How To Get Free Pub Drinks Every Week This Summer

Wondering how to get free drinks this summer? We’ve got you…

Summer is slowly crawling out of bed and making an appearance, albeit a bit shy. 

With the warm weather teasing us out of our homes and halls, where else is a day better spent if not in a beer garden soaking up the sunshine? 

Maybe bring out your study notes and lap up the good vibes and vitamin D while acing your degree, or just enjoy some well-deserved rest from your studies.

And we know being a student isn’t the cheapest role, so we’ve put together a list of how you can get free drinks during the summer to make it a little easier on your bank account. 

Obviously, please drink responsibly and look out for one another.

What is your go-to summer drink?
