Food on a stick.  Carnival rides.  Animals.  And this year - a beer that could be named by you!  As the weeks roll by and the Minnesota State Fair gets closer, the brewers at Summit Brewing are gearing up and preparing a specially-crafted ale to cool off fair-goers - and, they would like your help giving it a name.

Enter Summit's Craft The Name Contest to give a personification to the beer they're making.  To send your submission, just send an email to with your name, phone number and address, and the name you're proposing for this new beer.  Summit will narrow down the submissions and then let the general public vote via social media platforms.  If you win, you'll get the chance to brew the beer with Summit's Head Brewer Damian McConn;  Later, you'll be invited back to sample the results before anyone else has the chance to.

If it helps, here is a little bit about what's going into the beer - giving you an idea of what it would taste like.  The beer will sourced from ingredients from Minnesota - from the malt and hops to the barley - even the strawberries;  that's right, they said strawberries - which will provide a unique taste to the ale.
