Brit' Word of the Day

Today's BWOTD is something you might be offered by a Brit':

"Would you like a brew?"

'A Brew' = a cup of hot tea

Please note that the word brew must be preceeded by an 'a' to mean this, as we also use brew in the usual way too.

And if you're in Scotland, you need to listen carefully, because they might have said "would you like irn bru?" which is a totally different thing.

Is it always a hot brew or do y'all ever drink iced tea?
