Wedding planning is usually one of the happiest times in a couple’s lives. But, many couples who had weddings planned for the spring and early summer of 2020 have encountered an unimaginable roadblock. The coronavirus pandemic has forced many couples to rethink their big day in big ways.
While some have decided to scale down and take advantage of remote technology such as Zoom to say “I do,” many were forced to stay home and postpone their wedding day. To help ease the disappointment for these couples, Busch decided to sponsor a special wedding sweepstakes in which 250 lucky winners can win a year’s supply of beer. Now that’s something to celebrate!
Busch announced the contest on Twitter:
Your wedding plans may be on ice for the time being, but we wanna give you a wedding gift of ice-cold Busch. FOR A YEAR.

“Your wedding plans may be on ice for the time being, but we wanna give you the gift of ice-cold Busch,” the tweet reads. “FOR A YEAR.”
Entry to the Busch Wedding Sweepstakes runs through 11:59:59 p.m. EDT on May 1. Couples can enter the contest through a variety of social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. For each platform, you need to post a photo of yourself and then follow the directions.
Whether you’re using Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, the directions are pretty much the same. First, post a photo of you with your partner. Then, write a caption about the two of you and how you still plan to celebrate. Finally, on your post, make sure to include the hashtags #BuschWeddingGift and #Sweepstakes.
Even if you’re not the one getting married but know someone who was planning to tie the knot, you can submit an entry. Go to your favorite social media platform (or multiple ones), post a photo of someone who is age 21 or over who had plans to get married and include the hashtags #MyFriendsWedding and #Sweepstakes.

After all the submissions are received, Busch will select up to 250 winners who will receive a $300 gift card to buy a year’s worth of beer, or two 24-cases per month. Plus, the company will select up to another 50 people to receive a prize package including a T-shirt and a beer koozie.
This isn’t the first time a beer company has come to the rescue during the pandemic. When a 93-year-old woman in Pennsylvania was running out of her favorite brew while sheltering at home, Coors delivered 150 cans of Coors Light right to her doorstep.
Cheers to that!
