Andrea Trocki was Randomly Selected from Nearly 80,000 Entries and Will Attend the Annual Denver Beer Fest

ORLANDO -- (September 5, 2017) – Yard House, which has four Arizona locations including one in Glendale, has announced the winner of its Great American Beer Festival Giveaway. Andrea Trocki, a resident of Glendale, was randomly selected from nearly 80,000 entries to attend the annual event in Denver this October.

“I can’t believe I won,” said Ms. Trocki, a home loan consultant. “I saw the email come through at work, and I think the entire office heard me screaming with excitement.”

Trocki will be bringing her two daughters to the Great American Beer Festival, which marks its 36th anniversary this year. Trocki, who has been a resident of Arizona for nearly 50 years, was born in Denver and this will be the first time she’s been back to the Mile High City since 1965.

The Great American Beer Festival Giveaway took place over a six-week period during June and July. Participants 21 and older could enter once a day online by simply providing their name and email address. In addition to the Grand Prize, Yard House also gave away (10) $50 Yard House gift cards at random each week. No purchase was necessary to enter.

“Last year was the first time we launched the Great American Beer Festival Giveaway,” said Jennifer Weerheim, vice president of marketing for Yard House. “We’ve been attending the festival for years and wanted to give our guests an opportunity to attend as well. We’re sending members from our team once again, as we always do, and look forward to meeting Andrea and her daughters in person.”

Every year in October beer enthusiasts and brewers from around the United States make the pilgrimage to Denver to take part in the Great American Beer Festival, the premier U.S. beer festival and competition. For 36 years, GABF has been the backdrop for the largest collection of U.S. beer ever served at a public tasting event. As the Grand Prize winner, Ms.Trocki will receive a trip for two to Denver including roundtrip airfare, two-night hotel accommodations, a $200 Yard House gift card, a pair of tickets to Friday and Saturday night’s GABF sessions and $500 in spending money.

About Yard House

When Yard House opened in 1996 in Long Beach, California, it revolutionized the restaurant industry by creating a 250-tap draft beer system. Its lofty design, warm wood accents, and industrial vibe with the use of steel and chrome, made it a dining destination from the start.

Nearly 21 years and 68 restaurants later, Yard House still leads the way with great food, classic rock and a vast selection of draft beer while evolving into an award-winning dining destination known for its menu of American favorites, crafted cocktails and endless fleet of tap handles featuring the best American craft beer and imports. The exhibition kitchen creates more than 100 items made from scratch daily with quality ingredients and globally inspired flavors. The menu reads like a road trip across America and guests can select from an array of items, including grilled burgers, gourmet salads, street tacos, steaks, seafood and house favorites.

Each Yard House has its own distinct beer list with a handful of taps reserved for local and regional brewers along with an offering of seasonal and small-batch selections as part of the rotating Chalkboard Series. The glass-enclosed keg room showcases hundreds of steel barrels containing as much as 4,000 gallons of beer that flow to the center-island bar through an extensive network of tubing positioned overhead. From there the beer is fed to the taps where it’s served ice-cold by the pint, 9-ounce shorty, goblet or half-yard glass container. Yard House is also well-known for its classic rock boasting a library of 10,000 songs with each location having its own distinct playlist. Yard House is open daily for lunch, dinner and late-night dining.
