  • Arthur Johnson recently turned 100 and won free beers for life from the Bowling Green Pub in Chorlton, England. Eight years ago, a bartender told Arthur if he made it to 100 he would get free beer for the rest of his life.

Bar owner Mark Canny tells the Daily Mirror; Mark Canny, isn't too thrilled with the expenses of the whole thing...but overall, he's more than happy to stick to his word and oblige the regular customer. I made this promise of free beer for life about six or seven years ago not expecting that he would be at the pub every day of the week. My profits have taken a downward spiral! He’s not just a customer, he’s a drinking buddy. He was at my wedding last year."
