Like Paradox? Win Paradox!

CAPTION COMPETITION 33

It’s time for another internet-busting BrewDog Caption Competition!

Say funny things and win beer; it’s that simple. To celebrate the launch next week of our latest Paradox – aged in barrels from Compass Box whisky – we have a bottle of the amazing spirit in question to give away, plus some of our latest beer!

So if you think you’d be the kind of person to enjoy a few bottles of Paradox Compass Box and that bottle of CB’s Great King Street whisky, simply chip in below with a caption for this photo of our head brewer Bowman!

 

Happy Friday!

'I am Stewart Bowman! The rest of you will be spared. Go back to England, and tell them there, that Scotland's daughters and her sons made beer aged in barrels from Compass Box! Tell them a brand new Paradox is free!'

Little did Bowman realise, whilst making the particle fusion barrel for latest brew, he had also recreated the Hadron Collider.

When you're standing tall, two beers proudly in hand, with an epic cacophony of hops and malts exploding around your head. Then, you know your job might just be just a little batshit crazy.

Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others threw hops they had harvested in the fields. Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted: Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Dog!(Mark 11:8-9)

Ole P 13.03.2015 @ 4:10pm
And Bowman came down from the fermentor, carrying not two stone tablets, but bottles. They contained all the teachings and joys one needs. Glancing upon this glorious sight the people immediatly cast away their golden piss beer and fell to his feet. It is said that in that very moment the majesty defied gravity itself, letting grains and hops soar beside him like the dreams of the people.
