Beer Shops


Recommended Posts

Feel like trying some new beers or IPA's. Can anyone recommend an online shop that has a good range and decent prices?

 

Seen beerhawk mentioned before but have tried a fair few in the packs they do

Used to get adverts through the door for them but never thought to try. Might give them a bash

Cornelius at the top of Easter Road do deliveries and always had a good selection of different beers when I lived near it.

No longer in EH but I might pop by when I'm next in the city and have a look. Cheers

Im just looking to try new beers and seen a few places doing boxes of 12 or so different beers to try

seem to do a lot of Facebook advertising. I got a mixed case of things I'd never buy for myself just to test them. Didn't keep any record of what I liked or didn't so might have to try 'em again next time they do a cheapo offer.

 

Some of it was fine - some a bit fruity for my taste in beer.

Aye I know the sort of thing you mean.

 

If you are ever near Dalkeith then eskbank trading have a cracking variety of mostly Scottish/UK beers.

 

Crossborders are my fav though. In normal times they open up the tap room at weekends 

 

Obviously its all their own but there's a good variety. I personally like 'wee braw'.

Looks good. Cheers for the heads up

Beer 52 is alright. It'll certainly broaden your palette and give you a totally different outlook on just how many different beers are out there. But after a year, I got bored, and haven't found myself hunting down any of the beers I tried at all tbh. Bit of fun, but the novelty wore off for me.

 

Beer Hawk is definitely a decent website. Also The Fine Wine company take online orders and have a great wee range of beers.

One more...

 

https://www.cairngormbrewery.com/

 

I prefer Cairngorm to Skye brewery. I didn't suggest it initially as my local Morrisons do stock it, so wasn't sure it was different enough for what you were looking for.

 

Nice beer though. Entire range only £1.99 a bottle and can mix and match.

Never tried any of the beers but a mate works at Windswept in Lossiemouth, so I thought I'd mention the name. They post out beer.

Beer Zoo in Portobello and Beer Cave on Dalry Road both deliver locally.

 

Pilot a brewery in Leith have an online shop and deliver across UK. They do a lot of decent beers and you can get mixed cases of their stuff. There's loads of brewers in and around Edinburgh just now.

I ordered some beers from Tiny Rebel the other night and they arrived this morning. Looking forward to trying them out.

 

https://www.tinyrebel.co.uk/

 

Had a few different ones in recent Beer 52 boxes and quite liked them. My mate absolutely loves their stuff so he added an extra one to his last order for me to try. The flavours are certainly a bit different but I wouldn't have even thought about ordering some of their stuff six months ago.

Jeez 8 weeks, hope you're better.

I sat in the pub waiting on a food order a few weeks back. Almost felt like greeting given how much I wanted a pint.

Beer52 are arseholes with terrible customer service. Most of Flavourly's stuff is their own brand and not great.

 

Would definitely stick with Beer Hawk, some of their European lager case deals are tremendous.

Beers of Europe is one off if not the best in the UK, prices are good, have thousands of beers from all over the World, loyality points scheme meaning you get money off your selection, free delivery on orders over £60 and the best of all you choose the beers you want, unlike some others namely Beer52 where they send you any old crap and charge you a fortune for the shite.

The ones I've had so far I've enjoyed so thought I'd give some more of their stuff a try. I only ordered 6 cans which came to about £15 or something.

Good site this, have made a few orders from here. Got a beers of the world scratch chart for Christmas 2019 and this site has proved useful in trying to source a few of them.  Availability can be very limited though.

I tried Flavourly when they had an offer of 24 cans for £30. Most were pretty good. Currently doing Beer52 but starting to find them a bit samey. My first box from them contained a peanut butter stout. Gave me the boak

The Wee Braw is brilliant. They have got a great selection, I might get a couple of growlers for the Dundee game.

Crossborders do a pilsner quite regularly.

 

Edit: 5 litre keg available https://shop.crossborders.beer/mini-kegs/pilsner-5-litres

Over the last year availability has been limited this is true, I think it is simply down to lockdowns, folks buying up lots of beer as the pubs are shut, even some of the breweries stopped production for a while.

Disgusting company.

 

Took my money and sent me a completely different box of 'beer' from the one I'd ordered, then hid behind their T's & C's when I complained, saying that they have the right to substitute beers if they are no longer available, yes that's right but surely a decent company would tell you if the box you had ordered wasn't available instead of just sending out a completely different 12 case without telling you.

 

'Beer' the case they sent was nothing more than fecking alcopops, absolute fecking rubbish.

 

Will never ever get anything from Beer52 ever again.

Beer 52 have been good in my experience. Boxes delivered regularly and the content is always what is expected.

 

A friend of my mate's girlfriend works for them and says the best way to contact them is always via email. Particularly if wanting to cancel a subscription.

 

I'll probably cancel once life is back to normal but I've certainly enjoyed the majority of the beers I've tried from them.

Beer Zoo have some great beers and have used them a bit. Didn’t know Beer Cave delivered tho - will get on that! Beer Hawk and Beer52 are both decent and use them fairly regularly.

Not to rub it in (as my mate tells me by the time he ordered it was sold out)

 

But crossborders have excelled themselves with the coffee beer they just released. I love coffee as a flavour and it really comes through. Beautiful stuff.

 

Got a growler of pilsner left but that'll probably be gone by tonight
