Do you like beer? Are you like us and constantly obsess over taking the perfect picture of said beer to post on Instagram? Well, you’re in luck because now you can use your beery photog skills to win free local beer…and a lot of it!

Here’s what you need – a camera, Instagram and some local beer. Oh wait, you’ll need a porch or a patio too (see more on that below). Even if you don’t have one available, you have options (see more of that below as well). And with the nice weather we have been experiencing as of late, there is no shortage of patios to get out and enjoy around the city.

See below for full details…

Use the hashtag #PorchBeersBFLO as you share your favorite, most creative, hilarious, and/or visually stunning photos featuring local craft beer on your favorite porches & patios. Post your pictures (don’t forget the hashtag #PorchBeersBFLO and to tag your featured brewery) from now until the evening of Saturday, June 3, when Rise Collaborative will pick the winners.

Five winners each get a 24-pack case equivalent of beer from one of five participating breweries: Flying Bison, Resurgence Brewing, 12 Gates Brewing, Community Beer Works , Big Ditch and Thin Man Brewery.

Need a porch?  Check out a great annual neighborhood music festival, #buffaloporchfest , this Saturday afternoon on porches throughout the #ElmwoodVillage area.  Visit for more info and band listings.

Fine Print: All entrants must be at least 21 years of age to drink, participate, and/or win.
