MAKING THE NEWS: British press credit Spain biggest expat newspaper, EWN.
WE revealed how holidaymakers to Spain’s Benidorm on the Costa Blanca could see a pint as low as 64 cents shortly to entice business back.
And within hours, the Mirror, The Sun, Daily Mail, the Scottish Sun and Daily Star had all picked up the news, linking their own online stories back to our original article.
The message spread and Costa del Sol bar owners took notice, responding with what appears could break out as a beer trade war in the fight to attract back customers.
EWN broke the news and once again, the British press ran with the breaking piece, crediting the top English speaking newspaper in Spain, Euro Weekly News.
