The DeskBeers Craft Beer Box
12 craft beers, £30+VAT
This is our signature box, our continuing rampage through the best and the brightest of independent UK brewing culture. Each week sees a new brewery commandeer our cardboard and showcase their beer. From the breweries you know and love to those you don’t yet know you love, every week we select something different for you to look forward to.
What’s in the box?
The DeskBeers box is designed to be shared. Each box contains 12 beers made up of 2 or 3 styles of beer (sometimes four) from a single brewery (but sometimes more). We try a pick "crowd-pleasers" - great craft beers that are interesting but not too off the wall. Usually we send out bottles, but sometimes we send out cans. We always send you the best beer possible.
We buy beer from around the country every week. Here are two boxes we're particularly excited about shipping to customers at the moment.
Festival Saison (4.8%)
A dry hopped saison with mosaic hops to the fore, built on a base of wheat, oats, and spicy Belgian yeast. These flavours interact beautifully with a delicate fruity aroma, making this dry, refreshing brew an ideal summer tipple.
Solo: Sorachi Ace (5.0%)
Signature's 'Solo' series celebrates single-ingredient beers, and this offering is a cracker. Solo: Sorachi Ace has a light, crisp malt bill, and a big hit of citrus flavour with herbal (lemongrass and dill) notes - that unique Sorachi Ace one-two. A sharp and refreshing use of this distinctive hop.
A collaboration with London alt-pop band Banfi, this is Signature's attempt at "the ultimate bittersweet beer." 281 grapefruits have gone into making this thirst-quenching grapefruit sour, which has a lighter and less bitter flavour than you might expect. The authentic fruit flavours here are a delight.
Hops and pale malts in perfect harmony. Floral notes and citrus flavours are front and centre. This brew packs a lot in at a very sessionable ABV.
A Blonde Ale in the European style. Beautifully hopped giving a fruity, almost spicy taste with a delicate floral nose. A perfect end to a hard day.
Apricot Sour (2.7%)
A table-strength sour from Moncada's Blueprint series. This one has an appealing spiciness to it, accentuating the bitterness from the fruit. The big hit of apricot on the noise is joined by other fruit flavours, including peach and pear, for a really juicy flavour profile.
The DeskBeers Big Beer Case
24 Big Beers, £48+VAT
Some craft breweries are small, some are a bit bigger. The important thing is that they all make great beer. With Big Beers, we’ve identified a shortlist of the bigger craft breweries that are brewing beer in larger quantities, thereby bringing down the price a little. We call these "Big Beers" - less small batch, more price match. Usually cans, sometimes bottles.
What’s in the box?
Big Beer cases are perfect for events, parties or bulking out your regular delivery. In each mixed case of 24 beers you’ll find an even split between a lager and a pale ale or IPA. The current roster of Big Beer Breweries includes BrewDog (Kingpin Lager, Punk IPA), Camden Town (Hells, Pale) & Meantime (London Lager, London Pale).
