National Drink Beer Day: Beer and Bikes

Raise your hand if you like the outdoors. Alright, perhaps that was too easy. Now raise your hand if you like beer. Okay, so that’s a lot of you. Well Christmas is coming early this year for somebody, because boy do I have a giveaway for you! Ladies and gents, one of the largest, most important beer festivals descended on the world this past weekend, Denver’s Great American Beer Festival. 750 breweries, 3,500 beers, 50,000 people. Now that’s what I call a beer festival. And I got to experience it for the first time on opening day with Let’s Grab A Beer. It. Was. Awesome. Just as awesome, it's National Drink Beer Day (yes, that's a real thing). So I teamed up with Let's Grab A Beer and my friends at Pure Fix Cycles to give one person a free, customized bicycle. You guys, a free (and might I say, dope), customized bicycle!

So what do you have to do to win? Well, you don’t have to juggle, hula-hoop, jump through a hoop, or any of the like. All you have to do is upload a photo on Instagram with a bicycle and beer in it (an example below) with the hashtag #beerandbikesweeps in the caption or comments. That’s it!

You have until the end of the day on Sunday, October 11, 2015. So snap(<<see what I did there) to it. And most importantly, don’t drink and bicycle. It’s not safe. Nor do I want you getting caught riding dirty.
