Important. This deal is not a guarantee there will be any stock in the store, so please don’t make a trip you wouldn’t have made otherwise just for this item, especially as it is a ‘luxury grocery’ rather than something essential - we should all limit our time out of our houses to help slow the spread. Please shop responsibly.


Meantime Brewing London Lager reduced half price to 75p a bottle in-store at Aldi.

Looks like they are refreshing their range of individual canned/bottled beers and clearing some out.

This did have quite a short BBE date in July 2020.

Which store please?
ABV4.5% vol
Used to be a decent brewer not sure how they are under Asahi
Reportedly some Meantime products are now brewed in Holland, as is Tyskie "Polish" lager (also owned by Asahi).

It'll be old stock, which also means it'll be nicer as it was brewed before being taken over by a big company and ruined like so many other beer companies 🥴

Yep indeed .. Heineken another company that has ruined many an ale by standardising production to maximise profits .
Once decent brewers sell out, give them a miss, as quality and taste suffers .

Asahi have bought out Fullers too. I can't help wondering how long they will maintain two separate London breweries.

Yes you posted it before. It's a 5 year old story, I'm was just posting what the bottles say here in 2020.

At the end of the day it's beer for 75p a bottle, it's a decent enough drink and a lot better than most lagers, especially in that price range.

Agreed, I also wonder how long they'll keep Darkstar in Sussex brewing.

They did five years ago too. The story made it clear that it wasn't wholly accurate then and as far as l can tell still isn't.
