I've got a secret... there's a way you can get free beer while partying on a Friday night in Wisconsin.


The Number One Pastime For Residents Of Wisconsin

When it comes to hobbies for people in Wisconsin, I think ranking the top activity is pretty darn easy. It has to be drinking beer. I'm totally serious. If you've spent any amount of time there, you would agree with me. They're boozing experts.

I'll drink to that!

Wisconsin Loves Their Milwaukee Brewers

Another thing the folks in Wisconsin enjoy is their local sports teams. That includes the Packers, Badgers, Bucks, and, of course, the Milwaukee Brewers. The baseball team has been competitive the last couple of years, so that increases the fandom.

The Milwaukee Brewers Love Their Fans Too

Even though I'm a Chicago fan, I enjoy going to Milwaukee for games. It doesn't even have to be when they're playing my favorite teams. Honestly, if I haven't spent my whole life invested in the Cubs and White Sox, I would definitely be a fan of the Brewers.

I can tell that the players love playing for the Wisconsin team, especially because of the fans who always show them love and respect. It's a nice little relationship they have going on.

Free Beer For Brewers Fans

This season the Milwaukee Brewers players are doing something really special for the fans. They are buying them beer. That's huge because people from Wisconsin love drinking. Of course, their number one choice of "adult" beverage is a free one.

According to onmilwaukee.com,

"Called "This One's On Me," the player-led effort will select a surprise bar or restaurant during each of the 13 remaining Friday road games on the 2022 schedule and cover customers' tabs for the night starting at 5 p.m."

"The team announced it will foot fans' bar tabs more than a dozen times throughout the season."
