As tasty as some of the beers created by Quebec brewery Unibroue are, they may be almost as noteworthy for their awesome packaging. Names like Trois Pistoles and Maudite (Québécois for "damned," a reference to legendary lumberjacks who made a deal with the devil) are complemented by artwork that is often spooky, beautiful or both.
So when the Libertine Bar offered a pair of tickets for next week's Unibroue beer dinner for a City of Ate giveaway, it seemed appropriate to award them to an artistic reader. Tickets to the dinner, set for 7 p.m. Wednesday, February 23, are $50 apiece. But whoever comes up with the winning design for the menu to be used that night can snag a pair for free.
