CHICAGO (WIFR) -- The Chicago Bears' first-round playoff loss is still fresh in the minds of many fans, but one brewery uses it to give fans a new opportunity.
Goose Island Beer Company is offering 'beer for a year' to anyone who can kick a 43-yard-field goal. The company will award a free case of beer each week for anyone who can make the kick.
The challenge comes after Bears kicker Cody Parkey missed a game-deciding field from that distance in the Bears' final drive of a 16-15 home loss to Philadelphia Eagles. The NFL ruled on Monday the kick was blocked.
This weekend during normal taproom hours we’ll have a chance for you to show off your kicking skills. Hit the 43 yard field goal and you’ll win beer for a year and eternal glory. More info coming soon. 4/5— Goose Island Beer Co (@GooseIsland) January 7, 2019
Goose Island will place a goal in front of its brewery at 1800 W. Fulton St. in Chicago. You can sign up for the competition if you are 21 years old, but spots are limited.
Registration begins with one, while the hour-long challenge begins at 1 p.m. The company tweeted a photo Tuesday with rules for the challenge:
