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.
When putting together a core range for a new brewery, it's a bold move to chose a Pilsner. They are expensive to produce and are a comparatively precise brew, so to successfully brew one right off the bat demonstrates the skill and experience this young brewery already possesses.
This is a one-off brew from the lads down in Deptford. Packing a mighty flavour into a tiny ABV, this is a tin we'll miss when it's gone.
No core range these days is compleat without a Pale Ale. Sticking broadly to the craft-beer playbook, Rodeo is a light, bright brew with a boatload of flavour and a packing a decent punch.
40FT's Pale is a crisp, clean pale ale brewed in a shipping container in Dalston. A beautifully hoppy aroma with a supportive malt backbone. A proper west-coast style Pale, this is a contemporary craft classic if ever there was one.
Yes, "Larger" - that's not a typo. Having brewed a big Cologne-style lager (you can't call it a kölch if it's not brewed in the city), it seemed like a fitting name. A bit more malt, a few more hops, super-crisp and utterly refreshing.
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).
