Was in Lidl yesterday and they had a limited stock of Carling.

24x500ml 4% €20

Also in Dunnes I picked up 5 x 660ml bottles of Orchard Thieves for €10. I see it is also the same offer in Tesco.

Dunnes are paying 23% vat on those slabs before banging them out for 20 euro.
I used to be a publican and asked the owner of a Supervalu how he sold so cheap. I said I assume it is a loss leader to get people in. He said he doesn't sell anything for a loss. There is a deal done so they get a rebate at the end of the month / quarter to cover the loss and they make a couple of percent margin I believe

It is in tesco 24 for 24 and as usual very limited stock. I have never seen cases of it, you have to get 6 4packs and there is usually only 1 lot of 24 on display, i.e. under 48cans on the shelf

They also have similar looking 4 packs but they are not in the offer and are a fiver.

Very little booze bargains in the supermarkets at the moment as it's not like they have to encourage people to come in buying groceries. Guinness slab in Dunnes today @ €32. Feels like an eternity since you could buy 2 slabs for €35 back in December.

Macardles stock running low in Cork yet piles of Smithwicks.
I hope people weren’t reading this thread last week.

I walked past a pub yesterday afternoon and they were offloading about 30 cases of Sol on to a pallet to be placed in the back of a truck. Got me thinking with sell by dates and stock potentially sitting around idle for months that to get cashflow going the publicans would prefer to offload them while the pubs here are all closed there is no licenced premises market for them.

Will the unsold beer now be put on the open market at a reduced price?

I saw somewhere that Diageo and Heineken were taking back all stock and crediting accounts.

Wouldn't be surprised if some of the stock ends up in off licences as job lots.

Something to watch out for.

They won't be pouring pallets of beer down the drain anyway, that's for sure.

To the best of my knowledge, they can in fact do this and get remission of the duty previously paid, which would account for the vast majority of the value involved.

That is correct and it will happen with the draught kegs.
