I was frustrated that I couldn't sort the drinks on the #Tesco website by 'price-per-ml' even though they handily have that attribute visable. So I wrote a quick scraper to download a product category and convert to CSV so I can filter/sort it myself.
It was eaiser than I expected as they store they whole page of product information as json in a data attribute on the body tag.
Cheap beers woo!

@neil I thought that costing column was price per unit of alcohol at first which made me think you were really going for it.😃
That's nice! I'm currently writing a scraper for spirit prices, mostly whisky, as they are super expensive.
