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.
An Amber Ale with a full body and a well rounded profile. Sweet and creamy, almost toffee-like in taste. Laced with hops leading to wonderfully bitter finish.
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.
Pink Grapefruit Sour Pale Ale (2.7%)
A table-strength sour from Moncada's Blueprint series. The Pink Grapefruit Sour Pale is a crisp and refreshing brew, perfect for livening yourself up after a long day. Citric and lightly bitter, this is a sour for people who don't think they like sours!
Lab Technician (w/Stewart Brewing) (3.3%)
Electric Bear and Stewart call Lab Technician a "micro IPA", and it's a real winner. All of the multi-hopped goodness and dry-hopping shenanigans you expect from an IPA, but cunningly wrapped up in a session-strength package. Huge on flavour, low on ABV - and squarely in the DeskBeers wheelhouse.
A full-on, fruity number, perfect for the slow march to springtime. Tropical flavours are balanced by a crisp bitterness, making this an ideal drink for those lengthening nights.
For their flagship IPA, Electric Bear don't hold back, packing it full of fruit flavours (think peaches and cream, pineapple and passion fruit) and Cascade, Simcoe, and Waimea hops. A crisp and punchy finish balances the sweetness of the fruit.
BIG UP! Dr Rudi (4.8%)
Dr Rudi is the first Southern Hemisphere hop Electric Bear have brewed with, and it makes a hell of a debut here. Notes of grapefruit, citrus, and pine on the nose give way to huge flavours of the same, all the way through this deliciously juicy pale. Put us down for some more of Dr Rudi's medicine!
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).
