After the Lottery

Just a dry little post to let you all know that the lottery is officially over. Thank you to all who entered – we were extremely entertained by your creativity, humor and enthusiasm! Organizing spreadsheets and selecting random entrants has never been so much fun!

We have notified everyone one way or the other via email, however we also have a ton of bounced emails. Most of them were going to people who unfortunately didn’t get tickets. So if you are still waiting to hear from us, it means the email you submitted bounced but most likely you did not get selected.

cute kittyIf you were selected you have until the 8th of August to purchase your tickets or they will be turned around to the eager folks on the Lottery wait list.

Thanks again team! For reading this post to the end, here’s a cute picture of a cat in a hat.


Panic Button!

HomerButtonTicketsTomorrow. 7am. Online sales for SIP tickets start.

If last year is any indication, we will sell out quickly. The good news? We had some extra tickets from our Pop Up Sales so we added them to tomorrow’s lot. The other good news? If you don’t manage to snag SIP tickets online, there still a chance to enter our lottery for a chance to purchase one of the last 25 pairs of SIP tickets. You have until Monday July 27 at 8pm. The last bit of good news? If the universe shuts you out of SIP entirely, there are still lots of other great beer fests we recommend like Hop Jam and the Eat x NE Brewhaha.

But don’t panic! You can cue up for tomorrow by clicking on the button below.

Thanks as always for your support and may your beer karma earn you just what you’ve been sipping for!



WaterBeery Pop Up!

imagesUnless you live under a rock, you’re probably aware how awesome Waterbury, WaterBEERy is for beer-lovers. There are great bars and restaurants with drool-worthy tap lists, it’s home to some of the best breweries not only in the state, but arguably in the world, and of course our sponsor,  Craft Beer Cellar is located smack dab in the middle of it all!

So where will the SIP Pop Up Sale take place? Due to the forecast (50% chance of rain – an event planner’s least favorite,) we will not announce until we are actually setting up. However, we can assure you we will be within walking distance to the Craft Beer Cellar, starting around 4:30 or so this afternoon.  Please stay tuned for our posts in the social-media-sphere with complete details.

This is a CASH ONLY sale. You may get up to 2 tickets per person. We will have about 170 tickets for sale.

If you don’t snag tickets today, you still have two more opportunities to test your beer karma! Online tickets will go on sale at 7am on Monday, July 27th,  and you can sign up for our Lottery now!! We will select 25 people to be able to purchase the last pairs of SIP tickets. All lottery entrants will be emailed one way or another on Tuesday, July 28th.

Good luck and cheers!!

–Team SIP Pop Up!
