And They Lived Happily Ever After

For that perfect day
March of the Kegerator
was the only way

Written by Captain Hops.

References: On a couple occassions earlier this summer, I mentioned the great Kegerator Giveaway of Summer 2007. Essays were solicited to explain why the entrant was the most deserving of a brand new kegerator with a free kegerator as the ultimate prize. Well the winner has been announced and the essay is well deserving. The winning essay is called The March of the Kegerator. Congratulations Patrick – on the wedding and the win!

A new Kegerator Giveaway contest will be announced later in September. Stay tuned.
