OK... maybe a bonanzette. But still, it was a happy surprise to received two emails today. In one, Jared, a brewer at Harpoon Brewery, confirmed that he had swung a selection of beers from that great Boston beer institution. It is a pick-up sorta gift but there is an opportunity to match beer with boy through the generosity of Harpoon and Jared's hard work.
In the second, Patrick Morrison, Circulation and Marketing Manager with All About Beer Magazine, wrote to offer a group of prizes and it looks like we have five full year subscriptions to the magazine. One will be added to the pool of prizes for the Grand Winner but we'll place another four in happy and lucky winners' stockings tonight. So, without further adieu, here are six more prizes in the 2009 Good Beer Blog Yuletide Photographic Challenge Royale:
|Holly Jane of Maryland for the photo "Last Call at the Englischer Garten" in Munich||A Subscription from All About Beer Magazine|
|Brian Parker of Audubon, Pennsylvania for sharing this incredible tattoo with the world.||A Subscription from All About Beer Magazine|
|Ed Gittines of Southbury, Connecticut for having a beer at the greatest place on earth - Fenway Park.||A Subscription from All About Beer Magazine|
|Scott Grenier of Clinton, New York because not one of you has ever considered the lonliness of the hop bine at dawn... or sunset for that matter.||A Subscription from All About Beer Magazine|
|Tim Connelly of Cambridge, Massachusetts because I can't get enough photos of Cantillon. I can get enough of their beer (other than gueze) but not photos of the place.||Selection of Beers from Harpoon|
|Chris Berry of Kanata, Ontario because that baby is freaking me out!||copy of The Beer Book from Stan Hieronymus|
That still leaves four more general prizes plus the Grand Loser and, finally, the Grand Prize Winner for 2009.
