BeerMeNow Craft Beer Subscription Box: Review

Website: www.beermenow.co.uk

I decided to put a pause on my Beer52 boxes, and jump over to try BeerMeNow.

I got talking to these guys on Instagram and it sounded like a good one to try, they gave me a little back story and some information on the beers and that night I subscribed.

A few days later a box arrived at my work and I had to open and take a quick peek.

Ok so this was a little different to Beer52, but I am not doing a comparison review so I will stop there.

I liked the handwritten envelope that put a smile on my face, the next thing I noticed was that each can and bottle was individually wrapped which I liked as it showed me they take care of what they deliver.

I also liked that some gifts were included like the beer mats, pen and a welcome/beer description letter.

The Beers…

Obviously, there are many beers so doing an individual review for each would be cray and mega long so I will tell you a quick overview.

The box contained a mix of different beers from UK breweries including; pale ales, browns, ambers, sours, bitters, stouts and porters.

It took me a while to get through the beers, but it was a great experience to my tastebuds and I learned a little about each brewery on the way.

I tried the Mad Squirrel beer first and wow a VERY good beer, I was off to a good start so I continued…well not all in the one night. If I saw this beer for sale here in Glasgow, I would definitely pick up a few cans.

My next favourite was from Calverleys Brewery the Porter, mmmm another really good beer that was very easy to drink.

And also in my top 3 beers was the Cocow Stout beer from Ampersand Brewery. This was sooo good and I loved the chocolate tones in this as I have a sweet tooth and anything chocolatey is a winner.

The above were my top 3 beers from this months subscription box, these are the ones that stood out for me and my taste buds. The other beers were also very good, and from other breweries, I had never heard of which I loved as its always good to try new things.

Overall :

Overall I enjoyed the service from BeerMeNow, I liked the attention to detail in wrapping the individual beers, the little handwritten envelope and the little gifts that came with it. These guys are also very social, and liked and commented on the photos I posted to Instagram or Twitter which is good as everyone likes companies that are very social.

It was great to try beers from breweries that are still unknown to me, and beers that might never be sold up here in Glasgow.

Guys if you like craft beer here is another subscription box that I would recommend, give them a go and see what you think.

Chat to me on here via the comments below, or on my Twitter or Instagram and let me know if you have tried BeerMeNow or have just joined and your thoughts. I want to hear from you so let’s have a wee chat 🙂

Can’t wait to try my second box 🙂

Cheers

Yeah, guys finally getting round to post this as have SOOOO many posts to well post….

Something I don’t do enough is meet up with other bloggers, and today I was meeting Emma (Emma Eats) and Wendy (Weekends with Wendy) for brunch at Singl-end in Glasgow.

I have never been here before which really shocked the girls, but I never visit this back street more the main one….so let’s see what I thought of it.

First thing this place is very cute inside, and if your a dog owner then this is a great place for you as its dog-friendly.

Since it was brunch I didn’t want to eat too much in case I went out for dinner later.

The Food…

Singl-end Smoothie : Sunshine on Glasgow £4.95

This was very thick but very nice, so I would just sip this from start to end of the brunch.

It was packed with great flavours that worked really well, and I would have it again when I visit next.

Croque Monsieur £8.25

WOW ok on arrived I never expected it to be this big!!! I knew I had a challenge ahead of me….and dinner might not happen later 🙂

This was AMAZING!!!! every mouthful was great, the flavours overall just perfect and the portion size was really good and excellent value for money.

I finished it all and felt full but not ready to explode full which is always good.

Overall

My first visit here won’t be my last, I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food.

I also liked that it was dog-friendly so this is a great help to anyone that owns a dog, as there are not many places that cater to this….well for now

Everyone inside today looked very relaxed, having a nice time with friends or family….and enjoying the food…even the dogs.

This is a new one on my list that I will aim to visit again.

Yeah back again after a while, and time to try something different to my normal.

The Food…

Salt & Chilli Chips £3.90

IMG_1181.jpg

So this was my favourite the past many many times I have visited here as it was packed with flavour, and much nicer than my local Chinese’s Salt and Chilli Chips.

hmm this was not that great, the flavour wasn’t the same and just so so.

Whatever has happened in the past few months, change of chef, ingredients this wasn’t a good change!!!! please change it back!

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 2.5

Duck Lettuce Wrap £5.50
Stir fried shredded duck with assorted minced vegetables

IMG_1178.jpg

Yup something very different for me, but it sounded nice.

First impressions were this was a nice idea of how to eat it, so time to dig in.

Yeah this was very nice, and I loved the flavour….my only issue was it only came with 4 lettuce leafs 1 or 2 more would have been perfect as you got a lot of shredded duck.

Overall today didn’t feel the same as it has in the past for me, the atmosphere was slightly lacking and the change to the chips!!

Hopefully, this is a small blip, as my previous experiences have always been good and so has the food.
