The Fresh Hop Ale Festival will be on Saturday, October 5th. This event is a fundraiser for giving away grants to local arts and science organizations.

MEGA 99.3 is excited to give away some tickets to "one of the top 10 beer festivals in the United States"!

How it works: At 6:20 in the morning on Thursday (9/26) and Friday (9/27), we will have a Fresh Hop Ale Festival trivia contest to win the tickets. If you miss hearing the trivia question at 6:20 a.m., don't worry because the trivia question will be repeated at 7:20 a.m. and 8:20 a.m.

You must use the MEGA 99.3 mobile app to submit your answer to the trivia question, so make sure you already have our app downloaded (on Google Play or the Itunes App Store).

Winners will be selected at random and notified via the mobile app.
