First came Löwman Bräu – then Whale Tail Ale … The next charity-benefiting brew to be debuted by the West Seattle/White Center beverage community is almost ready, and this time, YOU get a chance to name it! Jeff Gilbert from Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor) – one of nine participating establishments – shares the announcement:
NAME THE NEXT WEST SEATTLE/WHITE CENTER CHARITY BEER A COMMUNITY-WIDE CONTEST MARCH 1, 2012 – MARCH 18, 2012
It’s that time again and we’re about to premiere the third of three West Seattle/White Center charity beers crafted by BIG AL BREWING – and we’re inviting YOU to give it a name!
Last year we debuted LÖWMAN BRÄU (named after West Seattle’s Lowman Beach) and WHALE TAIL ALE (in homage to the famous whale tale sculpture on the Alki Elementary playground). This year the naming rights are given over to the West Seattle/White Center communities and all the prestige that comes with it!
Come up with a name that is West Seattle/White Center-centric and e-mail it to us. The author/authorette of the winning name will receive a $25 gift certificate from THE FEEDBACK LOUNGE, WEST 5, MISSION, SHADOWLAND, LOCÖL, BIG AL BREWING, THE BRIDGE, BEVERIDGE PUB PLACE and COMPANY BAR ($225 value), along with a T-shirt from each of these fine establishments ($150 value).
That’s not all:
… you and three guests will be invited to the advance tasting party, and you’ll get to pick the West Seattle/White Center charity of your choice to benefit from a percentage of the sales of YOUR BEER, and get your picture/bio on YOUR BEER’S website, plus all bragging rights and international neighborhood fame are yours exclusively.
“The West Seattle and White Center communities have been extraordinarily supportive with our first two charity beers,” says Feedback Lounge co-owner, Jeff Gilbert. “So we thought it’d be a fun idea to let the communities name the next one. And just so we’re clear, this contest is only open to West Seattle and White Center residents; it just wouldn’t do to have a Ballardite name our beer.”
This is on the poster at right, but not big enough to see, so: E-mail entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Full rules etc. can be seen here.
