Our delivery service & shipping costs

At the brewery, we want to ensure you get the best quality, freshest beer possible.

We currently only ship to the UK Mainland.

We charge £4.95 Flat Rate to anywhere UK Mainland for all orders under 24 cans. For 24 cans or more we currently offer free shipping. On occasion, we may adjust our shipping policy as a special offer to customers.

We currently offer next day delivery for orders placed before 12pm*

*on occasion orders can be delayed and take longer than expected. Currently, due to COVID-19 the courier system is under a lot of pressure. We are working closely with them each day to ensure limited hold-ups to your deliveries. Thank you for your patience in advance.

Our Process:

We work hard to ensure round the clock cold storage for our beers. It’s chilled in tank and once packaged, it goes straight into our custom built cold store. This is where your beer lives until it’s sent directly to you. Cold storage is key to ensure a higher quality product.

We have partnered up with UKmail, whose deliveries are completed by DHL. We are constantly looking at their processes to ensure the best delivery service possible.

We prepare and dispatch orders daily Monday to Friday. Ordering closes at 12pm on those days, any orders after 12pm will be reallocated to the next working day.

We aim to have your order with you within one working day of you placing your order. On occasion there may be issues/delays, but we will make sure to limit these where possible and contact you to let you know.

When you order:

Once you have confirmed your order and have paid, you will receive a confirmation email. Once we have processed your order for shipping, you will receive confirmation alongside a tracking number.

If for any reason the order cannot be delivered on the first day, DHL will try again. If the delivery cannot be made at all, DHL will return the order to us, where we will either refund the order or arrange for delivery. In this situation we may have to charge you for delivery a second time.
