Newly available Beers

August 10, 2008

On Saturday, Waitrose in Richmond, and I came across their expanded range of Meantime Brewery’s range – in this case 750ml bottles of London Porter and India Pale Ale. These are in larger versions of their 330ml bottles, and wired cork enclosured.

But my real shopping is Waitrose, Beaconsfield, on Sunday. They have a larger range of Beers here, although not Meantime as they are not “local”. This branch even stocked Grolsch Weizen beer, in reused (standard) swingtop bottles and Dutch labels (sadly no longer).

However, to my surprise, there was Marston’s Oyster Stout (which I used to buy in Sainsburys about a decade ago, and then disappeared), and Black Sheep Brewery’s Yorkshire Square Ale.

If that was not enough, there were 750ml wired corked bottles of Duvel.

(I might try and post a picture of these in the next few days…)

Naturally I had to purchase a few samples for evaluation…
