Bar Offers Free Beer Until Green Bay Packers Score, Team Gets Shut Out

A Milwaukee bar has fumbled a promotion they did to get people in to their place to watch the Green Bay Packers play. Now, they’re giving away free beer for the entire week as a result.

The bar, called The Bavarian Bierhaus, offered up free beer to anyone who came in during game time this past Sunday until the local NFL team scored a touchdown. Unfortunately, their opponents that day, the Baltimore Ravens, swooped in on the opportunity and shut out the Packers on their home turf. Thus, patrons of the Bierhaus went the entire game with free beers to drown the sorrows of their crushing defeat in.

The free beer game time special has been going on all season, ABC7 Detroit reports. Considering that Green Bay hasn’t been held scoreless at home since 2006, it was a good bet that the free beers wouldn’t last too long. Alas, this past evening was not the case.

The Bierhaus is holding up their end of the deal, however. They’ve committed to offering free beer all week long until they score against the Pittsburgh Steelers (who has the second-best defense in the league) in an upcoming bout this Sunday.

That’s a true class act by the Bavarian Bierhaus, but they better hope the Green Bay Packers don’t walk away scoreless in this matchup as well as future ones. The bar could be in for a long, costly remainder of the season otherwise.

NBA Star Dirk Nowitzki Is Giving Out 30,000 Beers For Scoring 30,000 Career Points

Dallas Mavericks fans are going to be extremely happy as their star player’s recent historic achievement, is leading to free beer..

Wednesday, Dirk Nowitzki, became the sixth player in the history of the National Basketball Association (NBA) to score 30,000 career points.

Following his remarkable feat, Dirk told ESPN that he drank a Bud Light after the game for “the first time in a long time” as a way to celebrate.

While this may seem like a typically normal way to celebrate, most NBA players, like Nowitzki, are on a strict diet and training regimen throughout their careers, so having a beer to them is like one of us celebrating with a massive cheat day.

Apparently, Bud Light was so inspired by this shoutout, that they decided to deliver a truckload of 30,000 beers with the Mavericks’ logo on it (also known as the Mavs Team Cans) to American Airlines Arena, where the Mavs play.

While you think Dirk may be set on beers for the rest of his life, he won’t be keeping this wealth of alcohol. The Mavericks announced that they will be giving away the beers to anyone of drinking age during Friday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets.

I’ll be cracking open a beer for you as well tonight, Dirk. Congrats on the amazing achievement.

Vending Machine Rewards You with Free Beer for Doing Absolutely Nothing – Where Do We Sign Up?

pause2

Sorry, signing up would be doing something – where do we, um, “not” sign up?

It seems no one appreciates the beauty of a good awkward silence anymore. And why would we, when the latest Minion Rush or Instagram feed or, bless your souls, food blog, is only a few taps away? Well, for starters, sometimes it scores you free beer.

In an effort to get young professionals to unplug for a few minutes after work, Amstel Bulgaria and creative agency Next-DC placed a beer vending machine in the middle of the Bulgaria’s capital city of Sofia. The only fee required? Three agonizing minutes spent doing, yep, absolutely nothing. It’s hard to tell just by the video exactly how the machine (dubbed the “Amstel Pause”) determined what “nothing” actually looked like, but at the :35 mark, one guy can be clearly seen stepping away to take a phone call and thereby sending the presumably unbearably slow timer back down to zero.

According to Creativity Online, the vending machine sat for 16 days between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. and racked up a whopping 4,032 minutes (or 67 hours) of “rest.”

The question is, what happens if someone decides to camp there for more than three minutes? Because I, for one, happen to have zero smartphones and a pretty thick to-read list I need to hammer my way through. Your move, Pause.
