Beer lovers can enter a beer naming contest and win a chance to brew
[FORT COLLINS, Colo] United Way is co-hosting a beer naming contest with Odell Brewing Co. to encourage community members to volunteer. Cheers to Volunteers is an annual United Way event, kicking off registration for Make a Difference Day (MDD) volunteer activities in October.
Beer lovers are encouraged to submit volunteer-themed beer names until August 21st. Finalist beer names will be voted on United Way’s Facebook poll from August 23rd-28th. The winner will be announced on August 29th and will receive two tickets to help brew the very beer they named.
"We are honored to be able to support United Way of Larimer County with our ability to make small batch beers. This fun collaboration helps us to engage community-driven beer lovers to get involved. They get the chance to name their own brew and spend the day with our pilot brew manager actually crafting the beer!" commented Karla Baise, Community Outreach Coordinator at Odell Brewing Co.
Make a Difference Day is the nation’s largest day of service. In Northern Colorado, it has become a part of the culture and expanded to a week long series of volunteer opportunities. Last year, there were 1,830 participants including individuals, workplace teams, church groups, and students.
“The power of Make a Difference Day is that the whole community really comes together and gives a day or a few hours,” said Erin Zimmermann, Community Impact Director at United Way. “This really has an impact; It makes our community a better place for us all to thrive, whether that’s a better playground for kids to play on, trails that are trash free, or a new coat of paint on the walls at a local non-profit.”
Below are the details for the beer naming contest:
The winner gets 2 tickets to a brew day at Odell Brewing Co. making the very beer that they named! Click here to submit a beer name. Brew day is September 1.
