One of the perks from being at the European Beer Bloggers conference recently was that attendees were able to claim a free box of beer from www.beer52.com
Now, Beer52 is a company based in the UK and the premise is rather simple. In exchange for a subscription of £24 they will ship you 8 beers, along with a colour guide for each beer, this months subscribers also got some tortillas but that doesn’t happen all the time. They use only small brewers, which makes the offerings quite unique.
I was wondering if they offered shipping direct to ROI, which at this time, they currently don’t, however there is a way to do it. It worked for me perfectly, but I think one or two people were getting their orders cancelled. Basically to get them shipped to you here you will need to use www.parcelmotel.com as the shipping address. Yes it will add €4 to your costs, but you’re more than likely going to get beers that will not be available here.
I’ve checked with Siobhan in Beer52 and they are happy for Irish customers to use Parcel Motel for shipping until they get sorted out.
Naturally too my UK based readers can join up and not fuss around with Parcel Motel or the like, the code is good for you too.
As an added bonus, readers of my blog will also get £10 off their first order, to avail of this just use the code BEERSNOB10 when placing your order.
Now as to the package itself, there are 7 beers in the 8 there i’ve not had before and I look forward to trying them each individually. There is a great booklet which gives info on the beers and breweries. I was very impressed with it. The package was well packaged with no breakages to worry about.
