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.
Brewed to show off the hops grown north of the equator, this is a big, floral, citrus fruit explosion of flavour. It's so good it's in Ratebeer's top 10 Golden Ales, too!
Brewed originally as a one off for the inaugural We Are Lager Festival in Manchester, Moor rapidly fell in love with the slightly hop forward crushable 4% lager. A very traditional lager brewed in homage to Franconia.
A "hoppy wheat beer" that draws influences from around the globe. US hops meet a typically German style of beer brewed with a very British sense of drinkability. The wheat makes this a really crisp, refreshing brew.
All Dayer (3.5%)
It's exactly what it says on the can, a great beer to have all day without compromising on flavour. Notes of orange peel with a light body and a clean finish. Yayer for All Dayer.
London Beer Lab
Table Beer (2.8%)
Ah Table Beer, how we adore thee. Always a welcome addition to session on. Mosaic and Ekuanot hops are the stars here, it's mashed high with oats and wheat giving it a fuller body than your average Table Beer.
Session IPA (Citra, Ekuanot, Mosaic, Simcoe) (4.2%)
The lower-strength IPA is one of craft brewing's great innovations, and needless to say LBL's contribution is top notch. A changing roster of hops goes into this one - this time it's Citra, Ekuanot, Mosaic and Simcoe - and the results are seriously quaffable. Big on fruity flavour, but with a sensible ABV.
Mosaic & Ekuanot (5.0%)
This is a bold and fruity pale ale, with a panoply of tropical fruit flavours abetted by a liberal injection of classic US hops. Expect notes of melon and pineapple in particular on the nose, and a bouquet of juicy flavours, giving way to a lightly bitter, hoppy finish. Bright, bold, and worryingly crushable!
Kaiser Pils (4.6%)
Brewed with Mandarina Bavaria hops and a Bavarian lager yeast strain, Kaiser Pils dials up the citrus for a rich and refreshing craft lager. The hops impart a hint of tangerine, making this light pilsner seriously thirst-quenching.
