There's no such thing as a free beer.

Did he like beer? Did he want a free beer? Did he notice he got one?
Is it ordinary, drinkable beer?
A living? human? male?

Living but not human, animal, insect, plant, or bacteria...is he microscopic? Indeed Is he sentient i admit, i do not know what this word means, but i believe the answer is yes?
Is he an alien? no Fictional character? since he is a microscopic dude that enjoys beer, i'd say yes.

Ok, he and the others that got beer are microscopic...are they mircoscopic people? creatures? aliens? relevant? Just microscopic beings?
Was the beer in a microscopic bottle? Normal sized bottle? Traditional beer bottle?

Ok, he and the others that got beer are microscopic...are they mircoscopic people? no creatures? aliens? relevant? Just microscopic beings? no to all; what he is is very relevant, but calling him a "he" is like calling a piece of wood that walks and talks a "he"

Was the beer in a microscopic bottle? Normal sized bottle? Traditional beer bottle? probably normal size, but ultimately irrev

"He" got a free beer, "he" is microscopic, how did "he" end up getting a free beer? As hinted above, give this guy the ability to order a normal sized beer, and figure out why it was free.

I am afraid I am misleading using phrases like "this guy"... it's something that is yes-ish living, but for the purposes of this puzzle, it has the abilty to order a beer...

It (he) is a neutron? The beer is free because the bartender says, "For you, no charge."

that's it! couldn't figure out how to answer some of the questions, but that's it...

******SPOILER*******
From a joke I had (re)heard recently:

A neutron walks into a bar. "I'd like a beer" he says. The bartender promptly serves up a beer.
"How much will that be?" asks the neutron. "For you?" replies the bartender, "no charge!".


...is a neutron living?

No, a neutron is not living. Its just an atomic particle...but that's ok...I'm sure there is some people who believe they are living...

That's what I thought, but it was hard to say it wasn't living when it was ordering a beer and, presumably, enjoying some beer nuts. :)
