This June, we’re heading back to New York City for the Silver Anvil Awards — colloquially known as the “Oscars of PR.”
Check out the recap from last year, where we took home not one, but two Silver Anvils for our Will Work for Beer campaign. And wish us luck this year — we’re thrilled to be nominated for resurrecting Iron City Beer.
