Found 30th May 2016
Just been in to my local Aldi, and they have what they're calling a 'beer festival' on! There were about 12 different types in mine, all 500ml bottles & all just £1.25.

Includes:
White Witch Blonde Ale
Mid Atlantic Pale Ale
Wadworth 6X Amber Ale
Wet Your Whistle Golden Ale .... just to name a couple! - Can see the full list on the Aldi website (not available to buy online, but at least you can get an idea of whats instore.

The majority of Asda's beers are 4 for £5 and have been for ages, and they generally have local breweries too, so this isn't anything special imho.

​True, can't beat Asda great price and variety although I'm voting hot as there maybe some new ales there and you don't have to spend £5 although I always do!

Yep, i usually get mine from Asda too (although now they've taken 'King Goblin' ale off the offer i'm not as impressed!). Just thought this was good if anyone just wanted 1 or 2 beers from a decent selection, save having to buy the 4. My Aldi is right by Tesco, but their best offer only seems to get down to 4 for £6
same with my local Morrisons, it's backward thinking as I'll get from asda and end up shopping there too, should all price match
Velo for £1.25... hot from me!
These beers are £1.25 all the time so this is not a deal! Thanks for letting people know but its not a deal
Strange place to have a beer festival.

They're different beers from the usual standard range though.
I got the Wadworth 6X Amber Ale which ive never seen in Aldi before. They were on a special rack too, not with the usual alcohol.
Nice post.... saw the leaflet..... Show interesting ones
I meant some interesting ones.... Hoppy USA ipa
Would be good in Scotland - we don't get bulk buy discounts on booze thanks to Fat Eck and his fishy friends.

The £1.25 bottles are available in Scotland - picked up some last week. Would have to say that the selection wasn't as good as it has been but a couple of really good local brews still in it.

Worth the heads up for those that weren't aware of this OP - heated.
Thanks, Doods, that's good news.
mid Atlantic Pale from Titanic brewery based in Burslem is worth £1.25 of anyones money
Just tried some Ahop-alyptic Now ale, from Aldi. Wasn't expecting much, the bottle label looked very cool and of course I was suckered in by their marketing. Have to admit I'll definitely go back for more...probably one of the nicest bottled ales I've had
The Rev James Rye beer has a money back if you don't like it neck collar - it's good but I've told Brains otherwise & sent it off
owt gluten free?
Sorry, had to vote cold as this isn't an especially good price. Sainsburys often have good beers and ales on offer for £1 (they're taste the difference IPA is excellent). and it's not too much different to offers and other supermarkets, which generally have a better selection.
For those with a Costco card, you can get 16 Badger Brewery Beers for £16.78 inc VAT, so just over £1 a bottle. Includes Tangle Foot, Champion and two others

Always seems good value when they do this offer
asda 4 cans Abbots ale £5.50 4 bottles £5.00???????.
The selection in the link point in St Helens wasn't much better than what they normally have. Very disappointing festival.
I think the Lidl Beer Cellar offers a better range of brews at £1.25 - £1.49

Their own 'craft' beer range is pretty dire though.

I'd disagree the Addled Addler and Gnarly Fox are pretty good.

They're okay I guess. Purple Panther Porter though is like a poor version of Hobgoblin, it's just crap and seems a bit pointless to buy too when they sell Hobgoblin for the same price.

fantastic! Was in there the other day and saw all the new ales ready to be stacked. Have to say I saw a few that don't pop up that often in the local supermarkets near me, alot of the black sheep variety. Gonna defo pop down!
I've been buying Badger Poacher's Choice for 72p a bottle from my local Tesco store for the last couple of weeks. I've only seen it in the one store though.
Bought some "Land of Liberty American Style IPA" from Rockingham Aldi on Sunday. £1.09 for 330ml. Lovely stuff - easily as good as much of the stuff my local craft ale sells at £3+ a bottle. Labelled "Sadlers" and "The Great British Brewing Company". Also "specially produced for Aldi Stores Ltd". Not on their website, hope it's nationwide as I'd like to get more of it.

Daft comment - Panther is a Porter, Hobgoblin a Dark Ale both good value @ £1.25

I know full well it's meant to be a porter, the point I was making is that it's not... (_;) As I made that comment yesterday I was thinking to myself that someone is going to take it the wrong way. Lo and behold. ^

Incidentally Fuller's London Porter is one of my favourite beers, that's a proper porter not this Lidl crap

edit: I didn't realise it's made by Jennings (Marston's), that's a shame. They make some good beers, I'm a big fan of Sneck LIfter but man that Purple Panther is poor. People on Ratebeer seem to agree..

I suspect Marstons are more qualified than you to differentiate between Panther and Hobgoblin given that they brew both

Yes I know that Marston's bought Wychwood, it might actually explain the similarity and yes the Panther is brewed by Jennings, another brewey that was bought by Marston's in recent years. This doesn't necessarily mean the breweries suddenly lose their identity and all the beers start to taste the same. Sadly it did to an extent when they bought Ringwood, for example the strength of Old Thumper was reduced and their beers became a but samey. I mentioned Sneck Lifter earlier and as far as I remember it hasn't changed much since Marston's bought Jennings. Don't you think that someone who knew that would know that Marston's bought Wychwood?

Ir's funny because you've kind of accused me of snobbery because I don't like a beer and yet come across as a snob yourself.

Oh and by the way, I hate to be a pedant (you don't) but it's Marston's not Marstons.
