If you subscribe to the beer bucket list newsletter, you've seen some truly world class beers.
Barleywines, pilsners, sours, wheat beers – our contributors (Marty, Jeff, Anne, Stan, Christina, Hallie, Jake, Ashley, Sean, Tom, Lee, Peter, Josh) really pick the best of the best. But maybe you've been frustrated….
I'll admit it – many of the beers are hard to find. It can be torturous to stare at them in your inbox but know you'll never try them. Well now, maybe you can.
To give you a shot at that bucket list beer you've always wanted but have a hard time getting, we're holding a contest where the winner will receive one beer of their choice from the bucket list.
First a quick explanation of how the beer bucket list works because I know there has been confusion. There are 50 beers that the contributors and I have picked for the list. When you join the newsletter, which you can do at any time, you start at beer #1. The following week you'll get beer #2 and so on. That means at any given time, people are on all different picks, depending on when they joined the newsletter.
Here's how the contest works:
- You must be subscribed to the newsletter and have received at least three picks to enter (see #3 for an explanation).
- To enter, do 2 things. 1) Leave a comment below with one beer you would put on the beer bucket list along with a short description of the beer and why it belongs on the list. 2) Share the beer bucket list page with your friends. You can tweet it, share it on facebook, or even forward one of the bucket list emails. Just let me know in your comment how you shared it.
- The winner will be selected at random and they will pick their top 3 beer choices. We're doing top 3 because certain beers are hard to find for everyone, so this way we have some options.
- The deadline is next Friday, May 6th. I'll announce the winner at the bottom of this post and notify them. They will give me their beer picks and we'll send them one of the beers from their top 3 choices.
Important: Don't list your 3 choices in the comments because that spoils it for people who haven't gotten those emails yet. The winner will email their choices to me.
What if you're not a subscriber?
Don't worry, I'll do this again. If you're a subscriber but have received less than three picks then you'll just have to wait until next time, but at least then you'll have a larger selection to choose from.
Ok let's hear what beer you would add to the bucket list down in the comments, and don't forget let me know how you shared the bucket list page.
Update: We have a winner! Greg Hoffman was randomly selected to win the bucket list beer of his choice. Congrats Greg and thanks to everyone for playing along. Keep enjoying those Monday emails!
