Free beer? Yes, please!

If you recall, back in November of 2020, Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater made a 59-yard field goal to beat Washington just as time was running out on the clock.

Now, the end of the season is here, and that kick has been named the longest field goal of the season. The kick also scored the city of Detroit some free beer.

Last summer, Bud Light challenged Prater and Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus to a friendly content. The beer company said whoever kicked the longest field goal at the end of the season would score his city free beer.

So, where’s the beer? Don’t get too excited, yet, as we’re waiting for word on how to get it. Bud Light hasn’t exactly stated how they’re doing to disturbed the beer, but we’re ready.
