BrewDog will give free beer to anyone who votes in the General Election on Thursday

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month (or just haven’t left the pub), there is a general election in the UK on Thursday, June 8.

Regardless of whether Labour win or the Conservatives remain in power, the main challenge will be to lead Britain into life after the European Union.

Whether you have an iota of interest in politics or not, it’s kind of a big deal.

In fact, BrewDog want people to head out to the polls and vote so badly they’ll give you a free beer if you do so.

In a statement , BrewDog have said to claim your free pint of “Punk IPA voters can take a picture of themselves outside their polling stations and show it to bar staff at any BrewDog bar.”

The offer continues into Friday so you can claim your free beer to either celebrate the result or contribute towards drowning your sorrows.

BrewDog is also doing an alternative election poll. It aims to enhance the accuracy of results by offering participants free beer.

The BrewGov poll

  • Following a series of recent political shocks in which established and recognised opinion polls failed to accurately predict the outcome, BrewDog hopes to garner a more open response from those taking part by putting a can of Punk IPA in their hand.
  • Armed with cans of Punk IPA to hand to participants before they respond, the ‘BrewGov’ poll will be conducted by a dedicated team from BrewDog’s bar staff, who will take to the streets outside its bars throughout the UK.
  • The data will be collated on 7th of June and the brewer intends to ‘call’ the results of the election before the polling stations open on 8th of June.

Explaining the decision, co-founder James Watt said: “The political scene could do with more candour and honesty and recent political polls have been spectacularly off target, so we’re running the first ever poll with added craft beer. We believe everyone is more truthful and candid with a beer in their hand and we’re confident the results taken from outside our bars across the country will provide a more accurate picture of voting intention than any of the usual boring polls.”

“Whatever your views, whatever your status, every vote was created equal. An election is a key moment for those that feel marginalized or under represented to stand up and be counted; so we want to encourage and reward those making their voices heard on 8th of June.”
