Black Country pubs giving free drinks to designated drivers this Christmas

Written by on November 19, 2019

With the Christmas period coming up, it can be a nightmare getting a taxi – so when someone offers to be the designated driver it’s a huge relief.

It’s not the best job in the world though – you’re having to deal with your drunken friends and family, and it’s not even a cheap night out unless you’re on tap water.

Well, to give a little incentive to those helping with rides home this Christmas, Greene King pubs in the Black Country are offering nominated drivers free drinks over the festive period.

Popular brands including Greene King Local Pubs, Hungry Horse, Chef & Brewer and Farmhouse Inns, are all taking part in the promotion, which runs until last orders on January 1, 2020.

To get a free drink, all you have to do is show your keys at the bar when you buy any 330ml bottles of Coca-Cola Original Taste, Diet Coke, Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Heineken 0.0 or 275ml bottles of Appletiser.

In a bid to see the number of drink drivers reduce, the pub giant has teamed up with Coca-Cola for its 10th annual Christmas anti-drink drive campaign, as well as Heineken for the first time.

That means you can enjoy a bottle of beer and feel part of the festivities, while still being safe to drive yourself and your friends home.

Cindy Tervoort, Marketing Director, HEINEKEN, said: “We are really proud to be part of this initiative with Greene King and to be able to offer Heineken® 0.0 to a growing consumer demographic during the festive period.

“As many people unite in bars across the country during the Christmas party season, we feel it’s important to offer a choice for everyone at this time of year whilst also encouraging people to be safe on the roads.”

Phil Thomas, Greene King’s chief commercial officer, said: “As a leading pub company, we have an important role to play in helping to promote responsible drinking and we have given away around a quarter of a million free Coca Cola products over the past decade as part of the Designated Driver campaign.

“We have seen a huge increase in the popularity of low and no-alcohol products in our pubs.

“Our range now offers more than 10 different low and no-alcohol products including beers, wines and ciders, so we are really excited to add Heineken 0.0 to our Designated Driver offering as we celebrate this significant milestone of the campaign.”
