Smithfield Tavern, cask and sandbar are also good places to try in Manchester. Sandbar is a bit further away from the others mentioned.

Same for me, had it before, it's cloudy and and crisp and very nice, and a lovely drop at £5 for 4 in sainsbury at the minute.
Yeah I’ve had my first one but have also decided to mix it up a bit as I’m now having a Gamma Ray and have also had a can of Hyde and Wilde IPA however I must say the Camden is the best of the three

Agreed. Fourpure Hemisphere session IPA is canny in the 8 cans for £9 if you get in Tesco. That Camden one is possibly my favourite from Sainsburys fairly limited selection.

Tesco have a few new ones in, £3 each but you'd pay more in a specialist beer shop

I've got a few to try, the milk stout and the West Coast IPA were ok, but won't buy again as the Vocation Love and Hate and the blueberry waffle stout set a decent standard and seem to be still available.
£3 for a 330ml can? See, I find that bonkers. Even the beer clubs work out at about £3 a can, but they source them from all over the world, then post them to me - and I found that hard to justify.

But at supermarket volumes, £3 a can is crackers to me.
Been enjoying this stuff lately...

I don't think they made a bad beer tbh. I had a can of their Grapefruit Halcyon earlier - absolutely lovely, you'd never know it was over 7%

The £3 cans are 440ml I think. Ridiculous value some of them, some of those beers would cost roughly the same for bottle shops to buy in.

440s is a fair bit better value then. Obvious for one-offs, its fine. But I find it hard to justify £9 a litre beers long term :lol:

I'm the same. I get them if they're on offer for £2.

The best value is the 8 for £9 offer at Tesco for stuff like Life or Death.

Morrisons have some nice strong ones on for 4 for 6 too.

Every now and then I drive through to the Tescos at Dragonville (Durham) just to buy about £100 worth of beer. Life or Death is about my favourite "every day beer" these days. Lovely stuff.

Summer wine brewery closed down their business and tap room (honley, between Huddersfield and Holmfirth) for good. Shame, a couple of their beers were great. The rest was generic cask. Their tap room was decent but basic and in the middle of nowhere. Still remember mad hatter closing. Some good craft beer businesses gone down the toilet in the last 3-4 years.

A lot say its shite on here, which to be fair for atmosphere it is but they haves some cracking beers on. Certainly worth a dodge in when you are thru there
I went to one next to travelodge in Leeds was expensive but only had time for one pint there's 9of us out drinking just fancied trying something different, haven't really tried much craft beer just usually drink standard lagers.
I'm in the USA at the moment and it's like craft beer heaven in the supermarkets here!
Where you at marra
