We close at 3pm on Wednesday 20th December and all standard & express deliveries received up to 12pm on that day will have been shipped.

We close on the 20th as we can't ship on the 21st and guarantee to get it there in time for Christmas... and we all really need a sit down and a beer!

We reopen on the 27th & 28th December to get deliveries out in time for New Year. 

Normal service is resumed on 2nd January 2018.

Delivery Costs and Times

 Shipping Timescales

We ship 99% of orders on an overnight service within 3 working days and items are sent using APC, UKMail or Parcelforce. If you require your beer sooner, we offer an Express service as long as you order by 3pm* 

99% of Express Deliveries are shipped same day and will arrive on the next working day. 

If you order on a Monday on standard delivery, you are highly likely to receive the beer on Wednesday or Thursday at the latest. If you have selected an Express Service before 3pm it will in the vast majority of orders arrive on the Tuesday. 

Delaying Shipping: We are sometimes asked to delay an order and have it arrive closer to a particular date or occasion. To achieve this we hold the order back and process it the day before you have asked for it to be delivered. This ensures you always get the freshest stock. To achieve the accuracy on the date we need to send it on an overnight service so we make a small admin charge of £1.50 to cover this.

All our beers are delivered in Best of British Beer branded boxes. The only exception to this is if you have ordered a full case of beer from a brewery and we feel their packaging is strong enough to make the journey. If you would like a plain box, please say so in the delivery instructions at the checkout. A hand written gift note can also be added at no extra cost.
