At BrewDog? That’s BS. How much is the Dale’s? Oskar Blues isn’t cheap in the US, but that price is still about 3-4x what you would pay Stateside.

Yep at BrewDog Birmingham, Dale’s was about £6.50 355ml, Deviant Dale and G’Knight were about £8 each 500ml can.

I love Oskar Blues but those prices are a little painful. It would be easier to visit the States for a short holiday and drink some great beers and then fill your suitcase up on the way home. On my last NY trip I bought a lot of cans (21st Amendment and Oskar Blues) to bring home, really easy to pack and transport home safely to Blighty.

Oskar Blues costs about 2.50 gbp here in Sweden from the state-owned stores. Brewdog seem to be milking it a bit.

I was referring to the Dales Pale Ale, but the Ten Fidy cost about 5.25 when it was out.

When I was in Stockholm around this time last year I actually bought a few bottles of BrewDog beers because they were cheaper at Systembolaget than they are in the UK.

Weren’t BD bottles also cheaper when we went to Drankengeers?

Some BrewDog beers are cheaper in Terre de Boissons in Cite Europe in Calais as well.



I still find the 660ml bottles of Punk IPA in Sainsburys to be the cheapest BD hit. Or wait until the 330ml bottles are down to £1 a bottle or 2 for £2.

Dales Pale Ale was very nice. At two months it’s hardly ’old’.
