Beer Naming Contest Gives Chance to Win a Free 6-Month Membership to The Rare Beer Club

Lake Forest, CA – 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.

To receive these special beers, join the Rare Beer Club™ online or call 800-625-8238 and be sure to start your membership by September, 2014 or earlier. 

About The Rare Beer Club™ and The Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club™:
The Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club™ offers four different options for consumers. From the very inception of our original domestic beer of the month club in 1994, we've focused on consistently providing three primary product characteristics: Quality, Variety & Freshness. And in that spirit, we now offer you four outstanding beer club options, each dedicated to those same principles. Our owner's favorite club, The Rare Beer Club™, features the finest the world of beer has to offer in limited-release, celebratory, artisanal beers from some of Michael Jackson's favorite breweries. Two different selections are presented each month in 750 ml bottles, often cork finished, and some individually tissue wrapped. Members experience bold U.S. and imported interpretations of Farmhouse Ales, Russian Imperial Stouts, Barley Wines, Belgian Abbey Ales, varied Imperial, Extreme, Strong Ale and Grand Cru offerings, oak-aged ales imparting bourbon and vanilla notes, and much more. Many selections are pushing the envelope of creativity, are not yet distributed in the U.S., and brewed such that they can be cellared and aged. More information is available at www.beermonthclub.com.
