Drink some beer, win some beer with #Calypsoface

The below competition is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered and congratulations to @estbook, @flowhisto, @danrobear and fettfanboy91 as monthly winners and @hopsandtails for being the overall winner! For the photos, go to the bottom!

It's not often that you can drink beer and win beer as a result. In fact, it might even be a first.

But that's what we're offering you, and what's more it's all in the name of "beer education". We love sour beer at Beer Merchants, but we know it’s an acquired taste. We’ve seen the screwed up faces and cries of disgust at even the aroma. But we’ve also seen eyes light up and pints quaffed quickly.

Because once you acquire that taste – and anyone can – it opens up a whole new world of flavours. From puckering krieks to quenching Berlinerweisses, there's more variety in sour beer than any other style and when we think about people missing out on it, well...it drives us to drink

So we’ve teamed up with Siren Craft Brew to launch #calypsoface, a competition that encourages people to try sours. We want you to find a pint or bottle of Siren Calypso and take a photo of you or a friend trying it for the first time. Post it on social media, tag @beermerchants and #calypsoface and it will be automatically added to our gallery here. Each month we'll pick our favourite who will win a case of Siren beer and merchandise. Then once the competition closes we'll pick our absolute favourite to receive a case of very rare, special beer. For more details and to learn about the beer, check out the video by the Craft Beer Channel.


Calypso is still available on BeerMerchants.com and at the following pubs, as well as many amazing pubs and bottle shops all over the country! Try it out and send us a picture like the below!
