Name this brew and win 4 tickets to Wazoo beer fest

Tampa's own Cigar City Brewing is crafting a custom small batch brew for Wazoo, a fundraiser for the Lowry Park Zoo on Saturday, and the fan who picks the winning name for the beer gets four free tickets to the event, worth $70 each. The specialty beer is described by the brewers as "a refreshing German lager that has fresh strawberry aroma and acidity with big notes of vanilla and fresh whipped cream, and finishes with hints of sponge cake. It's a great treat on a hot summer day." Samples of the custom brew will accompany several of Cigar City's beers at Wazoo. The zoo has launched an online naming contest at www.lowryparkzoo.com/contest2 to pick a name for the new brew. Suggestions for the name may be submitted online until noon Thursday. A team of beer aficionados, including the brewers, will choose the winning name. The person submitting the winning name will receive four general admission tickets to Wazoo. The event runs from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Saturday at the zoo, 1101 W Sligh Ave. Tickets are $70 ($80 day of event), $25 for the designated driver. VIP tickets, which almost always sell out in advance and include early admission, access to an air conditioned lounge and animal encounters, are $100, or $50 for designated drivers. Tickets are available online at www.lowryparkzoo.com or by phone (813) 935-8552 ext. 276 in advance, or at the door the night of the event.
