However, a disclaimer states that product sales could be extended “pending popularity”. So if those 250 packs are picked up before the promotion ends, Boston Beer might decide to produce and sell more.

Due to current liquor delivery laws, GiveThemBeer cannot ship hard cider to Alabama, Alaska, Kentucky, Hawaii, Mississippi, and Utah.
Additionally, drinkers in California, Missouri, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont, and West Virginia are not eligible to receive the Bitcoin Prize.

The decision to donate Bitcoin, which at press time is currently valued at over $ 49,000 and has a market cap of nearly $ 1 trillion, was born out of a desire to “surprise and delight” drinkers. angry with Orchard, according to Boston Beer specialist Taylor Roy.
“We have partnered with GiveThemBeer on a variety of projects in our portfolio for years now,” she said in a statement. “We’re always exploring new ways for our drinkers to experience our products, and GiveThemBeer has helped us do that.”
But don’t expect Boston Beer to follow in the footsteps of state-owned companies like Tesla.
Roy said the company is not currently looking to buy Bitcoin for itself.
