There are just three certainties in life: death, taxes, and The Drunk Uncle offering insane beer specials. Since reopening last May after a lengthy renovation hiatus, the West Allis wrestling bar has made a habit of treating customers to unthinkably amazing specials, including selling pints of beer for 50 cents during Wisconsin State Fair last August and offering a “50 cent Black Friday beer sale” in November. Did we mention The Drunk Uncle has also sold pints of every IPA on its draft line for $1 almost every Saturday of its existence?

Even though The Drunk Uncle isn’t open on account of this whole unending and ever-worsening global pandemic thing, the bar hasn’t abandoned its tendencies for giving people outstanding deals. Case in point: last Saturday, The Drunk Uncle sought to empty its coolers and find good homes for beers that wouldn’t stay fresh much longer by letting people name their own price for cans and bottles, as well as growler fills of its impressive selection of 48 draft lines.

It appears as if the cans and bottles are gone, but there’s miraculously still draft beer left to sell. In effort to drain the remaining stock of “about 60 barrels,” The Drunk Uncle will once again offer “pay-what-you-want” growler fills this Saturday from 2-6 p.m. That’s right…you pay what you want for beer. The only catch is you have to follow these totally easy and responsible guidelines from The Drunk Uncle:

“This is going to be a CASH ONLY event, with no set price. Donate what you feel comfortable donating for this. We can’t lie by telling everyone this will help us during this very difficult time. Please follow social distancing, wash your hands, don’t pick your nose, and be kind to everyone. We are all in this together.”
