With our production of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth taking The Rep MainStage in September, we have teamed up with the popular brewery to create a special beer for the dark drama– a Scottish Red Ale with a small inclusion of rye that adds spice. And guess what? We need your help naming it!
Starting Monday, Aug. 17, The Rep is launching its Macbeth Beer Naming Contest, where we will be accepting entries for the special beverage.
With a reddish hue that pays tribute to the battles of Macbeth, it’s a malty, full-bodied beer that is easy to drink.
After we chose our top five favorite names, then, you, the fans, will vote for your favorite! The winner will receive a growler of the beer and a pair of tickets to see Macbeth!
Here is how the contest will work:
1. Submit your awesome beer name from Monday, Aug. 17 to Friday, Aug. 21.
2. Our top five favorite names will be selected and fans will be allowed to vote for their favorite on our Facebook page from Monday, Aug. 24 to Wednesday, Aug. 26. The name with the most ‘Likes’ at the end of the voting period will be the winner!
3. The winner will receive a growler of the beer and a pair of tickets to see Macbeth!
The special beer will be on tap at Stone’s Throw, located at 402 E. Ninth St., Little Rock, throughout the run of the show from Sept. 11-27 and will also be incorporated into a special ice cream flavor created by Loblolly Creamery. The ice cream will be sold at Loblolly Creamery, located inside the Green Corner Store, 1423 Main St., Suite D, Little Rock, and at The Rep throughout the run.
Don’t miss your chance to try this one-of-a-kind brew celebrating one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies and get your tickets to Macbeth online or by calling the Box Office at (501) 378-0405.
