It’s officially National Pub Fortnight and to celebrate our client, Ei Publican Partnerships, is giving away 100,000 free drinks.

As well as earning yourself a refreshing beverage you can also have a go at our ‘Are you a drinker or a thinker?’ quiz. The aim of the game is to decide whether the wise words came from your local pub landlord or a great thinker. To play the game click the image below:Quiz pic

National Pub Fortnight runs until Sunday 4th August and embraces everything we love about the great British boozer. The BBI engagement team has been working hard to spread the word about the campaign. So far, it’s been a record-breaking year with more than 120 pieces of news coverage in the likes of The Sun, Daily Mirror, i, and the Daily Star.BBI_Blog_Images_Hub_page_1640x1120_X2_Blog_hero_1640x1120_X2 copy 3 (1)

The team also took the campaign to people’s television screens. BBC News South West visited one of our five ‘hero’ pubs which is taking part in our ‘Alternative Happy Hour’.

The Kings Arms in Okehampton, Devon, is running a happy hour with a twist. Locals are encouraged to socialise with each other with incentives to switch off mobile phones, free pool and jukebox are on offer as well as complimentary ‘happy’ newspapers and board games are provided to play with other pub-goers.

So, why wait? Jump online and claim a free drink on us and raise a glass to the great British pub.
