At first, we weren’t sure if this was real, but it comes directly from New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy’s Twitter feed. The state is rolling out its “Shot and a Beer” program, offering a free beer to those 21 and older who get the coronavirus vaccine in May.
NEW: We’re launching our “Shot and a Beer” program to encourage eligible New Jerseyans ages 21+ to get vaccinated.
Any New Jerseyan who gets their first vaccine dose in the month of May and takes their vaccination card to a participating brewery will receive a free beer. ? pic.twitter.com/REiHTEa6mi

Oh, it’s only at participating breweries. Still, it’s a good deal.
What about us in March? I WANT A BEER

Seriously I got my first last month. I want a damn free beer too!

Can I get revaxxed?

Hey, I’m all for this but how about some love for those of us who already got vaccinated because it’s the right thing to do? Also, happy to see Flying Fish (about a mile from my home) on the list, but I’m sure more South Jersey breweries would sign on.

All of us who got vaxxed before May should get two beers

Rep. Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin doesn’t want New Jersey to corner the market on the idea.
Huge milestone for what has to be the first half-baked idea to become public policy. Wisconsin needs to step up. We cannot, under any circumstances, let New Jersey corner the beer and a shot market.
— Rep. Mike Gallagher (@RepGallagher) May 3, 2021
Holy crap. Something I ACTUALLY agree with you on!

Wouldn't a shot and a brandy old fashioned be true proof of Wisconsin exceptionalism?

This is an easy one. Can we get a @culvers coupon for a free frozen custard for a vax? If the flavor of the day is Campfire Smore, you’ll need to stock up on those vaccines…

Beats Colorado’s vax and a bong hit

We’re just glad to know that brewpubs are still open and not locked down.
‘Is a 10-year-old running this account?!’ Project Lincoln claiming that ‘getting the vaccine is patriotic’ HILARIOUSLY backfires https://t.co/zJysR5zSCR
