enter online if I’m attending the event?

Yes you can! Just know you have to enter before the event on April 7.


Our online raffle is open to anyone!

Can’t make the event? No problem! Every year we have a set number of beer baskets that anyone can enter even if you aren’t at the event. The online beer baskets are only available to online entries! We’ll draw for and notify the winners right after the event and ship them their beer (for free, of course). It’s an amazing way to help our cause and get a chance to win some of the world’s most sought after beer. 

Purchasing entries for the rare beer raffle is easy and is done through our online store. Our online raffle will go live in the weeks leading up to the event in April. You can purchase as many entries as you want and can designate which baskets they go into. 


We’ll also have exclusive, event-only raffle baskets.

If you’re attending the event you will have access to tons of amazing beer (and non-beer) baskets to enter. Obviously since there are less people entering these event-only baskets, there is a better chance of taking one of those home. 

Just like in the past, there will be some wine and food baskets as well as some other special surprises. We promise you won’t be disappointed. You can purchase raffle tickets at the event with cash, check, or credit card. 

The 2019 In-Person Raffle Baskets

These baskets were available only to event attendees. Some had amazing, hard to find beer. Others had wine, food, tech gadgets, and more!
