whitty and clever minds wanted
« on: November 12, 2013, 11:17:22 AM »
I knew that header would include just about everyone on this forum. I've been asked to submit a monthly column to our local paper about our club and brewing. I see it to encompass the whole beer culture in our area...club stuff, pub stuff, suppliers, how to's and lot's of brewers wisdom and humor.

I'm looking for some suggestions for the column header.
We are in Roseburg, Oregon. The paper serves Douglas County. The Club is the Umpqua Valley Brewers Guild.
We already have a blog called...."Brewburg"...Where beer lives, written by one of our members who is helping with the writing/editing of the column.

I love the Brewburg name a lot and may try to key off that somehow...

Dear Alewyfe

Let me know if you have any ideas that might be fun and cheeky.

Well, apparently Jim knows Roseburg. Free Beer would definately guarantee readership.
I do like Brewburg Connections and The Brewburg Hopinion. 

Not wanting to be too hopinionated, perhaps Brewburg Hoppenings should get the nod.

Ask Alewyfe.
With the last one you could wirte a fake letter each time and then answer it.  And in an ironic twist you could abbreviate it AA.

I've been toying with the idea of:

Beer Reviews from the Homeless Kids Outside the Beer Store


Basically I would give a bottle of beer to the homeless kids outside the beer store and come back the next day for the written review, add my commentary and voila! art! or something

Isn't there a Mayor Brewburg that was trying to outlaw pounders?

Shouldn't you be giving them some food too so they can give their thoughts on pairings?
