Free beer here 17 August 2005
"Have one on us" is the call from DB Breweries, which wants to shout all New Zealanders 18 or older a free beer today.
DB managing director Brian Blake said the company is proud to be celebrating its 75th birthday and wants to share this milestone.
"We've been part of New Zealand communities since 1930 and have a strong Kiwi heritage," Mr Blake said.
"Many Kiwis have grown with our brands - from the original Waitemata Sparkling Ale, to Export Gold and DB Draught. Having a national event like this is one way we can say thanks for more than seven decades of loyalty."
To claim their free beer, readers need to clip the coupon from P8 of today's paper and present it at a participating bar today. Not more than one voucher can be redeemed at a time.
Something actually FREE, and it happens to be what New Zealanders drink a lot of.
The bars are going to be full of people waving coupons. or not!
