A sweltering tropical night. A campfire and cold one. And the inevitable, uninvited guests, swarming round and putting you off your punchline. Mosquitoes: the bane of the alfresco beer drinker.
The solution? Holiday in Papua New Guinea! There, the Heineken-owned SP Brewery has created an ingenious, eucalyptus-infused carton to deal with the pests. This natural insect repellent, sprayed onto the packaging, releases bug-bothering fumes when chucked on the flames. So now the national hobby of enjoying a fireside beer can continue without the malarial party crashers. Definitely tastier than Deet, too.
