DuClaw Announces Homebrew Contest Winner, and Another Competition to Pick a Charity

From the DuClaw e-mail:
Our H.E.R.O. ["Honest, Excellent. Robust. Original."] home brewing competition has come to an end and we have a winner! Ladies and gentleman, your H.E.R.O. is...
Peanut Butter Porter brewed by Tony Huckestein.
Tony’s Peanut Butter Porter will be produced by our brewery as a limited edition run of 22oz bottles and will be available everywhere that our beer is sold. And, in the spirit of being a hero, we are donating EVERY SINGLE PENNY from the sale of H.E.R.O. 22oz bombers to charity.
That’s where all of you come in, and all you have to do is point us in the right direction. Email the story of an organization or individual in need of a hero to hero@duclaw.com and we will donate ALL of the proceeds from this promotion to one of the causes that you recommend. Hero-up, and send us your stories!
For more information on the top 3 finishers in the H.E.R.O. home brew competition, or how you can help us help someone in need, check out Dave’s blog.
The charity outreach and contest concept sound terrific.  As for the beer, I'll reserve comment until I taste it--it sounds way too much like the cliche of a homebrewer desperate to brew a "different" beer by any means still drinkable.  (Of course, mass-market beer slaves devotees will say the same about many of our favorite fruit, spice, coffee, smoked, etc. beers.......)
