You can get it not protecting your stumps, you can get it ignoring the umps – Victoria Bitter for the English
Australia’s most famous beer has created a limited-edition run just for the English.
England Bitter will be shipped to Old Blighty today.
To ensure England’s men’s cricketers are aware of the offer, VB will also shortly release a rejigged version of its iconic jingle in the great tradition of banter between our two great cricketing nations. We’ve also taken out full-page ads in major Australian newspapers this morning ahead of the third test starting at Headingley.
It follows English coach Brendon McCullum’s refusal to have a beer with the Aussies.
“We know the English are bitter about the Lord’s Test, but when they’re feeling less bitter we’ve got a beer to shout them … our fresh new England Bitter”, said VB Marketing Manager Marc Lord.
“England Bitter has got their name on it and we’re sending a few slabs to the English Cricket Team to enjoy once they’ve cooled off.
“We raise our glass to the whole Australian team for securing a famous win in the second test, and wish them the best of luck in winning the series.”
Free England Bitter t-shirts will also be given out today to Aussie fans at Headingley.
