Wetherspoon to cut beer and vodka prices to mark Brexit


WETHERSPOON is slashing the price of 12 drinks, including certain beers and vodkas, from January 31 to mark Brexit taking place the same day.

Its so-called “Let’s stay friends” offer will cut around 60p off certain drinks which originate in European countries, as well as from across the UK.

Customers will see the discounted prices in all of the company’s 870 pubs across Britain, but sadly it’s not a permanent price cut as the promotion will end on February 29.

Estrella Galicia, Beck’s, Peroni, Tyskie, Jameson Irish Whiskey, and Grey Goose Vodka are among the drinks included in the offer – see the box below for the full list.

Prices vary by Wetherspoon with boozers in London and the south east typically having higher prices.

But under the deal, 700 branches will offer Beck’s for £1.49, for example, Peroni at £1.99, and a pint of Ruddles (England) for £1.49.

Meanwhile, Grey Goose Vodka plus a mixer will cost £2.99.

Wetherspoon chairman Tim Martin said: “Many of our customers are keen to celebrate Brexit.

“At the same time we want to remain friends with our European neighbours and offer a range of drinks at an excellent price.”

Mr Martin, a staunch supporter of Brexit, had promised to slash beer prices if the UK left the European Union (EU) by October 31, 2019 – but this deadline was of course delayed.

This was the second push back after Britain had been due to leave the EU on 31 March, 2019.

Britain is now expected to exit the EU on January 31.

A special Brexit 50p coin will also be released on the same day to mark the occasion.
