Everyone in Wales is due a free beer today…no, seriously

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better

They’re the only remaining Home Nation at Euro 2016 and a mouth-watering semi-final with Portugal will be watched by millions.

The last few days could hardly have been better for Wales fans. Or at least that’s what we thought, until Budweiser offered free beer to every single person in the country old enough to drink alcohol.

That’s right. After making history by emphatically beating Europe’s highest ranking team Belgium 3-1 in the quarter-finals, the loyal Welsh fans were told by Budweiser – a beer ironically produced by Belgium-based Anheuser-Busch InBev – that the drinks were on them.

If you’re Welsh (lucky you) and over the legal drinking age, all you need to do is fill out this form with your name, email address and postcode, but it’s only valid ahead of the big one with Portugal tonight.

Once redeemed fans will receive a coupon that can be exchanged in Tesco, One Stop or Co-Op for either:

  • a free 660ml bottle
  • a four-pack of 568ml cans
  • a four pack of 440ml cans
  • a four pack of 300ml bottles
  • a six 300ml bottle pack

There are also alcohol-free options available for those who don’t drink.

Judging by the reaction on social media, Welsh fans were obviously pretty happy with their prize.

But there was a bit of a backlash from some salty England supporters, who reckon they’ve got strong case for free beer themselves…

And where there’s free beer, there will always be the chancers. You can’t knock them for trying.
