Don't miss your "shot" at a free beer!

Boston-based mega brewery Boston Beer Company (also known as just Sam Adams) wants to see Minnesotans back in their favorite bars and restaurants enjoying a beer and is now offering a reward to everybody who shows proof of a COVID vaccination.

Starting April 12, Sam Adams asks you to post a photo of your vaccination sticker or bandage (but not your vaccination card or other personal information) online and use the hashtag #shotforsam and tag @samueladamsbeer on Instagram or Twitter. You can also email your photo samadamssocial@bostonbeer.com. Then watch for a direct message (DM) from Sam! Selected participants will receive $7 through the CashApp for a beer at their favorite bar! If you don't have CashApp you can download it here.

The Boston brewery is promoting its giveaway with a new 30-second ad that features Sam Adam's comedic character "Your Cousin From Boston."

In the commercial, the Sam Adams character stands in line for his own shot (mistakenly pulling down his pants for a shot to the rear end when he reaches the clinic). Later, he's seen in a bar with friends, promising "Sam's on me!"

The promotion is open to U.S. residents over the age of 21. Ten thousand total prize winners will be selected to win $7 through CashApp each. The promotion will end May 15 or when 10,000 winners is reached.
