Brrwhhhaargh … Brewer's Cabinet Wants to Hear Some Serious Dirty Wookie

Local brewery launches Wookie Growl impersonation contest to celebrate new Star Wars-inspired imperial brown ale

Calling all Chewbacca sound aficionados for a Wookie Growl contest. Enter for your chance to win a Star Wars prize package with the launch of Brewer’s Cabinet's new Dirty Wookie imperial brown ale. In the words of the great Yoda, “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”

Now through Dec. 5, submit a video on Facebook or Instagram enjoying a Brewer's Cabinet Beer and your best Chewbacca impersonation for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the opening night of "Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi" and a growler of Dirty Wookie from the new Brewer’s Cabinet tap room.

“Our Dirty Wookie is a truly fun beer with loads of personality. We’ve set out to create a rich, big and bold brown ale that seems to please just about everybody, and especially those with the best Chewbacca sound effects,” said Michael Connolly, owner of The Brewer's Cabinet. “With six distinct malts and generous late kettle hopping, the Dirty Wookie drinks very balanced with an amazing creamy mouthfeel.”

Available year-round and at 7.1-percent alcohol by volume, Dirty Wookie is an American-style imperial brown ale. Deep brown in color, this rich chocolate malt-dominated brown ale has loads of character. Conservatively hopped with northwest hop varietals, this is a big beer leaning toward malt sweetness over hop bitterness.

Wookie Growl Rules:

Submissions will run through Dec. 5. Participants must showcase their best Wookie impersonation and submit a video via Instagram or Facebook using #growlofthewookie #dirtywookie and #brewerscabinet. Six winners will be selected based upon management’s discretion (2 tickets each and 12 tickets total). Management reserves all rights to delete or hide inappropriate submissions. Winners will be contacted via messenger or email. For more information, visit
