The Microbrewed Beer of the Month and Rare Beer of the Month clubs had three exclusive beers brewed for club members, and now they are asking for help naming the beers.

And, if you’re lucky enough to name one of the three beers, you will get a free six-month membership to one of the clubs.

The three beers are brewed by Cigar City, the Bruery and Shmaltz.

20thpromologosThe Cigar City beer is described as “big (nine percent+ ABV) American IPA inspired by Cigar’s City’s Humidor Series Jai Alai IPA. The beer will be aged lightly on Spanish cedar and some spruce. It’ll have eight different hop varieties.

The Bruery’s beer will be a barrel-aged blend that comes in at higher than 15 percent ABV. It will be a blend of the Bruery’s Bois (Bourbon barrel-aged old ale), Black Tuesday (Bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout) and Smokin’ Wood (an imperial smoked porter. Cacoa nibs will also be used.

The Shmaltz beer will be a completely new IPA using Amarillo, Crystal, Cascade and other hops with “an intended juicy citrus, passionfruit and peach hop profile.”

All name suggests are due by April 7 at 2 p.m. PST. Three finalists for each beer will be announced on April 8 and entrants, club members and the general public will be allowed to vote for their favorites. The winners willb e announced on April 14.

If the name you picked is chosen, you will receive a six month membership to whichever club the beer is intended for.
