Theakstons Old Peculier £1 for 500ml bottle at Tesco

30
Found 24th Jun 2011
Reduced from £1.97 to just £1 a bottle. A real ale drinkers treat!
The power of Old Peculier should never be under-estimated! A dark, strong beer Old Peculier is justifiably famous for its rich and complete character, its sheer strength (5.6%) – and for being a beer with a long history.

Think you mean SPITFIRE..X)
Hot deal , along with Wainwrights and Speckled hen this is my face tipple...cheers!
Lovely Beer .... Reminds Me Of My Days Spent In CPU Harrogate !!!
Quite literally ..... "Cheers" guys!
This beer is a lilttle cracker and at a quid a bottle you just can't go wrong .... whether you are stocking up for winter (I challenge you to keep it stored away for that long!), or after a Friday night tipple, I suggest you fill your boots. But please wait until after 5pm today because I can't get to Tesco to fill mine until then!!
I do enjoy my ales, but this does very little for me, good price though, heat added!
Great price but tastes poor compared to the draught OP

Of course, they all do - been pasteurised - but if you don't have a real bar in your garage........

Really? Out of the thousands of beers in the world? Try a BrewDog Punk IPA, or anything from Blue Monkey... or anything from Fyne ales :-D
Nice find, have some heat.
Reminds me of the Old Dungeon Ghyll in Langdale with Hudds Poly OPS
Woooah great deal! Give your tastebuds a treat and have a beer with flavour, lager boys!
These bottled real ales taste disgusting compared to the keg equivalents! So don't go by the name.
Rushed across the road to my local metro to be confonted by empty shelves.
Good luck to all you other beer hunters !

Might get a couple of bottles on my way home to supplement my case of Stella. It is possible to like both!

Firstly, they aren't real ales. As posted by Besford, they are filtered & pasteurised. In fact just like keg beer. There are a few notable exceptions which are real ales, having yeast in the bottle e.g. Sheperd Neame's 1698

I think the term you were looking for is "cask ale" which will almost always be a real ale i.e. still undergoing a secondary fermentation with living yeast in the cask. This type of ale matures as it ages, especially the higher gravity beers like Old Peculiar.

For a bottled ale, Theakston's OP is very drinkable in my view. I'd certainly stock up with a few bottles at this price.

Have tried the Punk IPA, but i prefer my ales Ruby Red, most of the pale one's have too much of a citrus lemony note for me, although Sharps Doom Bar is a belter. I recommend the ringwoods too like old thumper

All gone at ingleby barwick they also had newc brown for £1 even though its pap

Thanks for your explanation, but I still think they have a disgusting taste compared to the real ale equivalents.
Old_Perculier! The Brave Knight!
lovely drink and hot deal
memories of hangovers with this beer

prefer lighter real ales these days but good price

my local was empty at 5pm yesterday but I popped in 8am this morning on the way out and they'd restocked. Got 10 Old Pecs, 12 Newcastle Browns and a couple of Gaymers, all a quid a pop.

This is a winter beer



Perfect for the summer we're having then!
no theakstons OP - but there were large bottles of newcastle brown for £1 in tesco, old kent road this morning!
Had a word with the staff in Tesco, they went out the back and got me three packs of 8 bottles, this is my fav bottled ale
i'm not sure that my local branch stocks OP - i don't think i've ever seen it on the shelves.

i could travel to a larger store at surrey quays - but without a car it becomes problematic hauling large quantities home on the bus.

thanks for the tip, anyway.
