Mainly Bud and San Miguel, ordered some from Brewdog (Triple Hazy Jane and 'Born to Die') which were decent a few weeks ago.

I've gotten into Red Wine too for the first time.

The missus bought me 24 bottles of Orval for my birthday and it's my absolute favourite beer to drink so I showed a modicum of restraint for the first time ever and managed to make them last a month.

Now I'm out of beer entirely and the local shop only has Fosters available so I'm abstaining from beer until they get some better stuff in.

Hopefully they have a delivery soon...

Never thought I'd be desperate for some Bud or San Miguel <urgh> <laugh> Wine has been my saviour from the Heineken. Hungarian, Argentinian, French, English, Chilean, some older bottles, red, white, sparkling <awe>

I don't mind Heineken but it's all they seem to even have in cans in Morrisons in any cases over 8 and it's hard to drink vast quantities of.

On one of my government approved walks early on I passed a van delivering from a local brewery that I had no idea existed. Now ordered some lovely IPAs whilst supporting local business. Can I have some rep please?

I checked a few local breweries and we're just over two miles outside thier delivery areas.

Same with all the online delivery services for booze. One of them cant deliver as I'm 200 metres outside thier catchment! I offered to walk 200 metres closer and meet them on a street corner but they declined.

The missus ordered Deliveroo (out of catchment) to our daughter's nursery for when picking her up

I've drank s*** loads in the 9 weeks I've been on lockdown, much more than I would ordinarily drink. I'm not getting shitfaced or anything (parental responsibilities etc.), just enjoying maybe a few cans of beer or a few glasses of wine in the evening and a little bit more on weekends, but it's nearly every day <laugh>. I think it's the lack of having to get up and drive to work the next day that's doing it.

What has everyone been drinking throughout lockdown? My lockdown has mainly consisted of Heineken.
I started with Heineken as it was on offer. Have also had Bud and Amstel. Had plenty of ales as well and a few ciders. And a litre of Honey JD.

If it's only nearly every day then you're not doing it right.

Jesus, I hope they cleaned all the anti-freeze out of it before filling it with beers <erk>. 5 pints-ish per night? Easy.

Very late to this thread, but what on earth is pyder? I've personally drinking Aldi's own brand whiskey during lock down. Samuel Joe's. It's pretty good for twelve quid. Otherwise it's lager, usually fosters or Heineken.

MrsOT went to Aldi today and picked me up a 4 pack of Rheinbacher lager and it's not too bad at all considering its £3 for 4 cans.

Surprised.
