Getting out of town for the long weekend by going down to Williamsburg, Virginia. The wife wanted steak for dinner and we saw an Outback restaurant that she wanted to go to. Walking in to the establishment, I saw this poster.
Anything to do with the military has my attention. I asked the waitress and she gave me some made-up answer. However, to her credit, she asked the bartender who corrected her. She came back to me and said she lied to me. Sam Adams has created a deal with Outback for a pay-it-forward free beer deal. Buy a $5.95 Same Adams and they will hand you a beer shaped card to write an inspirational message to the Soldier. The card is then placed up on the bar and a fellow veteran can come along and cash in the card for a free beer.
Here is the card I bought. Looks like the others have been cashed in.
So if you are headed to Outback, take advantage and look for a free beer. Or if you are a leader like me, who appreciates everything military members do every day, pay $5.95 to buy them a well-deserved beer!
