Win a Pair of VIP Tickets to New Times Beerfest

We are giving away a pair of VIP tickets to the New Times 15th-annual Beerfest, which will be on Saturday, March 31, from 6 to 11 p.m. at Huizenga Plaza in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Sample from more than beers. Don't miss a minute of the Final Four games, displayed on Jumbotrons. Celebrate with the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, the really fun band from New Orleans often featured on HBO's 'Treme.

The VIP tickets are worth $65 each, which includes food from El Jefe Luchador, Tongue N Cheek Gastropub, Rok:Brgr, and New River Pizza. VIP ticket holders will have exclusive access to the beer BX Beer Depot has brewed for us: the New Times Beerfest 15th-Anniversary Brew.
