Your next shot-and-a-beer combo might differ from your usual boilermaker: if you get the COVID-19 vaccine, you can get a free beer, courtesy of Sam Adams.
Starting April 12, the Boston brewery will send money to the first 10,000 people who share a photo for their vaccination sticker or bandage (but not your vaccination card) and include the hashtag #ShotForSam and tag the brewery. If you don't have social media, you can also send proof of your vaccine (again, not your vaccination card) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sam Adams will send $7 to the lucky few who have been vaccinated, and they'll receive their money through the Cash App.
The free beer offer follows Krispy Kreme's controversial promotion to give a free donut every day to those with the COVID-19 vaccine. A growing number of companies are giving free stuff to those who are vaccinated. Is Dunkin' next? Here's hoping Vanilla Nut Taps won't be the incentive.
