A plea from students at St Andrews University has been answered by Tennent’s Lager.

The company has sent an emergency pallet of cans to St Andrews after students started a petition to get the lager back on the union bar.

The brand was contacted by members of the St Andrews University Tennent’s Lager Appreciation Society and is now promising to back the students’ campaign.

Tennent’s will be returning the support shown from students by offering vouchers to redeem a pint of Tennent’s Lager in bars across St Andrews.

The Tennent’s team will also be engaging with students on their social media channels and hope to see them enjoying a pint of ‘Scotland’s favourite’ across the town this week.

Claire Arnott, head of UK brand activation at Tennent’s said: “We were touched when we read the articles and petition so thought sending some beer was the least we could do. There’s more to come over the next couple of weeks.”

Thomas Coombes, the student behind the petition, added: “The opportunity to drink Tennent’s is one which should be available to any student in Scotland. To take it away from us is to deprive us all of the only thing which keeps the student population going through the long winter nights.”
