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.
A great introduction to the world of Belgian Pale Ales. This beer tastes of citrus fruits with a hint of pepper shining through. These flavours combined with the relatively low ABV make this a perfect session beer.
Ivo Watts-Russel founded a label called 4AD. They went on to sign acts from Pixies to Bon Iver. They also inspired one young chap that would grow up obsessed with music, but also German beer. Ivo is a fine tribute to these influences.
Named for the daughter of the city from which this Kölsch style of beer takes its name (Cologne). There is nothing underground about this crisp, light and fragrant beer.
Dead Wax (5.5%)
Dead Wax is Orbit's homage to the traditional London Porter. Malty and rich, with a hearty blend of aromas including burnt sugar, bonfire toffee and dark chocolate, and swirling with bitter flavours from Challenger, Savjinski Golding and Bobek hops. Fermented with Nottingham Ale yeast, this porter is at once a careful tribute to this quintessential London brew style and an assertive, modern craft beer.
Brewed to show off the hops grown north of the equator, this is a big, floral, citrus fruit explosion of flavour. It's so good it's in Ratebeer's top 10 Golden Ales, too!
Brewed originally as a one off for the inaugural We Are Lager Festival in Manchester, Moor rapidly fell in love with the slightly hop forward crushable 4% lager. A very traditional lager brewed in homage to Franconia.
A "hoppy wheat beer" that draws influences from around the globe. US hops meet a typically German style of beer brewed with a very British sense of drinkability. The wheat makes this a really crisp, refreshing brew.
All Dayer (3.5%)
It's exactly what it says on the can, a great beer to have all day without compromising on flavour. Notes of orange peel with a light body and a clean finish. Yayer for All Dayer.
