So...finally have these things going...hopefully I'm using them correctly
August Contest: Let’s make you a beer!
August 13, 2014
This month’s contest is one that I think will be of mutual benefit to all of you that read the blog and me. As I mentioned previously I really wanted to find a way to make this one more interactive throughout the time the contest is running and give everyone an outlet to be creative. This time is going to be allot of fun because you and I are going to make beer together (yeah, seriously).
As you all know I like using different ingredients in my beer, such as the lemon peel and ginger in my Summa Luvin’ Summer ale or cinnamon in Charlie’s Droopy Stout. For this contest I want you all to give me your ideas on something unique to use in making an awesome homebrew.
The rules are simple: Just use the Twitter or the form on the “About” page to send me an idea for an ingredient and type of beer, for example Carrots and Kolch or Cumin and Porter (both of those would be awful combinations by the way, please don’t suggest them). I will pick a suggestion from all of the entries on August 31st and announce the winner September 1st.
What does the winner receive for their efforts? Well beer of course! Specifically, I will make whatever the winning suggestion is and whoever provided the entry will get 12 bottles of their very own, complete with poorly illustrated labels from me. And with that, go flex your right brain (you know, it’s the part of your brain that helped you doodle during math class in school) and come up with your best beer idea! I’m excited to see the combinations that are concocted with and to share the beer that results as well!
