*UPDATE - WINNER ANNOUNCED*

When Carl joined the police force, he took the mission statement - To Protect and Serve - a little too literally...

If you need inspiration, here is the Nanny State Label Text:

A paranoid hop overdose for a PC generation

Society today is an all too dangerous place.

ASBO-ed three year olds loitering in alley ways, CCTV recording our every move and misplaced suitcases grinding entire public transport infrastructures to a halt. 

No wonder you've been reduced to a quivering wreck, battening down the hatches at three in the afternoon with Ofcom on speed dial.

At BrewDog we appreciate your inability to know your limits - especially when it comes to alcohol – which is why we've created Nanny State.

This idiosyncratic little beer is a gentle smack in the right direction. 

It's time to draw your net curtains, sit back with Nanny and watch your favourite episode of Last Of The Summer Wine. It's finally safe to enjoy alcohol again.

Please note: BrewDog recommends that you only drink this beer whilst wearing the necessary personal protective equipment and in a premises that has passed a full health and safety risk assessment for optimum enjoyment.
