One of the best Tesco branches I have found for beer. Great selection spanning UK, US, Belgium and beyond. Good prices. If you are a central Londoner looking for a Tesco with better selection than those more central this is the place to go.

I have been to the big Tesco extra in Eastbourne, as well as at the Tesco extra in Ryde / IoW. Both supermarkets had a big selection and I found many, many new beers. Not only mainstream stuff, but also some craft beer gems from all over the world. Worth a visit.

The map shows the headquarters of Tesco. Like most of the big supermarkets they have a decent selection of ales, most popular lagers and plenty of own brands of both. They also do a good line in foreign beers in most of their larger supermarkets. The selection is limited to popular brands in their smaller stores.

As with all the supermarkets the range will vary depending on the size of the shop, and the range in the little Tesco Local & Metro ones is really not worth bothering. Iíve therefore based this review on their biggest "Extra" branded shops; in particular the one in Reading.
OK, itís the UKís biggest supermarket chain, and therefore people love to hate it (although their alleged aggressive business practices donít help them win popularity either). However, in reality one of the reasons theyíve become the biggest is by offering what people want, generally at very attractive prices. In terms of beer, this means that their Extra stores have the biggest beer range of any of the supermarkets - recently in the Reading store I estimated that they had well over 150 different beers - plus plenty of ciders too. This competes with many specialist beer stores. Now, obviously youíre not looking at world beating ultra rare beers here, and nor would you expect that in a major supermarket. A lot of their ale section is from the usual big regional UK brewers, although they do stock some more unusual seasonals from the regionals on rotation, so even here thereís probably going to be some ticks even for UK raters (and visitors from abroad will no doubt find plenty to interest them. They also stock ales from some the the larger micros (eg Williams Bros, Butcombe), and recently seem to have got in more local beers (West Berkshire have suddenly popped up in the Reading store). They also have a reasonal craft range (again nothing particularly unusual, but you can pick up the likes of Brewdog & Sierra Nevada among others at knockdown prices). They also have the Marstons Revisionist and Greene King Metropolitan craft ranges brewed especially for them, along with some other "Tesco" branded beers. Finally their "world beer" range (oddly split between the beer aisle and the world foods aisle) is certainly the best of the supermarkets - you can probably tick off 30-odd countries here, including the highly-rated Sri Lankan Lion Stout and the. errm, Carib Sorrel Shandy. All the beer ranges seem to have new beers added on a fairly frequent basis, so even for the regular visitor thereís a good chance of finding something new. Prices are pretty cheap, and thereís usually an offer like 4 for £6 or 3 for £5 covering most of the beers. Service is pretty average (you wonít find anyone who knows about beer, but staff are reasonably polite and helpful (certainly better than in Asda, Lidl or Aldi). The food selection is huge, and the world food aisles have some quite interesting stuff for a supermarket. Comparing it to the other UK supermarkets (itís obviously not fair to compare it to a specialist beer shop), itís probably not got the fanciest range - if you want higher quality beers (or for the matter better service or higher prices) youíll want to head to Waitrose or Marks & Spencers. However, if youíre purely looking for the biggest range of beer and many ticks, Tesco Extra beats all the other supermarkets hands down.

OK it is just a supermarket but it does have a fantastic selection of local, national and international ales. It is the only place walking distance from my home that has a decent variety of bottled beers.
