There is just one day left to be in with a chance of winning £10,000 at two Greene King pubs in Bury as well as a nearby boozer in Bolton.

The giveaway, set up by Ice Breaker Pale Ale, launched a survey to find out whether Brits thought beer tasted better in a beer garden when they are sat outdoors.

The data found that 89 per cent agreed with this.

Alongside uncovering the beer garden as the perfect spot for making a drink taste better, the ideal time to consume a drink for maximum enjoyment has been revealed to be 6pm, with 20 per cent of Brits choosing this as the optimum time.

The research has been conducted by Ice Breaker Pale Ale – an ale, brewed by national brewery and pub company, Greene King.

As part of the "Scan The Anchor" competition by Ice Breaker, customers will be in with a chance of winning £10,000 if they purchase a pint or bottle of Ice Breaker Pale Ale and scan the anchor on the logo.
