Vote The J. Clyde Freshest Beer Bar in U.S. for a Special Founders Day Celebration

6 August 2013 No Comment

DRAFT Magazine is on the hunt for the freshest beer bar in the country, and The J. Clyde has been nominated as one of the 25 finalists!  With your help and votes, we have the chance to host a special Founders Day celebration with DRAFT and Pilsner Urquell!

DRAFT Magazine has joined forces with Pilsner Urquell to hold a contest and put together a Founders Day event you will not soon forget.   This contest is centered on Pilsner Urquell’s flavor being a delicate equilibrium of Saaz hop bitterness and triple decocted sweetness. This has made them absolute zealots about the craft of transporting, storing and serving beer – everything from proper refrigeration, clean pipes, and 8 degree Celsius glassware.  For this reason, DRAFT put out a call to their readers to nominate who they think are the freshest beer bars in the U.S.  After 2000+ nominations, we emerged as one of the 25 finalists!  If the pub happens to win in the final vote, this is what we (you and us) could be enjoying on November 8th:

  • 170 Liter Wooden Barrel of Unpasteurized Pilsner Urquell flown directly from the brewery in Pilsen, Czech Republic to the pub
  •  Attendance by Vaclav, the brewmaster for Pilsner Urquell in Pilsen
  •  Attendance by DRAFT Magazine Founder Erika Rietz
  • Tapping of the Keg Ceremony and Pouring Competition
  • Swag giveaways (shirts, hats, mugs, etc.) relating to Founders Day

We cannot thank you enough for getting us this far, but we need your help in this final push to win the opportunity to host this amazing event!  To vote, simply click the following link and choose The J. Clyde as your selection for the freshest beer bar in the country:


If you are feeling especially motivated to aid in our success, we would greatly appreciate if you share that link on social media and with friends/family/coworkers/etc.

Casting your vote can even get you some free stuff.  If you vote in real time at the pub in the presence of a bartender, server or manager, you will receive $5 off your check instantly.  To sweeten the pot even further, your vote also gives you the chance to win a premium Micromatic home draft system from the folks at DRAFT Magazine.  That’s a pretty sweet deal if you ask us.  Voting ends on August 31st.

Thanks in advance for your votes and any help you send our way.  It truly is an honor just to be nominated, but everyone here sincerely hopes we can win this thing so we can raise a glass of incredibly fresh Pilsner Urquell with our friends and patrons on November 8th!
