USA Today is collecting votes for its Readers’ Choice Awards, and South Jersey’s Forgotten Boardwalk Brewing Co. is in the running for best beer label.
The brewery’s 1916 Shore Shiver IPA label, inspired by a series of fatal New Jersey shark attacks in 1916, is up for the award. You can vote for the historic label here until noon on March 13.
Decorated with the headline “Man-Eating Sharks Infest the Atlantic!” the fruity, spicy brew reminds drinkers of the shark that caused panic the Shore.
It reads: In the summer of 1916, a shark haunted the New Jersey coastline killing four & injuring seven. While there is much debate over what shark was responsible, there is no question that the attacks found their way into pop books & films depicting one great white shark who made the shore shiver.
You can vote once per day, and the winners will be announced on March 17. The 1916 Shore Shiver label is currently in 7th place.
