Heinz has asked a leading drinks expert to match beers with its new range of Spicy Beanz.

Recommendations include drinking Mann's Original Brown Ale with Heinz's 'Red Hot Balls'. This tipple is not too sweet, apparently, which means it will complement the chilli flavours in this charmingly named spin on the canned classic. Heinz has even built the first-ever mobile beans bar, serving perfectly poured pints of beans on tap, which will tour universities.

Beer and baked beans? As if students needed any encouragement...
