CONTEST: Big Storm Brewing & William Dean Chocolates Team Up

Comments Off on CONTEST: Big Storm Brewing & William Dean Chocolates Team Up

Big Storm Brewing and William Dean Chocolates are joining forces to make a chocolate stout beer. William Dean is well-known as the chocolates featured in the popular film “Hunger Games” series. They are seeking help from the public in naming this new craft beer.

The partners describe the beer as a “toffee chocolate stout, the beer was crafted to intrigue the palate and invoke thoughts of chocolate covered toffee. A true work of art made from the finest ingredients, this stout pours black with deep garnet highlights. Flavors of sweet toffee and caramelized sugar pair together with a hint of rich, indulgent chocolate”.

People can come into the Big Storm taprooms to try the beer and get inspired. Names can be submitted directly to namethebeer@bigstormbrewery.com. Winner will be revealed on Thursday, November 16th at Big Storm Brewing.

The person who is first to submit the winning name chosen for this new beer will receive a private 8-person Big Storm Brewery tour, a tap handle for the new beer, a 20-piece box of William Dean chocolates and a supply of the new Big Storm-William Dean beer.

Entrants must be at least 21 years or older and names can be submitted until 10AM on November 13th.

William Dean will soon be releasing a chocolate and macaroon made with Big Storm beers as well.

As they say in District 12:

Rays Opening Day: Team Florida youth baseball team fundraises outside Fergs

Comments Off on Rays Opening Day: Team Florida youth baseball team fundraises outside Fergs

Ferg’s Sports Bar has been in St. Petersburg for more than two decades.

And they’ve been across the street from Tropicana Field since before the Rays called it home.

It’s a place to celebrate victories, drown the sorrows of defeat and find community.

In addition to the throngs of people inside Ferg’s on Opening Day, there was also lots of action outside.

Children and adults in bright orange baseball jerseys milled about on the corner of Central Avenue and 13 Street South.

They held signs and batting helmets filled with bills, mostly ones and fives.

"We are raising money to go to the international World Series in California," explained 8-year-old Hampton Johnson.

The children are players on Tampa Bay area-based Team Florida, ranked number one in the nation for 8-year-olds in the United States Specialty Sports Association.

This travel team and their families devote thousands of dollars, hours and miles to baseball.

“It’s just the sport I’ve loved, from the beginning," explained Johnson.

The parents, meanwhile, say there’s a lot more to it than baseball.

"It’s like a family," said mom Tammi Dial.

Similarly, the funds Team Florida raised today are for more than just to help subsidize a trip. They’re meant to help subsidize their dreams.

“I think [baseball] is a great experience for my life,” said Zackary Dial, Tammi’s son.
