Free pints are up for grabs in five pubs across Luton and Dunstable, as long as you say the magic words.

British pub and brewing company Greene King has partnered with football legend Peter Crouch to give free beer to customers. The giveaway was triggered after the rain fell into a 9ft pint glass-shaped raindrop detector in Manchester.

This morning at around 8am, the detector lit up – signalling the start of the free pints flowing across the country.

Former England footballer and avid pub lover, Peter Crouch, said: “Having experienced playing football at the highest level for England, I know how much the nation loves their sport and hates the weather, so it’s no surprise to see that’s what people chat about at the pub most.

“There’s no better place to go on a rainy day than a cosy pub to enjoy a well-earned drink, I’ll be on tenterhooks looking out for the rain on Monday, with 100,000 free pints up for grabs, there’s only one place I’ll be heading when the rain drops start to fall.”

Punters in Luton and Dunstable can go to any of the Greene Kings pubs in the area, including Jolly Topers, Hansom Cab, Jolly Milliner, Ewe & Lamb and The Star, in Chalton.
