The Craft Beer Box
This is our signature box, our continuing rampage through the best and the brightest of independent UK brewing culture. Each week sees a new brewery commandeer our cardboard and showcase their beer. From the breweries you know and love to those you don’t yet know you love, every week we select something different for you to look forward to.
What’s in the box?
The DeskBeers box is designed to be shared. Each box contains 12 beers made up of 2 or 3 styles of beer (sometimes four) from a single brewery (but sometimes more). We try a pick "crowd-pleasers" - great craft beers that are interesting but not too off the wall. Usually we send out bottles, but sometimes we send out cans. We always send you the best beer possible.
We buy beer from around the country every week. Here are two boxes we're particularly excited about shipping to customers at the moment.
Notting Hill Pale (4.5%)
Hops and pale malts in perfect harmony characterise this UK craft classic. Floral notes and citrus flavours are front and centre. This brew packs a lot in at a very sessionable ABV.
Ruby Rye (5.2%)
A full bodied ruby hued, bittersweet ale with a thin cream head, aromas of toffee, dark chocolate and tobacco with an earthy lightly spiced toffee and caramel flavour. An obvious go-to beer when you want a break from hop bitterness but need a beer lighter than a stout.
Notting Hill Blonde (4.2%)
A Blonde Ale in the European style. Beautifully hopped giving a fruity, almost spicy taste with a delicate floral nose. A perfect end to a hard day.
Ranger is a 4.2% Pale Ale made from the best quality malts and batch-selected hops. It’s a clean, balanced, and zesty beer with piney, citrus and stone-fruit notes. Goes well with open space and hearty meals.
Bandit is a 3.8% Gluten Free Pale Ale. They took their beloved Beatnik and stole the gluten out. It’s a light, refreshing pale. Still fruity, still floral. Loads of flavour, just gluten free. Goes well with high revs and breeze in your hair.
Ah, Hepcat - the original Hipster. Back in the 1940s, if you were a right-on, jazz listening, cool cat, you were a Hepcat. This session IPA is low in ABV and real easy going, man. Still packing in the flavour, the quartet of Mosaic, Citra, Equinox and Motueka hops deliver a free-form flavour experience.
Hunter is an uncompromised 4.8% Helles lager with all premium malts, all noble hops. Conditioned for 40 days. Unfiltered. Light bitterness, spicy, bready and moreish. Goes well with swells and big breaks.
