I liked the idea of a colouring contest. You didn't. Bastards. So I need a new idea for my great* end of the year give-away.
Time for the return of the Protz Shield and Papazian Cup.
The Protz Shield is awarded for the best piece of fact-free history from a British writer. The Papazian Cup is the international equivalent. Find the dodgiest piece of research-light, pseudo-history published on the web, or even one of those old-fashioned book or newspaper things. And send it as a comment to this post.
The number of prizes will depend on the quality of the entries. And how pissed I am when I award them.
*If you think a book or two and perhaps a T-shirt qualifies as "great".
For a mere 25 euros, I'll create a bespoke recipe for any day of the year you like. As well as the recipe, there's a few hundred words of text describing the beer and its historical context and an image of the original brewing record.
Just click on the "Birthday Recipe" button below.
Guilt button - brewed my recipe commercially? pay me 100 euros. It really is the least you can do.
