The Grosvenor Hotel in St Kilda is commemorating ANZAC Day with free beer, but it has a catch — the beachside pub is only giving out free pots from the first siren until the first team scores in the ANZAC Day clash. The iconic AFL event is the second biggest game of the season — after the grand final, of course — and will see Essendon and Collingwood go head-to-head for the 23rd year running.
If there's one situation where you don't want you team to score, it's this. Not many (if any?) quarters finish scoreless, so luckily there's more to the deal. The pub is serving up $10 pints all day and is holding an 11am Publican's Toast, which will pay respect to the diggers.
If you're there the night before, the same free pot-deal will apply (for the Melbourne vs Richmond game) and $15 pizzas will be available all night.
