Keeping breweries in business for more than 30 years
Tesco in west london have Youngs -double chocolate stout at Â£1.50 a bottle.never saw it in the big supermarkets before and usually Â£4.50 in pubs if you can find it.
I found the bottled version very sweet and won't be getting any more of them from Tesco.
Try the Fuller's ESB or 1849 on multibuy for a much better beer.
These breweries that take part in this sharp practice are not doing themselves any favours. I used to quite like Brains SA gold from the supermarket and on draught but have boycotted it since the reduction in strength. The same goes for bottled Lees Brewers Dark, which was reduced from 3.0% (or was it 3.2%) to 2.8% and the flavour changed from a nice bottled mild to a rubbish brown ale. I actually complained to Lees brewery about this and got the usual brush off from some marketing executive moron.

I spotted a new one (or one I hadn't noticed before) in Tesco yesterday, It's Tesco Finest American IPA (9.2%) and is on multibuy 4 for Â£6 at least until the end of the month. I think the single price was Â£1.99. It's Brewdog's Hardcore IPA rebadged and I am going to try some next week, carefully ignoring the idiotic description that the brewery supplies. Obviously it's in 330ml bottles rather than 500ml. Brewdog brewery are charging Â£15 for 6 bottles of Hardcore and I didn't bother to check if that includes delivery.
Fans of strong ones may like to know that the legendary Old Tom is also on the same multibuy, and I think ASDA have started doing it at 2 for Â£3.

Don't know if this applies nationally, but my local Asda has re-started the '4 for Â£5' offer, after a hiatus of several years. They also appear to be showcasing local beers a lot more - upmarket shelving etc. Just hope it lasts. Nice to stock up on Acorn Gorlovka & Old Moor Porter, Saltaire Cascade and Ossett Treacle Stout.
