Photos from Lidl in the Algarve last October. 1.99 for a decent bottle of Portuguese wine. You would pay at least 5.99 for an average bottle of wine over here in Ireland.
6 bottles of Heineken cerveja or beer for 3.99. It 13 something here.
I am seriously thinking of having a break from alcohol. It's far too expensive and would probably do me good both health wise and financially?
I had a "dry " October two years a go. I felt great physically but mentally I felt down at times and very bored. I even tried none alcohol beer. It was boring and water would have sufficed to feel the same.
I do think Governments put too much duty on alcohol. It's The Budget in Ireland this week. I bet they increase the tax on alcohol? They always do. I never go in Irish pubs these days because it's too expensive at 5 .50 a pint and a taxi is fifteen Euros one way. That's if you can get one?
When I was in Blighty in August I paid 2 Pounds six pence for a pint of Doombar in a certain popular brewery chain.
Any one brew their own beer? I have tried a few times with beet kits but I wasn't struck. Perhaps I never let them mature enough?
