Support Local - 3 Local Beers/Ciders for £5 at Co-op

Posted 23rd MayAvailable: NationalEdited by:"Big.Save!!"

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

All mid-counties co-operatives are running an offer for this bank holiday weekend which is 3 local beers/ciders for £5. I purchased some great local beers which are usually £3 each and even similar costs should you buy direct from the brewery and some breweries have exclusive ones for the co-operative. What a great time to support your local breweries during these difficult times.

I’m not sure what the problem is. If the coop are stocking beer/ale from breweries local to the specific store you are supporting local breweries. They might not be getting the same profit margins on those sales but there’s an opportunity for customers to try their beer/ale and potentially become a convert from lager/or other brands. Those local buyers may then purchase directly from the local brewery or the local craft beer supplier in future. It’s only this weekend anyway. Everyone’s a winner!

All the beers are local and within a 30 mile radius, which is great compared to any other supermarket. The co-op buys this in at the same trade price as independents as every store has a different range, hence why it's supporting local breweries.
I'm a pub owner and know the owners of local breweries. Buying local to me is supporting local business - so check to see what pubs are doing take-outs in your area and check to see what local breweries are doing too - most of my loacl ones are doing home deliveries. No doubt CoOp pay rock bottom prices to the breweries.

Look at brew2you.co.uk (set up by CAMRA) where you can see what pubs/breweries local to you are doing - and you can order their beer on that page.

I'm selling take outs and doing home deliveries and without doing this, my pub would no doubt close for good.

No I just wondered if you read about it online.
No I saw it in-store and purchased, it's mix and match across their whole local ales/cider range.

Supporting local means supporting bottles shops not a co-op. @bottlesandbooks

So how come you say above it is from breweries within 30 mile range if it includes the whole coop range?

I agree its a good offer and I voted accordingly but let's not pretend shopping at the coop is supporting local

Good deal. Will have to see if it's on in my local, as it's usually 2 for £4 (or £2.20 each).

We haven't got a "local bottle shop" around here. Fortunately, Co-op and Morrisons stock a reasonable amount of local beer.

I'd love to get ale from brew2you or any other means, but not one single brewery or pub on there in Cardiff, the capital of Wales? Our local brewery 2 mins from the house is actually charging pub prices i.e. £3.75 a pint, for takeout through their website. Tell me how that's warranted?

Understand your variable costs are now minimal (staffing, utilities, insurance, security, etc), sell at a much lower cost to compete with this (and actually they almost certainly buy at the same price), increase your volume, and we're all winners!

I think he means that each co-op is selling beers/ ciders in the offer from breweries within 30 miles. So if you went into one in Birmingham it would have different offers to Manchester or Newcastle

Beer snobs......don't mess with a hipster and their craft.

1 BH weekend, a perfect opportunity to sample local and become a hipster just off to coop. Agree that if local pubs did takeaways at a decent price during these times they would be getting a lot more business. Buy direct from the brewery and pay £2.60 a bottle or buy the same bottle from coop at a pound less. Hmmm, coop wins every time.

Completely agree. Why can’t other people see this? So much negativity and “yeah but, no but” that only does even more damage to the local industry.

Think a lot of local micro breweries/ craft pubs will go to the wall once the furlough is reduced and the new social distancing regulations kill any atmosphere in the pub itself.
Buy it while you can .

And googled to find the legit site and unless I want a 30 mile round trip for cider nothing in there after all that
