With the 6th annual Zwickelmania celebration taking place tomorrow across Oregon, I’ve been dusting off and updating the Zwickelmania Bingo page I made last year, adding the new participating breweries and removing a few that aren’t on the Oregon Brewers Guild list.
Zwickelmania Bingo generates a Bingo card that you can print out and take with you on your zwickel-ing: for each brewery you visit (or beer style you drink, if you include those on there), mark that space off and try to get a Bingo—a complete five-space line vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. You know the rules!
If you leave all the options unchecked you’ll get a card with a random selection of breweries from all across the state. Or, you can select specific regions instead, and your card will be filled with only the breweries from the region(s). If there aren’t enough breweries to fill the entire card, then extra spaces will also be filled with some random beer styles to hunt down. And, of course, you can always add styles into the mix yourself by checking that box.
It’s all in good fun, and there are no prizes attached, sorry! But if you want to go social with it, post pictures of your finished Bingo card to Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #zwickelbingo and/or #zwickel14 (the OBG’s official hashtag for the day).
And, please be responsible and if you can, have a designated driver! Also in Portland, Eugene, Bend, and Salem there will be shuttles running as well that I would highly recommend using—you can get the details on the main Zwickelmania page.
