For the first time, the Chicago Ale Fest will host a pretzel necklace contest! In the past we’ve seen people build elaborate edible necklaces, and we think it’s about time you got credit for your creativity!

This is how participants will be selected:

Be creative and use your favorite, craziest, and silliest ingredients to create your pretzel necklace before coming to the fest. We will give a ticket to the first 40 people who enter the festival with a crazy pretzel necklace - the ticket will be your pass to enter the contest.

The contest will take place at the stage at 4:30, and we ask everyone to show up there on time. The judges will be the Fest Yeti and the crowd. They will make their best decision to pick 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place out of the 40 participants.

What are the winners getting?

  • 1st place

    • 2 tickets to BeerHoptacular on September 28th, 2019 at Vertiport

    • One T-shirt from our Beer Gear boutique

  • 2nd & 3rd place

Pro-tip: In case you don’t know how to make a pretzel necklace, here are 5 simple steps to follow:

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

You’re going to need a few things. You’re going to need some pretzels and you’re going to need some string. Got it? Okay good. Pizza works too, but it’s messier, so you should probably just stick with the pretzels.

Step 2: Put The Pretzels On The String

This is the tricky part. Start by holding a pretzel delicately in one hand, then grab the end of a piece of string in the other. Then carefully thread the string through the pretzel’s natural hole and slide the pretzel into position. Did it work? Good. Now repeat until there are a lot of pretzels on the string.

Step 3: Start Over Because You Ate Or Crushed All The Pretzels

Be honest. You did, right?

Step 4: Tie The String

Tie it. In a knot. You probably learned this skill when you learned to tie your shoes but if not, here’s a little primer.

Step 5: Be Finished

That’s it! You’re done. You’re now ready to tackle Chicago Ale Fest.
