6. Prize Drawing
All (30) “Ipswich Ale Brewery Golden Can” holders are automatically eligible for a complimentary “First Prize” dinner at the
Ipswich Ale Brewers Table at 2 Brewery Place for themselves and a guest at 6pm on January 11, 2022 provided they have
met the social media posting requirement outlined in Section 5 of these rules. The “First Prize” winner must be
present and the “First Prize” winner must surrender their “Ipswich Ale Brewery Golden Can” at the time of the random
drawing to be eligible for the random drawing for the “Grand Prize”. This random drawing will occur at the “First Prize”
dinner at the Ipswich Ale Brewer’s Table on January 11, 2022.
On or about January 02, 2022, Ipswich Ale Brewery will select “Ipswich Ale Golden Can” winners in a random drawing from
among all eligible entries received via the online submission process at the website www.ipswichalebrewery.com. The
number of winners selected in the random drawing will be based on the same odds that exist at the end of the “Golden
Can” sweepstakes period for the (30) cans that were put out in retail 12-packs.
For Example Purposes Only: If 10,000 12-packs were put out to retailers over the sweepstakes period and there are (30)
“Golden Cans” randomly placed in those 10,000 12-packs the odds would be 1 in 333.3. Correspondingly if there are 3,000
online, no purchase necessary, entries placed during the sweepstakes period then those entries would account for an
additional (9) “Golden Can” winners based on the 1 in 333.3 odds. These (9) “Golden Can” winners would be drawn at
random from the entire pool of online entrants on January 2, 2022
All “Golden Can” winners will have all the same rights and responsibilities in order to be eligible for the “First Prize” dinner
and the “Grand Prize”. All “Golden Can” finders as well as all randomly drawn online entrants will be invited to the compli-
mentary “First Prize” dinner at 6pm January 11, 2022 provided they have met the social media posting requirement
outlined in Section 5 of these rules. The “First Prize” winner must be present to be eligible for the random drawing for
the “Grand Prize” which will occur at the Ipswich Ale Brewer’s Table on January 11, 2022. The odds of being selected
depend on the number of entries received. The Ipswich Ale Brewery will attempt to notify the potential winner via
telephone or email on or about January 02, 2022. If the potential winner cannot be contacted within five (5) days after the
date of the first attempt to contact him/her, the Sponsor may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at
random from the remaining non-winning, eligible entries from the website.
7. Winner Notification
The “First Prize” winners form the email submission pool will be notified by email or phone. Each “First Prize” winner and
the “Grand Prize” winner will be required to complete, electronically sign and submit a Declaration of Compliance within
five (5) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. If a potential winner cannot be
contacted, or fails to submit the Declaration of Compliance within the required time period (if applicable), or prize is
returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits prize. Winners will be provided with a Federal form 1099 and will be
solely responsible for any tax implications that arise from winning either a “First Prize” or the “Grand Prize”. Winners must
continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all
requirements. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to
an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only three (3) alternate drawings will
be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 2 weeks after the conclusion of
the Sweepstakes at the complementary “First Prize” dinner at the Ipswich Ale Brewer’s Table in Ipswich MA at 6pm
January 11, 2022.
