Free beer if Aussies win Ashes
Sydney - An Australian brewer on Tuesday offered a free beer to every adult in the country if Australia beat England in the upcoming Ashes.
VB pledged to "shout the nation" if Australia win back the coveted trophy in the five-Test series, starting on November 25.
"This summer, when the final wicket falls and the Aussies lift the urn triumphantly, Australia's best cold beer pledges to 'shout the nation'," the company said.
"That's one ice-cold VB for every eligible person of drinking age, and one huge celebration of the rightful return of the Ashes."
Anyone over 18 can use a coupon printed in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide local newspapers on December 8 and 9 to claim their free 375 millilitre can or bottle of beer.
Australia have slipped below England in the Test rankings and are battling a raft of injuries and poor form ahead of the series. However, England have not won a series in Australia in 24 years.
The series is known for its light-hearted stunts. Last month, Australia beamed a picture of captain Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke onto London's Big Ben with the message, "Don't forget to pack the urn".
