Yesterday, I took a trip to Waitrose to check the details of my previous post only to find that the two Meantime beers mentioned had increased in price to £3.99 for a 75cl bottle.
On reflection, I guess that the price of £2.66 before Christmas was a 3 for 2 offer (yes, I can do the maths) although it was not advertised as such.
£3.99 is still good value (in my opinion) for beers of such quality - and strength - but obviously not the bargain that I suggested - Sorry.
Meantime have not had much CAMRA recognition over the years as they supply very little cask beer to pubs even though pretty much all of their bottled beer is "real".
They are a brewery that CAMRA London tries hard to support within those confines and hopefully we will see some more of the excellent cask versions at some beer festivals in the coming year.
