Sainsbury’s is the second largest supermarket chain in the UK with over 1,300 stores all round the country. To my mind is is not helpful to have a single "composite" listing for Sainsburys any longer (if it ever was). They come in several different formats, ranging from small local convenience stores to massive superstores. Not surprisingly the beer range varies hugely depending on the size of the store. In common with other supermarket chains there are now often regional variations in the beer range, with some movement towards stocking local products. Against that background it’s impossible to to give meaningful scores that relate to the chain as a whole or to provide useful information about what beers are available. A composite listing is also unhelpful in assisting RateBeer users to find a place to buy beer. Although supermarkets would not usually be the preferred places to buy beer, in some places they are the best (or even only) realistic option. Where this is the case, there’s no way of communicating this to RateBeer users and, in any event, they’d have to visit Sainsbury’s own website to find out where the nearest branch is. Nowadays, the RateBeer policy is to allow pretty much any place to be listed so the argument that we shouldn’t clog up the database with large numbers of supermarket branches, which might be relevant if there was a more selctive regime, doesn’t really hold water.

All I can really say is that Sainsbury’s has a reasonable beer range but it has fallen behind some of the other supermarket chains (e.g. Marks & Sppencer) in this respect. Sometimes, depending on where you are, Sainsbury’s is the best of a limited range of beer buying options. Sometimes it isn’t. There’s no point in me adding availability information showing what beers they have as this will vary from branch to branch.

Visited a small Sainsbury on Queensway. 20 bottles of not high quality. Got Doom and some low quality NZ-ciders. Maybe the larger shops in the outside of city has better selection?

Well wort visiting for a foreigner like me. Quite normal grocery store selection. And standard average prices. I always find some interesting beers while in England. But understand locals that think it is quite boring.

Huge UK Supermarket chain that used to have a progressive beer choice policy which has sadly lapsed over the last few years. I haven’t been able to pick up anything new in ours for over a year which is disappointing. If you are visiting the UK then you will pick up beers for reasonable prices.

Small "supermarket" in the heart of Welshpool. Small beer selection, but it includes some craft beers from the United States, Scotland, England., and some Welsh real ales (which they don’t carry in England; if you ask about Welsh beer in England they give you directions to Wales).

Several locations across the UK and along several years. I guess selection is not impressive for locals, but coming from a country where you hardly find anything else than mainstream lagers, finding some nice classic british ales is more than ok.

Were in the Sainsbury’s of Eastbourne and on the Isle of Wight on our last England vacation. The beer selection was big, although you are able to find 90% of their beers in the other big supermarkets. There are some small gems to be found, also cider-wise. Prices average. Worth a look-through.
