As of this moment in time, there are more than 2,500 breweries in America, with a thousand more (and counting) in planning. It's a dizzying, yet delicious time be a beer drinker in this nation. It's tough to keep track of what you drank and where you drank it—until now.
This fall, the typographic geniuses behind 33 Bottles of Beer debuted The United States of Beer, a coast-to-coast beer-tasting map for your wall. Measuring 39 inches from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans and 25 inches from north to south, the wall-chomping gold-ink poster allows you to inscribe your favorite beer from each state, complete with its tasting profile. Consider it the world's best interactive art.
What's it cost, you wonder? Why, the average layman must pay $30. (Click here to peruse and perhaps purchase.) It's a steal, let me tell you. Know what's an even better deal? Free! And that's where the contest comes into play.
WHAT: Win the United States of Beer poster HOW: When traveling across the country, what's your favorite memory of drinking beer? Tell me in 250 words or less at: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line, write POSTER GIVEAWAY. WHEN: The contest is open until Monday, December 9, at 11:59 p.m. FINE PRINT: The winner will be announced on Wednesday, December 11. Then I will hurry to the Post Office in time for Christmas delivery.
