Canes Hosting Fan Appreciation Week

Beer for a Year, giveaways and more highlight the week of Dec. 14-20

by Michael Smith @MSmithCanes /

Fan Appreciation Week is typically celebrated during the last week of the regular season, but nothing about 2020 has been typical, so we're improvising.

Just in time for the holiday season, Fan Appreciation Week presented by Harris Teeter will take place Dec. 14-20 - virtually, of course.

We've got a week jammed full of giveaways, exclusive interactions and fan engagement lined up. Here's what you can expect.

Beer for a Year

You read that correctly. Beer. For a year. And not just any beer, but Storm Brew, the official beer of the Canes, a light, refreshing lager that weighs in at just 97 calories and 2.4 carbs per serving. It's a crispy, crushable beverage from our friends at R&D Brewing, and it could be yours for an entire year. You'll have four chances to win throughout the week, so keep your eyes and ears open.

Giveaways Galore

Who likes free stuff? You're in luck. We'll be giving away all sorts of things - gift cards, apparel, classic Homegrown Series items, NHL 21 digital codes and more - throughout the week, so make sure you're following the Canes on each and every social media platform.

Merchandise Flash Sale

Looking for the perfect Canes gift this holiday season? You might be able to save a few bucks with a flash sale that will make a surprise landing at some point during Fan Appreciation Week.
