The Craft Beer Box
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.
Brick's first table beer! This low-ABV offering is generously hopped with Centennial and Simcoe, and is seriously sessionable. Well-bodied and juicy, this one is strong on flavour, but its low strength means it's perfect for unwinding of an evening.
Peckham Pale Ale (4.5%)
A lovely little American style Pale, packed full of US hops laid over an eclectic malt base. It's everything we look for in a beer of this style. Those hop additions through the boil lend aroma and just the right amount of bitterness, while the final hop-stand addition and choice of super-clean yeast show off the hop aromas beautifully.
Peckham Pils (4.8%)
This Czech-inspired Pilsner is brewed using traditional "noble" hops and lagered for a full 3 weeks. Lagering this long (keeping the beer close to freezing) helps clear the beer naturally, resulting in a bright, clean and very refreshing brew. This is a lager with real character.
The German word "Helles" loosely translates as "light" or "bright", and speaks to a style of larger that is just that - super pale thanks to very lightly kilned malts, it makes for perfect staging for the classic Saaz hop.
We love a session IPA here at DeskBeers, and this one really hits the spot. Packed full of juicy, hoppy goodness, but with a low enough ABV to let you retain focus on those spreadsheets without the cells going all wonkey.
Light, bright and doused in sunshine, just like the beautiful bay in Cornwall that this beer is named for. Brewed with sucrose and lots of hops, "bittersweet" is a fitting descriptor of this very approachable (dare we say "sessionable"?) brew.
