Announcing Washington Wild’s Brewshed Logo Contest

Recently Washington Wild kicked off a new initiative called the “Brewshed” project. A Brewshed is the connection between clean, healthy watersheds and beer – because clean water makes better tasting beer. Watersheds are Brewsheds!

Connected with Brewsheds is the ”Brewshed Alliance,” made up of local Washington State breweries dedicated to the idea that clean water makes better beer. Watershed protection is necessary to ensure that local breweries will be able to continue making quality beer for generations to come.

Brewers who join the Brewshed Alliance pledge to know the source of the water that wets their beer, support actions that protect that source of water and host happy hour events with Washington Wild each year to help Washington Wild promote watershed preservation. In effect, they educate their consumers and supporters on the importance of protecting remaining wild lands and waters, not only for beer but for wildlife, clean water, outdoor recreation and future generations.

The Contest

As the Brewshed project grows, we need a logo to increase its visibility. 
As the Brewshed Alliance grows, we need a logo to identify members and Alliance initiatives.

This is what we are looking for in the design of the Brewshed logo:

  • Clean and modern 
  • Representative of the idea that clean water = better beer 
  • Convey continuity, from sources of watersheds to what ends up in your pint glass
The winner of this logo contest will receive a 
$250 cash prize from Washington Wild!
