Yep had a 1698, becoming a regular drop at hatton towers, have your tesco altered the offers due to aldi price match?
I haven't a clue, I don't go in supermarkets (or most shops) i hate dithering people blocking the isles etc etc, SWMBO does the shopping i load the car and drive home (she doesn't drive) it works for us ;) and she buys me surprise beers (i haven't had many i wouldn't drink again.)

:laugh8: Down Hackney way, they have changed the offers, some beers have dropped out of the 4 for £6 because aldi have started stocking McEwans champ, and Lidl have started stocking St Austell proper job, used to be easy. a proper job to wet the whistle and a heavy brew to dry it. aheadbutt

yeah I get that, once saw a dad throw his full basket down the aisle, because the son couldn't decide his crisps, he should have taken up ten pin bowling.

I wouldn't mind trying Batemans XXXB have you tried it what are your thoughts?

Serving suggestion: With three malts and three hop varieties, Triple XB is bursting with aroma and flavour. The delicate aroma of biscuit and fruit unleashes a distinctive peppery, fruit flavour which is followed by earthy hops and a dry maltiness

It's my favourite cask ale by a long margin. Has to be well kept. Cracking beer. The glass in the picture was one of the ones they were giving away a couple of years ago when the increased its gravity back to the original 4.7%, if you drank 8 pints. I took one home after a single session with stamps to spare. 😁

Northern Monk New World IPA after a few hours drive down the M4. Not the best but very welcome and at 6.2% it is a short cut to the weekend 😁

Bottle of Owd Rodger and a Kolsh. Both higher ABV than I'm used to so Im calling this a night after two. Up early for a long drive to the lakes. Anyone any good local brewery recommendations?

I'm going to give you all an award if you'll just mention "HB" in your posts if it's a home brew unless it's obvious.
Yeah, I'm being pretty forward but I've had two beers.

First up, Sam Smith's Pale Ale. This is fantastic. I haven't had it in ages, and it really is good. Crystal malt and Sam Smith's yeast, classic ho's ( I'm going to guess at fuggles + late EKG). Yummy yum yum.
