While the suggestions have been absolutely streaming in for the first beer blog contest of 2009, I have been trying to figure out what the subject should be. What will capture the moment? Worry no longer as I have made the call - I have decided that I want a photo or other depiction of your favorite beer drinking vessel. Why so? Why now? Lately, Knut's camera work has been hitting a high with the picture from this post last week sparking a Pavlovian response within me. Then this morning Pete posted this great shot of two pewter tankards from a pub in Brighton - though it suffers a bit from "focus on a point beyond" syndrome. But that can work, evoke the moment of a slight daydream.
This is going to be an all media contest. You can write a haiku, send a snapshot or write an essay. Heck, you can take a glassblowing course and send me an example of your work for all I care. The prizes will shower upon the best. Now I just have to drum up a pantheon of perks.
