I have a problem with Tesco. It’s like our version of Walmart. You really don’t need to shop anywhere else. They’d offer brain surgery at a discounted rate if they thought it would turn a profit. The problem is that their success is built on the failure of other smaller businesses and squeezing every last drop out of their suppliers. That’s massively over simplified I know, but that’s not what this blog is about. When they start stocking a range called ‘Revisionist Craft Beer’ that’s brewed for them by Marston’s I had to try them.
They’re four for €9 so I’d suggest trying the Dark IPA, the Californian Common Steam beer, the Rye Pale Ale and the Saison. The Dark IPA is the best, the rest are not bad. And in the same manner that you can off set your carbon footprint I think you should put in a large order with your friendly, knowledgeable, independent off licence. Sláinte!
