Free beer! Council Bluffs bar unlocks Husker fridge after Nebraska beats Minnesota

Nothing tastes better than a free beer. Except the sweet taste of victory.

Husker fans got both Saturday afternoon at Barley's in Council Bluffs after Nebraska defeated Minnesota 53-28.

The bar recently made headlines for locking a fridge full of beer until Nebraska snapped its gridiron losing streak, a move similar to a recent Cleveland Browns promotion.

The side of the fridge reads:

“In the spirit of being Iowa Nice, Barley’s is offering a gift to our neighbor who is hurting. Their once proud program can’t seem to win a game. When the Big Red ends the 2nd longest losing streak in the nation, enjoy some ‘Frosty’ cold beverages on us. #GBR #IowaNice”

The losing streak ended, the fridge opened and Husker fans enjoyed a cold one on the house.
