Saint Arnold – Scavenger Hunt & Texans Ticket Lottery And More
During these dog days of summer, we thought you would enjoy some activities to distract you. And all of the activities can involve frosty beverages from Saint Arnold!
WASHINGTON AVENUE SCAVENGER HUNT
If you haven’t been down Washington Avenue lately, you are in for a shock. That sleepy strip which used to have about 3 bars, all of them dives, has exploded into the hip place to be, with about 103 bars and restaurants, none of them dives, unless that is what they are going for.
To celebrate this growth in the area, we thought we would have some fun with a scavenger hunt, almost all of which takes place on Washington Ave. (We are throwing in one establishment that is about a mile & a half off of Washington to keep it interesting.) All correct entries have a chance to win a kegerator for their home! The kegerator is being provided by kegerators.com, so remember that website if you are in need of any home draft supplies. http://www.kegerators.com/
Here is how it works:
Watch the video that we have posted on our website and YouTube (if watching it on our website, it takes a minute to download, so be patient). The video will show specific objects with which you need to take a picture of yourself (i.e., have both you and the object in the same photo). All of the objects are in establishments where you can find good beer, and enjoying a Saint Arnold while on your quest will bring you enlightenment! (It makes us smile when you have a Saint Arnold in your hand in the photo.) Once you have found all of the objects and taken the required photos, you may either upload the photos to any of a number of photo-sharing websites (flickr, shutterfly, etc.) and send the link to [email protected] or print the photos and get them to us at the brewery. The deadline for us to receive the photos is Sunday, August 2 at 11:59 PM. (If you are trying to drop off photos at the brewery over the weekend, there is a little mail slot in our front door.) Make sure you include your name, email address and phone number. Only one person per photo so if a group of you are doing it, you each need to take individual pictures of yourselves with the objects.
All correct and complete entries that we receive will be sent an invitation for that person to attend a party here at the brewery. At that party, we will draw a name and award that person a home kegerator!
So here it is in summary:
The proof: Take photos of yourself with each item shown in the video.
Send us proof: Either upload photos to photo-sharing website and email the link to [email protected] or bring us the photos. Don’t email us the photos or else our server will probably crash.
Deadline: Sunday, August 2 at 11:59 PM
All Correct Entries’ Prize: Invitation to a party at the brewery.
Prize: A beautiful home kegerator provided by kegerators.com.
If you have any questions, please contact Lennie at [email protected]. Good luck!
TEXANS TICKET LOTTERY ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 13
This marks the return of our Texans ticket lottery. This is the chance to come sit on the front row of the Bullpen with us, paint your hair, heckle the opponents and cheer on the Texans! From these seats, you can see just how large Mario Williams really is (Answer: LARGE!) and even have the possibility of a Texan jumping into our seats after a touchdown. It has happened before!
Here is how it works:
We have 4 front row seats in the Bullpen. We use 2 of the tickets ourselves and have a drawing for the other two. To be in the drawing, you give us a $250 deposit prior to the drawing. If your name is drawn, you choose which game you want to attend from those still available (ie, the first name drawn gets to choose from all of the games.) You receive the two tickets and a parking pass for the Blue Lot, which is right next to the Platinum Lot where we tailgate. And we then keep your $250. We tailgate for all the games & want you to join us for this too. We provide refreshments. We will start tailgating 2 1/2 hours prior to the noon games and 4 hours before the Monday night game. If you are interested, please let us know. We will have a party at the brewery on Thursday, August 13 from 6pm – 8pm during which we will have the lottery. There are a total of 8 games (plus two preseason games that we will include if there is interest). You will need to be present at the dr awing.
Lottery Date: Thursday, August 13
Time: 6pm – 8pm (drawing probably around 7 PM)
Deposit for Texans tickets: $250 cash, check or credit card (if your name is not chosen for any games, obviously you will not be charged anything and cash and check will be returned – you just had a free party at the brewery).
Call or email Ann with your info ([email protected]) to RSVP. This event is only for those participating in the lottery. Please, one entry per couple.
OTHER FUN THINGS GOING ON:
White Linen Night in The Heights on Saturday, August 1
Come out and discover new places in The Heights and visit us at:
Buchanan’s Native Plants: 611 W. 11th St.
Hello Lucky: 1025 Studewood St.
Oolala: 833 Studewood St.
And remember that we have some smaller events that we only announce on Twitter.
And while we normally recommend enjoying our beers at a slightly warmer temperature, we have discovered that an Amber Ale served in a frosty mug (when that sheet of ice forms over the top) is delightfully refreshing when it’s hot out.
Oh, and you have just about drunk up the last of the Summer Pils. So when you see Oktoberfest showing up in the next week or so, that isn’t last year’s. This year’s first batch of Oktoberfest is being bottled today!
Thanks for your support!
