The best supermarket

The world cup is over, and with it many of the best bargains. We will have to wait for the next bank holiday for the next round of stunning offers of cheap lout. Please take part in the poll on the left, and let me know where you stocked up on cheap lout. All the beardies like to give awards to pubs and what not. Cooking Lager appreciation is all about the joy of cheap supermarket grog, so I reckon on sending an award to the supermarket that wins. Whether they want one or not is another matter

But how can you be sure people won't be voting for the "best supermarket for weird pongy ale"?

You can vote how you like Mudge. How can you be sure of the criteria anyone votes by? Are you sure people vote for your pong club best pub awards on the basis of the best beer?

I'm knocking up a certificate in Word which I will send to the head office of the winner. The winning certificate says the award is for keeping the lout cheap, helping people get pissed for buttons and sticking 2 fingers up at the anti cheap grog campaigners.

May I suggest Trader Joe's on this side of the Atlantic. Currently selling both Red Orval and Simpler Times for $2.99 a six pack of cans. That's less than 2 quid for a six pack!!! Simpler Times is also 6.2% abv!!! When considering your next holiday, perhaps you should consider Sunny, Southern California???

Cheers for Trader Joe's (they do have many locations all across the USA). Don't forget the cheap Charles Shaw Chardonnay ($2.99 for 750 ml) to please the lady squeeze. That's his and hers grog all for less than a sixer of pricey krapht beer.

I feel like one of Mudge's beloved smokers: disenfranchised and unwanted. Where is the option for "None of the above"?

When I see posts like this, I feel I need to leave Norway again. Nearly 3 GBP for a half litre of decent beer at the local supermarket, while the cheapest ones sell at 2 GBP.

We did have Lidl over here for a while, but they folded all their supermarkets two years ago. They did try selling cheap beer, and paying 1.50 GBP for a half litre can was usual then. Therefore Lidl gets my vote here.
