This year Bombardier launched a brand spanking new advertising campaign starring Rik Mayall as William Charles Bedford, better known as The Bombardier. Just like the beer the Bombardier is English, ever reliable and well… damn tasty.

After leading his troops to victory on the battlefield, he then taught us how to improve the length of your drive with The Bombardier’s Guide to Golf. The latest video to come out of the Bedford based brewery sees this hero laying down the weapons and picking up the spatula for a BBQ to be remembered…
