OK, so you may have to act fast here — like buying a plane ticket today and heading out tomorrow fast — but the chance exists for you to win a trip to Belgium during Philly Beer Week (PBW) — taking place as we speak!
Per annual tradition, one lucky beer lover will travel to Oostvleteren, Belgium, accompanied by a local brewer of their choice, to create the collaboration brew. Tom Peters, proprietor of Monk’s Café and famed Belgian beer ambassador, will lead a whirlwind tour to some of Belgium’s most storied breweries, complete with VIP access and private tastings.
Time is of the essence — give me details!
Let’s cut to the chase: here is the link to purchase a raffle ticket.
