Lager gets bum's rush 

Bottles of lager featuring a woman whose swimsuit can be scratched off to reveal her naked body have fallen foul of the Portman Group code of practice. Rubbel Sexy Lager has been withdrawn from shelves following the decision. 

Bottled Brakspear 

Cask ale Brakspear Bitter is to be made available in bottles in the off-trade for the first time. The 3.4% abv beer will be available in Sainsbury's from the end of the month. 

Bestway takeaway 

Bestway Cash & Carry has launched a tasting campaign called Take One To Taste for its own-label Cellar Estates range. Customers at Bestway and Batleys depots will be offered a free bottle to sample with each six-bottle case purchased.
