Grand Rapids, Michigan - June 14, 2013 - Tickets to Grand Rapids Winter Beer Fest can be hard to come by, but some creativity, color, and a blank sheet of paper could put two precious passes into the hands of a talented individual. The tickets, which are good at any one of the state festivals sponsored by the Michigan Brewers Guild, are a part of the grand prize in store for the winner of the Beer City Coaster Contest. The grand prize also includes an overnight hotel stay and a VIP brewery experience at Perrin Brewing Company.
Perrin Brewing Company and SpringHill Suites North developed the coaster design contest to inspire local artists and to celebrate Grand Rapids as a brewery destination. The winning artist will have their design printed on coasters and served with drinks at Perrin Brewing Company during the timeframe for ArtPrize 2013. There are only a few weeks left before the submission deadline. Entries will be accepted through July 26. To enter, contest information and entry forms can be picked up at Perrin Brewing Company, 5910 Comstock Park Dr. in Comstock Park, or through the Beer City Coaster Contest Facebook page.
Finalists will be announced July 29 and then the public will be able to vote for a winner at Perrin Brewing Company through August 18. The winner will be announced at an event hosted by the SpringHill Suites North.
