Chanukah 2012 is right around the corner, and this year Chosen beer nerds have many reasons to celebrate, not the least of which: Shmaltz Brewing Co. is once again holding its annual Beer Menorah Contest, and you can win a number of prizes from the brewer simply by pounding a few brews and then constructing a menorah out of your empties.
Shmaltz is pushing its Limited 2012 Holiday Gift Pack, which comes with eight different beers, a special glass and Chanukah candles, as part of the Beer Menorah Contest. And the gift pack comes with some basic instruction on how to get started. Once you’ve completed your holiday beer masterpiece, you simply submit images to Shmaltz via email (BeerMenorah@shmaltzbrewing.com) or on the brewer’s Facebook page. And Shmaltz’s Facebook “Friends” will then vote for the best submissions.
Shmaltz hasn’t specified the prizes that can be won, but it stands to reason that pint glasses, tshirts, bottle openers and all the usual beer tchotchkes will be on the list.
