Breedlove Stringed Instruments and Deschutes Brewery are excited to announce Eric Stalker as the winner of the Breedlove Oregon concert guitar with custom Black Butte Porter inlay.  Singer/Songwriters were asked to write a song inspired by Deschutes Brewery’s flagship beer Black Butte Porter.  Fourteen submissions were received with Eric Stalker, Lucas Alberg, and Mark Ransom being named the three finalists.  They performed their songs this past Saturday at Bend Fall Festival for a panel of judges.  In a close vote Eric won by .25 of a point.  “All three songs were great but in the end we thought that Eric’s song really was the best at paying tribute to not only Black Butte Porter but this great area we live in,” said Colin Besancon, judge and Breedlove USA Brand Manager. Eric Stalker won the custom guitar and in a surprise to the contestants a Breedlove was given to the 2nd and 3rd place winners as well as goodie bags filled with Black Butte Porter gear.  How did Eric feel about is win?...
