BrewDog predicts ‘beer-fueled’ victory for Jeremy Corbyn

Published:  08 June, 2017

BrewDog has predicted victory for Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party in today’s General Election, based on the UK’s first ever poll of the British electorate powered by… beer.

In the run-up to the vote, BrewDog’s ‘polling team’ took to the streets conducting polls across the country, asking people which party would be getting their vote – offering a free can of the independent Scottish craft brewer’s flagship Punk IPA in return.

According to the ‘Punk-powered’ poll, Theresa May will be packing her bags tomorrow, as it predicted a landslide victory for Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party with 56% of the vote.

The Conservatives received 17% of the vote, with around one in eight – 13%, of the ‘beer-fueled’ voters saying they would be backing the Green Party.

With beer having the ability to bring out drinkers most candid side, this could be the most accurate election poll the world had ever seen, said co-founder James Watt.

“With elections come countless polls and sketchy analysis, with an almost guaranteed track record of inaccuracy - we thought giving people a Punk IPA before asking them to share who they will be voting for would result in a more honest response,” he said.

With its community-based prediction calculated, BrewDog has today turned its attention to encouraging the wider public to use their vote by offering a free beer to anyone who casts their vote.
