Wetherspoons will stop serving one of our favourite spirits in its pubs later this month

Are Jagerbombs ever really a good idea? Probably not.

Do we still do them by the bucketload every time we cross the threshold of a night club? Absolutely.

A messy night out wouldn't be a messy night out without them, even if you always end up paying dearly for them the next day.

But your days of enjoying Jagermeister, a German herbal liqueur, at Wetherspoons pub will soon be numbered.

The company has announced that from 26 September, it will stop serving Jager in its pubs.

The reason?

Brexit.

Yes, really.

The pub chain is pro-Brexit and is planning on swapping certain European drinks for non-EU equivalents as the UK prepares to leave the common market.

Customers will be able to get a Jagerbomb at 'spoons in the future but they'll be served Strika, a British brand of herbal liqueur, with their Red Bull.

Yum.

The plan will also see French cognac brand Hennessy pulled from shelves in all Wetherspoons pubs to be replaced by something called Black Bottle, a popular Australian brandy.

It follows the company's decision to swap champagne for British sparkling wine.

The new UK and non-EU products like Strika will be cheaper for punters to buy than the name brand drinks they're replacing, Wetherspoons chairman Tim Martin has said.
