The craft beer scene has exploded recently with a lot of excellent beer available from smaller and larger breweries alike.
Companies have popped up offering subscription boxes for those of us who require a regular delivery of craft beers. These beer boxes are often a mix of craft ales as well as more regular main staples. Some specialise in certain regions or styles, while others offer a variety of beers regularly delivered.
So which is the beer subscription box and more importantly, offers the best value?
Boxes vary in style and price, so here I’ve broken them all down to the important bits and mark them on several key factors:
- Cost per bottle
- Level of customisation and choice
- How available the beers are (E.g. Can you just go to a supermarket instead?)
All prices are based on 1 month subscription for equal comparison. Some links below are referrals and will generate discounts / small commission
Flavourly is one of the most popular beer boxes currently out there, and it’s easy to see why.
Choose from light, mixed and dark styles of beer and have them delivered monthly along with a magazine.
The selection is good, with both big name craft brewers (Siren, Beavertown, Hiver) appearing alongside smaller, unknown breweries.
As is becoming fashionable, there’s even a craft Gin Club!
The biggest benefit of Flavourly is that you can customise your box quite accurately, and there’s even a taste profiler for if you’re unsure (or buying as a gift).
Excellent price, choice and value make this a winner!
There’s only one option – once per month.
You can pause or cancel at any time.
Most of the beers are sourced from both large and small craft breweries with a good variety each time of new and recognised names.
