Hey, Win This! Spring Newcastle Merchandise Giveaway (REVISED)

Hey, Win This! Spring Newcastle Merchandise Giveaway (REVISED)

Great jumping hop bines! In writing up this article, I totally neglected to provide the way to win this stuff! Wondering why I didn't get many entries!

So here it is: just like last time, all you have to do is leave a comment at the bottom of this article with a working email address. You can disguise it as something like "myname at myemail dot com" or whetever so spam robots don't harvest it, just my human eye. I'll pick a winner at random from all entries received before midnight, April 30. One entry per person. I'll pass along your email to the PR firm offering me this swag, and they'll contact you for your mailing address.


Last December, I gave away some Newcastle Brown Ale swag. The prizes were offered by Formula PR, Newcastle’s PR firm in the states. They have also been sending me samples of Newcastle’s seasonal ales to preview. So you know.
It’s time now for another giveaway to my readers. I will be picking one reader to receive this gear:

Newcastle Brown Ale Cooler Bag (pictured above) – A fitting and stylish way to make sure all your supplies and brews are kept cold and intact. A telescoping handle and wheels to make it easy to haul heavy bottles and ice. I have a rolling soft-sided cooler about that size, and can profess that they are indeed great for toting your beer around. It served me well though a couple of Dark Lord Days, though it’s currently filled with CD’s from my abbreviated stint as a DJ on WIIT radio.

Geordie SchoonerNewcastle Geordie Schooner – The official glassware of Newcastle, the Geordie Schooner ensures a perfect pour and taste every time it is served with the traditional Brown Ale or Limited Edition brews. It also has a laser etched nucleation pattern to help keep bubbles flowing.

Lest you think being seen with a big brewers’ swag will harm your craft beer geekitude, one of the last sets I gave away was won by Rodney Kibzey, the West Suburban homebrewer who twice won the LongShot competition and gotten his face on bottles of Sam Adams beer brewed from his recipes. So your reputation will be quite safe.
