Packs of Tetleys

48 posts in this topic

it isn't even proper tetleys any more, and their tinned beer was ghastly anyway.

 

I aint buying #### just because it says rugby league on it

 

Neither am I. I haven't touched Tetleys since they closed the Leeds brewery on principle.  I don't care if it tastes the same or not. (I'm told it doesn't) I won't drink it.

Where do you get the KP cider from?

Found it in a local One Stop. Only place I have seen it though.

I saw it in The Cellar Bar at Batley station (on the ale trail) last Friday when I went to watch the England - Exiles game. TBH it was only when I saw it there I realised it was cider - I thought it was a printers or publishing company. :ph34r:

Any excuse for the beer snobs to get err, snobby.

 

Anyroad, do a double thumbs up and buy Kingstone Press cider from Keelham Hall farmshop in Bradford.

 

(They better send me a free bottle or two for that plug)

Got some in Asda a few weeks back for the wife, and saw some in a pub in the next village up from Culcheth, Warrington when we were there for the Exiles weekend. Though I might have imagined that one after 123 cans of Tetleys!!

Nice apparently. Didn't get to sample it myself. List time I drank cider, i was still at school. Though I think it's come on a bit since then.

I love cider. Problem is I drink a pint in about 10 seconds.

 Got to be cider. According to the papers, school has gone backwards since my day. Apparently back then, we had to earn out qualifications, whereas my kids just get given there's for turning up, every now and then.

Timothy Taylors used to have a huge advert on the roof of the main stand at Lawkholme Lane, errr Cougar park. That's a good enough excuse for me to drink one of Btitain's premier brews.

Flatcappers in "no never, been there once, never going again" shocker

 

One day we may get what you consider to be the better products endorsing RL, until then lets be happy (urgh that awful word that might involve smiling) that we have some exposure. If you don't like the product itself fair enough, I don't like it either, or any bitter/mild, but I'd promote it to those that do. I might even be naughty and move it to the front on shelves - like moving RL mags in front on RU ones

You can call me a fervent traditionalist if you like. I don't care.  Tetleys was brewed in Leeds.  It got its reputation because of something that happened in the Leeds brewery.  Carlsberg closed the Leeds brewery and are now  treating it as a "brand" not a "product"  I don't buy "brands" if I can avoid it, I buy products that I enjoy.

 It was on sale at The Emirates stadium a few weeks ago, considering how much they were selling I was disappointed that there was nothing on the labels or banners showing their connection to RL even though its doubtful it would have been noticed by many there

aint no flat capper shudder

 

all I'm saying is I'm not going to by #### just because it's got rugby league written on it.

 

and 

 

the stuff that is on offer is invariably downmarket and stereotype reinforcing.

 

there are many people out there IMHO who would like to buy high end merchandise and memorabilia. This applies at club level as well.

I'll have a look at my local supermarkets, see if they're nationwide

Anybody seen the new (I think) packs of Tetleys beer in the Supermarkets? I've just seen them dotted around Tescos with a picture of 4 Players and the Challenge cup on the front of the box. Brilliant exposure!! I was that excited I had to start a thread.

4 players? Why isn't there a player from each team to compete in the Cup? This is proof of a game divided, farce!

Glad I'm not the only one daft enough to engage in this activity every time I find myself in WHSmiths. Childish but I enjoy it!

I did it the other day in the supermarket, a twelve-pack of Tetley's fits nicely in front of the union magazines, and they got ###### wet through as well.

RL is a great sport to partner with if you want to build a brand in the north. With Selco havin plans to build their presence the RFL should approach them, they are a perfect fit for the game.

Don't they already sponsor Broncos? Or is that Serco?
