This top Manchester bar is offering £1 pints to stop beer going to waste

The offer's available on every draught beer at Albert's Schloss, a saving of up to £4.60 a pint - or you can take away a litre for £2.50

Soon, Manchester pubs and bars will have to close their doors once more as the country enters another period of lockdown from this Thursday.

But from today until the end of play Wednesday, Albert’s Schloss will be serving £1 pints (with a substantial meal, of course) – an initiative designed to stop their beer going to waste.

The offer is available on every one of their draught beers, so you can take a tour of the taps to #WasteNotWantNot.

And you can also take away a 1 litre growler of your favourite beer for only £2.50.

The Bavarian bier palace’s most famous beer is their fresh, foaming pints of Pilsner Urquell – which is usually £5.40 a pint.

Every week they make a 1500 mile round trip to the Pilsner Urquell brewery in Plzeň, just outside Prague, to fill the four huge 900-pint shiny copper tanks that dominate their main bar area.

The 4.4% ABV beer must be drunk within seven days to preserve its freshness.

Last year, Albert’s Schloss launched a new beer just for Manchester – a pilsner called Manchester Rein, brewed here in the rainy city. 

The fresh and unpasteurised Bavarian style pilsner, which is made in accordance with Reinheitsgebot, the German bier purity law, is made with English hops combined with traditional malt and yeast from Munich.

It complements the bar’s wide range of beers from Germany, Belgium and the Czech Republic, including Paulaner, Dortmunder, Schofferhoffer, Fruhli and Kozel on tap.

The draught beers are usually priced between £4.50 and £5.60 a pint.

If you wish to consume alcohol, in line with Manchester’s current Tier 3 Covid-19 restrictions you must be dining and must only visit with members of your own household.

Albert’s Schloss will be open from 4pm until 10pm Monday to Wednesday this week. The £1 offer is available on every draught beer until they’re gone. Alcoholic drinks must be served with a substantial meal. Bookings are strongly advised, and Albert’s Schloss is currently accepting bookings for up to six people from the same household.
