BuymeaBeer.com launched on Thursday at Corney & Barrow in Broadgate Circle, in the City of London. It works by tapping in your credit card number, selecting a friend’s favourite drink and keying in the friend’s mobile number. The friend gets a text within minutes with an encrypted code which they can take to any of Corney’s 11 City wine bars to exchange for a drink. The Daily Telegraph 25/09/04 page 35 (City Life)
