Fans of the Philadelphia Eagles will be able to crack open a free cold one courtesy of Bud Light during the team's championship parade Thursday. In light of the Eagles' 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots in Sunday's Super Bowl, Bud Light is fulfilling a promise it made to fans of the birds back in August to provide free beer if their team won the title, ESPN reported Monday.

It all started when, as penance for bad behavior over the offseason, Eagles player Lane Johnson promised to buy fans a beer if the team won the Super Bowl — then a very unlikely possibility. Bud Light took over his pledge, and now the company will give one free can of beer to every drinking-age Eagles fan who attends the team's championship parade in Philadelphia on Thursday.
