Chicago-based brewery Goose Island Beer Co. made an offer on Monday that almost nobody can refuse.

The popular beer company is reportedly offering to give anyone who can complete a 43-yard field goal — the same as Cody Parkey’s infamous ‘doink’ that dashed the Bears’ chances of advancing in the playoffs — free beer for a year.

The NFL ended up changing the ruling from a “block” to a “miss,” but not before Parkey received a ton of flack online for the botched attempt. Even a few (okay way more than a few) Chicago locals disowned Parkey and blamed the entire game on him.

So the Chicago-based beer company decided to take matters into its own hands and stood in solidarity with Parkey. You can read the long-winded Twitter thread below:

Now, granted, the promotion is only going on this weekend during normal operation hours, but if you happen to be in Chicago and you’re feeling loose, stop in. There’s a chance you have the skills equal to that of an NFL player and it could win you free beer for a year.

Or a pulled hammy. You choose.
