    Voted hot my favourite beer. Got a couple at x-mas and it was like Nectar but they usually go down hill quickly. Do you know what the use by date is ?
    I think it is unlikely these will be on offer too far south in the U.K. but I will keep checking.
    Seen in Macclesfield
    had one of these over
    xmas. had to pour down drain as didn’t keep well. i love this beer, but the condition of it was horiffic. got a refund. Personally will never risk one of these
    mini kegs. would just get bottles
    Jaipur is up there with my favourite ales. However....
    Minikegs are a HUGE false economy.
    Fantastic beer. This isn't a keg, it is a cask - which means that once opened air gets in and it will therefore last 3 days absolute max (kept in cool, dark place). It's @ 8.5 pints. Best kept for party or gathering when you know it will get finished.

    Where can you buy Jaipur for under £3/litre?

    Don't worry, it'll get finished
    Also, scorching hot deal - standard price is £25 for a 5l mini keg of the proper live stuff

    Not sure if the use by date. I’ve not actually seen them in a store, just got one being delivered tomorrow.

    If I knew it was a long date I’d probably get a couple.

    I’d normally agree, but at this price it’s brilliant value provided it gets drunk in a reasonable time scale.
    This product is unavailable ; (
    Tremendous. No danger of it lasting 3 days in this house.
    All a terrible £/litre but great novelty factor and great for parties/BBQ etc
    BTW available at Tesco Cradley - all of them. Inc Desperdaos, Both Strongbow and others

    Excellent value for this particular beer....or are you comparing it to something else
    Lots of these kegs appearing from all different brands now.

    All have one thing in common.

    Rip off for the actual liquid you get for the money.

    Yes they look good, but at £3 a litre not good value at all

    OK.
    I stand corrected.
    £1.80 for 330ml is the normal price
    For this beer it appears good value as long as you get to drink it before it goes flat.

    Sheffield Special Brew, Brilliant drink!
    Used to stay near a Thornbridge pub in Sheffield - wide range of excellent beers. I usually prefer the weaker ones though (try Wild Swan; amazing for a 3.5% beer) - you can sink a couple more pints before you fall over!

    A concern with these casks is that even if you let them settle properly (min 24 hours) you're not likely to get all 5 litres as good, clear ale as there will always be some sludge in the bottom. If you're near one of the pubs just take along a container (or they may have some of the ones you can buy). As long as you fill them with minimum air left inside they'll last several days in good condition - if you can wait that long!

    Wish I was near a Thornbridge pub went to one in Sheffield a few times while on holiday last year. Surprisingly found it in a Spoons also whilst away (again) last year in Cheltenham also saw Bobby George not far away if any darts fans are here ? Doubt it will go that far south again though but hopefully someone will prove me wrong !

    I love Wild Swan! Great beer!
    Not just speaking as a Sheffield Wednesday fan, but if you get to try their “The Wednesday” I also highly recommend
    Jaipur is my favourite beer so will try and hunt some down.

    On a side note I did a brewery tour of Thornbridge a couple of weeks ago, in my mind they are probably the finest brewery around brewing such a wide variety of quality ales.
    I came across this in my local Tesco today. Usually these aren't great value at £15, especially the new Strongbow one! However I was shocked to see Jaipur and immediately grabbed the last two left. Best before date is July 2018, but these two are unlikely to see much past the weekend 😁
    In the top 3 ofworse hangovers ever
    This beer is actually the best pale ale I've had. Don't know what it's like from mini keg. I love jaipur

    They are, I definitely agree, work out very expensive.

    But a 500ml bottle of beer is usually between £1.25 and £1.50. Thornbridge is one of the beers that currently only does beer in 330ml bottlea and charges a lot more than the beer would cost in a 500ml bottle!

    I have never worked out why this is, but hopefully soon, as Thornbridge becomes more well known and popular, it will be able to start selling 500ml bottles of Jaipur for £1.25.

    Until then, these mini kegs actually work out cheaper than the bottles (which is bizarre I know, but it is due to the really high price they sell the bottles at)

    Jaipur will be found all over the country. It's Thormbridge's most popular brew, even shipping abroad (I'm sure the guy told me China, or somewhere in Asia). The cask stuff tastes much better than the key stuff though

    Thornbridge used to sell all there beer in 500ml bottles until early 2017. I personally feel that they didn’t reduce the price of the beer accordingly, particularly for the lower strength stuff.

    At the time the Brewery said it was to match their competitors in the craft beer market and also because Brass dns restaurants were more likely to stock them in their fridges.

    It was disappointing to me, but as it stands it means this is the cheapest way to Jaipur I’ve seen for a long while.

    I hadn't heard of them until 2017, I thought they were a new brand.

    I assumed the reason the bottles were 330ml and so expensive is because not many people know about them yet, and so they and several other newish brands sell in smaller bottles so people are encouraged to buy them. I assumed that once a brand gets established properly and has decent sales, it can then start selling in 500ml bottles and at a cheaper price due to the amount of sales they are making.

    Hopefully they will revert back to 500ml once they take off. These kegs seem to suggest they are on their way to that stage

    Totally agree.

    I complained to Thornbridge as i had a White Swan keg and a Jaipur one and both were horrifically cloudy and undrinkable despite being stood in the garage for a week.

    They sent me a box of bottled Jaipur as a replacement

    They have good customer serried, but you'll have to take it back to Tesco's.

    Thanks for that I’m glad it was available in Cheltenham & I am mad (obsessed ?) enough to find out for myself again but I was more hoping others would confirm where in the country they were getting this Tesco’s deal but also if Jaipur is available on draught south of Brum ???
