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.
“As part of our commitment to supporting British suppliers, we’ve found a way to stock great quality and award-winning beers.”

- Spitfire Gold (500ml): Shepherd Neame – 99p

Sainsbury’s is doing giant ‘pigs in beach towels’ for summer barbecue season
Who else is excited for these?
We all know that pigs in blankets are the best part of Christmas dinner, but for some reason they don’t seem to get much of a look in for the rest of the year.
Well, not any more, as Sainsbury’s is launching some new giant ‘pigs in beach towels’ just in time for the summer barbecue season.
Made of jumbo British pork sausages wrapped in chestnut smoked streaky bacon, the pork treat is ideal for summer.
It’s launching with the rest of Sainsbury’s Summer Edition, which dropped both in stores and online from April 28th.
The supermarket sold over 20 million individual pigs in blankets at Christmas, meaning it’s a no-brainer to bring out a summer version of the festive treat.
The new pigs in beach blankets will set you back £4.50 for a pack.
The Summer Edition also features some brand new feta and spinach parcels for £2, falafel balls which will set you back £2, as well as a sweet potato falafel option (£2.50).
You can also grab harissa lamb and chicken koftas (£2.50), Raw Chilli & Garlic Prawn Skewers (£4) and Tandoori Vegan Kebabs (£2.50).
There’s also Halloumi & Vegetable Kebabs with Sweet Chilli Glaze (£3.75), as well as Mexican Corn Fritters (£2.50).
Head over to the website here to check out the full range.
Aldi is launching a new rattan tiki garden bar for £100 cheaper than Asda
It’s launching this Sunday online
Aldi is launching a brand new rattan tiki-style garden bar later this week as part of its Specialbuys range.
The tiki-style bar will be just under £200 when it launches on Sunday, making it £100 cheaper than a similar one that Asda sells.
You’ll be able to buy the bar online from Sunday May 9th for just £199.99.
Aldi is launching the bar online initially, as well as a £20 drinks trug which will accompany it nicely.
The rattan bar comes with a grey wicker finish, stylish fittings and a black tempered glass top, as well as shelves for storage and a metal frame to hang wine glasses on.
If you don’t fancy paying the £6.95 delivery charge you can wait until May 16th when the bar will hit stores.
Asda has a similar bar with a more beachy theme and straw-look canopy which will set you back £299, but you also get two stools which Aldi’s doesn’t include.
However, Asda’s tiki bar is sold out online and won’t be returning for a while, so the Aldi one might be your best option.
