    Any recommendations?

    Good deals? Nice beers? Also any supermarkets do draught lagers in mini kegs/ polypins?

    Cheers

    For ale, Morrison's is the best of the supermarkets, also check out Rhythm and Booze.

    Mini kegs (5 ltr) - Bradfield Brewery, Acorn Brewery

    Netto are selling minikegs of Warsteiner for £9.99

    ASDA do plenty of nice ales; Badger are some of my particular favourite.

    Also, try Wells Banana Bread Beer if you see any.

    To Clarify

    I want real ale polypins (as opposed to bottles) as
    a) a gift for someone

    and b)
    to cater for real ale drinkers at a party

    and I want draught lager for lager drinkers at a party

    None of it's for me. Oh no.

    Warsteiner is primarily a Pilsner style lager, but does come in different varieties.

    Dunkel; Weissbier etc.

    Try Acorn Brewery at Wombwell....except they aren't open on Saturday and close at 5 in the week. Bradfield Brewery are cheaper (£15 for a 5 ltr keg or 2 kegs for £25) but then it's on edge of Peak District so more of a drive out but go to brewery on a Sat and then to local pub for lunch which is what we do!
    It went down really well on Saturday at our BBQ.

    Some nice beers there, but expensive

    5 ltrs is about 9 pints.....so 2 5 ltr kegs (18pints) at Bradfield for £25 versus about £40 for 18 pints.
    Actually Bradfield do those boxes as well for £22 I think

    I'd recommend the Bradfield Blonde and the Brown Cow - both went down well at our BBQ
