THE HAIR OF THE DOG THAT BIT YOU THE NIGHT BEFORE”

THE EXPERIENCES OF HOMELESS PEOPLE ADDICTED TO SUPER-STRENGTH LAGERS & CIDERS



You can’t buy Tenant’s Super, Carlsberg Special Brew, White Ace or any other super strength lager or cider in pubs or bars. And you can’t buy them in ‘nice’ neighborhoods either. But you can find these drinks in small off- licenses in less well heeled parts of towns and cities everywhere.


The homelessness charity Thames Reach is currently lobbying Government and the drinks industry to ban the sale of super strength lagers and ciders. Thames Reach claim that five out of six deaths at their hostels are a direct result of drinking what is commonly known as ‘tramp juice’.


Thames Reach further argue that these high-strength drinks are deliberately set at a low price (many of these products can be bought for less than a pound per can,  the same price as lagers and ciders half their strength) to target  individuals with  alcohol dependency problems and little money in their pockets.
