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.
Here’s how it works.
- 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 …)
- 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!
- 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).
- 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?
