Remember that bit I wrote awhile back about Wild Brew 2009? The one where I was stuttering backwards and forwards and every which way except straight ahead about what a great event is brewing this year?
Well, that little party I was talking about hatches this Saturday. It all starts with a patron hour at 4 p.m., with general admission kicking off at 5 at Central Park Hall at Tulsa Expo Square.
If you haven't snagged your tickets to the wildest party of local food and drink and some darned nice folks in Tulsa, Oklahoma, you'd better get moving, because time's a-wastin'.
Or, you could just keep reading.
One of the headliner guests at Wild Brew 2009 will be Eric Marshall, the brewmaster behind Tulsa's own hometown brewery, Marshall Brewing Company. Mr. Marshall will be bringing a number of his brewskies to this year's Wild Brew, including my personal favorite, the Atlas IPA.
While there's not much not to love about the favorite beer style of food (and, incidentally and according to my extensive empirical research, most foodies as well), Marshall's IPA is just as good for front porch sipping as it is for cutting the spices and oils of some of my favorite ethnic foods - Cajun, Mexican and hotter-than-hot Indian.
Some IPAs are just too, I don't know, confrontational for leisurely drinking. Not so with Marshall's. That lets me buy one or two fewer varieties of craft beer, which makes my wallet and my husband, who sometimes worries I drink more beer than he does, sleep somewhat easier at night.
Now, enough flowery talk about food and beer and more about that giveaway I mentioned in the title of this post.
Win your chance to taste a little of your own Marshall's Atlas IPA at this year's Wild Brew event by finding the correct answer to the following question:
What are the names of the four other beers brewed at Marshall Brewing Company?
Write the answers as a comment on this post. Feel free to tweet about the Wild Brew event to earn extra entries; just make sure to add "@tashadoestulsa" so I'll be able to see it, brightly and beautifully. The prize is a pair of tickets to this event of food and drink plenitude.
The contest ends Wednesday afternoon at 4 p.m. With the randomness of the integer generator at Random.org, I'll announce a winner that evening.
Good luck, all!
