Pun for Phun: BS Brewing T-Shirt Contest

Yes. We did it. We confirmed our commitment to blogging with the ultimate geek statement: custom-made t-shirts, modeled by yours truly. We even wear them in public. And so can you, courtesy of the Champagne of Blogs’ first contest. And there’s only one catch – details below.

How did BS Brewing afford Tom Cruise’s modeling services? And when did he gain 75 pounds?

Here’s how it works.

  1. Come up with a punny name for a homegrown-hop-laden IPA I brewed for Bruce and Eryn’s baby shower. Extra special bonus points for a beer that follows the B_______ S_______ naming formula. Emphasis on the punny: think Hopsickle, Hop Rod Rye, Hop Dreams, etc. And yes, I already thought of Baby Shit IPA (although, that’s a great name for a brown …)
  2. Add your beer name idea to the comment area below, making sure to include your real e-mail address (don’t worry, it won’t show up for spammers; it’s so I can contact you if you win). Multiple entries encouraged!
  3. Whichever one makes me chortle hardest before Saturday, July 21st at midnight PST WINS an official BS Brewing T-Shirt, touting the magical Bird Shit Stout (whose name comes from an extra-special aerially-administered ingredient that may or may not have occurred during our first outdoor brew).
  4. I’ll mail the winner his/her t-shirt first thing Monday the 23rd, which should get it to your door just in time for the Oregon Brewer’s Festival.

Oh, and that catch I mentioned earlier? I have only size XL. Apparently, I overestimated the girth of several of the BS Brewing crew and they took all the larges, leaving me with only XL’s. But hey, I figure a bunch of computer nerds who enjoy drinking beer and grilling are probably skewed more toward the XL end of the ol’ bell curve, right?

  1. Nice tees! Hmmm, I had a tuff time between Butt Suck or Boob Sprite and came up with,

    “Bitter Suckle”

    BS Brewing’s Baby Shower Bitter Suckle IPA

  2. Here are a few:
    Red, White and Brew
    Amber Waves of Pain
    Bunny-Hop Brown
    IPA Yellow River

    And, following the BS formula:
    Bitch Slap Red
    Bertha-Sized Stout
    Bottle-Top Hop Scotch
    Bat Shitinsane IPA
    Biggy Smalls 40 ouncer

  3. Hey, I didn’t see a disclaimer saying employees of BS Brewing were exempt so you might as well start making the label and give me the shirt on Sunday.

    Bad Ship Lolli-Hop

  4. I saw one of you guys wearing a tee at PIB. It was across the park, but the logo is indelible. I said to the group I was with, “Whoa, I think I just saw a beer blogger.” We’re a rare species, but less so at beer fests.

  5. That was probably Andrew. Of course, you too could wear a BS Brewing t-shirt if you came up with an awesome name for my hoppy IPA. Just saying …

  6. The funny part is we have to coordinate before going to beer fests now. One shirt is cool, two or more and we’re bigger beer geeks than we already are.

  7. Belly Stretcher Hop-A-Size IPA
    BurpenSpittle DipePA
    IPAdural Hazy-Hopped IPA
    Baby’s First Hops
