Win a $25 gift card to Constant Spring for American Craft Beer Week

Thanks to Constant Spring for donating a $25 gift certificate for today’s Hop Notes giveaway. Read on to find out how you can win.

I’ll cut right to the chase on this post.  I’m giving away a $25 gift certificate that Constant Spring has donated for American Craft Beer Week.

So here’s your trivia question that you can email to me at Eric@EricStraderPottery.com: What is the name of the previous owner and the current owner of Constant Spring, and what brewery did I feature at my Hop Notes (Beer Nuts at the time) second anniversary party that was held at there?

Be the first to send the correct answers to my email address will win the Constant Spring gift certificate.

The Constant Spring has a creative contest going of their own for craft beer week. To enter, take a selfie at Constant Spring of you with your favorite spring drink. Post the picture to Twitter or Instagram tagged with #selfieCS. One winner, chosen at random from all entries, will receive a Constant Spring prize pack!

Also, Burger Wars kicks off tomorrow, and the Spring is one of the participating restaurants for Elkhart County.  There are eight contenders in Elkhart County, and the winning burger will go on to compete with burgers from surrounding counties.  The pesto burger is a favorite of mine.

The restaurant will be tapping Three Floyds Zombie Dust, and Victory Brewing Hop Ticket #2 will be only $3.

Here is the rest of their current tap list:

Flat 12 Bierwerks Milk Stout, and Walkabout Pale Ale

Bell’s Smitten, Oberon and Two Hearted

Greenbush Anger

Three Floyds Rabbid Rabbit

Lagunitas Undercover

New Holland Dragon’s Milk

Founders All Day IPA

I have had such great response with the trivia questions that I have dug a little farther into my beer swag for a few deserving individuals who missed responding with the correct answer by just a few minutes.  I have picked out some Brooklyn Brewing T-shirts and some brewery stickers as well.  And as always, enjoy a craft beer, and relax. 

Many thanks to all who entered for some great giveways.  I’m sorry for those who did not win, but there will be more opportunities in the future.
