    Ho ho, I remember prior to no-deposit bottles becoming popular, kids would remove returned bottles from the back of shops and collect their thruppence again at the front, of course I was a good laddie and never did anything like that

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    I have a friend who lives in Denmark, where a similar scheme has run for years, and some supermarkets even have automatic crateful's of bottles return machines. It will be interesting to see just how the Scottish Borders manages though, or I can see border raids on English bottle banks becoming common!
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    You change the barcode to detect origin. I found this out on Europe road trip thinking I could cash in on bottles of pop drunk around Europe on way home in Germany where you pay fee and cash out. Yeah it doesn't work so I just put them all in my recycling tub when I got home.

    There was massive organised crime gang that led to this and bought about changes, you could of course still replicate a country origin label to try and fool the machine.

    If they sell that particular bottle in the supermarket, you'll get your deposit back from the machine.

    If not, you won't, which is probably fair enough...

    Not exactly bargain beer but my local M &S has removed all but 6 of the British bottled beers they sell and stocked up with craft beer tins.This is a further sign that craft beer(whether you like it or not ) is making big inroads against the regional brewers who usually sell to Marks.

    I don't know if this is national but my local Tesco is knocking out tins of Crate IPA, Pale and Session IPA for 50p. I make that 0.86p,a pint.

    Same offer in my local Tesco. Absolute bargain at that price - it would be rude not to buy some!

    I've only bought the IPA and some don't seem to have a BB date. Those that do it's only a month away. A 6% beer is hardly likely to go off.
