I Want To Give You A Free Ticket to HOP in the City Using Facebook and Twitter

hoptixThis coming Saturday, September 17th marks the 13th year of HOP in the City, Schlafly Beer’s largest annual festival, and I’m giving away some free tickets to some lucky fans!

All this week, from Monday, September 12th through Friday, September 16th, I’ll be giving away HOP in the City tickets each day, through both our @Schlafly Twitter Account as well as our Schlafly Beer Facebook Page.

There is No Purchase Necessary to win tickets, but you must be of legal drinking age (21+).

How will all this free ticket shenanagins happen, you may be asking? Here’s the deal.

To win HOP tickets through Twitter:

  1. You must Follow @Schlafly on Twitter. I will contact winners by Direct Message, which I can not do if you don’t Follow me.
  2. Simply tweet or retweet any message you see fit that includes the hashtag #HOPintheCity.  You can do this as much as you want, as often as you want. Even better if you include an @Schlafly call out, but not mandatory.
  3. Using our state of the art SchlaflBot 3000, one winner will randomly be selected each day from all Tweets that include the #HOPintheCity hashtag.
  4. Each day’s winner will recieve one complimentary ticket to HOP in the City happening this Saturday at the Schlafly Tap Room. If you want to attend with friends and loved ones, tell them to win their own darn ticket… or better yet, buy one.  
  5. All winners will be contacted through Twitter by Direct Message and be asked to confirm they can attend by email.  All winning tickets will be available for pick up at the Schlafly Tap Room on the day of the festival at a yet to be determined location (I’ll email you.)
  6. Each individual may only win the Twitter contest once. You can still win the Facebook contest.
  7. That’s it. Start Tweeting about #HOPintheCity and @Schlafly and good luck.

  7. I will attempt to notify winners through the Facebook Messaging system, but if your security is high, I may not be able to do this. I will also announce the winners on the Contest Postings.
