If you weren’t aware, this weekend Boat Quay will erupt in festivities to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and promises to see a sea of shamrock green converge to Singapore’s iconic riverside lifestyle destination for fun and plenty of Guinness. And here’s even better news – to celebrate Guinness will be offering a free pint to revelers in its biggest ever giveaway on this island.
From 13 March to 17 March, Guinness will be giving away 4,000 pints of its iconic dark brew daily, making it over 20,000 pints in total (that’s over 11,000 litres) over those five days. All you need to do is to download SingTel’s mWallet app – available on Apple’s App Store or Android’s Google Play – to redeem your free pint. Eligible customers (those over 18) will be able to redeem their pint and view on the app the list of outlets across the island where you can pick up your complimentary Guinness, so even those of us who can’t go down to Boat Quay can join in and go sláinte!
“St. Patrick’s Festival is the perfect time for friends and loved ones to get together over great food, great music, and of course, the quintessential drink of the season – great Guinness. This year, to celebrate the spirit of the ‘Friendliest Day of the Year’, we are thrilled to be running our biggest ever Guinness giveaway,” says Rene de Monchy, Head of Marketing, Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore. “What better way to get everyone in on the celebrations than to invite over 20,000 people to join us for a pint?”
If you’re using a BlackBerry or Windows Phone smartphone, well, sucks to be you. At least you’d fit in with the season by being green… with envy.
