I've always been fond of drinking free beer.It's like drinking normal beer but without having to do any of that parting with your money thing.Maybe it's the fact I'm smiling before I've even touched the beer that makes it taste better. Or maybe it's the thought that I can get guzzling safe in the knowledge I'll still have money left in case I actually need to buy some. Actually that can't be right, buying beer has always been the number one priority for me, who needs food or clothes eh?
In recent years the one true catholic and apostolic beer consumers' organisation has seen fit to reward the faithful with discount and free beer vouchers.
Though I'm no longer a regular 'Spoons drinker I've recently been able to make good use the money off vouchers, in the spirit of mutual aid
sharing them amongst my friends until a fiver's worth was gone. OK, it's only part of a pint free but it still brought joy to the world, and free pint vouchers appear occasionally online which bring even more joy.
Yet I've noticed some of my fellow beer nerds thoroughly disapprove of CAMRA beer vouchers, preferring to stick to moving money from their wallet to someone else's each time they get a pint. Can't say I understand it myself but I have to admire their dedication.
