A GEORDIE beer lover reckons he has the world’s biggest 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 Viz comic, both valued at £200.
The dad of three, who keeps them at home in Motherwell, said: “I’m confident no one has more bottles than me.”
“If I’ve got the biggest collection in the UK then I’ve definitely got the biggest 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 put sentimental value on these things.
“The first bottle I got was an Alan Shearer testimonial bottle, there were two million of them.
“Some people think they’re worth loads.”
