Drink Beer, Win Airstream: Sycamore Brewing Opens ‘Candy Camper’ Contest

If you don’t live in the Southeast, it might be worth a quick vacay. Grab this local IPA and post a video on social, and you could win the Airstream of your dreams.

Usually, cracking a cold one is its own reward. But from now until the end of summer, drinking a Sycamore Brewing Mountain Candy IPA could make you the winner-winner-chicken-dinner of a custom Airstream Bambi.

The bad news is that Sycamore Brewing distributes regionally. So right now, you can only find it across the Southeast — North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, and Kentucky.

But the good news is that the Atlantic Coast is beautiful this time of year, and the cost of a plane ticket is a fraction of an Airstream!

Win an Airstream Bambi From Sycamore Brewing

Here’s how the Candy Camper Contest works. From now through Sept. 27, 2021, U.S. residents (age 21 and older!) can enter by posting a video of themselves with any Sycamore Brewing beer on TikTok, Instagram, and/or YouTube with the hashtag #CandyCamperContest. Be sure to keep the video under 30 seconds.

But what kind of video, you ask?

“Get wacky, get weird! You’re the star of the show,” said Sycamore Brewing co-owner Sarah Taylor Brigham. “We encourage all of our contestants to step out of their comfort zone to make fun and engaging short videos for the chance to win a customized Mountain Candy Airstream camper for a lifetime of adventure.”

But here’s the key: A Sycamore beer can must make an appearance in the video. On its contest page, the brand offers up some helpful ideas to get the creative juices flowing: Pranks, tricks, makeup tutorial, creative sip, fail, dogs, adventure, and more. You can upload literally anything — just make sure that can is in your video.

Plus, Sycamore will take the Airstream on the road for tour stops to help get beer — and entries — into even more hands. You can request the camper comes to you here.

Winning videos — including the grand prize winner of the $55,000 Airstream — will be announced after a drive-in film fest screening on Oct. 16 at the brewery’s Charlotte, N.C., taproom.

And four runners up will take home prizes like a Sycamore minifridge, skateboard, hammock, and more. Follow @sycamorebrewing for updates (and inspiration), and snag a Sycamore before the contest ends on Sept. 27.
