A new campaign by Guinness has been providing pub-goers with the opportunity to win a free pint of the company's stout with the help of an NFC-enabled smartphone.

NFC tags have been fitted to the beer taps at a number of participating pubs around the UK. Upon tapping the tags, users are instructed to download an application for a chance to win a free pint of Guinnes.

The promotion is exclusively open to NFC-enabled phones running Android and BlackBerry OS, and users are able to enter for a chance of a free pint once per day during the promotional period. Free pints will be available until the 31st of August, 2013.

The full list of participating pubs can be found on the Guinness promotional website.
