Free beer deal for shutout federal employees keeps getting sweeter

Categories: Beer, Free Stuff!

What's that joke about Miller Light and having sex in a canoe? Nevermind, if you're a federal employee, you can now get a pint of any kind of beer -- even a frosty pint of craft beer -- for free anytime today at one of the participating Tuesday Brewsday locations in St. Paul. No more drowning your government woes in near-water domestics.

Tuesday Brewsday began as a way to show support for furloughed federal government employees by offering them a free round of domestic beers from 4 to 6 p.m. every Tuesday until the end of the government shutdown. The convention and visitors bureau, Visit St. Paul, arranged the offer with four area bars in St. Paul. Shortly thereafter, the number of participating bars doubled, and now, the offer is even more enticing.

"We're going from a Miller Light to a Summit Saga," says Adam Johnson of Visit St. Paul. "It was actually the restaurants' idea to make the upgrade."
