Free Beer for 200K People if 70% of Americans Are Vaccinated by July 4
Brewing company Anheuser-Busch announced today that it would give every American a free beer, if 70 percent of the adult population get at least one coronavirus vaccination by July 4.
As part of Anheuser-Busch’s “Let’s Grab A Beer” initiative aimed at playing an active role in the country’s recovery and making the moments that we come together over a beer even better, the brewer will offer its biggest beer giveaway ever to give eligible adults another reason to get their vaccines by July 4th. When the nation reaches the White House’s goal of 70% of adults partially vaccinated, Anheuser-Busch will buy America’s next round of beer, seltzer, non-alcoholic beverage or other A-B product, which includes over 100 brands. Currently the vaccination rate is at about 63%.
To get the free beer, adults 21+ simply need to upload a picture of themselves in their favorite place to grab a beer, whether with friends at their favorite local bar and restaurant or with family in their very own backyard, at MyCooler.com/Beer to enter to receive a beer on A-B. The prize is actually a $5.00 virtual debit card and is limited to the first 200,000 people that respond when the vaccine threshold is reached. You can see the full details of the promotion here.
Other businesses and states have introduced their own giveaways to encourage vaccinations. West Virginia is giving away guns, trucks and lifetime hunting and fishing licenses. Other states, including California, New Mexico and Ohio, have started lottery drawings. NJ was giving away beers to everyone who got a vaccine in May.
