Tesco are selling Banrock Station wine in flat recycled plastic bottles. I see this as having advantages:

you can carry two plastic bottles home for the same weight as a glass one
they fit sideways in the fridge door - so two bottles in the space of one

I would say these bottles will be a big hit for camping trips too


Only problem is that they contain Banrock Station wine...
Not when you have drunk them.

Why is Doom Bar pretty much ubiquitous? It’s quite a dull beer. I wish I’d bought something else now.

It's turned into my second-fave 0.0%, but lags a long way behind Leffe.  Which in Morrison's case they had not got.

A while back, I learned that the only guinness brewed outside of Ireland is from Nigeria.
The landlord of my local was intrigued and ordered a load off of that amazon.
Anyway, that's what I'm drinking right now.
7.5%  :o
2 stars. Would not recommend.  YMMV.
Admission.  I'm actually not that fussed about cake.

It's my go to 0.0 beer, tastes better than normal Doom Bar (not saying much) and far fewer calories than Erdinger which I put above the Leffe.

Miss von Brandenburg, who used to guzzle Hefeweizen to the nth degree back in the day, is most uncomplimentary about the Erdinger which has put me off trying it.

Meanwhile, I are drinking, if that's the word, Gaviscon.
I've dusted off all those old bottles and set them up straight

The Erdinger with ethanol in it is perfectly acceptable but Miss von Brandenburg says the alcohol-free version “tastes like Malzbier”.

I got a "job" - celebration time :)

I've had some of that,  very nice

Over the last week for me sampling birthday libations, Balvennie 14 yo carribean (rum) cask, Caperdonich 18 yo peated. Both wonderful in their own way. Mrs ED definitely doesn't like the latter.

Have you tried Brulo? The stout is pretty good. https://www.brulobeer.com/collections/shop/products/dry-hopped-stout
