Yeah whats going on with Beer. Stella, Kronenbourg etc all down to 4.8%, Even Mrs D's M&S Cocktails down from 11% to 8%!

British beer (and its made here) is now completely pish. The imported stuff is ok but costs a bomb. I only drink Leffe Blonde now at 6.6% but for some reason it doubles in price when it crossed the channel.

Probably trying to get rid of the "wifebeater" reputation. :scared: :scared: :scared:

If there is a polish shop near where you are then I would suggest you call in and get some of their beer/s, I'm not a beer aficionado (prefer the red stuff):beer: but I did like what I was drinking when we where there in august,

Customs duty avoidance. The people who make Stella, etc., are saving a fortune, but are not passing on the savings to us punters. I don't drink their beer any more even though I starting drinking Stella some 30 years ago.
I get through quite a lot of Gordon's though....

Try this - Brewdog.com. Beers at 15.1%. Brewery is in Aberdeenshire but they sell on line.

I had a Schorschbocks or something or other in Germany once that was 30%. Like flipping treacle. Hit the spot though although the bike was a bit wobbly on the way back to the van.

Seems the decrease in alcohol is down to duty and costs.

Pity. I used to tollerate Stella and Kronenbourg but not anymore. Rubbish unless you get the imported stuff and you might as well have a Leffe then!

Its not just beer spirits have had 5% reduction in strength and 5cl in capacity and instore bakeries have been able to make 5%-10% more sausage rolls from the same quantity of mix! and bread exp baguettes have gone shorter all for the same price-welcome to rip off Britain.
