Guinness promotes non-alcoholic beer in Northern Ireland as part of a Christmas road safety campaign.

The campaign was launched by Northern Ireland Minister for Transport Peter Bottomley who is a severe critic of the high levels of drink driving. The minister believes that the campaign could result in a reduction in road deaths of up to a third.

I think that's one good reason to be buying the Kaliber.

The campaign involves collecting ring pulls from cans of the non-alcoholic beer Kaliber and getting £1 worth of unleaded BP petrol.

John Lavery Managing Director of Guinness Northern Ireland rejects any criticism that this is just a publicity stunt to sell more drink. He insists Guinness are wholeheartedly behind the campaign to prevent people from drinking and driving.
