300ml bottles are a rip off. A lot of those offers were originally for 330ml bottles but the supermarkets have cottoned on to the fact that they can sell 300ml bottles for the same price as 330ml bottles without shoppers realising it.

300ml bottles have always been sold by the supermarkets - its to prevent the publicans buying in bulk from their local Tesco and then reselling it at 500% markup.

300ml bottles are a rip off if you pay a rip off price. This is a Bargain Alert thread designed to help you avoid paying a rip off price.

From about 2009.

Sorry,but up until about 2009 most bottles of beer sold in Ireland in ol's & in pubs were sold in 330ml bottles.
