The Mysterious Finkbrau

Finkbrau is great. Not only does it taste great, it also carries a mystery. I noticed this the other day. The Finkbrau in the office is housed in brown bottles. Yet the Finkbrau in the flat is housed in green bottles.

Why is this?

My bet is that Lidl are just too cheap and use recycled bottles (which should be applauded), hence the consistency of bottles are not what you expect from the more expensive supermarkets.

What is your theory? Answers to be sent to

I agree, Finkbrau is probably one of the finest lagers I've tasted in ages. Rich, hoppy and priced to suit the student budget Finkbrau helps me while away the lonely hours night after night!

just thought i'd contribute the amazing fact that 24 bottles of finkbrau bought from lidl in moutiers, france is 4.39 euros...that's £2.97 according to just now.

148 bottles of delicious finkbrau for under 12 quid.

i'm just gonna open another.

Just tasted Finkbrau for the first time, was so impressed I did a search to here for it. Clean, smooth and slightly malty- that'll do for me(at touch over £1 a litre).

Potverfinken nog an toe.

Finkbrau is the best beer when you are playing a game of poker in front of your trailer, when you play petanque in front of your trailer, when you stand behind the bar naked, when you play a game of Negeren, when you play a game of poephoofd...........actually..........It tastes good everywhere!!

Today is maybe the most beautiful day of my life because me & my friend were thinking that we were the only lidl specialists in the world. But in fact we are your french associates!

We are so proud to drink finkbrau that we have made short movies about the incredible taste that spread all around our body, and this feeling of fullness overwhelming us.

We'll create a link in our pages to your website because we think that you are people like us, and we'll eventually rule the world.

See ya!
