AN INDEPENDENT brewery with a bar in York has extended its free beer scheme.

BrewDog, which has a venue in Micklegate, is giving drinkers in York the chance to swap any mainstream lager for a pint of its new headliner beer, Lost Lager.

Initially launched on Wednesday as a one-day event, the Bad Beer Amnesty will run until Sunday, September 16.

Drinkers can leave their unwanted cans of beer in the 'Bad Beer Bin', in exchange for a pint of the brewery's latest lager.

James Watt, BrewDog cofounder, said: "We have been working hard on nailing this recipe for months, and we know anyone who has a taste of Lost Lager will never look back."
