I’ve got one of those newfangled credit cards with a chip in it. That means every time I want to use it I have to swipe it and then have an error message pop up telling me I have to insert it into a different part of the machine and then have the machine beep at me angrily. Everything would be so much easier if I could pay with, say, a piece of fruit. And tomorrow in the UK, for one night only you’ll be able to do that.
Brewdog, the Scottish brewery that gained international acclaim for brewing a beer so alcoholic it you could use it to clean out a wound (that you probably incurred after drinking it) released a new grapefruit IPA called Elvis Juice and on Friday, anyone who brings a grapefruit with them to the bar can use the citrus to pay for their first half pint.
I know what you’re saying “what kind of deal is half a pint?” Look, I’ve been to a grocery store. Grapefruits are cheap. Craft beer is not. We should all take what we can get.
