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.
Heineken 20x330ml bottles €18
They also still have Guinness 8 for €8
18 x Orchard Thieves for €20 in Tesco Longwalk Dundalk (bad photo,kids were with me)

Any good whiskey deals out there? The stocks at home are running low ðŸ˜”
Few whiskeys here:
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.
