2013 Blaze Easter Keg Winner – Jessica Rasmussen
The 2013 Blaze Easter Keg has been found. After almost a week of searching, Jessica stumbled upon the keg while scouring the south side of town. She is now going to be enjoying authentic German beer, for the remainder of 2013.
Lots of people set out in search of this year's keg - some even called in sick to work, it is that kind of dedication that keeps us bringing it back year after year. I would like to thank all of you loyal Blazers that set out in search of the keg, and if I could buy you all a beer, I would.
Jessica showed up to the Blaze studio this afternoon, lugging the 16 gallon keg up two flights of stairs. She was so excited to have found the keg. She was even more excited to have tomorrow off and a giant thirst.
She has won a prize package that includes 52 FREE growler fill ups at Bayern Brewing. That is one fill up a week, or she can cash in as many as she wants in one trip. That means, that if you ever hear of a barbecue at Jessica's this summer, you better make sure you are invited.
Jessica says she has never tried Bayern beer, and I am thinking we may have just introduced a match made in heaven.
