Picture this: You, your partner, and 150 of your closest friends and family celebrating your wedding at a brewery — for free.
If that sounds like an ideal way to kick off married life, Harpoon Brewery wants to make it happen. The brewery, which has taprooms in Boston and Windsor, Vt., is hosting its first wedding giveaway, offering one couple the chance to say “I do” at a 2022 wedding held within the Harpoon Brewery Beer Hall in Boston.
In order to enter, beer-loving couples need to fill out a questionnaire, which covers questions like “How did you and your partner meet?,” “Has COVID-19 impacted your wedding plans?,” “What is yours and your partner’s favorite Harpoon beer?,” and “Our local community is very important to us. Please share how you and your partner are involved in the community.” Once submissions are in, the brewery will judge applicants on three areas: love (“Does your love story make us swoon?”), beer (“Are you a true Harpoon fan?”), and life (“Do your lives together reflect what we value at Harpoon?”). Submissions will be collected through May 25, and the brewery will select the top five couples to be entered in a public vote from June 1 to June 8.
So what does the chosen couple get? Harpoon’s wedding package, valued at $7,000, includes use of the space for a three-hour event on Sunday through Thursday during regular business hours. Each guest will receive one pretzel and two beers, ciders, or hard seltzers, and the couple will receive 10 percent off Harpoon Kitchen Catering for the event. The package also includes a room rental fee, staffing fee, and brewery tours.
What it doesn’t include: wine, catered food, additional drinks, gratuity and admin fees, time extensions, and room customizations. If the couple is set on a Friday or Saturday wedding, a weekend date can be secured for an additional fee.
Winners will be announced on June 11, and interested couples can check out the full list of official rules, terms, and conditions here.
Good luck, and cheers!
