Well, I have an opportunity for someone to win two tickets to the New Orleans International Beer Festival, sponsored by Abita.

Leave a comment by noon on Monday 3/17 here on this entry telling me what your favorite local Louisiana beer is, your favorite American craft beer, and your favorite non-American beer. I'll pick an entry at random on St. Patrick's Day and announce it on my Facebook page.

The winner gets two tickets to the Festival, which is happening on Saturday, March 22 starting at 2:00pm.
