Beer + Music = Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Share this article:
Just before heading out for the long weekend, I received a great promo e-mail from Newcastle Brown Ale.

No, they aren't sending me free beer, but they could potentially send me, for free, to the Glastonbury Music Festival next June. The imported British ale is launching an in-store supermarket sweepstakes in the US, where 4 grand prize winners (and one guest each) will be sent on an all-expenses-paid trip to Glastonbury, where they can rock out in a muddy field, surrounded by ultra-hip music-type people (Jay-Z, Amy Winehouse and Leonard Cohen played last year, along with a billion others that I would give my left arm to see).

Tear-off, mail-in entry forms will be placed in grocery stores nationwide through November 15 of this year.

I will try to follow up on this story next week, so stay tuned for more details -- and please take me if you win!
