I would love the opportunity to attend this event! I'm a big Track 7 fan and Two Rivers Cider is always great on a warm day. Thank you for the giveaway.

What a fun event! I would like to be entered for the giveaway.

Sounds like such a fun event, I would be super excited to try Two Rivers Cider Company and I am a big fan of Carvalho Family Winery!

Man, this would be a BLAST! I love our local brews and would love to taste all of them - but the one I haven't tried yet but heard great things about Oak Park Brewery. C'mon, hook me up!!

Cool deal, I'm excited to try Great Basin...I've had their IPA in bottles and would love to try it on tap. Thanks.

This sounds like a great event... would LOVE to try Mount Aukum Winery. Thanks for providing this info, too! I missed Cowtown Eats posts!
