Our rare beer raffle will go live in early 2019. Stay tuned!


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. If we choose your ticket when we do the drawing at the event, we’ll ship you your beer for free. 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 can still enter the beer baskets in the online raffle, but you will also be able to enter to win a number of other raffle baskets at the event. 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. 

Last Year’s Online Baskets 

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!
