Vern Eide Honda’s Hops & Hondas Tour

Vern Eide Honda is giving away a two-year lease for a Honda Civic to benefit the Sioux Falls Area Court Appointed Special Advocate Program, or CASA, through the Hops & Hondas Tour. Each Friday in June features a different brewery. Those participating in the tour can claim one entry for the car at each brewery and get a “passport stamp” for a chance to win a $750 package of prizes. Participants also have the chance to win $50 bar tabs.

The breweries will feature drink specials and a portion of the proceeds will go to CASA. Participants also can make donations at the breweries, and Vern Eide Honda is offering complimentary rides home from the breweries, with the option for a free-will donation to CASA. At the Downtown Block Party on July 6, the winners of the car lease and prize package will be announced. Vern Eide will present a donation to CASA, along with the other funds raised throughout June. Here are the dates for the breweries: June 8, Fernson on 8th; June 15, WoodGrain Brewing Co.; June 22, Remedy Brewing Co.; June 29, Monks House of Ale Repute.
