The rest of the Free Beer'd entries (a Creative Loafing contest)

We got so much entertainment value out of all the entries from the Creative Loafing contest a few weeks back that we must share them all. While Casey, the Head Brewer, may not have picked these to win a prize from the tasting room, the whole Coppertail team feels that some of these are pretty fantastic. Keep an eye out for your artwork and the potential for another contest such as this.

Thank you again to all of those who entered, we truly appreciate all of the art work and creativity that went into each drawing (or follicle placement).

Cheers!

Free Beer'd Winners (A Creative Loafing Contest)

Last week, our friends at Creative Loafing cooked up a fun contest where we all asked you guys to get a little artistic with Casey’s facial hair. The response was more than we could ask for and we are pleased to announce the winners. Check out these hilarious (and also very well done) renderings of our Master Brewer, Casey Hughes.

Winners of a growler and complimentary fill (left to right): Kristin Northrup, William Casey and James Branaman.

There were also these two amazing creations that we just couldn’t say no to. We all felt that the two below drawings were so great that we are offering these artists a free pint on us.

Honorable mentions (from left to right): Conrad Garner and Christian Dyer.

We appreciate everyone who participated and we had a great time reviewing each entry. There were so many great drawings that we truly had a difficult time deciding on just three winners. We hope to have another contest such as this one day in the future and can’t wait to see what else you guys can come up with.

Cheers!

Beer and Loathing

Things got a little batty at the Beer and Loathing in Las Vegas event this past Saturday evening. The overall event was a huge success thanks to none-other than Veronica from the Independent in Seminole Heights. Guests were greeted with tasty beer and an eclectic fare from local restaurants.

Our resident beer dude, Robb Larson, became a bit of a celebrity. Dressed as Dr. Gonzo, he advised guests try the Unholy Trippel, and they did (some of them a few times!). Guests really enjoyed getting their photo taken with him, if you have a photo with our Dr. Gonzo, please send copies to us at info@coppertailbrewing.com or tag us on whatever social media you posted them to, we would love to see them.

The entire Coppertail Gang had a blast and we wanted to show our gratitude to all of the awesome breweries and local restaurants, to Veronica for organizing such a fun event, the Tampa Theatre for hosting and to all of the wonderful people who attended. Those of you who came by our table in full Fear and Loathing attire made our night and we appreciate all of the positive feedback that you gave us on our beers. Cheers to you guys!

Good bye to new friends, we’re almost complete and brewing beer.

It was a bittersweet day at the brewery. The Coppertail gang said goodbye to Craig. Craig played a major role in making sure that we can brew beer, so while its a great feeling to be at the end of the road construction wise, it’s very sad to see Craig leave Tampa and head back home to Wales.

We said our goodbyes earlier today with a delicious treat of assorted cupcakes, including a Guinness cupcake, from Frostings Etc. in South Tampa, shared a few hugs, a few laughs and built a lifelong friendship that was formed over the last several months.

We are so appreciative of the hard work that Craig and the rest of the crews have put into Coppertail Brewing, it makes us feel special to know that this little idea of a brewery has touched so many people. The Coppertail gang are all looking forward to the day when Craig and any of the other crew members can come back and share a pint in the tasting room.

Cheers Craig, we miss you already. Come back and visit the gang in Tampa soon.
