Shmaltz Beertography Contest Part 2

I bet you all thought the sun had set on the Shmaltz Beertography Contest, didn't you? Well if you caught our teases last week you may have had an inkling that we're not quite done just yet. Shmaltz and Beertography are proud to present the Shmaltz Beertography Contest Part 2! The Sequel! The Return! Reanimated! Strike Back! Additional Sequel Reference! 

This time out, it's going to be a winner-take-all event. That's right, there's only going to be ONE winner so you have to pull out all the stops to get Shmaltz to pick your photo!

You've probably already heard by now that Shmaltz Brewing Company will be celebrating their One Year Anniversary at their shiny new brewery in Clifton Park, NY on May 17th. Here's the official description from Shmaltz:

Join the Beer Gangs of New York on May 17 at the Shmaltz Brewing Company in Clifton Park, NY for our 1st Anniversary Bash! Last year we cranked up our new 50-Barrel Brewery and now we are ready to celebrate what we’ve accomplished in twelve short months! Friends, neighbors and craft beer connoisseurs will be treated to a rare offering of barrel aged casks of Death of a Contract Brewer. Revel in the ultimate beer experience with a delicious selection of core and barrel-aged Shmaltz libations and special offerings from gangs of our favorite brewers from around New York State. Rock out to the smokin’ hot talent of Brookyln's own WORKOUT. Feast on the savory selections from a round up of local food trucks! 


If you're in NYC, we've got you covered. We have a charter bus leaving from 514 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn at 9 am on Saturday, May 17. The bus will depart from the brewery at 5:30 p.m. Cost is only $50 including the cost of general admission to the party.

Our anniversary + you = the party of the year!

So let's see: amazingly rare Shmaltz beer, other great beer from around NY state, awesome music and a bunch of food trucks? Sounds like perfection to us. Oh and plus you can catch a ride on the bus from Brooklyn! What more could you want? 


So what will the winner of the Shmaltz Beertography Contest receive? Well, if you are selected by the folks at Shmaltz to be the winner, you will get the choice of either 2 FREE tickets to the Anniversary Party on May 17th OR 1 FREE ticket AND a FREE ride on the Charter Bus that will be heading up to the brewery from Brooklyn. Not from around the East Coast? That's okay, we've got you covered as well! In the case that you win the contest and are unable to make the party, Shmaltz will send you an awesome swag pack. 

How To Enter

So how do you enter? All you have to do is post your photo entry to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #ShmaltzBeertography (make sure you spell it right!).
