Just ordered this after seeing an ad in yesterday's Metro (Midlands edition). Have to remember to cancel so it doesn't turn into a monthly subscription. Looks a decent selection. Cheers!

I can't see what the selection includes anywhere? Can you confirm or post the link to contents please?

Not sure why this is so cold. It works out £1.50 each for the beers in Tesco's current 4 for £6 deal. Yes, Tesco do have a pretty damn good craft selection.. but the high ABV double/triple's, etc are almost never included... I saw at least two 10% beers in that gif on Honest Brew...

Tesco have... An entry level craft beer selection. But that said, the images that they show on their website are certainly above tescos level. £1.50 a bottle for potentially £1.99 - £2.79 or so reasonable deal, bit still pot luck.

even once you cancel, these companies tend to nag you to get you back etc. I ordered from naked wines once and they kept badgering me. they all rely on repeat custom hence why the opening offer tends to be a loss leader

It's a mystery box, I reckon! But since it's a subscription service, they'll doubtless want to impress me with the first box in the (vain) hope I don't cancel before the second one.

Do some people reactively vote cold on alcohol deals?

Got one of these for my birthday and the beers were all excellent - no 'fillers' of which to speak.

I've since gone to Flavourly as they are much cheaper, but haven't been as impressed with the contents as I was with Honest Brew's.

It's beer. Beer must be cold

Not sure if I speak for the cold-voters, but to explain why I was thinking about voting cold (tho I haven't), £1.50 for nice beer seems like a mediocre deal to me (I like beer, tho I'm not by any means a connoisseur!) - and decent beers are often on offer for £1.50 or less at Asda/Morrisons.

To have to bother ordering it and then cancelling from a subscription is a pain, for what (to a novice) feels like a mediocre deal is a lot of faff, and hence not a hot deal...

Not voting cold as I don't know enough - just wanted to explain why it might have gone cold initially.

The vague delivery date puts me off. Don't want booze delivered to my workplace and I won't be home if delivered to my house

We're going to fill your box with Carling sylv xoxo HonestBrew

Good price.

£1.50 a bottle for some good beers that you can only find in beer shops etc is good value.

Voted hot!

Nooooo!

sylv runs off screaming into the woods, where the birds fly off in alarm; in a few moments, the sudden, eerie silence is broken by the barely audible keening sound of a broken-hearted sobbing.

If you like cider, check out orchardbox.
Craft ciders! So good!

Looks good. If there's a cloudwater beer in the box (trying to figure it out by the pics) then I'm in!

Just a note for those who think £1.50-5 for a beer is expensive. Yes compared to a Krononbourg it is, but these are nothing like many of the tasteless supermarket beers. (Granted you can get some decent ones in some of the supermarkets).

I recently tried a beer called Cuvée #5 from Brouwerij de Molen and it was blinking incredible. I think Honest Brew sell some by that particular brewer.

It's a shame you can't order the subscription and other beers in the same order though to save on postage.

You can also get 6 for £9 (if you know you will drink whatever you have in stock :D)

Entry level or not tesco's will all be 500ml bottles. In my experience with these boxes they're generally 330ml bottles or cans. So from a sheer quantity of booze point of view Tesco wins

If you're doing it for quantity then just get the 20 pack of Fosters cra.p. for £10

Also they claim.. "With 95% of the beers sold not available in supermarkets, this personalised and curated service offers you something unique."

Or vodka sure, I'm just bitter (boom boom) that they don't do decent sized bottles in these packs that's all (i say that having just finished a coke sized can from one that would have been greatly improved by having another 3rd of it to drink :)). Voted hot btw.

Quantity wouldn't be the goal of purchasing "craft", really

Flavourly are a similar thing, I've used them and they send some cracking craft beers. Use this link and Code for 50% off your 1st case, making it £10 for 10 craft beers, delivered! Cheaper than this deal and very very easy to cancel.
