Our friends over at NextFab and Yards Brewing Company are throwing down a gauntlet of crafty and beery proportions. As part of the 2013 DesignPhilly Festival, they’ve challenged you, the lovely creative denizen geniuses of Philadelphia, to create the most brilliant and wonderful tap handles you can possibly muster.
But what reward could possible be bestowed upon the lord designer of all that is grab-able for the dispensation of deliciously bitter beer? How about an afternoon in the Yards Tasting Room, $200 Gift Card from Yards, a six-month membership to NextFab, an entire Yards outfit, and a ruby encrusted crown that dispenses liberal amounts of beer into your favorite glass with just a clap of your hands. Okay, we made that last one up, but those prizes are still worthy of making any fan of hops and barley drool.
If you register for the contest before August 9th, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win tools from NextFab. Maybe they’ll help you to craft and hone your tap handle into the one you dreamed about last night after 8 pints of Philly Pale Ale.
Submission deadline is August 27th and the final selection by public vote will be held at a special gala event at the end of October celebrating all things beer and maker in Philadelphia.
This contest is for all the people that have experienced those nights of alcohol induced creativity. It is time to put that creativity to work to create something beautiful and oh so useful to dispense some of the beers that have made Philadelphia such a great place to have a drink.
