2012 Moorpark Country Days Parade

Calling all brewery fans – the brewery needs YOU!

That’s right, we need you to help us participate in one of Moorpark’s time honored traditions, the Country Days Parade on October 6th.

Enegren Brewing company is excited to announce that they will participate in the parade for the first time. In preparation, Captain Chris drew out a quick sketch of what he wanted our float in the parade to look like.

So we started going through the checklist of all the things needed for the parade: “Mash paddle, check! EBC Delivery truck, check! EBC flags and banners, not check! Tank for back of truck, Check! Army of growler wielding fans, Not Check”

We knew how to get the flags and banners, but were a little unsure how were going to pull off an army of growler wielding brewery fans. That’s when we decided to scrounge around the internet for brewery recruiting posters from back in the early-mid 1900’s. Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time breweries have needed to recruit growler armies. As proof, we found these two brewery conscription posters from WWI and WWII.

Brewery Needs You

(The fine print: these might not be actual brewery conscription posters. These might be Chief Joe remembering his 8th grade Photoshop class.)

But seriously, the BREWERY NEEDS YOU! Stop on by the brewery to sign up to march with us and your growler(s) in the parade. All participants will receive $5 off 2L growler fills and $2 off 1L growler fills the day of the parade (limit 1 discount fill per marcher).

    The Rexes will definitely be there. \m/

  2. I love how “brewery” is misspelled on the second one! I guess while Chief Joe was remembering 8th grade photoshop, he was forgetting 3rd grade spelling.

    It’s the old English unabridged version of the spelling. Properly used as the subject of the pluperfect tense of the verb.

    Surprised you didn’t know that.

    Great Idea!

    Also, That second poster MUST be made into a ENEGREN Brewery t-shirt. Logo on the front.. poster on the back!
    It would be epic. Well, at least I would buy one.

    See you at the parade =)
