Corvallis Beer Week: Craft Beer Spelling Bee

Celebrate craft beer, cider and mead throughout beautiful Corvallis, Oregon!

Nectar Creek and Corvallis Beer Week are proud to present the Craft Mead Spelling Bee hosted by Jimbo Ivy at Nectar Creek Taproom!

Nectar Creek will be going by a modified Scripp's National Spelling Bee format.

  • They'll allow a maximum of 30 contestants so get there early to sign up (beginning at 6 p.m.).
  • You're allowed one misspelled word. On the second, you're out.
  • The contest starts with the first grade words, and works its way up to eighth grade words (there'll also be mead and apiary words sprinkled in).
  • Spelling is according to the official Scripp's Pronunciation guide and/or Jimbo's discretion as the night wears on.
  • You may ask for a definition, part of speech, place of origin, and a sentence demonstrating usage.

That's it! The bee starts buzzing at 7 o'clock prompt, so don't bee tardy. Everyone that plays will get a prize, but the winner and runner up will get secret, incredible prizes!  

Corvallis Beer Week 2019 is Sept. 15 through Sept. 21. See the Corvallis Beer Week Facebook page and our blog post for more information.
