Caption Competition 6: The Nanny State

Win a case of BrewDog beer and a BrewDog t-shirt! This photo comes courtesy of our friends (thanks Daniel and Carl) at www.schnille.se , Schille och Schmak - 2 of Sweden's finest craft beer evangelists. Their blog is awesome and I am eternally grateful for the google translate function, even though the Russian google translator once came up with 'a dog is the father of James' http://www.brewdog.com/blog-article.php?id=194 

*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.

Nanny State: Youths will need to consume at least 10 bottles before being pissed enough to start harassing you. So why not hand them out in YOUR neighbourhood?

Nuclear fallout from WW3 caused fresh water supplies to become highly radioactive, so the survivors were forced to find an alternative. Post-apocolyptic life may not be so bad after all..
