BEER CAN CONTEST!




Contest Time!


How creative can you be with beer cans? And with beer bottles, growlers, crowlers and beer glasses?

Remember #fortfort ? Use your collection to build a fort, or a beer can car, an animal, art display, anything you want! Cut, smash, paint, accessorize, be imaginative! Use koozies, stickers, any swag you have lying around. (Even TP...)

Now through midnight Thursday, May 7th, share photos of your creation on Facebook and/or Instagram, tag Boise Beer Buddies and TAG AT LEAST ONE BUDDY HUB to be entered to win one of three prizes! Design and share as many works of art as you can come up with to enter as many times as you like. 
(Prizes to be determined...will update asap.)

The most outlandish, bizarre, off the wall formations will be voted on after May 7th. Let's see how original you can be!
