Phil Baldwin of Salt Lake City is finalist in the Samuel Adams "Come Brew with Us" contest.

To win the competition and represent the Western region, Baldwin needs Utahns to vote for his video posted on the Samel Adams Facebook contest page. Here's the link: http://www.facebook.com/SamuelAdams/app_211607358931918 Do it soon as the deadline is Monday, April 30.

For the contest, Samuel Adams executives asked beer fans to submit either a video or essay that demonstrated their creativity and knowledge of their beer. Five finalist were picked in five different regions.

Baldwin's 90-second video was the only video submitted by Western region contenders. It follows a bottle of beer winning a poker game and playing golf.

One winner from each region will receive a trip to Boston to tour the famous brewery and meet Jim Koch, president, CEO and fifth-generation brewer. Beside Baldwin, other Western region finalists come from Idaho Falls, ID; Portland, OR; Yakima WA; and Sparks, NV.
