Keep your fridge stocked
with craft beers you love

Send Me Beers

HOW IT WORKS

We send you a different selection of craft beers each month. By sourcing from only the best independent brewers and sorting them into different flavour profiles we make sure your fridge is always stocked with beers you really want to drink.

1. PICK A STYLE

You pick which of our selections matches your taste in beer

See our styles

2. CHOOSE HOW MANY

Decide if you want 8, 12 or 20 beers in your delivery

3. GET YOUR BEERS

We deliver the beers to you monthly, so you can just sit back and relax

WHAT'S IN EACH BOX?

Each case comes with four different beers. We'll always send you at least two cans of each beer - it's more sociable allowing you to share one with a friend; it also makes common sense, because when we send you such great beers you'll very likely want to drink more than one of them.

LIGHT & CRISP

3 x Different Lagers
1 x Light Pale Ale

Lager is by far the most popular type of beer in the world but too often ignored by the craft beer world. Well, not here at Beacon & Buck. Each month we send you a new pack of beers featuring 3 different lagers all designed to offer something a bit different so they compliment each other beautifully. And then we round off the selection with a light pale ale for when you want something with a bit more hop character.

Once you are up and running you will love that feeling of knowing there’s something cold, fizzy and delicious ready and waiting for you every single time you open the fridge

8 packs contain 2 of each beer, 12 packs 3 of each, 20 packs 5 of each. All beers come in 330ml cans.

FRESH & EASY

2 x Lagers
2 x Pale Ales/IPAs

Our beer subscription service is designed to make sure you always have cold, delicious craft beers – that you actually want to drink! – at home. No more weird experimental brews hanging round at the back of the fridge for months on end. And no more buying a few nice craft cans then topping up with Stella.

The Fresh and Easy delivers a mix of lagers and pale ales that are always freshly brewed, great tasting and easy to drink. And always sourced from brilliant, independent British breweries. So you’ll always find a beer waiting for you that you are excited about cracking open. And with the big box coming in at under £2 a can so can kiss those disappointing mass-produced multi-packs from the supermarket goodbye 😘.

8 packs contain 2 of each beer, 12 packs 3 of each, 20 packs 5 of each. All beers come in 330ml cans.

BIG & JUICY

4 x IPAs/Pale Ales

If you love big, bold modern craft beers this is the case for you. You’ll get a collection of pale ales and IPAs spanning a range of different styles and strengths to make sure there’s always a beer waiting in your fridge that matches the mood you are in.

So you can expect some classic west coast style IPAs that are clear, piney and deliver a pleasing bitterness. And some hazy, juicy east coast style brews that dial back the bitterness and amp up the tropical fruit flavours. Not to mention session IPAs, more classic English pale ales etc.etc.

And all the while we put together the boxes so the ABVs span from around 4% up to 6% or higher so that whether you’re after a quick midweek tipple or something bit bigger at the weekend, we’ve got you covered.

8 packs contain 2 of each beer, 12 packs 3 of each, 20 packs 5 of each. All beers come in 330ml cans.
