Jameson Irish Whiskey

Jameson wants you to love your neighborhood bar so badly, they’ll reimburse you for your next drink—all you have to do is show up at your local watering hole.  

To claim your rebate: Visit a neighborhood bar between now and March 31, order a Jameson cocktail, and send a picture of your receipt to the company via Facebook messenger. They’ll handle the rest.

The St. Patrick's Day promotion is part of Jameson’s #LoveThyBar campaign, which aims to promote local bar patronage.

“As a brand that grew up in neighborhoods across the country, Jameson has always celebrated the unique places, sounds, and tastes found only in the neighborhood bars. But nowadays, these bars are closing every day,” a press release states. “In a time when people are struggling to connect and choosing their couch over their local bar, it's more important than ever to hold onto the stories, memories and connections that come from within neighborhood bars and remind consumers of the role they play in shaping their communities.”

To show that they’re serious, Jameson is pledging up to $1 million to consumers around the country.

"Consumers will be able to engage with their communities and support their favorite bars with a drink offer from Jameson,” said Paul Di Vito, Vice President, Jameson, Pernod Ricard USA. “This connection to local neighborhoods across the country is a big part of what has shaped Jameson into what it is today and it's vital that we show our support and commitment to keeping these institutions of culture and community alive."

Grammy award-winning musician and record producer Anderson .Paak is joining Jameson in fight to save Cheers-esque bars around the country.

"This cause with Jameson is one I can get behind because it's part of my story," said Anderson .Paak. "It feels like nearly all the bars that we came up in within our hometown are done, they're just not there anymore. Music will suffer if we don't value the local spots, the neighborhood bars, where you can roll up and play to just the staff if that's the vibe. When you are trying to figure out who you are, as an artist or a person, you need to go bounce stuff off real people, new people, strange people and discover yourself through being around others. Get your crew together, go out and #LoveThyBar."

This offer available to consumers in California,Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, and Washington who order a drink that costs up to $8.

Of course, you have to be at least 21 years old to claim your rebate.
