Of course, you don't necessarily have to go negative to nab a free brew. As Michael Roper, owner of Chicago's Hopleaf Bar explains, "We just bought beers for a couple last night after he proposed from his barstool, and she said yes! So I can say that if you ask the person at the next stool to marry you, we'll buy you both a beer. If he or she says no, we'll still buy you a beer to drown the sorrow." Whether it results in heartbreak or not, a bar proposal is always a win for your beer mug.
