Yes, thanks. I did actually put that info in they description box when I posted the deal but someone took it off, however I have re put it back.

Was just about to post the same thing jonesy.

So is it actually a good deal if you remember to cancel any subscription thru give you?

I ordered one, it says in the faq's on the Beer 52 site that you can cancel anytime once they've emailed you a link yo their billing portal. They do the same trial for £9.99 inc p&p, so not much of a saving through Groupon.

They did a similar offer a month or so back.
It was a bit of a faff to sort out the cancellation to stop getting robbed on a monthly basis.
To be honest it was overpriced for a few very small bottles of beer, an ebook download, a postage stamp sized pack of olives and an A3 sized poster of the 'flavour wheel'. This is probably worth about £4 or £5 maximum. You would be far better getting 4 x 500ml real ales for £6 in bigger bottles in one of the big supermarkets (=3 times as much beer! for less money)

Tried cancelling after the taster box, through their difficult portal, thought I'd succeeded only to be billed for this month.
Note you have to pay return postage if you don't want the product, very confusing.
Not happy, so have email them today, waiting to see if I get a respones

I have emailed them and heard heehaw in return. Also not had any details of billing portal meaning I can't cancel. 2 bootlegs of beer and a couple of olives then locked in to buy more at £3 a bottle makes this look like a scam to me

Beer52 is a **** scam. It's almost impossible to contact them, and there's no easy way to cancel the subscription. I've been trying to stop the delivery for some time now and have not managed

I think they are extremely incompetent at best and a scam at worst. Bought a groupon voucher and almost a month later still trying to redeem the voucher with no response from Beer52 and no help from Groupon. This isn't the first time Groupon have been in trouble and I can't see this ending on a happy note.

Don't know if Beer52 is a scam but they are, at best, incompetent. My children bought me a voucher but the code is "invalid". They fail to reply to emails and have no published phone number. I feel a call is due to Trading Standards......

Been on the phone now for 32 mins and 19 seconds and still I'm only caller number 3 waiting to speak to a representative! Seriously gonna go mad soon listening to this annoying background music. Stay away from beer52 they are a rubbish company and obviously don't the meaning of good customer service or have any customer service skills at all. I want to CANCLE this rubbish monthly subscription that's taken my money this month. I already emailed to cancelled and they replayed to say they have cancelled my subscription but still I'm being charged, wtf is going on. I want answers and I'm not hanging the phone up until I get a full refund and I'm paying no return delivery. How can they run a company like this when they can't even keep customers happy! It's a joke!

BEER 52 Total scam, they get your details then don't email you back and phone number they sent doesn't work! Don't be fooled they are scammers!! BEWARE!!

Sadly I was also scammed by this company. In taking up the Beer52 Groupon offer we were automatically signing a Continuous Payment Order, for which you have to give the bank 1 month's notice to cancel. This means of course, that by the time you pay the first £6 for the introductory offer, you are already committed to paying a further £24 for the next month.

The customer service numbers are either unobtainable, refer you to email customer support or result in a never-ending queue. They also replied to very few emails. I had 2 responses. The first was in response to me asking to cancel my order. The reply was "sad to see you go" and was ambiguous about whether the order was actually cancelled - it wasn't. The second was equally meaningless, offering to send a returns ticket when I received the beer.

Of course no returns ticket arrived and they didn't reply to the multiple emails I sent asking for it. It seems that these were just delaying tactics in order to drag me into a further month's payment. There is also no way of cancelling an order on their website, only suspending it for a month.

The produce is IMO very over-priced even the introductory offer is of only marginal value. Avoid at all costs.

There is a new Beer52 offer that has just come up on todays GroupOn email.
I was about to buy it till I read this thread. I notice how they also don't state the bottle size so I guess it's not 500ml quantity.

RIDICULOUS!! bought for 8.99 off group for a crate, to not be told i have to sign up to a 24quid monthly subscription. still waiting for my delivery as was smashed in transit and took them a further week to send out another crate. which i still havent received. to then see 24quid had been taken out of my account because they classed the replacement crate as a new purchase!! rang up to speak to the most ridiculous "customer service" woman. ever. she sounded like she was asleep all the time and didnt have a clue what i was on about. i complained a lot to finally get a refund for a crate 3 weeks later i still havent received. poor customer service. never use. absolute waste of time.
