I was in ASDA Newton Mearns this evening and there is a fine selection of ales selling for £1. Ales such as McEwans No 1 Champion, Innis & Gunn, Belhaven 80/, Belhaven Twisted, Belhaven Fruit Beer, Guiness Foreign extra, Wychwood Goliath, Newcastle Brown Ale, Cobra amongs others. Some of these available online.

Reckon beers going for £1 will differ accordng to location. In Newton Mearns there is plenty of Scottish ales certainly going for £1. Even better for me got 10% staff discount via my wife hence beer just for 90p! Fridge now well stocked with beer.

Yeah I just picked some up today, they also have Old speckled Hen, Marstons pedigree, St peters organic ale, spitfire, bishops finger and Tangle foot (which is a badger beer that comes with a 50p of next purchase voucher, so your next one will only cost 50p.)

Yeah its a pity they have to carbonate it in bottles

Real Ale is ceratinly not "draught" it is by definition cask ale but can also cover bottled conditioned beers. You'll find that most of these bottled beers on sale are brewed to be served as cask "real" ales and in bottled state certainly pass the taste test. I've been a member of CAMRA and been going to CAMRA beer festivals for nearly 20 years now so can confirm that these ales are great for £1 especially the McEwans No 1 Champion and Innis and Gunn.

Thanks for the heads-up OP. There was a cracking selection in Burton this morning, I have topped up my stocks of Bishops Finger, Spitfire, and St Peters organic - all at £1 per bottle.

Cheers,

White.

Agreed. If it's made by men with unkempt hair, beards, wearing baggy jumpers and doing really smelly guffs - it is Real Ale.

Cracking stuff, this and the Sainsbury 3 for 2 deal at the moment is really floating my boat :D
#8
I can second that. I make beer and you can add a bit more sugar to the bottle when you bottle it to keep it fresh, I think it means it will make sure there is a layer above the beer between it and the air so it doesnt go off, its not carbonated, its all good :)
Nothing on a draught admittedly
banned#9
Singing Bitter, Lager, Cider, Ale, Stout...designer drinks, I'd rather drink nout.
#10

Unless of course they're bottle conditioned(the ones with sediment in the bottom).

[EDIT]Beaten to that comment, damn one handed typing while on the phone :)

Oh stop nit-picking you lot and go and buy some smashing bottles of beer for £1.
#14
I'd thoroughly recommend the Asda Whitechapel Porter if you like porters/stouts. Great value at £1 a bottle.

#17
Yummy yummy. Heat and rep :D
#18
Hot deal indeed.
Thanks OP
Newcastle Brown:thumbsup:
#19
good deal no question - have some heat!
#20
Five various bottles bought, no Speckled Hen left though :(
#21
they also have 4 bottles of Ashanti Japanese beer for £2 - that's pretty hot

oh ..... and sorry to real ale guys for going off topic.
#22
Very disappointing trip to ASDA for me (was going anyway so not a wasted trip). Unfortunately they were sold out of the vast majority of the £1 stuff, hope its still on next week and they get some more stock in.

On the plus side it was good to find the large bottles of hoegarden and leffe reduced further to £2 a bottle. I realise that's no good if you're after the ale but a damn fine price if you like it.

Yes, that's a good price. It's worth noting that Asahi is actually brewed in the UK by Shepherd Neame:

Also OT, Asda have packs of 6 x 275ml bottles of Carlsberg Export for £2.50. Obviously this is the equivalent of a pack of 18 bottles for £7.50. However the 18 packs are £10 or more in all the major supermarkets, including Asda.

slightly off-topic but whilst we're discussing manly stuff, I couldn't let this slip by without pointing out that one-handed typing is a useful art. :|
#25
Great offer, heat added.

Stocked up with 10 bottles of Speckled Hen and 10 Spitfire :)
#26
So can u CAMRA guys answer why it has to be 'fizzy' in bottles but not on draught, it makes a huge diff to me, much prefer it without the lager fizz.
#27
Some responses I'd like to make on comments so far :

First of all thanks to everyone as this is my first hotukdeal submission.

A1 : without getting too technical here is a simple tip if you like to drink your bottled beer more like cask conditioned then simply open the bottle and pour into a nice big pint glass - camra festival ones are best as they are oversized (no short measures with us). Leave the beer in the glass for approx 1 hour and it should be a lot flatter "close to zero fizz" like most cask served ales. Essentially I treat ale in the same manner as wine as both taste much better when left in a glass at room temp to "breathe" for at least 1 hour. If you prefer your refreshment to be cooler then simply leave the glass in the fridge. Like most things in life good things are worth waiting for and require just a bit of patience and care to get the end pefect results.

Personally I chill all my bottled beer in a fridge and pour out a bottle into a Camra oversized pint glass (use normal pint glass if you don't have one) drink half of the contents in chilled state then leave for another hour and come back to it at more less room temp and at a more flatter state. I like a bit of both chilled and room temp refreshment and wow often the taste difference between both is tremendous with in most cases but not always the latter room temp ale being best. Makes trying new bottled ales more fun and recommend to everyone to give it a go and enjoy.

To Mark43 and anyone else who may find that stock levels of the £1 beers in ASDA to be low or non existent then just check close by on other shelves to see if they have stocked the "Rollback" beer/ale elsewhere. In my local Newton Mearns ASDA they were out of Innis and Gunn at the normal section were they sell bottled ale but further along facing the tills I found all the beers/ale on rollback incl Innis and Gunn. Also just ask customer services too see if they have stock and they should give better advice and even get you what you are looking for. Staff in my local store are always polite and helpful.

Glad everyone enjoying the £1 deal for beer/ale.

Cheers, Saluti e Cin Cin

Thanks thats a good tip as I've noticed reduced stuff spread out before. Unfortunately I couldnt see it anywhere else on this occassion and they also had the little labels they add over the normal price label saying this item is out of stock.

Ah well, hope it continues for a bit as I'm getting quite into Ale at the moment. Voted hot anyways as a great deal.
#29
Thanks Max top tip , I usually do find the bottom half of my pint to be more enjoyable for those reasons...cheers!
#30
ASDA also have 12 x 275 bottles of Bombardier for £6.00 which is a better deal than £1 for a 500ml bottle.
#31
If Mcewans Champion is £1 a bottle that is excellent price :)

Thats all i drink nowadays it may be 7.3% but its taste is not as strong as most people think :)

Will take a trip out tomorrow i see on the website it is 3 for £4 so i guess it will be the same instore.

Hot for me
