Samuel Adams® Big East Trivia Contest (the “Program”) is open to legal residents of the United States who are at least twenty-one (21) years of age at the time of entry. Employees (and their immediate families) of The Boston Beer Company (the “Sponsor”) and any of their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, independent contractors, agencies, alcoholic beverage wholesalers and retailers (cumulatively, the “Program Entities”) and any persons living in the same household as such employees are not eligible to participate in the Program. Program is subject to all applicable federal, state, local laws and regulations and is void outside the states listed above and where prohibited by law. The Program begins on 2/8/2021 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (“EST”) and ends 3/14/2021 at 11:59 p.m. EST (the “Program Period”). Prize winners will be selected in weekly drawings (the “Drawing Dates”) from among all eligible entries received as of the applicable Drawing Dates.
Up to seventy (70) potential winners total will be selected in weekly drawings of Ten (10) potential winners throughout the Program Period from among all eligible entries received as of the applicable Drawing Dates. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, the potential winners will be declared the official winners of the Program. Seventy (70) prizes total with Ten (10) weekly prizes will be awarded throughout the Program Period. Each winner will receive a pair of koozies, and a bottle opener. Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) $10. All prize details shall be determined in the sole and absolute discretion of Sponsor. Winner is fully responsible for any and all applicable federal, state, territory, provincial and local taxes (including income and withholding taxes). The prize is non-transferable and non-assignable, with no cash redemptions except at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. No prize substitution will be allowed, except that Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of comparable value if the prize listed is unavailable for any reason. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.
Potential prize winners will be notified by email, text message, U.S. mail, telephone, or private delivery service (at Sponsor’s sole discretion) and will be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Release of Publicity and Liability (where permitted by law) within three (3) days of notification. Such winner’s age is subject to independent age verification, and if failed, will result in prize forfeiture. In the event of noncompliance, if a prize winner cannot be reached at the phone number, email address or address on that winner’s entry, or if the prize or prize notification is returned unclaimed or undeliverable for whatever reason beyond the control of Sponsor, that prize will be forfeited, and an alternate potential winner may be selected by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries received as of the applicable Drawing Date only if time permits and in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Prize winner’s guest (who must be 21 years of age or older) must sign and return a Release of Liability within seven (7) days of winner’s attempted notification.
