"Free Beerf"?

Jordy = H/A/M? H/A/F?
Yvan = H/A/M? H/A/F?

Nationality relevant? Are they Americans?

Are they college students? Friends? Relatives? In a relationship?

"Free Beerf"? According to this Washington Post contest, it's "how it sounds after four or five of them."

Jordy = H/A/M? Yes H/A/F?
Yvan = H/A/M? Yes H/A/F?

Nationality relevant? No Are they Americans? Assume yes - this is a true story from a few years ago, but I can't remember where it occurred.

Are they college students? Friends? Relatives? In a relationship? No to all

Are they in the same room when Jordy offers the beer to Yvan? Does he do it on the phone? On the internet?

Is it Jordy's beer? Is it Yvan's beer? And he's upset because Jordy offered him his own beer?
Does Jordy actually have beer? Does he give beer to Yvan? Is it a prank and he gives something other than beer to Yvan?

Is Jordy a policeman? Setting up a sting operation to catch Yvan? YES!! Is Yvan a thief? or some other type of criminal? I forget what type of criminal Yvan was, but no matter:

**********SPOILER**********

Yvan was a criminal who was being hunted by the police. Jordy, a policeman, called a certain phone number trying to find a clue, when Yvan answered it out of the blue. Thinking quickly, Jordy announced, "Congratulations! You've just won a case of free beer! Where would you like it sent?" Yvan gave his address, giving the police the information needed to find Yvan and arrest him.

Nice solve again, Kaylee - is that four in a row or something? Kudos also go to Jenburdoo and Doriana for their good questions.
