I'm surprised anyone really buys these mass produced, tasteless beers …I'm surprised anyone really buys these mass produced, tasteless beers anymore now that there is such a huge amount of amazing, small batch craft beer available. These aren't really "real ale" as defined by Camras 1970 definition either as they are not bottle conditioned.Sorry, but a quid a bottle for this swill is too much, cold from me.


Haha! The overly pretentious craft beer revolution! Let's throw obscure ingredients in the mix and then mask them with masses of hops and give it a stupid name and sell them to the hipster crowd. Yup, that's how to do beer!

"small batch craft beer"
I've yet to find anything remotely matching that descriptor other than the extremely rare locally produced, locally consumed, never heard of rarities that most people will never have heard of.
Brewdog is one frequently included on here as "small batch craft beer", yet it's made on an industrial estate in a pretty big, and getting bigger, stainless steel, mains water fed factory that looks more like a refinery than a craft brewery.

If you like the taste and are happy to pay the inflated prices, fine, but don't call it small batch craft beer, because it isn't.

And why do you equate mass produced with tasteless?

Seen these at my local in Edinburgh yesterday going for £1.20 and £1.25.
Nothing for a 💷 coz someone thought it was a good idea to penalise the whole country for other peoples drinking habits.
Good price so 🔥 for me.

And Beer52 etc have tapped into the gullible market who are happy to pay over £9/litre for "collections" of obscure beers, bought unseen/untasted. Yet people moan about austerity. Joke.

I was happy to abuse their introductory offer - 8 beers and a bag of crisps for the price of postage (£2.95). For that price you can't go wrong! I had some obscure beers that didn't taste bad, but not great - just way too much hops, though that was handy as one of them had peaches in it! As long as you remember to cancel (I gave up doing it over the phone after 5 mins without ever speaking to someone and did it online) it's all good!

Pretentious twaddle! Choose the ones you like and enjoy real taste - even the worst of them are better than any lager. Pour without a cloud of yeast coming out (or wasting part of the contents). Consistency at a very reasonable price.

None of them is as good as real hand-pulled ale in good condition at the pub, of course.

Couldn’t agree more. Pathetic really. Quite difficult to get a normal lager in some parts of Manchester now. Don’t get me wrong I like to try new and weird beers sometimes but after a long hard week sometimes you just want a ‘normal’ 4-5% pint of lager

I cancelled by email and have been getting regular emails since with all sorts of offers - £5 off if I'll be a "taster". If they want me to be a "taster", they can send me samples.

I agree with the sentiment, but there's no excuse for p*ssy lager unless it's it's the only thing on tap apart from cider I've just come back from 8 months overseas and it was watery lager, lager, lager everywhere, so I'll be quite happy not to knock back another one for a while!
All our tastes vary and some of these are good value compared with much of the rip-off craft stuff. Highlights I'd suggest are :-
- Oakham Citra (500ml bottle) one of the original "citra" hoppy pale ales - a great beer for Summer.
- dark beer wise there's not much here but suggest Titanic Plum Porter
The £1 bottles are now £1.65? I are confused.
I like them and it's a good deal! Well done and for £1 if there's any left!
Perfect 4the England game tomorrow
This looks like the Father’s Day promotion they had a couple of weeks ago, that has now finished, the only beer on the photo which is £1 is the hobgoblin gold and old speckled hen.
Edited by: "no1goldenchild" 23rd Jun
Have they got any Stella?
Sorry but not really a deal, this is the same promo they have running all the time under different names - most beers around the £1.65 mark and on multi buy, odd few at £1 or thereabouts.

Cold from me
Spitfire is probably the worst beer I have ever tasted.
Nothing of interest in mine. Just the usual plain beers on the usual discounts.
Old Speckled Hen £1
A few days ago they had hundreds, the next day about 20.

The bannana and the chocolate ales are nice.

me too even the daughter got me a box
Get some Ossett Brewery down yer.

oh just noticed, they don’t have it on this offer.

In which case I’d suggest the Leeds (Leeds of course), Acorn (Barnsley) and Saltaire (Saltaire near Shipley, near Bradford).

Notice a running theme?

Interestingly I’ve been to Devil’s Backbone Brewery on the ‘Brewery Trail’ in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia (on the trail of the lonesome pine...). Good stuff if you like a Vienna Lager (like Brooklyn etc), but this one is brewed under license by a big brewer in U.K. and doesn’t taste quite as good as the proper stuff to me.

Has anybody actually called Brewdog a “small batch” craft brewery or are you making stuff up for the sake of your point? Brewdog isn’t small batch craft beer and hasn’t been for a good few years, it’s just craft beer, and the quality has gone downhill in line with its expansion.

There are loads of fantastic breweries in the UK that aren’t making beer on an industrial scale though. Have a look at ‘Cloudwater’ and ‘Track’ in Manchester, you’ll be able to find them online and in your local bottle shop, ‘Verdant’ in Cornwall too, they’re brewing world class IPAs in small batches. ‘The Kernel’ and ‘Brew By Numbers’ in London, very good non-mass-produced beer. ‘Lost & Grounded’ in Bristol brew the best British lager, ‘Keller Pils’ it’s fantastic.

Leave the beer aisle in the supermarket and have a trip to your local bottle shop or visit a Free House pub that isn’t tied to a giant brewing company and find a whole new world of stuff that matches ‘small batch craft beer’
I'm having trouble parsing the deal title. Does not compute.

Brewdog market themselves as just about everything except what they are, and that's an industrial size/style brewery. Craft means absolutely nothing. It's just a word used for marketing/image, as on its delivery trucks "Craft beer for the people". Which people? The gullible?

As for "small batch", I suppose Brewdog as a brewer can get away with that as they produce various other beers under licence in small quantities. Yeastie Boys Pot Kettle Black is one that I've sampled but wouldn't bother with again.

Craft beer has no meaning. I remember seeing Tiny Rebel comment that the total amount of beer brewed in the whole of Wales would still be classed as 'craft' if it was all from one brewery. Americans, different scale.
And considering Cloudwater can be £6 a tin, that's a massive difference, whereas these ales are similar in price to bog standard lager but with more variety and more going on. I love artisan ales, but if you have just 2 or 3 a day they can cost you £100 a week which is unrealistic to most people.
As expected nothing doing in my store (Witham) just a few bottles just over a pound (Ruddles best, Manns brown etc)

What I said was "Brewdog is one frequently included on here as "small batch craft beer" "

Did I say you mentioned Brewdog? No. I merely raised them as an example of a , so called, "craft" brewery, which is perfectly clear from what I wrote.
I then went on to comment further about them. All factual. I know the place well. No rant. I'll leave that to you.

On your other post, "What on earth has a failed Government Policy that has seen the erosion of our public services got to do with your anger at Beer52 prices? ", I would have thought it was perfectly clear.
While people are complaining about austerity, saying they're hard up/hard pressed financially, or whatever, it seems strange that they're still prepared to pay around £9/litre for blind selections of ,at best, questionable quality beer from Beer52 or any of the other similar outlets. Quite simple.

And, of course, you're wrong again when you refer to "a failed Government Policy". The current problems encapsulate more than one government, and a hell of a lot more than one failed policy, but as discussion of politics is not allowed on HUKD, I'll say no more.

You're very welcome to your views about BrewDog or Beer52, just not sure why you mentioned them both in reply to my thoughts, when I didn't mention either. Then insisted that BrewDog weren't a Craft brewery, even though I didn't say they were.
