I am collecting two 5 litre bag-in-boxes from our local brewery next Friday, which is really a little early for Christmas.
I will have a look at what our Tesco is offering as well. We usually do a tour of the local supermarkets to see what's available, but I'm not sure we'll bother this year.

I have, in the beer cellar, I mean garage, 16 Bad Co beers (drink local, kids!) and 4 of their barrel aged
8 Loch Lomand Brewery (Zoom Time I think)
a couple of 72 Brewing beers (again not 100% certain of the beer)
16 cans of Goose Island (for the plebs)

In the house I have Delerium (Tremens and Rose?) A couple of Vocation, a couple of Tiny Rebel and a Brew York X Vocation.

Think I'll be ok until the shops re-open.  If not, I have a bottle of Benrennies 15 yr old to work through

Timing is the issue. I'm hoping to get over to my local brewery for some Christmas supplies but I'll need to fit in a visit around work, and I'm working right up to Christmas Eve... Although I suppose that since I'm WFH, I could sneak out during the day.

Te brewery will deliver for free to our address, and we've used that option a couple of times. However, one Friday, back in the summer, they were very late, gone eight in the evening, and the chap looked absolutely shattered, so we've collected since then. It's only a quarter of an hour's drive and MrsC likes the trip out. The brewery is also very close to our tip/recycling centre so we often combine the two.

Similar situation here - they will deliver but we’re on the fringes of the area they cover so I’d rather save them the trouble.

There’s a direct route from my house straight through the woods that’s easily the best way to get to the brewery, but a bit too rough to be transporting beer over. Road route is a lot more circuitous and longer.

Mine has been delivered this evening. A box of 4 x dark bottles and 4 x light. Free delivery within 5 mls too. They are all RAIB, which I'm looking forward to.

I was just about to say that. Plus 4 cases of white from the Wine Society (being as I couldn't get any more from Portugal Vinyards)  a box of mystery stuff addressed to Pingu which I was not permitted to inspect and a hamper (read a box of snacks and a bottle of red) from my employer.

Popped into Tesco this morning, always check out if they have the Leffe Brun on special offer but they didn't, however I did notice 2x6 cans of a Pistonhead selection on offer for £9 so I had those.

Since there'll only be the four of us this year, and only me drinking beer, and not drinking a lot of it either these days, I'll probably just add a couple of more interesting bottles to an online delivery.

The last 4-pack of 6X I bought has lasted a month so far.

Assistance will not be required thank you. I have a son and a son-in-law who might pop in - Covid permitting of course. Don't know what's going on yet.

Ive just ordered a couple of mixed cases from Stewart Brewing based just outside Edinburgh which includes Edinburgh Gold, Holyrood Pale and a nice dark 80 shilling so a nice mix of styles all at quaffable strengths.

Ive also got some Leffe Winter Beer on order and a case of Corncrake pale from Orkney (its nicer on draught mind).

I have about 30 mixed cans of Vocation Life and Death and Northern Monk Faith Hazy, a case of Corona, and a case of Singha.

Just seen a FB Vocation post with an offer of 12 330ml cans of the special stuff, so I did.
