Tesco have added the following to the 5 for 10 offer. Wychwood scarecrow organic ale, Oxford gold organic beer, st peters organic ale, whitsable bay organic ale and stinger organic ale. I don't think any are Irish but I'm open to correction but still may be worth a try.

Wow - is goose island this cheap anywhere else? I love that stuff!

I'm by telco ballybrack, they don't have it there...

The Scarecrow Organic and Whitstable Bay are pretty poor tbh. St.Peter's is decent though and quite cheap at €2.

Tesco pushing up their prices. :(

It's now five for €11 on the mix of crafts and foreign beers.

The 33cl Porterhouse bottles have gone from €1.50 to €2.29.

Given the excise duty increas and the Vat on top of that 10% seems a round number!

Still makes for beer at 2.20 a bottle!!

Shame that we can make it for a wee bit less ( 50C a bottle ) but sure we have to keep a drinking eye on the big boys!

So the PH bottles are back to 1.50 with a "save 79cent" sign beside them.

Was in Tesco newcastlewest today, while there is still a reasonable selection of craft beers I was disappointed to see the Irish contingent consisted of 3 bottles of Belfast ale. On a more frugal note the Schneider Weiss was 48cents a bottle.

It comes and goes. Tonight in Clonmel they had all O'Haras, Porthouse Ref, Wrasslers, Hop Head and Oyster. However, I just don't trust what I get in there ICB'wise, it's as if they don't store them correctly. ICB's are always skunky I find in Tesco.
