GREETINGS COLORADO! It's that time of year again. 

For the 7th year, Breckenridge Brewery is tasked with the high honor of brewing the official beer of Denver Comic Con. And, once again, we will open it up to the fans & participants of Comic Con to decide what we should call it. The renowned beer naming contest takes place this week on all of our social media accounts. 


CONTEST DETAILS:

Fans can submit any and all ideas for naming starting 12 noon Wednesday, 3/21 through Sunday, 3/25 at 9pm. On Monday, 3/26 all name submissions will be narrowed down to the Final Five - and every one will have a chance to vote on the winner. Voting closes Thursday, 3/29 at midnight. Champion winner and official name will be announced Friday, 3/30 along with the local comic book artist that will illustrate the beer name featured on this year's custom DCC pint glass.

THE BEER:

This year's beer-that-shall-be-named is a Raspberry Witbier. A time-honored, Belgian-style ale with a tart pink twist. Brewed with unmalted wheat, orange zest, coriander and fresh raspberry puree, this unfiltered, light-bodied beer has fruity notes of raspberry & citrus, a touch of spice, and a pink blush of color. Refreshing. Surprising. Sprightly. Whimsical. 

It's going to be an awesome beer with an even better name. We can't for DCC2018!
