Trim Tab Brewing Launch Party & Firkin Tapping Contest

17 January 2014 No Comment

Trim Tab Brewing Company will be hosting their official launch party at the pub on Friday, January 31st, and we are holding a contest to determine who will tap the brewery’s first firkin!

Trim Tab Brewing, Birmingham’s newest brewery, is putting the finishing touches on their beautiful facility on 5th Avenue South, and it is almost time to start supplying the craft beer lovers of our fine city with their tasty libations.  When the folks at Trim Tab told us that they wanted to hold their official launch at The J. Clyde, we were beyond excited.  The good news just kept on coming when they informed us that they will be tapping their first firkin of Trim Tab ale at this event as well!  Details to come on the launch party itself, but we had to come up with an idea to figure out who would be the lucky guy or gal to tap this inaugural cask and make their mark in Birmingham craft beer lore.  How does one properly bestow such an honor?

Then it hit us:  we are going to hold a writing competition to determine who will wield the hammer!  If you are interested in participating in this contest, the only rule is that your fictional or nonfictional story has to be hammer themed.  Are you a carny with a heart of gold who works the strongman hammer game at the fair?  Did you get into a street dance-off with MC Hammer in the 90’s?  Do you have an unhealthy obsession with Thor?  Wherever your mind takes you, we want to read about it as long as the story involves a hammer.  Once you feel confident that you have crafted a winning story, send it over to us at info@jclyde.com no later than Tuesday, January 28th at noon.  Our incredibly qualified panel of beer drinking bibliophiles will then review each entry and determine a winner.

We greatly look forward to reading many submissions, so all you Birmingham wordsmiths need to get to writing.  This is your chance to be a part of Magic City beer history!
