The Lidl in East Ham is also selling Shepherd Neame Masterbrew for £1 a bottle, and the 7% Shepherd Neame Christmas Ale for £1.19. 500ml bottles. I don't know about other Lidls, must be Xmas stock left over.

Always nice to find ale at £1 a bottle.

When did all the brewery's get together and decide to rip us off? , all the bottles used to be 568ml(1 pint) when did they all round it down to 500ml and how come we let them get away wth it?.

Hot Deal btw ;)

As I recall, about the same time supermarkets started having to print the price per kilo rather than per pound? Must have been more than 10 years ago. Do you not buy much beer? :)

Oh, and Theakston XB is not a particularly pleasant beer - a strong chemical taste, OK for £1 though.

Sainsburys and Asda have been doing a £1 ale deal since the summer, varying the product every couple of weeks or so. Asda do about 3 at a time, Sainsburys one or two.

Asda have been doing the Toad's Croak for ages though.

Giving hot.

If you want a huge choice, go to Roys at Wroxham. Has a whole aisle devoted to ales, can get some unique ones there.

Great but last time I went in Netto chasing a deal on here the stench was unbearable. They didn't have the deal either. Just not worth it to possibly save a few pennies.

Metrication had been, to some extent, taking place in Britain before 1979. However, as a necessity of our membership of what was then the European Economic Community (EEC) we were required to sign the European Units of Measure Directive (Council Directive 80/181/EEC) which legislated on which units of measurement (metric) could (and should) be used on certain products and in certain situations in this country. The Directive did also allow for the retention of dual labelling - i.e. Metric and Imperial units on the same product.

In short this original directive has been amended numerous times over the years. However, through EU regulation and British Governmental implementation, industries including the Breweries are actively encouraged to convert to metric, with the hint being they might as well do it now because they will be forced to do it anyway one day. That is the reality of the situation – full metrication will happen. It’s not a matter of if but when.

So, the breweries are in part to blame, but only so far as they are doing what is in their interests as directed by higher authorities. If I were you I would be directing my anger at our British Government and Parliament that have allowed these laws to be passed, and also the undemocratic, unaccountable EU leaders who have over decades created and implemented this legislation. As for letting them get away with it – we can do nothing to stop it (unless we were to leave the EU that is).

it's only real ale if it's BOTTLE CONDITIONED...this will be quoted on such bottled beer..this is KEG in a bottle so not for us real ale fans.

Keg in a bottle or not, it's still an order of magnitude better than the kids fizzy lager in a can that usually comes up on offer.

Asda have done the deal on Shepherd Neame 1698 bottle condtioned before.

I may be wrong but I think Adnams Broadside comes in a 550 or 568ml bottle. It certainly seems to fill my pint pot, unless my glass has been metricated too! Broadside is fantastic at 6.2% but I'll certainly be getting some Theakstons for £1. Cheers!

Bargain. I'll be stocking up tonight.

Was in Tesco's recently, most of the bottled ales there were only 330ml - what's that all about? Didn't buy any and went to Sinsbury's instead and picked up 10 of these, good tasting beer.

568ml is still a fluid metric figure, breweries cant hide behind metrication as to why there old 568ml bottles are now 500ml(0.88 of a pint). They are now making 330 and 355ml ales too:x

I've had some of this tonight. Its well hopped presentation is rather unsupported at 4.5%, so somewhat lightweight. More of a breakfast beer, but reasonable value at £1.

He bloomin presented Live & Kicking while having his own beer? Bloomin double standards if you ask me!

Just as bad as that Bacon IMO!
