Illinois bar offers free beer as incentive for construction workers

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR/CBS 58) – An Illinois bar is resorting to "beer bribery" to try to relieve their construction headaches. 

Road construction is going on outside Olympic Tavern in Rockford which has been impacting the business. As a joke, the tavern posted a sign reading “Free beer for IDOT (Illinois Department of Transportation) crew if roadwork is done by Mon.”

Although Monday has already come and gone, Olympic Tavern owner Zack Rotello is still holding out hope the construction will be over soon.

A photo of the sign was posted on Reddit, where users chimed in complaining about construction in their own cities.
