Lakefront Brewery is partnering with the DNR to giveaway Wisconsin State Parks season passes from now through June.

Just scan the QR code on posters around the city, or find it on the Lakefront Brewery website and you could win one of 100 2023 Wisconsin State Parks passes.

Lakefront says the promotion is tied to its recent switch from bottles to all cans for its beers.

“The timing of this opportunity and us switching to all cans is a real one, two victory for our environment,” says the brewery's Brand Manager, Michael Stodola.

“Our state parks are gorgeous and give folks so much fun and beauty. Now, they could be free to you too.”

Lakefront is also the state's first brewery to be verified by B Lab.

Certified B Corporations are verified by B Lab, "to meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability."

“Being an official B Corp member we’ve strived to be even more of an advocate for our environment by partnering with the State Parks,” said Lakefront Chain Account Manager, Kyle Thompson.

“What better way, than to give our fans a chance to reconnect with our state’s natural beauty?”

No purchase is necessary to enter the contest.
