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.
Named after Brixton’s famous street market road, this American Pale Ale packs a punch with bold aromas and intense flavours. It’s been brewed with three styles of hops, Citra, Simcoe and Galaxy with each one giving the beer a hit of tropical flavour.
Low Voltage (4.3%)
The little brother of Brixton Brewery's core-range Electric IPA, Low Voltage is a very sessionable 4.3%. A little less on the ABV, but still buzzing with hops.
Nuclear Dawn (4.7%)
Brewed in collaboration with soon-to-be brewery Duration (they are building an epic brewhouse in Norfolk as we speak), Nuclear Dawn is Brixton through and through. The name takes its inspiration from a local mural, and the botanicals that set this brew apart were sourced from the local markets.
Pale Fire (4.8%)
Is this the perfect Pale Ale? It has everything we look for in a beer of this style - zingy tropical fruits, pine needle bitterness and lovely mouthfeel. A great hoppy beer that, for us, sets a high benchmark.
We loved finding the big old juicy flavours we'd expect from an American Pale mixed up with the dry, crisp finish we know and love from some of the Belgian classics. A real culture clash, in the best possible way.
Sometimes served with a slide of fruit salad, Wallbanger is not one of those commercial Witbiers that have come to dominate the style. While it may look the part, this beer is brewed with all the citrus and spice it needs. Leave the fruit out of it!
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).
