But if it keeps the kind of people who use Deliveroo out of the stores...

Was this in Lidl? I had a bunch of that while in France earlier in the year. Went down pretty well with a BBQ although some of them where pretty strong at ~8% I think they had a stout and a German red beer too.

Aldi have the Phillips Perfect Draft on special buy, hopefully it means they will start stocking the kegs.

Doubt it, I did they didn’t even sell it with a key of something though.

Online only, sold out and was no cheaper than anywhere else

Quite a few local Premier type shops are starting to stock the kegs now.

"ROB" judging by the numberplate was today.
Car was in click & collect space when I went in, still there when I'd finished shopping.(steering wheel lock in place)

Matlock too, but I am not sure where. Possibly in Cawdor quarry, along to where Permanite's site remained after the Sainsbury's was developed.

I have heard that rumour. With a population of 6 thousand I can't see it.
Although it would be great if it did because it would kill off the Co-Op. I fking loathe the Co-Op.

Significantly more than Bakewell though and their shop is busy. As is Ashbourne's. Matlock would be easier though and it would gain Wirksworth's trade too, which I suppose is what they aim for.

Land is also a problem the only place they could put it would be down near Haarlem Mill and that's not really big enough. Who knows though.
