Sup dog? Heard you like free stuff.

We’ve decided to combine our favorite things (free stuff, beer, and pets) into our biggest giveaway yet. One lucky winner will get a $250 travel stipend, a room at Ace Hotel Pittsburgh, two tickets to our Juicy Brews Hotel Party in Pittsburgh, and two limited edition Hop Culture teku glasses. We’ll even make our favorite assistant editor, John Paradiso, paint your toes with little dachshunds.

Okay, he won’t paint your toes. Hawkward! But the other stuff? It’s yours.

Get otter here, you’re saying. Are you kitten me right now? You’re lion. That’s the sealiest thing I’ve ever heard. But we’re fur real. Starting 12:00 PM EST on Monday, January 29th, you’ll be able to enter the contest by following @hopculturemag on Instagram and tagging three of your friends. You can get another entry by re-gramming our contest announcement post, and a third by featuring the contest in your Instagram story. The contest will run until 11:59 PM EST on February 9th, when we’ll tally the entries and pick a random winner.

At any point during the contest, tag us in a picture or video featuring your pet and a beer for a chance to get reposted from the Hop Culture account. We’ll be monitoring the hashtag #hopculturepartyanimals for the best pics.

For every entry we get, we’ll donate $.25 to Humane Animal Rescue! We appreciate your support and thank you in advance for supporting Hop Culture and Humane Animal Rescue.
