    Greene King drops plan to sell 6p pints – and gives them out for free instead

    Greene King drops plan to sell 6p pints – and gives them out for free instead

    Greene King has been forced to drop plans to sell 6p pints to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee – and is now giving them out for free instead.

    The pub chain discovered its move to sell beer at 1952 prices – when Her Majesty was crowned – was not allowed under licensing laws. But it can give them away for free instead.

    Brits will have to act fast, as the deal is only valid today.

    A Greene King spokesperson said: “One of the ideas we had was for a promotion in 400 of our managed pubs where customers could buy one pint each of Greene King IPA for 6p today – the same price it was in 1952.

    "We thought this was a great way to celebrate this remarkable occasion and we’ve been thrilled at the response from customers.

    "However, we have some good news for everyone, which is that we will now be giving the Jubilee first pint of Greene King IPA away free of charge today, as we now understand it’s not permissible under the licensing act to charge the 6p.

    "Just remember to use the keyword '1952' and check whether your local pub is running the offer plus further details at greeneking-pubs.co.uk/my-local. Cheers everyone.”
