Age Restriction

In accordance with the Licensing Act 2003, it is an offence for any person under 18 to buy or attempt to buy intoxicating drinks. We will only sell to anyone who is 18 years of age or over, as the law requires. By placing an order you are confirming that you are 18 or over. If you are making a purchase as a gift, then the recipient must also be over 18 years old.


Best of British Beer aim to ship all orders within 2 days of receipt of order. All our parcels are shipping on a next working day service but unfortunately this cannot be gauranteed because as much as we'd love to deliver every box of beer ourselves, once our parcels leave our warehouse they are in the hands of our couriers so delivery times are generally within 48 hours, but please allow up to 3-4 days during busier times. If you require your order in a shorter time frame, please use our 'Express Delivery' facility.

If you receive regular monthly subscriptions, they will be sent out at the same time every month.

Delivery Charges

Mainland UK delivery charges are £5.95 for a case, and FREE delivery for 2 or more cases, providing these are delivered to the same address at the same time.

All deliveries are handled by one of our preferred couriers who will send you an email when your shipping has been booked. The email will have a 2 hour time slot. 

Our couriers will try to deliver your beer twice and if possible will leave safely or with a neighbour. If this hasn't been possible, it will be held at the depot for 2 days and then returned to us. 

IMPORTANT: If this happens, we will cancel the order and refund you the cost of your purchase minus the cost of the delivery. If it is a free delivery item, we will charge £6 to cover the cost of the delivery. 

If an item has been returned and you would like the item to be sent again, we may charge an additional delivery charge. 

The cost for express delivery is £8.95 and is only applicable for the next working day e.g. order Friday for the following Monday. Our shippers do not normally receive or deliver parcels over the weekend or Bank Holidays, although Saturday morning deliveries can be made by special arrangement for an additional fee.

For all addresses outside mainland UK your delivery price may incurr extra charges, this is because the couriers have siignificant surcharges for these areas, but please call us or drop us an email by clicking here if these are showing quite expensive, we may be able to get a quote with another courier which may be cheaper.

Sadly since the UK's exit from the EU we can no longer ship to Europe.
