App of the week: The Great Rocky Mountain Game

Do you like free beer? It’s certainly the right price anyway, and you can get your hands on it with Coors Light’s latest app The Great Rocky Mountain Game

This week’s app of the week combines two of our favourite things: technology and beer. Although we must add that you should never combine the two, it’s not a good idea to put your phone in the pint.

Anyway, the Coors Light Great Rocky Mountain Game lets you take control of a sled, and do your best on the course to be in with a chance to win a whole host of prizes, from free pints to hoodies and bobblehead moose. Or should that be mooses? Or meece?

Anyway, the game reminds us of playing Micro Machines way back in the day, except it’s a bit more difficult to control since you’re on ice. We won’t divulge our lap time since we wouldn’t want to embarrass everyone else…

There are over 3,500 prizes up for grabs every week, including paintballing trips with the lads, and if you’re skillful enough to be one of the winners of a free pint, you can redeem your prize in over 800 pubs across Ireland.


There’s also a great social aspect to the game with ‘Gift it Friday’, where every Friday, each winner automatically wins a free pint for their mate too, which will make you the most popular lad in the office, guaranteed.

So with the weather (supposedly) picking up in the next few days, you’ll be in the mood for a frosty one, and there’s no better excuse to have a go. Besides, who doesn’t love a free beer? The app is available now in both the Google Play store and iTunes.
