BrewDog Is Going To 'Buy Everyone A Beer' Once Lockdown Is Over
The light at the end of this long tunnel for many of us is the prospect of going back to the pub.
Sadly, we don't yet know when this joyous day will come, however, we do know we've got a free beer waiting for us courtesy of BrewDog.
The Scottish brewery and pub chain has vowed to 'buy everyone a beer when this is all over'.
All you have to do to claim your beer is register with an email address on the BrewDog website and you will be sent a voucher code. Once this voucher code is claimed it can be used to get a free schooner (2/3 of a pint) of draught Punk IPA or Punk AF (a 0.5 percent ABV beer) in a BrewDog pub in the UK, USA, Germany, Ireland, France and Spain - whenever they're back open.
James Watt, BrewDog's co-founder, said: "We are in the midst of the biggest crisis to have faced society in living memory. Like always, we believe in the power of our community and that good beer has always brought people together.
When all of this is over.
We are going to buy everyone a beer.

"At BrewDog we have never underestimated the power of community, and its ability to ensure we don't feel alone even in times of trouble. We have to stand together now more than ever.
"Looking to the future, we want to make sure that when this is all over whether you're in Aberdeen or Berlin you can celebrate with friends and family, over a beer. Until then, stay home. Stay safe, and look after each other, see you on the other side."
Last month, BrewDog began making and distributing its own hand sanitiser free of charge to help fight the spread of coronavirus.
Outlining the action being taken by BrewDog in an interview with Sky News, James said: "We essentially lost 70 percent of our revenue overnight and we are doing all we can to adapt, to think about our resources differently, to try and survive, to try and save as many jobs as we can, to try and help the country through this.
We have now made & donated almost 200,000 bottles of @BrewDog hand sanitiser to NHS hospitals & health care charities.
We have had lots of people ask us about the process.

"So we've been using our distillery to make hand sanitiser and giving that away, we've been using some of our team members to go to the supermarkets and try and help keep beer on the shelves, we've been using our bar network as delivery hubs so people can get beer on demand at home."
Let's all bring some positivity, support and fun to anyone who might find themselves in isolation as a result of the coronavirus spread. Need some entertainment? Join Isolation Nation: https://www.facebook.com/groups/coronasupport/
