Padres pitcher Joe Musgrove has learned he will never have to pay for another beer in the town of San Diego again after a historic no-hitter for the franchise.

“A San Diego kid throwing the first no-hitter in @Padres history deserves to never pay for a beer in this town again,” a tweet from the Ballast Point beer company read. The post was noted by USA Today in piece published Sunday. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“So we decided to make that a reality,” it added. “Congratulations to @itsFatherJoe44 and cheers to #FreeBeerForJoe.”

“How cool is this?” the Padres’ star also shared in a video from the local brewery. “Holy cow, that’s free beer for life right there. It’s my favorite spot too.

“Thank you, Ballast Point,” he added. “It will get used well, I promise.”

Musgrove made history April 9 when the Padres beat the Texas Rangers 3-0 after he pitched a no-hitter.

The outlet noted, it was the first time that’s ever happened in the 8,206 games played by the Padres, going back to April 8, 1969.
