Every year for the past six years, we’ve hauled our beer, our gear and our staff to Denver, Colorado to present our wares at the Great American Beer Festival. The GABF is the largest and one of the most prestigious beer competitions in the world. Each year the response to our festival booth and our beer grows, putting Short’s Brewing Company among the most popular at the festival (over 457 breweries and over 49,000 attendees!). We want to continue to return to Denver, and we want to represent Bellaire and all of northern Michigan to the best of our ability.
The expenses associated with this trip are pretty hearty, so to help buffer the trip expenses we’re selling a limited number of Short’s Supporter Beer Licenses.
Here’s how it works: Sponsors pay $150 to cover the cost of one entry and to qualify you for $1.50 beers for one year. Your year of beer starts on September 16th, 2010.
Here’s the fine print : Your “beer license” is for your use only. One sponsor = one license and
no sharing. $1.50 beers are for regularly priced pints only. No gourmet pours, bottles, etc. If you want less than a pint, you still gotta pay the $1.50. Mug club mugs and $1.50 beers don’t mix – you should probably pick one great deal or the other. Tax does apply. This sweet deal is non-negotiable and non-refundable. No bitching and no refunds if we change hours, stop serving your favorite beer, close the brewery, start selling bud light or lock the doors so we can tour with Ween. We’re working to give our biggest supporters a great deal on awesome beer, and to help us get to the GABF to blow some minds. It’s a win win deal, so help us keep it that way. No unnecessary headaches, yeah?
Ask your pubtender for a sponsor form . Only 50 spots available! We look forward to seeing your sponsorship for this year’s Beer Fest!
