Welcome to the Sixth Annual Naming Contest for the Official Beer of Gen Con!


The naming contest for Sun King's Official Beer for the historic Gen Con 50 has begun! The Gen Con and Sun King teams need your help to come up with a signature name for an all-new, amazing brew. 

If you've never participated before, this naming contest will determine the Official Beer name for the brew created in collaboration with Gen Con and its Promotional Partner, Sun King Brewing.

Will your submitted names have what it takes to join former winners? Last year, 20-SIDED RYE rolled its way into our hearts. DRINK ON AND PROSPER ALE won in 2015, and the year prior, FROTH OF KHAN took the top prize and was named the official beer of Gen Con. In 2013, FLAGON SLAYER reigned supreme, and the year before that, the ALE OF DESTINY proved to be the toast of the convention. 

Help the Sun King team come up with the perfect name for this year's beer, and you can win the Grand Prize of two (2) complimentary badges to your choice of Gen Con 50 or Gen Con 2018. PLUS- $100 in Sun King Brewing Gift Cards and an official Sun King t-shirt. You'll have a lifetime of bragging rights and will be able to buy a can of a beer that you named.

Even if your beer name isn't selected, you still could win a great prize! All beer-naming finalists selected for the final voting contest will receive a $25 Gift Certificate to Sun King Brewing!

Before you begin, you must verify that you're able to enter this contest. Due to contest restrictions, naming is only open to US residents, ages 21 and older.
