Released each week for the remainder of 2017, the beers could lead to valuable prizes for the brewery’s customers
(Weeki Wachee, FL) — Marker 48 Brewing has introduced a new promotion that will offer participants a chance to win magnificent prizes at the end of the year, as well as pours of unique one-off beers throughout 2017.
Here’s how it works:
The Beers: Our Brewers and select guest brewers have committed to brewing 48 different small-batch beers, one new beer every week, for the remainder of the year.
These beers will allow our brewers and guest brewers to explore creative and experimental brewing — everything from sours to barrel-aged beers, and many styles in between.
The Promotion: Marker 48 is offering a VERY LIMITED number of Smallbatch Beer Books for sale. These books allow customers to receive one FREE small-batch beer per week or half-off bomber bottles of the week’s small-batch beers (when available).
The books cost $100 each and are on sale in the tasting room, Weeki Wachee, Florida. In addition to the 48 free beers, book holders will receive a stamp for each Smallbatch Beer drank.
The Prizes: At the end of the year those individuals who have all 48 stamps will get an exclusive Marker 48 Smallbatch Beer shirt AND a special 20 oz. glass to be kept in the brewery to receive core beers in for the same price as 16 oz. beers.
Depending on the number of stamps required, book holders will also be qualified to win end of the year grand prizes.
The prizes are:
10-25 stamps are qualified to win:
$100 Marker 48 gift certificate
Free passport book for 2018 ($100 value)
$25 BeckyJacks Food Shack gift certificate
$25 Florida Cracker Kitchen gift certificate
26-35 stamps are qualified to win all of the above, PLUS:
The chance to brew a small-batch beer with our brewers in 2018
36-48 stamps are qualified to win all of the above, PLUS:
A one-night stay with one guest, hosted by Marker 48, on a private island on the Homosassa River and a half-day fishing inshore charter with a guide captain.
You must purchase a Smallbatch Beer Book to receive the stamps and qualify for the prizes but you do not have to have a book to come in and order each week’s Smallbatch Beers.
Most Smallbatch Beers will be released on Wednesdays, though some with special treatments or other special brewing techniques may be released another day. Each beer is expected to remain on tap for a couple of weeks, though that cannot be guaranteed. Check the Marker 48 Facebook page or Twitter accounts for announcements on the releases.
The first beer in the series was released on Sunday, Feb. 5. “Peanut Butter and Jellyfish” is a treated blonde ale that come in at 5.5 percent Alcohol by Volume and remains available as of this date.
