It’s that time of year again where you get to play the part of assistant brewer! We’re teaming up with Legion Brewing to create a beer made with your favorite candy, which will be released at the 8th annual Queen City Brewer’s Festival on Saturday, February 2. If we pick your suggestion, you’ll win two tickets to QCBF 2019.
If you remember, we started this annual Legion Brewing Challenge with our friends at BrewPublik in 2017 with a SMaSH beer (single malt, single hop beer) that you named “Game, Set, SMaSH”, and then again in 2018 featuring a beer made with a cereal — Cinnamon Toast Crunch got the most votes — so aptly named “Why So Cereal?”
So here’s where we need your help. Think of your favorite candy you’d want Legion to use to make a beer and vote in the form below. Whether it be Sour Patch Kids, Skittles, or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, let your imagination run wild!
Here’s how it works:
Step one: Fill out the form at the bottom of this post with your name, contact info and the name of the candy you think should be brewed into a Legion Brewing beer. You have until midnight Jan. 4. The candy that is submitted the most often will be selected as the winner.
Step two: Once we’ve determined which candy wins, we’ll need to name the beer! On Monday, Jan. 7, we’ll announce the winning candy and ask you to submit name suggestions.
Step three: On Monday, Jan. 14, we’ll announce the winning name. If your suggestion wins, you’ll get two tickets to the Queen City Brewers Festival 2019 on Saturday, Feb. 2 at The Fillmore! We’ll be pouring this one-of-a-kind beer at this year’s festival.
Submit your candy suggestion using the form below — good luck!
