Beer Me Now: My Craft Beer Subscription Box 2 Review

IMG_8765

WOOOHOO another delivery and finally I have finished all the beers, so its time for a short review of this box.

Firstly a big shout out for great service and online, BeerMeNow has always replied to my posts, tweets etc which I think is great as it shows they care by taking time to be social.

I won’t go into full detail like I have with my previous Beer Me Now Review, I will keep this short and sweet.

Just like last time I didn’t drink them in any particular order, to be honest, whatever was closest to grab that night next to me.

The beers were all nice in there own way, some I liked more than others some not so much as maybe too hoppy for me or too citrusy.

My top 3 beers from this months box are :

Its great finding new beer companies, and trying all the different beers. I did notice I liked the one from Mad Squirrel last time, so this is one brewery I will keeping a watch on.

Another one on my watch list is Tiny Rebel, that was an interesting beer.

Overall :

Like I said in my first review and in this one, the service is great, they are mega social which is a massive plus as that’s what people like to see these days.

The beers are a great mix, and I can’t wait for my third box.

Beer52 Craft Beer Subscription: Review

Website: www.Beer52.com

I have always enjoyed drinking a beer when I am out, though normally it would be a cocktail or rum.

Around mid last year, I started doing a Craft Beer tour in my home city Glasgow, where I take a group of people around 3 breweries and they get to try some craft beer.

Craft Beer? hmm I had heard of this term but I never really looked into it much or tried many or any craft beers. Due to me being the guide I started to look into it more, and wow it’s a massive area and growing every single day.

At each of these stops, I tried the breweries own Craft Beer, and more recently one off the menu just at random to see what other ones were like.

I use an app when I am out doing these tours, and also when I go out and have a craft beer called UnTapped. Its basically like Facebook but for beer checking in. It’s a great app to use, firstly it’s free and also if you tried a beer ages ago at a place and couldn’t remember what it was just open the app and have a look…plus many more features so take a look.

While using this app I got an offer for Beer52, they are a subscription service for Craft Beers. With a promo code, I got my first box for £6.95, that was 12 beers, snack and a magazine…I couldn’t say no to this and thought let’s try it. (NOTE you are auto-enrolled into a subscription and after that first payment it’s around £25 a month unless you change the option or cancel)

My first box arrived and I had many beers to try…

Sorry guys no photos of this one, but don’t worry I continued my subscription and got a second box.

To drink all the beers from my first box, it took me a while as I am now driving more so I can’t drink and drive…

Next Months Delivery…the beers magazine and snack arrived. I won’t go into detail about all the beers, but these ones were my favourites.

The above pic of the three craft beers were my top 3 from this months box, I have found I like a dark beer that has coffee or chocolate notes to it. This is strange as my normal pub beer is a light beer, so my taste is expanding and enjoying more.

The far left beer Ninkasi Blanche WOW this was a REALLY REALLY good beer!!!!! I will definitely be keeping an eye out for this one in the shops.

Overall

This is a good service and highly recommended, you can even have it every 2 months etc they will cater the subscription to your needs. The added magazine is a really great feature, as its a good read and you will learn more about beers etc.

What I have learned about my taste is, I like a dark sweet craft beer rather than a sour one but its good to try many styles.

Inside had a nice cool and funky atmosphere, people were chatting, eating and also playing tabletop games which is very cool.

The Food…

This sounded really nice, and looked ok when it arrived so it was time to taste.

Hmmm not as nice as it sounded.

This needed a lot!!!! more chipotle mayo and chorizo as the flavour was just there and no more….

Little dissapointed as it sounded really good.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 2.5

Beer…

Very Big Moose £9.99

OH! MY! GOD!!! this is my favourite beer ever!!!! it’s 12% and tastes like chocolate and very smooth…..

Yeah, its a little costly but so so so good.

Overall

Overall it was a mixed visit, the burger was just ok….will try a different one next time but the beer WOW this made my day and visit.

The beer was the best!!! cant wait to have this again!!
