Beer-based poll predicts remain vote for EU referendum

A beer-based poll has predicted Britain will vote to stay in the EU in tomorrow's EU referendum.

It has announced that the In ale has been the best seller of the three, with the Aire Bar in Leeds reporting a 68% In to 32% Out split earlier this month. The Manchester-based Nip and Tipple gave drinkers a choice of all three beers and reported it had sold out of In.

Brudenell Social Club, the official polling station in Leeds and beer polling station for Little Valley, reported it was forced to switch its pump clips at the bar to ensure they sold the Out beer, with students in particular making an effort to ensure the cask of In was emptied.

Sue Cooper, co-owner and founder of Little Valley Brewery, said: "We know that a lot of people might not be planning to cast their vote in this debate, most probably because they simply don't know enough about it. We want to get the country talking - it's something we feel incredibly strongly about and will definitely be voting to stay when the time comes."

A similar poll was conducted with pies at restaurant group Square Pie, with the exit 'out' pie slightly ahead in sales ahead of the referendum.
