Do you have rampant enthusiasm for the “cornerstone beverage of civilization” throughout the ages? Put more simply, do you love beer? Sixpoint Brewery is now accepting submissions for their popular (now third annual) “Beer is Culture” art contest and has upped the ante by offering free art museum memberships to the finalists, through which you can express your admiration for beer and its place in our world. Create any sort of art that captures the theme “Beer is Culture,” submit it to their Facebook page before April 30, and watch as fans vote on their favorites. Finalists, announced May 1, receive “unique prizes” from the brewery, as well as an annual membership to the art museum of their choice. The grand winner also gets his or her artwork splashed across the Sixpoint Facebook page for the next whole year. So take this opportunity to practice your art, let someone else promote you, and plan a few beer-soaked cultural Saturdays at your favorite museum.
