For the past...I don't even know how long I've been going for tall cans of Genny black. 8%, 24oz. and they run about $1.29 at the grocery store.
I would incorporate that into my diet if it were available out here.
Oh God, my grandmother would kill me.

You`re very strict with your beer and bourbon menu, low on carbs, high on alcs. You`ll live forever

I've drank just about every type of Gennie there is but I have never heard of Gennie Black.

beer in the UK general increases in price along with abv....in terms of a bang for your buck product I think 5% is around the sweet spot. any higher and the tax skyrockets and the beer gets super expensive! any lower and it's gonna be piss water. I'll stick with a nice case of 5% Stella, £12 for 18 440ml cans is ok by me...shame it's been reduced to 4.8% now tough the bastards.

I haven't been drinking too much beer in lockdown. I tend to prefer a warm pint of amber ale.

Though currently there is a cheeky little offer of two pizzas and four San Miguels for £5 at your local Co-op supermarket.

Me and Miguel have become pretty good friends

aint bad at all that deal is it!! the pizzas aren't gonna set your world on fire but some ok drunk much for that price. Dunno if you have seen recently, san mig have started selling the little stubby cans in a few supermarkets...anyway they are the imported ones from Spain so the beer is 5.4% like it is over there rather than 4.8% like we get it. WIN FUCKIN WIN. hah

Wow very cool, why don`t our grocery stores combine drink with food for specials? That`s brilliant

I remember once going into the supermarket planning on a case of stella....the much more overpriced modelo had a free large pack of dortitos on offer with it though....

I was drinking modelo and eating doritos within the hour......what can I say? I'm a fucking sucker for an offer sign.

I do the same when liquor companies do shit like put their basic bitch product in a special edition bottle....I'm paying over the odds.

Honestly I'm a fucking marketing companies dream.
