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 four online baskets are only open to online entries this year. 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. This year the four online beer baskets are only available to online entries! We’ll draw for and notify the winners right after the event on April 7 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 on April 7. 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 event-only baskets were just as impressive…

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