Eagle-eyed cinema goers have been posting online that it seems Avengers: Endgame star Thor is a fan of Scottish drinks.

The Asgardian is spotted with a half bottle of Irn-Bru before downing a bottle of Innis & Gunn in the new Marvel blockbuster, which was released on Friday.

And to commemorate the occasion, Innis & Gunn are now offering beer fans in Edinburgh the chance to get their hands on a free bottle.

To celebrate the end-Thor-sement, Innis & Gunn is offering a free bottle of The Original to anyone (over the age of 18) visiting the Innis & Gunn Brewery Taproom in Glasgow, Edinburgh or Dundee this weekend (3-5 May). All they need to do is ask for a ‘Beer of Kings’ on arrival.

Thor Innis & Gunn

Dougal Gunn Sharp, Innis & Gunn founder and Master Brewer, said: “As brand endorsements go, this one is pretty God. Avengers: Endgame is amazing, and to see one of the best-loved characters enjoying one of our best-loved beers is pretty special.

“We’re so pleased we made it into what is undoubtedly one of the major cultural events of the year that we’d like to give everyone of drinking age the opportunity to enjoy one of our beers for free.

“So, just pop into the Innis & Gunn Brewery Taproom on Lothian Road in Edinburgh and ask for a Beer of Kings at the bar.

“Or, if you want to go a step further and come dressed as the man himself we’ll cover your first round. Just don’t get hammered.”
