I thought when I pitched a competition, I'd have a ball seeing all the entries. But I guess the kickoff was weak so only two friends took a shot. Still, the goal was achieved, and two strong entries finished in a tie, which means only one thing: a shootout to determine the winner! I'll line up the shots and then drink them, and I'll declare myself the winner and hoist the cup in the end.
Here are the two entries, both of which will grace the bottles of my new brew in time for the opening game broadcast of the World Cup. First, only because I received it first, is Gene's entry.
It's based on the FIFA World Cup 2010 logo, cleverly updated for the topic at hand. I've modified it further to include the only thing that's clearly missing:
Then there is Jen's entry. You may recall that she originally suggested Dudley's Old Peculiar as the name of the batch, but that turned into Dudley's Old & Peculiar. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to take that as an insult or not. In any case, the label is definitely good enough to put on the bottles, and it probably describes both the beer and the brewer.
So there you have it. Inbounds Ale and Old & Peculiar.
