Beer Club Box August 2018

Terroir and the sense of place is often overlooked in beer, despite being a cornerstone of wine, spirits and even most cocktails. But beer can be every bit as indicative of a place or moment in time...

Beer Club Box July 2018

Is there any better feeling than a crisp, cold beer on a hot day? We don’t think so, that’s why we’ve put together a selection of crafty summer sippers for this month’s beer club...

Beer Club Box June 2018

I’ll be totally honest, we started off with a plan to showcase a brewery from 10 of the qualifying nations for this summer’s World Cup. That was however, before we took a good hard look at who had actually qualified...

Beer Club Box May 2018

We have focused on a lot of regions and countries in these beer club boxes over the last few years, so we can’t believe its taken us so long to showcase the incredible work being done in the north of England right now...

Beer Club Box April 2018

Lets face it, it’s been a pretty long and fairly bleak winter these past few months and the Beast from the East didn’t help much either. The sun is however starting to peak its head through the clouds and the daffodils are out in force is Kent, so we figured it was high-time to banish the snow shoes and look forwards to Springtime...

Beer Club Box March 2018

It’s been years since we did a London special for the club, but we were inspired by the work of the Craft Beer Channel, who have spent the last two years drinking their way around the capital in search of the best pubs, bars, breweries and brewpubs...

Beer Club Box February 2018

We literally cannot contain our excitement, we are bouncing off walls and streaking in the Hackney Wick Streets. We have our own taproom, a beautiful renovated warehouse in the creative heart of East London. Not only is it a brilliant, relaxing pub with an insane 22 taps, it’s also a bottleshop...

Beer Club Box January 2018

If you thought 2017 was a good year in beer, it’s got nothing on 2018. While the established names in brewing took huge steps last year, we think the real excitement is going to come from a new wave of brewers coming up the ranks...

Beer Club Box December 2017

We all know the true meaning of Christmas – drinking beer by the fireside and trying to avoid playing boardgames. With that in mind we’ve put together an eclectic and exciting selection of festive brews...

Beer Club Box November 2017

The moment that craft beer stops moving, it starts going backwards. From adding experimental hops to British beers in California, to tipping stouts in whisky barrels, to throwing marshmallows in fermenters, craft beer is partly about pushing boundaries and seeing how far we can go...

Beer Club Box October 2017

We have to be honest: as a general rule, single-hop beers are nonsense. Practicality aside (it means using a lot of one variety), depth and complexity is best acheived by balancing all the different properties of a few individual hops. But some hops do just fine on their own, and others really sing...

Beer Club Box September 2017

We’re not usually ones for pitting beers against each other – we think most beers have their time and place – but we thought this was too interesting an idea to skip. For us, Belgium is still the greatest brewing nation on earth...

Beer Club Box August 2017

We must come clean, because it’s been weighing on our minds a lot recently. We don’t give enough focus to the breweries on the fringes of Britain. To blame their lack of distribution is only half the story – our job is to go out there and find these beers for you and we need to be better at it ...

Beer Club Box July 2017

Imagine going back in time five years and telling a load of craft beer nerds that the best beers will be in cans by 2017. They’d have looked at you like you just skulled a barleywine. Well now even they come in cans sometimes...

Beer Club Box June 2017

Name the best brewing nation in the world. Is it Belgium, with their rich history, unique styles and staunch traditions? Is it America, tearing up the rule book when the rest of the world had resigned themselves to it? Or the UK, clinging on desperately to its cask beer...

Beer Club Box May 2017

There are a lot of people who might try to tell you that haze is bad, that it’s a sign of badly brewed or kept beer. In some cases they’d be right – in particular it can be a sign of an unconditioned cask ale. But as craft beer hammers home its difference from macrobrewing...

Beer Club Box April 2017

It used to be that fruit beer was what you gave to someone who hated beer, in a final desperate bid to show them how diverse and exciting it can be. Because it may sound like a gimmick, but fruit beers have a rich history at the forefront of experimental brewing...
