The best bulk beer deals

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Speedy, Jun 2, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Ok, with the world cup looming, and many of planning large camp outs in fornt of the goggle box with beer and Indian\Chinese food, so lets address the issue of where to get the best beer deals from. Some rules fist though:

    1. National offers through large chains only (Tescos, Oddbins etc) unless rule 2 applies.
    2. Small garrison off licences can be mentioned for convienience sake.
    3. Decent beer only, no Kestral or White Lightning here please.

    My first offering is Booths, a large chain in the NW of England who specialise in really good food and beer. On England match days they are reducing all of their bottled beer (500ml bottles) to around the £1 or below mark, some badger beer is 75p a pint!! And believe me, Booths beer isles are a paradise of real ale and imported excellance.
     
  2. Costco - if you're a member, they sell crates of 16 500ml real ale (Shepherd Neame, Badger etc) for about 12 quid.
     
  3. iceland - carlsberg export £4.69 for 4 cans buy one get one free. Essentially 24 cans for under 15 quid
    asda - carlsberg export £2.48 for 4 cans
     
  4. Macro usually do great deals but you need a card
     
  5. Try the Wine and Beer Warehouse in Coquelles, just outside the French end of the Channel Tunnel. Usually around £5.50 a case for Stella (24x25cl). Fill up with very cheap petrol/diesel while you are there too.
    Any of the hypermarkets are very good on prices too. Try Auchan or Carrefour. There's also a Sainsburys and Tescos Wine Store.
    For a day out go by ship from Dover as it is probably quite a bit cheaper than the tunnel.
     
  6. It's hardly popping out for a take away and some beers is it?
     
  7. If you speak to people about buying beer in quantities, you'll tend to find that they will give you discount based on a bulk purchase

    Hope this helps
     
  8. This Website lists all the current deals on in all the major supermarkets.....

  9. Actually Speedy, it can be.

    We've gone over after work in an evening, straight into the hypermarkets, load up, have a meal and be back home in no time with a loaded car with a rattling boot. The car parks there are filled with UK registration cars whose owners are all doing the same thing.

    That reminds me, I'm on the last case of Stella, time to book another trip!
     
  10. Thats so you can drown your sorrows!!!
