I have two extra tickets for the CPTV craft beer and chili challenge 12-4 on Sunday, August 21.  Not trying to make money on them just want to see them get used, it was a great time last year, and definitly not an event to miss.  I paid $109 for the pair, so im asking $50 a peice or a hundred for both.  If your interested in them either message me on here, or shoot me an email @ rdacey@live.com

Don't forget to post your photos to the CT Beer Trail, and use the key word "chili" for a chance to win tickets to this great event!  Any photos will do, maybe you enjoying a back yard BBQ and a beer, or some bar room antics, as long as local CT beer is involved.  The most likes wins!!!
