Amber Under-the-Cap Fishing Derby Photo Contest

Reel ’em in with Alaskan Brewing & Salmon Sisters in the Amber Under-the-Cap Fishing Derby Photo Contest!

In Alaska, fishing is a way-of-life! Whether it’s a king salmon, sockeye salmon, halibut or rockfish, there’s a special thrill and pride in reeling in a beautiful, wild Alaskan catch.

While not everyone gets to take part in the world-class fishing Alaska has to offer, this summer, you can become a fisherman with the pop of a beer cap! We’re teaming up with Salmon Sisters for a fun photo contest with great prizes. Purchase bottled Alaskan Amber this summer and you’ll find special illustrations of Alaskan fish and predators under the cap. To enter the derby, take a photo of your under-the-cap “catch” – creative Alaska- and fishing-inspired photos are encouraged – and post it to the Alaskan Brewing Facebook page or use the hashtag #alaskanbeer on Instagram or Twitter.

The photo contest will begin on May 1 and will run through the beginning of September. At the end of each week, we will compile submissions for each week and post them for voting – the photo with the most votes by the end of the week will be the weekly winner. Weekly winners will receive a prize package with goodies from Alaskan Brewing and Salmon Sisters and they’ll also go head-to-head for the grand prize at the end of the summer – the winner will be announced on September 9 and will walk away with some great prizes for their next fishing adventure: a Salmon Sisters gift card to get outfitted, a gift card for fishing gear to fill their tackle box, and a Grizzly cooler for their catch!
