I was planning on doing a post on fermenting at acceptable temperatures in a hot room, but seeing as how the triple digits are gone for now it won’t do me much good. Might do others some good, but not me 🙂

Today instead I wanted to talk about community. Community is a word I absolutely hate. Maybe hate is a strong word. Nope, it works in this case. Community has become corrupted into a trendy buzz word that has lost any good solid meaning. I guess a better word would be  a group of people with similar interests who bounce ideas off each other, support each other, and collaborate. Ok, that’s a phrase, and one of the definitions of community, but it’s still more pleasant to my ears then community.

Anywho, I know for a fact that there are knowledgeable people who read this blog and have interesting stuff to say. And, to be honest I sometimes get tired of hearing myself talk. That combined with my need to unload these Deschutes posters has led to the development of an idea. I have posters to give away, you guys have valuable input. Later today I will put pictures of the posters up and the number of each I have. Then I will give them away in exchange for input.

If you would like a poster, then all I ask is you write some content for this blog. You can rant against BMC, IPA’s. You can write what you want. Just send it to If I like it I’ll let you know what posters are still available and send one to you. Sound good to you guys?

Deschutes Posters

Friday, July 10th, 2009

deschutes-logo2I’ve been meaning to do an update for awhile about this, but one thing after another drove it from my mind.

I got ahold of two separate people from Deschutes, and they’ve both declined having an add on this blog. Also they informed me that they can’t give me any hats, tees, glasses, or such to give away. Sad day eh? Awesomely though I am still gonna give away the posters. The problem is I can’t decide how. If I’d have known giving stuff away took this much thinking I would’ve delegated away this responsibility to Paul. I do enjoy being able to tell people they won something though so I will figure something out eventually. Also I’ll keep beating the streets for more free beer related stuff to give away. After all I’m a poor kid in my twenties, so free is good.

I know there are a few people that read this blog who deal either in homebrew equipment, or with breweries, so if you guys want to run any contests to promote your business let me know.

Get Free Stuff

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

Sunday I let you guys know that I had some cool Deschutes posters to give away and asked for some ideas. So far I have gotten no love in the comments. I know it’s only Tuesday, but still….. Actually I shouldn’t say no one has given me ideas. Ryan from EverydayQB thought it might be fun if I asked people to send in videos of themselves and gave everyone who submitted a video a poster. How does this sound to you guys?

If I do offer up one of these lovely posters would you guys be willing to send an a video of you and your friends/spouse/just yourself having a beer? The videos would be turned into a little amalgamation video of people who read this blog celebrating good times and great beer. I really like this idea, but want input from you to make sure it’s something I should run with.

The Mr. Beer Giveaway Draws Neigh

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

This Saturday is the day of the drawing for the Mr Beer. All those who made relevant comments on my blog since the giveaway have received an entry for each relevant comment posted, I will be away for the weekend, so the drawing will take place on the 23, and the results will be posted as soon as I can get ahold of the winner. If the person who wins turns down the prize I will redraw until I get someone who wants it. I will do a video of the drawing which will probably take place at the Mariners game on the 23rd. I will try to get it uploaded as soon as I can.84-lrg

OK, I think that’s all the details.

If you have any questions let me know in the comments. If nothing else it will gain you another entry.

Mr Beer Give Away

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

84-lrg1The Mr Beer give away is still going. For those interested you can still enter by writing a relevant comment to any post on this blog. The great thing about this is that you can enter as many times as you like this way. For every relevant comment you will get one entry in the contest.

Starting today though there’s another way to enter. Send me an email at letting me know your favorite beer related story. Granted you can only send one story, but if you want to get multiple entries using this method then get a friend to send one in, and have them mention that you told them about the contest, also make sure they put your name and email. If they just put Rick told me then that would create issues since I don’t know who Rick is nor how to contact him. If you get a friend to do this then you will both get an entry.

Please keep in mind that by sending me your story your giving me permission to post it on my blog. I may not use any of them, but if there are some great one I’ll post them, with full credit to the sender of course. This means you probably shouldn’t send me a story about the time you got drunk and did something illegal.

84-lrgThe Contest

Seniõr Paul has come through in spades and has gotten a Mr. Beer to give away on this blog. For those unfamiliar with Mr. Beer check this google page for it out Mr. Beer Premium Edition Home Microbrewery System. Mr. Beer is a great way to get into brewing without the cost or research. It comes with a small fermentor, a kit with I believe pre hopped malt extract, yeast, and bottles that don’t require a capping system. While this doesn’t offer the variation and control of the beers you can make with a proper brewing setup it still can make fairly passable, and even good beers depending on the kit. I know passable isn’t what a beer snob would prefer most of the time, but hey, it’s free, and it’s made by yourself. Anything as cool as that?

The Details

Now we get to the details. The contest starts today, and will continue until May 23rd. Why May 23rd? Well I want as many people to enter within a reasonable time as is possible. Well it also is my birthday, and it’d be cool to give it away then. So how do you enter? Well I’m going to take a page out of Ryan’s blog at Porsche Perfect. For those who don’t know about it Ryan is giving away an actual Porsche on his blog. Here’s the link Ryan has multiple ways to enter his drawing, and I think it’d be cool to do things that way. Here’s the catch though. I won’t give away all the ways at once. In order to find out you’ll have to check back. Also in case common sense isn’t your forte then just know you can’t win if you are not over 21, or of legal drinking age. I may not be giving away beer, but use your sense God gave you.

The Way In

This weeks way in is so simple a high schooler could win, if they were allowed to participate. All you have to do is leave a relative comment on any of my posts. Every relevant comment you make will get one entry into the drawing. Im probably leaving something out, but I’m writing this on Tuesday night, to post on Wednesday, and I’m tired. Oh yeah, if you get a chance check out Paul’s blog and get to know him at pacificpedaling. Paul is an awesome man who I’ve known since middle school.
