Join in the fun on National Young’s Day this September, when the famous London brewery celebrates its birthday with parties at five of its South London pubs
If you happen to live near a Young’s pub in South London, put 17 September in the diary. To celebrate its 184th year, the brewery will be hosting parties at its pubs in Wandsworth, Streatham, Earlsfield, Clapham and Dulwich. Guests can expect local brews on tap, beer tastings from the Young’s Beer Ambassadors, burgers and curly fries from the experts at Burger Shack and entertainment which can be enjoyed in the great gardens at these specially selected spots.
Best of all, the pubs will be giving out free pints throughout the day! (Sign up for a voucher on 16 September at youngs.co.uk/youngsday.) Also keep an eye out for VIP tickets which will be given away for each party via Twitter. These will offer entry into exclusive areas, with complimentary burgers and drinks plus goody bags.
Here’s an overview of what’s on at the five National Young’s Day parties:
