So before Christmas, I was very kindly sent the Christmas box from the very lovely people at Beer52. You might have seen the box pop up in my Christmas Gift Guide 2016 but I wanted to give you a proper review of this box of beers, and your very own dicount code (so keep reading until the end if you want to get your hands on that!)
So if you’ve never heard of Beer52, I’ll fill you in. They are the UK’s biggest craft beer discovery club and they offer a subscription service that sends you a selection of craft beers to try every month from around the world.
First of all, the beer experts choose the best beers personalised to you. Then, you get sent eight different craft beers, a snack, and a copy of ‘Ferment’ magazine. Delivery is free and you can try the beers in your own time. Once you’ve started the ball rolling and signed up, you will get the beer in 2-3 days. You get sent one case per month (although this can be adapted if you need to by getting in touch with the team).
What is special about this club is that the beers are exclusive, unique and small batch. That means none of the beer you see all the time in bars and pubs. The beer is also very fresh, having only been brewed 4-6 weeks ago. Plus there are lots of benefits to being in the beer club – from loyalty rewards, to free beers, to merchandise, its defintiely worth being part of this club! However, if you’d rather, you can just sign up for a one off box here.
So the price of the subsription box is £24 for 8 beers or £29 for 10 beers on a monthly plan billed every 28 days. Or you can save money by paying for 3, 6 or 12 month memberships (3 months -£23/case; 6 months – £22/case; 12 months – £21/case).
If you are a regular reader of this blog, or someone who knows me well, you wouldn’t think that this is the kind of product I would go for. However, I really loved the concept of the box, and I knew that this was something I could enjoy with my other half. I was really intrigued about what I would be sent. Plus, who doesn’t love a nice beer every now and then?!
I was sent ‘Ferment’ magazine, the UK’s number one craft beer magazine to read whilst sipping on my beer:
I was also sent a yummy snack to try whilst enjoying my beers:
These were the beers I recieved, one at a time:
I won’t be reviewing each beer individually as each box will vary depending on your tastes. However, I really enjoyed the selection of beers I recieved, as did my other half. I also appreciated the fact that some Christmas/festive inspired beers were included with it being just before Christmas when I was sent the box. Obviously, some beers we enjoyed more than others, but it was great being able to try such a range. I think that Beer52 is a great present idea for that craft beer fan in your life, or even as a treat for yourself! Its a great way to discover new beers that you might not have come across before, and because it is personalised to you, you’re more than likely to love them! There are different plans to choose from, or just a one off box, so you can just see what works best for you!
So do you want £10 off your order? Simply enter JEAN10 to get a tenner off! That means 8 beers for just £14. Don’t say I never treat you! (Just a heads up, the discount code can only be used with the Beer Club, not one off boxes.)
Until next time…
[*I was very kindly sent this box to try for free. However, all views are completely my own, and I would never review something I didn’t love myself.*]
