Free beer to be had!

In a first for Ed's beer site I can now offer the chance to win free beer

I've been contacted by the people promoting Spitfire ale asking if I'll run a competition based on their 'Bottle of Britain' campaign, the winner getting a free crate. 

Now you may be asking why I, a brewer working in Kent, will promote a rival Kent brewery. Simple, they've offered me free beer too and I can't say no to that. 

Watch the vid and answer this simple question: Which famous English landmark features in the Bottle of Britain film?

Email your answer to and when I get back from the lakes in a week's time hopefully a winner will have a crate of beer winging its way to them and I'll have a crate waiting for me on the door step.


  1. Tedious, brown, tasteless beer with a racist advertising campaign? Nah, don't think I'll bother, thanks.

  2. What he said.

    There are good and bad ways of promoting beer. This is a bad one.

  3. Sending me a free crate is very much a good way of promoting beer as far as I'm concerned, and the video is actually quite inoffensive.

  4. i got made the same offer Ed, turned it down for the reasons makr and barm mention!

  5. Whoop! Whoop! Warning - sense of humour failure in the beerblogosphere! Is it any more/less "racist" than this? Not, I think …
