Guinness Offers Free Beer to NFC Phone Users


The Diageo-owned brand Guinness is running a one-month event in the UK which enables Android or BlackBerry NFC phone users to tap their phone on an NFC-enabled pub drinks dispenser. In this way, they may have the chance to get a free pint of the black stuff.

Drinkers at any of 20 pubs participating in the promotion can tap their phone to the harp logo on the Guinness bar tap and hit the on-screen enter button to enter the draw. In this way, they can participate in the event.

“If you win, enjoy a pint on us,” says Guinness. “Unfortunately this offer is not open to iPhone users.”
