Make sure you don’t miss these bargains

Aldi is selling off beer that was destined for pubs at discount prices, after buying it up to stop it going to waste.

The supermarket has stopped around 25,000 gallons of beer from being wasted, after lockdown means pubs must remain close.

Aldi purchased the beer directly from breweries, meaning they can sell it on at bargain prices, with some beers going for as little as 99p.

The beer is part of an Aldi Specialbuys offer which starts today, Thursday January 28th, and will end when all the stock is sold.

You’ll be able to grab 500ml of Spitfire Gold for just 99p – that’s 25p cheaper than at Asda and 75p cheaper than Morrisons – while you can also get a range of beers for the bargain price of £1.49, including Business as Usual from Derby Brewery and Snake Oil from West Berkshire Brewery.

If that doesn’t do it for you, you can also get a great deal on Tangle Foot and Warsteiner, with a four-pack of Tangle Foot going for £3.99 and a 12-pack of Warsteiner setting you back just £8.99.

The offer is available in-store only, so you won’t be able to grab any cheap beer online.

Julie Ashfield, the managing director of buying at Aldi UK, said: “Lots of our favourite local breweries have been hugely affected by the pandemic.
