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

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.

Check them out at www.beer52.com

Cheers
