Name that beer! Next West Seattle/White Center benefit brew

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:


~ brought to you by ~ Big Al Brewing, The Feedback Lounge, West 5, Shadowland, Mission, The Bridge, Locöl, Beveridge Place Pub and Company Bar

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 Full rules etc. can be seen here.

    Hi Dave – It’s on the web page along with the rules, prizes, etc. (Hint: it’s a hoppier pale ale).

    When I think of Beer and West Seattle, I think of the patron saint of carbonation:

    Jeff-did you really mean one entry per person (or one entry per email)? How can I choose only one of my ideas to submit?!?!?!?

  • Jeff Gilbert March 1, 2012 (5:09 pm)

    One entry per person ( to make it fair). Or legally change your name several times :-)
