I’ve been watching the HBO doc on the McDonald’s Monopoly scam this week, and I’m feeling nostalgic for a good old fashioned sweepstakes, minus all the cheating and mob ties, of course. As luck would have it, New York’s Red Shed Brewery launched a great, non-mobbed-up contest for in-state fans this month called “Where do you beer?” and will be giving away a $750 Red Shed Brewery and Mohawk Valley prize pack. The concept is clever, as the contest site explains …
Something special happens when you crack open a can or pour a pint of craft beer. People come together. Family members, friends, neighbors, even strangers. Red Shed craft farm brews have a way of changing moments from ordinary to unforgettable.
Craft beer also brings back memories. One sip and you’re transported to silly instances filled with laughter and fun. Of events, celebrations and special occasions. Times where you listened to live music from a local band or sat around a campfire reminiscing with old friends.
It’s hard to get together right now but we look forward to having you #BeerHereSoon.
How it’s setup. Entrants give their name, email and answer the big question — Where do you beer? — via four drop down options that all have their a special corresponding prize package.
