Geaghan Brothers Brewing Company offers photo contest

BANGOR Geaghan Brothers Brewing is hoping to quench the thirst of Mainers and vacationers alike this summer during their Where I drink GBB' photo contest.

The local brewery is encouraging the public to take photos of where they enjoy their Geaghan's beer, whether it's in the backyard grilling or out with friends enjoying the Maine coast, and post those pictures on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook with #whereIdrinkGBB.

Each Monday, the brew crew' at Geaghan's will select a winning photo for that particular week to receive a prize package. And at the end of eight weeks, one winner will be selected to receive a VIP tour of the brewery and a $50 gift card to Geaghan's Pub.

'People like to take pictures of what they're doing whether it's boating, hiking or camping wherever. They're going to do that anyway so why not mesh the two of enjoying a Geaghan's brew while enjoying summer in Maine,' explained Lisa Sturgeon, communications manager at Geaghan's. 'We want people to get creative and so whatever that means in terms of a stylistic photo or just sharing their experience with us, we want to see it.'

Area restaurants are also encouraged to participate in the contest.

'The restaurant that receives the most check-ins at the end of the eight weeks will receive an end of the summer bash courtesy of Geaghan's. The summer bash will be worked out with the winning location, so it really depends on who wins and what they want it to look like, but it will include a meet and greet with the GBB brew crew, giveaways and more,' said Sturgeon.

Geaghan's has already received several submissions including one of their cold brews chilling alongside W.A. Bean sausage and photos from their mug club members enjoying their favorite beverage. All pictures need to include the #whereIdrinkGBB. In addition, any and all submissions could also be used for future promotions.

'I think it just gives us a great opportunity to connect with our fans and gives them the chance to be creative and take the experience of Geaghan's with them wherever they go,' Sturgeon said.

To participate or check out the submissions posted so far, log onto whereIdrinkGBB on Facebook. Contest ends July 30.
