One GEORDIE beer lover estimates that they own the world’s largest collection of limited edition Newcastle Brown Ale bottles.
Finance Director Michael Hewitt, 41, has 130 worth up to £10,000, including a 25 Squadron F3 and a ‘Sid the Sexist’ bottle from the Viz comic, both worth £200.
The father-of-three, who keeps them at home in Motherwell, said: “I’m confident nobody has more bottles than I do.”
“If I have the largest collection in the UK, I definitely have the largest collection in the world.
“Social media has made it easier to get hold of things.
“A lot of the bottles have been kept by the same people for a long time.
“A lot of people attach a sentimental value to these things.
“The first bottle I got was a testimonial bottle from Alan Shearer, there were two million of them.
“Some people think they’re worth a lot.”
