Come celebrate the unveiling of the 1st Annual “No Crybabies” Limited Edition Growler Design Contest.
Monday, December 3 at 7pm at aromas [craft works] in Five Points (otherwise known as Aromas Wine Bar).
Yep we did it! It wasn’t easy because we had a lot of terrific submissions. But we’ve selected the 3 finalists, which of course includes the winning design. To all of the honorable mentions, thank you for taking the time to come up with your own original idea.
As a matter of fact, the 2012-13 Limited Edition Growler is already printed and in Athens. We invite all contest participants to celebrate with us.
We’ll have $1 drafts, a specially tapped keg. Bring your friends for a casual but fun evening.
Remember, the winning entrant will receive a cash prize of $300, a $100 Gift Certificate to Five Points Bottle Shop or 5 Points Growlers. The two second-place winners will each receive gift certificates with a $50 value to be used exclusively at Five Points Bottle Shop or 5 Points Growlers. Each of the 3 finalists will receive a swag bag.
All contest participants will receive a free (but empty) Limited Edition Growler to take home.
SEE YOU THERE!
The purpose of the first Annual No Crybabies Growler Art Contest is to recognize the artistic achievements of area artists through the fun and exciting world of craft beer. The Art Contest is open to artists in the Athens Area.
The fun of it is to be able to take the Crybaby by itself (without the Bottle Shop circle or background if necessary) and put it in any situation or setting that might warrant crying, but, of course, would not be allowed. Like depicting the Crybaby dangling over a pit of hungry alligators. Colors of the Crybaby can be changed also.
