Lawnmower Beer Competition

Now, what is a lawnmower beer you ask? It is any pale beer, under 5%, you would crush after spending the day mowing the lawn. These beers will be judged at the Pig Roast on Saturday, June 26 in a popular vote. Instead of a pairing this year, I am just going to ask you to pour your beer BUT you may want to find a way to sweeten the pot a little to entice people to drink your beer. You may want to have some food or pictures of your dog or neatly folded $100 bills (jk, no bribing allowed). The top three vote-getters will place in the competition and the entry with the best name will get at least honorable mention. If you have the best name and happen to place in the comp, I will pick the second-best name and they will get honorable mention instead and you will live with the pride of knowing you had a better name.
