An award-winning East Anglian brewer is celebrating England’s epic victory over the All Blacks in the Rugby World Cup semi-final by giving away a free pint of beer.

In partnership with the Norwich Evening News, rugby fans can get a free pint of Woodforde's iconic Wherry, or the new rugby-inspired Pale Ale, 'Try-umph', in Friday's newspaper, which can then be redeemed up to and including the day England face South Africa in the final.

Free pints will be available in 15 participating Norwich pubs including The Murderers, The Fur and Feather and The Jubilee.

James Armitage, commercial and marketing director at Woodforde's Brewery, said: "We're always looking for ways to collaborate with local pubs in Norwich and to introduce our beers to a new audience, and to be able to do something special for rugby fans was an opportunity not to be missed.

"We hope England supporters across Norwich will enjoy the final and, of course, a Woodforde's beer!"

To redeem your free pint of Woodforde's Wherry or Try-umph, simply take your voucher from the Norwich Evening News with you to one of the participating pubs.
