This does rather suggest that Waitrose beer prices are very dear before the discount. Many of these beers are £1.69 a bottle in Morrisons - and £5.50 for 4. And Brakspears Bitter - a staggering £1.92 in Waitrose for a 3.4% beer - is regularly available for 99p in Home Bargains :-)

Skinners beers have all been tasty when I've had them, Fullers Chiswick was spot on but I'd ask you to re-rate the Brakspear Triple, one of my favourites, maybe you had a bad bottle? But agree with the curmudgeon, Brakspear Bitter can often be found for a quid at Home Bargains etc.

Baron Orm said...

Agreed about the price of some of the ales, but on the plus side Waitrose also stock a number of beers that are tough to get hold of in the other supermarkets.

My issue with the Triple was the peachy aspect,I found it a bit to syrupy & peachy. Can't stand peachy or excessive elderflower in my beers (personal thing).

Will rerate it if I get a chance to pick it up cheap... ;)

Thats it, fingers crossed i'm heading there tomorrow. Some real bargins, and your right, i've never seen some of those, like Fullers Porter, this side of the severn bridge except in waitrose.

Baron Orm said...

Fuller's Porter is amazing (it's going to get a [baron rating 5/5] when I get round to writing up my notebook).

Make sure you get plenty!

Interestingly, the list of beers included in the offer appears to contain some other beers not mentioned above. (I'll say this quietly). e.g. Fuller's Vintage Ale. I assume this is a mistake and/or that these have been removed from the shelves before the offer started!

Here's the beers in the offer...
