Instagram is a great place for a community-wide contest! We’re inviting you to set a scene or simply hold up a locally-made beer today (Thursday), Friday, and throughout Saturday’s Porch Fest in Elmwood Village.

If you use #PorchBeersBFLO, are age 21+, and have a public Instagram account, you’ll have a chance to win a case of beer from:
Community Beer Works
Flying Bison Brewing
Big Ditch Brewing
12 Gates Brewing
Thin Man Brewing
Resurgence Brewing.

Not to mention take part in a big old #DrinkLocal movement that supports local jobs.

That’s a lot of delicious beer!! As you know, it tastes even better outside.

Don’t have a porch? THIS CITY HAS YOU COVERED!!!

Check out the Porch Fest Website to learn more about the porches, the bands, and then grab a six pack and a lawn chair and make your way around. Have fun, be safe, upload tons of photos.

Here’s a look at some of the entries so far!

SO MUCH BEER. It's contest time again, everyone! Fun, creative photos of *Local* delicious beers using #PorchBeersBFLO are entered to win more beer from some great local breweries. Cans, bottles, crowlers, growlers and branded glasses. Why that hashtag? Because submissions begin today and end when Porch Fest ends in the west side this Saturday, June 3. (And because beer tastes better on a porch.) Participating brewers include: @thinmanbrewery (pictured above) @communitybeer @resurgencebrewingco @flyingbisonbrewing and @12gatesbrewing! FIVE Winners will win 2-12pks or their equivalent from participating brewers. Must be 21 to enter. Drink responsibly. Support local businesses and jobs with your Instagram account.
