Employee Instagram Takeover – #summerseekerseries

Posted on: June 23rd 2016

This weekend, we’ll begin the #summerseekerseries on our @deschutesbeer Instagram page! With over 75,000 “hearts,” comments and shares on the #springseekerseries, we’ve deemed the series a success with lots of positive feedback from our co-workers and fans like you (winner was Kris Kinsella – photo above)! So…we’ll be continuing the series over the summer. We’ve chosen 6 very talented Instagram photographers who also happen to work here, to participate in the series, and who were nominated by their peers. These 6 staff members will be taking over our Instagram account on weekends from June 25th until Labor Day posting photos of what inspires them during the long and hot months of summer!

They will be looking for participation from YOU again, so be sure to follow along. The employee with the most engagement on their posts will win their own “outdoor swag pack” with gifts from partners like Hydroflask, REI,  Outdoor Research & more!

We hope you’ll chime in on employee takeover weekends to see what our #summerseeker photographers have to share. Each photographer is from a different department of the brewery and has their own unique eye, so we are really excited to see their posts to our page.

On our social media platforms, we share images we find inspiring and worth sharing, and hope you’ll do the same. Share your photos of experiences and moments you have this spring while enjoying our beer to @deschutesbeer and be sure to tag them #summerseeker!
