Brewdog 5am Saint £1.25 @ Morrisons

28
Found 23rd Jan 2014
Not sure if it's national but my local Morrisons have it for £1.25.

5am Saint is The Holy Grail of red ales.

We live in a world of disposable deities.
Someone, somehow has managed to press that big, flashing moronic override button and we are hard wired straight into the pockets of false idols trying to make a quick buck.

Sadly, for a lot of people the same mentality applies to beer.

But who is to know what is worth worshiping when monolithic advertising budgets have you sucked down the rabbit hole in the blink of an eye?

At BrewDog we are on a mission to open as many peoples eyes as possible. Cast away any aspersions and let the crook of BrewDog be your guide in a whirlwind of conformity and mediocrity.

Once this ruby liquid forms a foamy halo around your glass, you will never want to look back.

Love real ale! But not really a fan of this attention seeking brewer and their extremely bland ales.

Each to their own though!

not the usual close-to-a-pint 500ml bottles for real ale....you might want to state the size

Big fan of Brewdog, the Punk and Dead Pony Club are outstanding, this comes in just behind them two. I'll check Morrisons out next time I'm in. Which is your local?

Bland? What do you usually drink that is more flavoursome?

Fyne Ales, Eden, St Andrews, Loch Ness, Wylam, Black Isle, Stewarts, Alechemy, William Bros, Thwaites, Fallen, Bristol Beer Factory etc etc!

Dumfries

Not wishing to enter a debate about fine ales as I'm sure we all have our favourites....but...this is quality beer for a good reduction over the normal price. I for one will be stocking up when I visit, which will be a special trip.
Heat added.

its ok, price is abour right.
not cold but not hot, average.

I wouldn't class this as a real ale, it's more of a craft beer. I know there is a raging debate in the beer world re whether real ale and craft beers are actually one in the same, but for me a real ale is not a fizzy keg beer but a nice flat cask beer. This is a fizzy keg beer, thus to compare this to some of the ales you listed is a bit like comparing a lager to a stout, they are both good in their own ways but very different.

This is a decent craft beer at a good price so hot (I do prefer Innes and Gunn in this category though).

Dumfries ey. Bit of a trek for me, i'll take my chances on Teesside asap.

There were 8 on the shelf in Dumfries and I bought 6. It wasn't marked up as a promo, just a normal price sticker, and Punk IPA was the normal £1.99.

I did notice last week that Tesco now stock Libertine and Jack Hammer at £2.20.

plus batemans of course

Their obnoxious marketing puts me off a bit, but this is a decent enough beer at a good price. So it's hot!

I love the punk ipa. One of the better "big" I pas this side of the pond.

Like the ale, dislike the pretentious marketing. It's beer, it wont save the world

And Thornbridge Jaipur is a beautiful beer!

Totally agree with your definitions there. I wouldn't consider anything Brewdog do to be an ale either.

Still enjoy a pint of it though. This price definitely beats the ~£4.50 it costs in Manchester Brewdog bar.

love this site even just for learning / finding new things.. what's red ale then? (what makes it red)..

Can't say i'm a massive fan of real ale but probably had rubbish before.. must say i'm intrigued to give this a go..

Oh and for red there's Orkney red Mcgregor

Inness & Gunn! God lord no!

Cracking beer at a great price. One of my staple beers when I go to the bars and order online. Not sure if this will be Scotland, will need to have a look.

Bargain of a price, direct from the brewer this beer is usually £1.69. Even with 20% shareholders discount this deal is still better, and don't have to pay for delivery.

So, it's **** but a small discount might make it OK!
And what does it matter how it's categorised, surely it's how it tastes and how much it costs that matters...
