Current beer hauls are not too bad at the favourite discounters, and even prices are getting silly. Let us look at what’s on offer these days.
First off … Aldi. Nice surprise, they stock (temporarily) Frühlings Festbier in nice reusable bottles – as our recent visit to the real Frühlingsfest in Bad Cannstatt was a complete wash-out, this offering from Schwabenbräu was very welcome. Not cheap at (I think) € 2.49, but still.
Talking about prices … next to the German brew are half litre cans of “Breysers”, billed as an American-style pils, and Karlskrone, despite the name a lager from France. Haven’t tasted them yet, but at € 0.99 each I think it might be a good mixer. And even if the Murican one may taste like goats’ piss … that’s the authentic Murican beer taste anyway, isn’t it?
On to the competition …
Our friends at Lidl surprised with a “Balkan Week” (I think for the first time ever here), and added some traditional beers into the mix. Half-litre cans of Ožujsko from Croatia, plus bottles of Kamenítza from Bulgaria and Timișoreana from Romania. All quality brands, so let teh fun begin!
