​cans are nearly always cheaper than bottles so your point is kinda useless....

in the same sort of way that a pint at a pub is more expensive than a pint in a shop. its the same stuff, right?

No you're paying to be in an establishment with staff, music, ability to hold more people than your living room etc etc So again your analogy is kinda useless....

​then why is a bottle at a pub more expensive than draught at a pub?

same stuff?

packaging makes a difference
I was buying 15 bottles @ Sainsbury's for £9 not so long ago so this seems a good deal to me. Heat Added
Ps. It just don't taste the same out of cans IMO

No same for me , I never liked bottles when I was younger, just jumping on the band wagon but now I usually buy bottles as it does taste different I suppose in the same way that a pint tastes more refreshing to me than a can, again personal preference.

Next time you're in one of these fine establishments have a chat with the landlord. He will tell you: he has no central warehouse to store and order several million litres of one beer a year or three in advance like a supermarket (oddly enough you get a fair old discount). Pubs are usually pushed into X amount of barrelage per month so they would sooner sell you that . They have to transport bottles it's not very efficient. They have to store all of the empty bottles and get rid of. They take up loads of fridge space. Pay the staff to deal with the bottles (empty and full) . If bottles were cheaper than draught I'm sure then general masses would be drinking many more bottles than pints. And in some cases it's not actually the same stuff on draught as it is in a bottle/can draught is usually better as it's normally fresher and is delivered at the correct temperature, so unless your fridge is calibrated ..

You're absolutely right packaging makes a difference but it's still Kronenbourg inside whether it's in a bottle can or paper cup. When you're buying garden party level larger I find it better to buy on price per litre. Stuff like Alhambra and other special lagers you don't get much choice about packaging. I don't hear many people shouting about the best can/bottle of Kronenbourg they've ever had.

You, sir, have earned an invite to the most discerning Real Ale Tweets* - Viz Facebook group for people who appreciate the finer aspects of beer. I do hope you join as your debating on here will be well appreciated, particularly the phrase "Garden Party Lager" which I will use myself from now on. Well played.

Depends where it's brewed, IMHO.

Kronie brewed under license in the UK is rubbish stuff, but the French stuff isn't bad. Similarly with Stella from Belgium, San Miguel from Spain etc etc.

Why, it's almost as though they know we'll drink any old rubbish in the country as long as it gets you drunk, so don't bother making it of the best quality!

Not generally a lager man most of the time, but when I have it, my preference is still Heineken which I think is only brewed in Holland. Oh, the Polish stuff is very nice as well. Except for Lech.
I have a mate who only drinks from bottles at home not cans. Probably due to the fact he drinks from them and I agree drinking from a bottle feels better than drinking from a can, but I've given him a little secret too, use a glass and you will not notice any difference from the fridge if it's poured into a glass first before drinking.

But amazed myself how some naively think that what goes into a more expensive bottle must be better quality than that what goes into a cheaper can.
we get the "export" version of the real stuff - in the same way as we get the French wine the French don't want to drink nor the german "wine" that the German's wouldn't even use for cooking.
If you drink your beer from a bottle, then you can't smell it and most of your sense of taste actually comes from your sense of smell. Therefore, you can't taste beer properly if you drink it from a bottle.

Probably preferable for the UK-brewed 'European' lagers.

I'd hate to be your guest then if you skint on around £2 difference just to serve cans (Asda being £1 dearer).

As it happens, I'm having a garden party tomorrow and I chose to travel 10 min more and get this deal. Different feeling when you drink from a bottle and looks better in an ice bucket than a bunch of cans dumped in there.
Does anyone know if the beer they're selling is produced in France or the UK?

​this is the point i was trying to make, obviously badly.

i much prefer beer out of bottles so the small price premium for bottles is worth it IMO, especially when it's nice weather and i can just grab a few, but each to their own.

Sorry, thought I'd posted on HUKD where they do money saving and all that jazzy stuff and not Good housekeeping "how to make your supermarket lager look spectacular this summer"

I'll point out again.. that the price per litre is cheaper at Asda (it's not more expensive) I have nowhere said that cans are more jazzy than bottles or vise versa.

I'm sure that as your guests are announced by the butler into the garden, all who set eyes upon the meticulously arranged formation of finest supermarket bottled lager, bathed in droplets of ice cold water and shone on by only the most perfect sunlight, shall be in awe!. Ladies will no doubt swoon at hearing your heroic journey of 10 minutes to reach the far off lands of Lidl. No expense spared for the many who will enjoy your tales of danger and anticipation on the way to the supermarket. I salute you on being a shining example of garden party glory!

Ps
I don't dump my cans in the ice bucket or it makes them go all frothy when you open them

When attending your garden party are working class people allowed or not? If so do you employ a beer apartheid system whereby the lower class attendees are segregated to maybe the patio area that hasn't been weeded regularly? Just a suggestion if you haven't thought of it, I find the oil from their boots chafes my daffodils otherwise.

Not the stuff I bought from Asda the other week (bottles). Says that is brewed in Holland. The draught stuff on sale in pubs is probably brewed over here though.
