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.
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 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 🙂
