Yes you are getting 2.6 litres for €10 so it's the same as paying a shade under €2 per 500ml can, however the difference between the 5% and 4.3% is night and day, it's delish.


Plus, if you are only having the one

I got 8 of those white cans of Guinness for €8 this morning.
It's a special edition to commemorate the 120th anniversary of the birth of John Gilroy who designed the classic Guinness ads of the 30's/40's.

I'll drink to his memory tonight.

It is likely from the same vat and just diluted down more, it is all brewed & canned/bottled in holland. I think the 5% is meant to be brewed higher too and diluted down. Guinness is too.

The nutritional info might give it away, if the 5% declare it, I noticed the 4.3% cans do now declare it.

It is 2.6L, but if it was diluted to 4.3% it is 3023ml, so at 10euro works out 1.65 per 500ml 4.3% can. Or 1.09 per 330ml bottle of 4.3%

This debate reminds me of the following post from Reddit regarding Lidl cider vs beer (Galahad) in terms of value:

Lidl Cider, 5.3%, €3.79 for 2L. It can't be beaten.
3.79/(5.3*2) = 36c per unit of alcohol to 2 SF
Whereas your Galahad is 14.79/(20*2) = 37c per unit of alcohol to 2 SF.
Now, this is obviously is quite close and ABV won't be constant from batch to batch, so we might expect that some cans of Galahad offer a better alcohol:cost ratio than some bottles of Lidl Cider. HOWEVER, as the number of cans and bottles approach infinity, the probability of the Lidl Cider drinker getting better value than the Galahad drinker approaches 1.


And as everyone here knows, the number of cans and bottles should always approach infinity

Deal-wise, didn't see it mentioned here but the Sunday World had a Dunnes €10 off €50 spend voucher a few weeks ago - which I presume is still usable in Tesco as well. So that puts an end to "newspaper vouchers are a thing of the past", should keep an eye out for more over the next while.

Anyone recommend a good place to buy a nice bottle of gin? If there's deals on some nice Irish-made brands then even better.

O'Briens have Drumshanbo Gunpowder gin @ 44 a bottle?
Local offies- often have gin events (such as Kenny's Offlicense in Lucan Village- who showcase a different Irish gin on a regular basis).
