It’s that time again! Time to enter the Denver Comic Con beer naming contest for 2017! As always, this contest is sponsored by the amazing Breckenridge Brewery. The exclusive DCC beer is one of the most fun and unique pieces of Denver Comic Con, and this year the mastermind behind the con beer could be YOU! Past cons have had amazing names like Hulk’s Mash and Snape-ricot (last year’s brew that I found particularly tasty), and I just know that some of you fine folks could think of some other fantastic names. So while you get your creative juices flowing, here are the contest details:
The annual “Name the Denver Comic Con Beer” contest starts March 21. This is the sixth year Breckenridge Brewery has brewed a special beer exclusive for Denver Comic Con (DCC). The 2017 DCC official beer is a Bohemian-style Pilsner. It’s delicate and well-balanced, light yet complex. Saaz hops, a classic pilsner ingredient, impart a pleasant, earthy aroma while giving spicy flavor characteristics and a crisp, dry finish. Past winners of the “Name the Comic Con Beer” contest are, The Fantastic Pour, The Caped Brewsader, Brews Wayne, Hulk’s Mash, and Snape-ricot.
March 21 – “Name the Denver Comic Con Beer” contest starts
March 23, 5:00 pm – Deadline for name submissions

To submit an idea for a name, comment in the section of this Facebook post here by 5:00 pm on Thursday, March 23rd. Check back on Facebook, Friday March 24th to vote for one of the four select entries decided on by Breck and DCC.
This year’s winning name will be illustrated by a local comic book artist and featured on this year’s DCC pint glass. The winner receives a custom prize package from Breckenridge Brewery that includes free beer for a year and a Denver Comic Con beer tap handle.
So get to naming, nerds! The hero behind this year’s brew could be YOU! And if you haven’t bought your passes for the con yet, be sure to get yours ASAP! Are you attending DCC? Let me know if you are, or your other convention plans in the comments!
