Vaccinated for COVID? Samuel Adams wants to buy you a beer. Here’s what to know
If you’ve been vaccinated for COVID-19, Samuel Adams wants to buy your first beer once you reemerge from quarantine.
The Boston-based company is sending those who’ve been vaccinated $7 through the Cash App so they can buy the beer of their choice for that first public sip.
The Shot for Sam campaign is an effort to help beer fans “get back to supporting the bars and restaurants they love” that may have struggled to stay afloat during the pandemic.
Starting April 12, post an image of your vaccine sticker or bandage to Instagram or Twitter with #ShotForSam and tag @samueladamsbeer.
But be sure not to post photos of your vaccine card — doing so could expose your personal information to scammers.
Samuel Adams will direct message 10,000 people with details on how to claim the $7.
You can also enter by sending an image of your sticker or bandage to firstname.lastname@example.org.
