A bar in Manchester is giving away free pints of beer this month in partnership with craft brewery favourite Tiny Rebel.
The Botanist, which has a bar and restaurant on Deansgate and another in Didsbury Village, is offering everyone the chance to enjoy a free pint of Tiny Rebel beer this September.
It has teamed up with the independent brewery to host a treasure hunt across Manchester, hiding 21 prints of Tiny Rebel’s bear mascot around the city.
Dressed in a host of location-specific looks, the bears will be placed around Manchester city centre and Didsbury village nearby to its venues.
In order to get their hands on a free pint, all customers need to do is find a Botanist Bear and scan the QR code on its poster. This wil take them through to a survey, which once completed wiill automatically send them a voucher for a pint of Clwb Tropica.
Beer-lovers are entitled to one free pint per person per city and the QR code will continue giving new hunters a free beer until the campaign ends at the end of the month.
If you find a Botanist Bear in another city, you will qualify for another pint, in that location. Simply scan the corresponding QR code in each city in order to redeem your drink in that location.
The bears will be positioned around key landmarks in The Botanist’s locations from 8 September and beer-seekers can redeem their free pint any time up until 30.
As well as receiving a free beer, everyone who scans any of the 21 different QR codes will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win a tour of the Tiny Rebel Brewery in Newport, South Wales – and there are five tours for two people up for grabs.
Tiny Rebel has promised to give away a whole year’s supply of beer to the person who finds the most bears around the country between 8 and 30 September.
The winner will initially get 12 cases of Tiny Rebel beer, along with some exclusive merch, and will then continue to receive another case every month for the following 11 months.
Bears are located in Bath, Alderley Edge, Birmingham, Cardiff, Cheltenham, Chester, Didsbury, Exeter, Farnham, Ipswich, Knutsford, Lincoln, Media City, Newcastle, Reading, Sheffield, Leeds, Warrington, West Bridgford, Worcester and York.
Almost Famous is giving out FREE burgers to Mancs with a very rare birthday next week
Almost Famous is dishing out free burgers in Manchester next week… but it’s only to the people with the rarest birthday of them all.
Leap Day babies, here’s another one for you.
It’s estimated that only around 4.1 million people worldwide were born on 29 February – which, of course, is also known as a Leap Day birthday – and if you just so happen to be one of those unfortunate, or in this case fortunate, people here in Manchester, then you’ll probably want to get yourself down to Almost Famous next week to celebrate.
That’s because the legendary burger joint is commemorating the special day that only comes around every four years by giving away free burger next Thursday.
The catch, however, is that you have to have been born on 29 February to claim the freebie.
Merely days after Manchester’s popular street food hall and social hub, Society, announced that it would be pouring free pints for Leap Day babies on their birthday, now Almost Famous is getting in on the action too by doing what it does best – serving up some of the heartiest burgers in the whole of the city centre.
Rallying up all Leap Day babies on its official social media platforms this morning, Almost Famous wrote: “Calling all Leap Year babies – get a free burger on 29 February with a valid ID proving it’s your birthday. Sometimes the best things only come round every four years.”
Almost Famous’ burgers are known and loved all across the UK, especially here in Manchester, and now, Leap Day babies who’ve missed out on years of celebrating get to reap the birthday benefits.
So-called ‘leapers’ wanting to bag their bargain burger next Thursday will just need to head on down to one of Almost Famous’ two Manchester city centre restaurants – either the Northern Quarter, or the one inside Great Northern Warehouse – and show the staff a valid form of ID that proves they were, in fact, born on that day.
The deal is expected to run all day, from the moment both Almost Famous sites open right until they close, and, as far as we can tell, the free burger offer is redeemable across the whole menu, so there’s a wide choice to pick from.
But don’t forget, like we’ve already mentioned, it’s just for one day only.
