Joe's FREE BEER giveaway: President will give complimentary booze to Americans if 70% of adults are vaccinated by July 4 in deal with Anheuser-Busch

 Brewer Anheuser-Busch announced on Wednesday that it is teaming up with the White House to offer its 'biggest beer giveaway ever' if 70 percent of American adults have had at least one vaccine by July 4.  

Biden is announcing a 'month of action' Wednesday to get more shots into arms before the July 4 holiday - which he has previously hoped would be the celebration of the 'independence from COVID'.

He will also offer free health care for parents who want to drop off their children while they get the vaccine, extended pharmacy hours, shots at barber shops and beauty salons and a national vaccination tour for Kamala Harris. 

In past speeches he has said Americans will be able to host 'small gatherings' at their homes and is now trying to reverse the declining rate of vaccinations.

The campaign, called 'buy America’s next round of beer' will be open to millions across the country.


Applicants over the age of 21 can upload a photo of themselves 'in their favorite place to grab a beer' to MyCooler.com/Beer to enter the chance to win a $5 digital prepaid card.

But only 200,000 applicants will win the free beer. To date 62.8 percent of the adult U.S. population have received at least one dose of a vaccine and 133.6 million are full vaccinated - but the rate has slowed.

The average is now below 600,000 per day, down from more than 800,000 per day when incentives like lotteries were announced, and down from a peak of nearly 2 million per day in early April when demand for shots was much higher.  


'[N]ow that we are at this pivotal moment where people are excited to be together again, it only makes sense that we would unite our full portfolio and take this action to encourage people to get vaccinated,' Anheuser-Busch chief marketing officer Marcel Marcondes said in a statement.

Speaking from the White House, Biden is set to update the nation on the vaccination rollout and his plans to get 70 percent of adults partially vaccinated by Independence Day - essential to his goal of returning the nation to a pre-pandemic sense of normalcy this summer. 


The latest vaccine sweetener, provided by Anheuser-Busch, builds on other incentives like cash giveaways, sports tickets or paid leave, to keep up the pace of Americans getting shots.

The White House said Biden's 'month of action' will continue to use public and private-sector partnerships to encourage Americans to roll up their sleeves, drawing in businesses, social media influencers, colleges, celebrities and community organizations to help spread the word about the benefits of vaccination and to encourage them to get shots.
