Who decides how many freebies I get?

As sort of a parallel to this earlier question
, how do flight attendants decide how much free booze to give out?

I fly a lot for work. I fly exclusively on Alaska Airlines, which puts me in the position of being MVP Gold (middle of the road as far as their frequent flier program goes). In coach, frequent fliers are offered a free drink. Many times the attendant will apologetically charge me for a second drink, but perhaps 10% of the time they will offer me as many as I'd like for free. How does this work? Who decides this, and what is it based on?
