The Rare Beer Club is collaborating with Fullsteam Brewery in Durham, NC to create this year’s Pints for Prostates/Rare Beer Club exclusive beer. Pints for Prostates raises awareness among men about the importance of regular health screenings and PSA testing through the universal language of beer and has been working together with The Rare Beer Club and U.S. craft breweries for the last five years creating inventive and exciting beers to help communicate their mission statement.
The beer will be featured in the club in September, 2014, coinciding with National Prostate Cancer Awareness month and will be named exclusively by the public, as anyone can submit names for the beers on the official contest page.
Fullsteam wants this special beer to truly celebrate their "plow-to-pint" mission, highlighting the diversity and beauty of North Carolina. To that end, they’ve crafted a Spruce Pine Gose, a piney, tart, and slightly salty beer, incorporating ingredients from the North Carolina mountains (spruce pine tips), Piedmont (winter wheat), and coast (Outer Banks sea salt). Contestants are encouraged to visit the brewery’s website to view other beer names to note the current voice and naming conventions used by the brewery.
Entering the Contest
Although the new beer will only be available to members of The Rare Beer Club, both members and non-members are invited to enter the contest, and submit up to three entry names for the new beer. The contest officially begins on July 3rd, 2014. Entrants will have until Friday, July 11th at 2 pm PST to submit up to three names. Finalists will be chosen by The Rare Beer Club, Pints for Prostates and Fullsteam at which time contestants, club members and the general public can vote for their favorite name. The contest winner will be announced on Monday, July 21st.
