Beer Dabbler giving away beer festival tickets for life to 1 vaccinated person

Anyone who gets at least one dose of the vaccine by July 1 can enter to win.

Beer Dabbler is giving away a lifetime beer festival ticket to someone who gets vaccinated by July 1. 

The company behind the popular craft beer festivals of the same name is hoping this will encourage more people to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

“After a year of masking up and lockdowns, Minnesotans are ready to get out this summer and enjoy life again. But with just over half of the population vaccinated, we need more Minnesotans to step up and get their shots to ensure the safety of our most vulnerable communities, and to help life get back to normal,” Brian Kaufenberg, Beer Dabbler’s creative director, said in a news relase.

"Our Beer Dabbler Festival Ticket for Life contest is our way to motivate folks to finally get vaccinated and to thank those who have already been fully vaccinated."

The ticket for life means the winner will get a ticket to every Winter Beer Dabbler, Pride Beer Dabbler and Summer Beer Dabbler for the rest of their life, starting with the Pride Dabbler on July 16. 

This will allow the winner to enjoy unlimited beer samples from a selection of roughly 1,500 beers poured at Beer Dabbler festivals each year — for life.

Anyone 21 or older who has received their first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by July 1 is eligible to enter the contest online here. The winner must provide proof of vaccination and a valid government-issued ID to claim the prize. 

The lifetime beer festival ticket is the latest incentive for Minnesotans to get the vaccine. The state of Minnesota and businesses, including craft breweries, have also announced various incentives as the vaccination rate has slowed in recent weeks. 

Health officials have a goal of getting 70% of adults immunized against the vaccine by July 1. According to the Minnesota Department of Health, 65.5% of Minnesotans ages 16 and older have gotten at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
