Free beer for COVID vaccine: Samuel Adams announces incentive on National Beer Day and how to get free Coors Pure – USA TODAY
Here’s a fun promotion that’s timely given it’s National Beer Day Wednesday: Get a COVID shot and get a free Samuel Adamsbeer.
The beer brand released a new national TV spot “Your Cousin From Boston Gets Vaccinated” Wednesday “to help combat skepticism amongst drinkers with humor” and announced the #ShotForSam vaccine incentive program.
A couple of caveats: The free beer for the COVID-19 vaccine offer starts April 12 – National Beer Day is held annually April 7 – and is for the first 10,000 drinkers who “share evidence of their vaccination on social media” by May 15 or while supplies last.
A vaccine card or medical information is not required and the beer brand suggests showing an “I’m vaccinated” sticker or bandage photo with the hashtag #ShotForSam on Instagram or Twitter for a chance to receive $7 cash through the Cash App to cover a Sam Adams of their choice from their favorite local bar or restaurant.
The freebie is valid at all 369 Krispy Kreme shops located in 41 states and available “anytime, any day, every day for the rest of the year,” Dave Skena, Krispy Kreme chief marketing officer, told USA TODAY. No purchase is necessary but consumers need to show the vaccination card.
Molson Coors also announced Wednesday that it is launching its first USDA-certified organic beer, Coors Pure, nationwide and giving away free 12-packs to those who complete a run in the shape of a beer can through a rebate.
