For over 20 years Scottish & Newcastle has given its retired workers vouchers worth around $55.00 that were redeemable at supermarkets for beer and ciders. Because of the growing numbers of retirees the brewery has axed the program pissing off many of those that took advantage of the free beer. Many of the pensioners like Thomas Cook give the beer as gifts for Christmas, now they will go without. They might want to rethink this plan in the accounting office of Scottish & Newcastle. The last time somebody started screwing with the Scottish they got Braveheart.
