Build a Menorah with Beer Bottles, Win a Contest from Schmaltz Brewing

For Chosen People who love the holiday season, it can be a conflicting time of year. Sure, the sons and daughters of Abraham like to shop and celebrate and raise of cup of good cheer as much as any goyim, but with red and green decorations everywhere you can start to feel a bit left out.

Schmaltz HE'BREW Beer has released its HE'BREW Holiday Gift Pack and it comes with a contest just for non-gentiles. Well, the gentiles can play if they want. Jews don't exclude. As the Schmaltz slogan says, "Candles won't be the only thing getting lit."

Starting December 3rd, pick up a HE'BREW Holiday Gift Pack or visit the Schmaltz Facebook page for full full instructions on "How To Build Your Own Beer Menorah."

Drink your holiday brews and use the empties to create the sacred symbolic lamp to light the eight holy nights. The key is to be as creative with your entry as possible.

Post a picture of your creation to the Schmaltz Facebook page. Selected

winners will get to choose from a variety of prizes - the full details

of what those prizes will be will be posted to the Facebook page on

Monday. L'chaim!

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
