The Big Lout Weekend !

The big event in Lout Appreciation approaches, folks. The bank holiday weekend. As any cooking lager enthusiast knows this is the time of year to stock up on the lout! It's bargains bargains bargains.

We’ve been here before, and we will be here again, but No1 resource is my supermarket. Also check out leaflets posted through your door and adverts in tabloid newspapers. Play the game, pick your favoured grog and get working out the cheapest deal. There is no easy answer, it depends on grog.

For the example we will work with Carling.

A quick rundown, Tesco have a 2 for £16 offer on various boxes. The Carling is a 15 box, making 53p a can. Other boxes include 18 packs of Carlsberg Export Bottles & 15 packs of Becks Bottles

Sainsbury’s have the glory of 3 boxes for £20. The Carling is a 15 box, making 44p a can. Other boxes include 15 packs of Carlsberg Export Bottles & 15 packs of Grolsch Bottles, & 15 packs of Foster’s cans.

Morrison’s have 3 for £18 offer. The Carling is a 12 box, making 50p a can. Other boxes include 15 packs of Carlsberg Export Bottles & 15 packs of Grolsch Bottles, & 15 packs of Stella Bottles.

Asda have a 2 for £15 offer. The Carling is a 15 box, making 50p a can. Other boxes include 15 packs of Carlsberg Export Bottles & 15 packs of Stella Bottles, & 15 packs of Foster’s cans.

Aldi have an fruity little offer on 18 packs of Carlsberg Export Bottles. £5.99 each

I can’t do all the sums for you, choose your poison and do the maths. But the weekend starts now cooking lager fans. Cheap Grog, stock up!

Just think Cookie it is only going to get cheaper when the world cup starts. At least if pubs have good sense to show the w.c. they can making a killing too.

10% staff discount means 3 15 packs of fosters for me today at sainsburys. Cheers!

The Tesco offer went to 3 for £20 at the weekend, ending on the 31st. Sainsbury's offer ends today. Well done Tom!

2 weeks to the world cup so we'll have to wait a fortnight for the next opportunity to acquire lots of lovely lout for buttons!
