    Default Take-Out Beer Containers

    I thought if I can't support my local pub by being there as much as I would like I could pop in and get my favourite cask ale in a takeaway container.

    I found a website called baractivity that sells 2-pint beer cartons but they are aimed at publicans - £39.90 for 100 cartons.

    What suitable alternatives would you suggest?
    Waes hael!

    A few pubs round here do 2 or 4 pint reusable plastic demi-jon type containers for around £2 a pop , failing that i find an old lemonade bottle works fine

    Back when we first started and Ray drove to pubs so needed his beer for later, we used pint milk bottles. Got funny looks off publicans getting a plastic pint milk bottle to fill up, but it worked well.

    Alcohol doesn't solve problems .... but then again, neither does milk.

    I don't quite get it Andy. If you are paying the bar price, why not drink it there?

    We had the 4-pint 'demi-john' style containers when I worked & lived at The Nelson (circa 1979), with a screw top and that push-down valve seal which never really worked.

    The Evening Star does take-outs in 2&4 pint plastic 'milk' containers. I hope to be there at opening time next Sat, before it gets as rammed as was the case on Strongers' visit.

    Time limitations and the need to be at home. You're right though, the cost is prohibitive compared to bottled beers.

    Sometimes, when I've been invited round to a beer loving friends house for a meal, I've turned up with four pints of carry out instead of wine. Works really well.

    What do you drink after the first hour?

    Then we move onto red wine. Unfortunately, I tend to drink it far to quickly unless I've had a couple of beers first. Not recommended with 14% bruisers.
