Rogue Beertography Contest

Introducing our biggest beertography contest yet! We've partnered up with Rogue Ales & Spirits to bring you the Show Us Your Dead Guy Social Media Contest. For the entire month of October, we'll be looking for your unique experiences with Rogue's Dead Guy Ale. 

Dead Guy Ale was conceived in the early 1990s as part of the Mayan Day of the Dead celebration at an Oregonian pub. Not your typical Maibock, Dead Guy is brewed with Rogue’s proprietary Pacman yeast and it’s gone on to become the most iconic Rogue brew. So you’ve probably heard of it and its counterpart Dead Guy Whiskey. We think you’ve probably got a good story about it too. Maybe you climbed a mountain with it or got a tattoo in honor of it. Maybe you’ve had it as part of a Dia de los Muertos celebration or dressed up in a Halloween costume that was inspired by Dead Guy. Maybe you found it in some far-flung location, had it in an unusual place for the first time or heck, maybe you named your child after it. We’ve heard it all. And now we want photographic evidence.

We want to see your Dead Guy stories. Tweet, Instagram or post your #MyDeadGuy photos to Facebook using the hashtag between Oct. 1 & Oct. 31 and you could win your face on a Rogue Ales bottle.

 How to enter? Starting Oct. 1st …

– Tweet the photo that tells your Dead Guy story with hashtag #MyDeadGuy

– Instagram the photo of your Dead Guy story with hashtag #MyDeadGuy

– Post your Dead Guy story photo to Rogue Ales & Spirits Facebook page with #MyDeadGuy

– Or enter here:

We’ll pick 1 grand prize winner and 2 runners up who will get some Rogue goodies. More details to come on October 1st so stay tuned.




Beertography's 6th Anniversary Contest

Today marks the 6 year anniversary of the birth of Beertography. I can't believe how quickly the last six years have gone, it's pretty insane. To celebrate, we're throwing a good ol' fashioned Beertography Contest!

The rules are simple. All you have to do to enter is post your Beertography on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #beertography6th. That's it! The winner will receive a #beertography shirt. 

We'll keep the entries open until Monday. So get to work this weekend!


Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays everyone! Here's a recently submitted reader's photo of what  can do with the fizzy yellow macro lager. The tree is made up of 732 beer cans including Coors, Bud Light, Busch Light, Miller Light, Budweiser and Busch Heavy. It took the three of them about two months to drink all of the beer (with occasional help from a couple friends). Ah, college! 


Barcade Crawl II - Saturday 10/18

In case you haven't seen BrewYork's post yet, I want to officially invite you on the most epic beer and gaming crawl of your life. If you've been reading for a while, you'll remember that back in December 2011, BrewYork and Beertography teamed up for a Barcade Crawl. At the time, it was to celebrate the opening of Barcade Philadelphia which was the third location to open. Flash forward to present day, and we have the FIFTH Barcade opening Thursday October 9th. Guess where we're going with this?

Yes, we're going to all five Barcades in one day. Let me just write that out one more time. We're going to ALL FIVE BARCADES in one day. Philadelphia, Jersey City, Chelsea, St. Mark's and Brooklyn - ALL via public transportation. 

Thankfully, Chris of BrewYork really knows his public transportation and figured out our whole itinerary for the day:

- 9:00am: Meet at New York Penn Station by the NJ Transit ticket booths; purchase joint NJT/SEPTA ticket for 9:15 departure to Trenton/Philadelphia (don’t be late!)
- 11:45am: Arrive at 30th Street Station Philly; take Market-Frankford Line to Girard (three block walk to Barcade Phily)
12:00pm: Arrive at Barcade Philly! (Lunch available)
2:15pm: Leave Barcade Philly, take Market-Frankford Line to 30th Street Station
2:30pm: Arrive at 30th Street Station Philly; purchase joint NJT/SEPTA ticket for 2:49 departure to Newark Penn Station
5:15pm: Arrive at Newark Penn Station; take PATH to Grove St. (three block walk to Barcade Jersey City)
5:45pm: Arrive at Barcade Jersey City! (Dinner available)
- 7:15pm: Leave Barcade Jersey City; take PATH to 23rd St. (one block walk to Barcade New York)
7:45pm: Arrive at Barcade New York!
9:15pm: Leave Barcade New York, take N/R Trains to 8th St.-NYU (two block walk to Barcade St. Mark’s)
9:30pm: Arrive at Barcade St. Mark’s!
11:00pm: Leave Barcade St. Marks, take L Train to Lorimer St. (three block walk to Barcade Brooklyn)
- 11:30pm: Arrive at Barcade Brooklyn!

Yes, that's a long day. But it's going to be a lot of fun. It's all about staying hydrated, pacing yourself and enjoying the scenery. If you don't feel up to hitting all five locations, then by all means - meet us at any of them and come to as many as you can! 


Barcade St. Mark's - Opening Tomorrow 10/9

Well how about that? Less than a year after the opening of Barcade Chelsea, here we are celebrating the grand opening of Barcade #5! That's right FIVE Barcades now exist. It truly is becoming a Barcade empire. This location is in the infamous East Village of Manhattan, on St. Mark's Place no less. 

If you're familiar with any of the other four Barcades, this location is definitely a bit different. A bit more narrow with a different overall motif. With a short descent heading down to the bar as you walk in, it comes off a bit more of a basement arcade. With 20 American Craft Beers on tap at all times. One thing of note: no hard alcohol at this location - this was to appease the concerned local community board. But if you're like us, that won't matter - beer me please! 

The exterior is still awaiting the patented Barcade sign, but just look for the entrance next to the St. Mark's Karaoke sign. 

Another big difference with this location is the games. With their fifth iteration, Barcade has finally acquiesced to the thousands of requests they've gotten to include 90's fighting games. Among the highlights for me being Mortal Kombat 2 and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 which I remember spending many a quarter on back in the day. 

This Barcade will have food available as well, just not right away. They open officially TOMORROW Thursday 10/9 for beers and gaming! Check out the slideshow below for additional photos:
