I want a Golden Ticket!

Johnny Depp and Hunter Thompson are giving away tickets to the most spectaular send off in history. Except for Gene Rodenberry's funeral,

Brian Harvey of Boise, Idaho, found a secret ticket hidden inside the label on a bottle of the Flying Dog Brewery's Gonzo Imperial Porter.

The ticket grants Mr Harvey and a friend entry to the party, as well as transport and accommodation, according to the company's website.

Gonzo Imperial Porter, with a label designed by another close friend of Thompson's, British artist Ralph Steadman, has a hefty price tag and a worthy cause. Bottles of the beer sell for $95 (£53). Only 1,500 numbered bottles have been made, and proceeds from the sale go to raise money for the Gonzo Memorial Fund. The fund, says the company's website, was "set up initially to raise funds for a permanent memorial to Hunter so future generations can ponder the life of one of the world's great mavericks".
