A bloke who won an £800,000 BrewDog bar tab was kicked out and ‘encouraged to have an early night’ after splashing a large portion of his winnings in one evening.
The Scottish brewer recently opened a new bar in Las Vegas, Nevada, not only marking its first West Coast spot, but also its second largest location in the world.
To celebrate, BrewDog threw a lavish party for hundreds, with live music from the likes of indie duo We Are Scientists.
The company also gave one lucky punter a huge $1 million (£800,000) tab to be spent on beer, food and even the brewery's hotels, valid for period of 20 years.
The winner was Jeffrey Appleby, who instantly became a legend when he started buying drinks for others in the venue, with the crowd reportedly chanting: “Jeff! Jeff! Jeff!”
Photos show him standing on top of the bar to receive his giant cheque from BrewDog founder James Watt, while in other snaps he is walking round with a wheelbarrow of cans.
According to the Mirror, the 36-year-old Air Force veteran spent a whopping $27,000 (£21,000) of the cheque on rounds for everyone in the bar.
However, he was soon asked to leave and encouraged to get a bit of shut-eye, with the company confirming he was escorted out of the party by ‘two senior managers’.
It is believed he left the venue without any fuss, with BrewDog saying he was welcome back any time.
A BrewDog Las Vegas spokesperson said: “We were delighted with our Grand Opening party with over 1,000 guests enjoying the evening.
“Our Million Dollar Bar Tab winner delighted the crowd by buying the bar a few rounds of beer, and after this, he was encouraged to have an early night.
"He left with his two friends and was accompanied leaving by two senior managers.
“We look forward to seeing him back in one of our bars in the near future to use the remainder of his prize. Our terms and conditions allow for this prize to be claimed against hotel room nights, food as well as beer.
“Furthermore the prize is valid over a 20 year period, therefore encouraging sensible consumption.”
