Who knows as I'm going back to the early 90's. Tartan Ale was another good one😁

Has anyone on this forum signed up to one of those beer box subscription services?  Are they any good?

Similar to Tans, except mine wasn't free but 24 beers (8 different ones), a snack and a glass and was 18.99 (very reasonable I thought at 79p a beer) with free p&p. Several were alright, two types were really nice and one was a bit meh. Considering that 21 of them were alright or better, I'd say it was worth a punt.

Came with some magazine which obviously the micro brewing companies had likely funded. Yeah worth a bash.

We had both a Flavourly and beer52 delivery during lock down, things got desperate couldn't get a supermarket delivery fir two weeks it was the only way.

Both were v cheap via deals, would probably go for flavourly for a one off again as you get 2 of each beer which was good as myself and the missus were sharing.

Long and short is she has bought me a beer52 subscription as a birthday gift, came home from holiday yesterday to a crate of Dutch, which was nice.

I had a BeerBods subscription for 6 months, made me drink lots of nice beers (one a week) that I wouldn't normally have. They have a podcast tasting session every week as well

Have had Flavourly before and they do seem to mix them up regularly too. Which is nice.

RE: Beer52 have you happened to receive any Bull house Brewery beers in there? I've mentioned them before; it's my cousins fella (husband to be) and they got a contract to provide a batch via Beer52.

I had a free delivery from Beer52 just before Christmas and followed it up with a few special offer deliveries earlier this year. There were some good beers in there, but there were always a couple of dodgy ones, usually some sort of fruity sour beer which I really struggled with. Fine for a one-off, a bit like going to a beer festival where you try things you wouldn't normally, but I dont want that every week, especially when the special offers start to run out and it gets a bit more expensive

Tip from a mate,

When Flavourly send you emails with offers, leave it a few days and then try to order the offer, they have normally sold out by then and if so will offer you a voucher as an apology for your being unable to order?

Don't join Beer52. They're a fucking nightmare to cancel.

Found this thread languishing on page 14 of the general discussions, behind even the Bamboo's bollocks... and dishwasher help topics.

Shocking state of affairs.
Anyway, absolute pleasure to be back at the GBBF this evening and tomorrow after a 3 year absence.
