I guess the guy that set the clocks had used one-too-many of those beer tokens prior to going to work.

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

One of these days, I'll actually buy a bike again...

I wanna know where the tokens get cashed in and why not just use money??? Sounds like a sweet novelty item kind of deal though. Beer tokens, collect the whole set

I hope they are serious. It does sound fun, but do you have to buy tokens to buy the beer? Run out of tokens, drunken drive to the token ATM!

The real article says nothing of beer tokens. The Inquirer link given above adds that part.

Well, that's some good reasoning, but it's not the LEGAL reason. Most of the beer tents actually sell tickets because they can't legally sell beer in that specific location. However, the loophole is that they can sell tickets, then those tickets can be exchanged for beer. MP, when you become our leader, please abolish this stupid law.
