As much as I love wine I find myself getting more excited over a good beer! You can beat a nice refreshing cold glass of beer on a summer evening, or at any time if I’m totally honest. I guess that’s why I enjoyed reviewing Honest Brew so much.
Honest Brew is the UK’s best online beer service. They research small batch beers form around the world and then tailor each selection to your preferences.
“HonestBrew works with microbreweries from across the world, including
Beavertown, Lervig and Yeastie Boys, to offer a huge range of unique beers. With
95% of the beers sold by HonestBrew not available in supermarkets, this
personalised and curated service offers users something unique.”
There are three types of subscription boxes of beer to choose from;
The Beer Club – offers 2 x 6 craft beers sent every month for £29.90 (£10 off first delivery) This is the no fuss subscription and it is great if you just want some tasty beer each month.
The Tailor Made – offers 12 brewery fresh craft beers every month for £35.50 (£10 off first delivery) Your subscription is tailor made to your tastes.
The Treasure Chest – offers 12 exclusive and hard to find craft beers every month for £39.90 (£10 off first delivery) Again your subscription is tailored to your tastes.
All three subscriptions promise a flexible subscription (you can cancel or pause any time) and free delivery.
Interested? Why don’t you try a Taster Kit, I can offer you one with 50% off that’s just £9 for six craft beers. Just visit Honest Brew through my blog to get this fantastic offer.
I was sent a six beer taster kit to review myself. It’s a great way to get a taste of the different types of beers available and see which ones you like best.
In my box I had;
Beavertown Neck Oil – an India Pale Ale which is refreshing light and crisp but packs a punch. It’s the kind of ale you can drink at any time of day for refreshment.
Buxton Wild Boar – Another India Pale Ale from the Buxton Brewery in Derbyshire. It had an aroma of lime and mango but you can also taste honey and malt. It had a lovely frothy head on top of a pale straw coloured beer.
- Light/crisp – light and easy drinking lagers or pale ales.
- Citrusy/fruity – refreshing, often bitter hop-focused beers
- Malty/toffee – never overly bitter, occasionally sweet and warming
- Roasted/chocolate – usually rich, full bodied, and brewed with darker malts
- Wild/Interesting – Experimental and wild, these test the boundaries of what beer is thought to be.
- Earthy/spicy – expect herbal and earthy flavours.
Honest Brew also have an informative blog, I liked this post about Vegan Brews, Particularly as I have a vegan friend coming over for drinks soon.
They have their own shop where you can buy individual cans and bottles if you don’t fancy a regular subscription. Or you can buy Howlers, which are tubes containing three cans of beer and are ideal for transporting to parties or festivals. Or you can buy a mixed case of beers, there are several options to choose from and are a one off purchase.
Honest Brew are offering my readers a 50% discount on a Taster Pack, that’s just £9 for 6 craft beers!
I would recommend Honest Brew to my friends and family and beer lovers everywhere. They provide a unique service and the prices are decent. The subscriptions are easy and adaptable and the best value as you are rewarded with free postage and with some you get an extra discount in their shop if you need to top up with extra beer if you need it. I was given the taster pack free for the purpose of this review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
My dad actually collects beer bottles and labels (probably an excuse to drink a few each week!). These subscriptions sound great x
Blimey! Beer in the post, pretty cool! My husband would love this will send him the link!
I think this is something my husband might enjoy. He drinks very infrequently though and I would worry it would waste!
Some of the labels are pretty cool, definitely collectable.
Yes, it's great stuff and you can get beer not easily found in shops and off licenses.
We don't drink a lot, mostly just special events, but it's great when you can get a subscription you can pause at any time if you've not managed to finish the last lot sent.
I'm not a beer drinker at all but I know someone who is that would love this x x
There is always someone who loves beer x
We have tried a couple of these boxes before – well, my husband mainly as he's the beer drinker! We do love a subscription box in this house 😀
I love real ales and I don't very often get round to drinking them these days as I don't make so many pub trips – should get some for home.
This sounds great, if we weren't watching our weight then I'd probably order one x
This would be a great gift for my fella, or for my Dad – they both love their beer – I am more of a bourbon girl myself!
We all have huge friend list who actually like to enjoy drinking in party, mostly beer or expensive wine. They have sophisticated taste and are worth the expense. As demand has grown over the years the Trappist monks have limited their supply.
