Milwaukee-area brewery's 'free beer until Packers score' gameday special backfires

Packers were shut out 23-0 by Ravens

GLENDALE, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers fans at one Milwaukee-area brewery didn't have to pay for a single beer Sunday during the game after the team was shut out by the Baltimore Ravens.

The Bavarian Bierhaus restaurant and brewery offers a special during Packers games: free beer until the green and gold scores.

On Sunday, that backfired as the Packers lost to the Ravens 23-0 and fans were able to drink for free the entire game.

So if fans were more than a little upset by the prospect of their team's first home shutout loss since 2006, they at least had the prospect of a free pint to console them.

The Bierhaus may be in for another long day Sunday night, as the Packers travel to Pittsburgh to face off against the Steelers - allowing just 16.5 points per game, good for second-best in the NFL.
