The following is a press release from Tamarack Brewing:

As Senator Max Baucus testifies on behalf of his Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act on Capitol Hill, Tamarack Brewing Company today announced six finalists in its design contest for a new beer raising awareness of the landmark legislation.

The “Have Beer, Need Art” contest drew dozens of entries over the past three months.  Participants submitted possible logos for Tamarack’s Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Ale.

The ale, brewed with Montana malt, honey and spruce tips, will be ready for pouring on August 7.  That’s when Tamarack will announce the contest winner during an event with Baucus and other advocates of the Rocky Mountain Front.

Baucus made a powerful pitch for his Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act during a Senate hearing Tuesday.  The Montana-made legislation protects access, wildlife, and ranching heritage along the Front.

“There are few places on earth like the Rocky Mountain Front and Montanans want to keep it the way it is for our kids and grandkids,” Baucus said. “I’m determined to bring the Heritage Act to the finish line and I appreciate all the ways this contest is showcasing the Front and our world-class Montana craft beer.”

The winner of Tamarack’s “Have Beer, Need Art” contest will receive 12 engraved growlers of Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Ale, a $100 gift certificate to The Trailhead in Missoula, a framed print of the logo, and coasters, T-shirts and pint glasses featuring the logo.

Judges in the contest included famed Montana artist Monte Dolack and TV personality Randy Newberg, host of the Sportsman Channel’s On Your Own Adventures.
