And a GOOD pint of beer from some of Bozeman's best breweries, just for showing your vaccination card. (I think they should have called it "Pokes for Pints" but that's just me.)

It's a pretty simple concept: Get your vaccination, bring in your vaccination card to a participating brewery and you'll get your free pint. Easy peasy.

  • You must be 21 years of age or older to participate and get a free pint
  • This fun incentive will END on Saturday, May 15th, 2021
  • One free pint per vaccine card
  • Participating breweries: MAP Brewing, Bridger Brewing, and Bozeman Brewing Company.

Haven't yet signed up to get your vaccine in Gallatin County? You can sign up and start the process with the Gallatin City/County Health Department HERE. When appointments are available, an email will be sent to the email address you include on that sign-up sheet.

You don't HAVE to get your shot through the City/County Health Department. Wherever you prefer is just fine. A vaccination card from any valid source is perfectly acceptable.

If you need help finding a vaccine in our area, you can visit this page on the County website...it has ALL your vaccine options in one place.

(BTW - This weekend, April 17th and 18th, there is a 2-day all-day vaccination clinic being held at Bozeman Ford in Bozeman on North 19th. No appointment is necessary for this particular weekend clinic. They will be administering the Moderna vaccine.)

Many thanks to MAP Brewing, Bridger Brewing, and Bozeman Brewing Company for being involved in this promotion. It's a cool thing to do, and a nice way to reward your neighbors for getting the shot. We appreciate the care you have for our community!

Thanks to everyone in our community for doing their part to keep each other safe. It's been a long time since we've been able to really come together in person and we're hoping to do just that, this summer!
