You won the pools Bevis?
I know what you mean
I go out beer hunting not only to find different bottled beers but also to sniff out bargains (& Madness)
What can I say
I wasn't expecting a tax rebate so it was money I didn't know I would have
I am showing some commitment to the cause of the true brew.
The Rokporter is lovely. Don't expect much from the Big Swell though, they stopped making it a few months ago I think, so god knows how old the ones hanging about in the UK are (I had one the other week, very malty unfortunately)..
The Big Swell just seemed something completely different and a last chance to give it a go.
Yeah, it's still pretty decent though Plus it's awesome having canned beer that isn't supermarket stuff
Jesus. You bought their entire stock!
PS - Big Swell is pretty swell (as long as it's still hoppy).
No messing there bevis
good luck to your liver mate
I am surprised I haven't been challenged over no Brewdog in my order by a certain johnny come lately
I cannot fault BoE's service
Faultless in fact
despite an new ice age and a weekend in the way my beer was here in within four days
my only slight niggle, no Kernel, No Magic Rock, No Three Floyds/Zombie dust, no Founders and nothing with bacon
otherwise incredibly happy
If you want English craft beer you'd be best off with beer merchants
Beer-Ritz is better for English beer.
If you want the best of English beer then go to the pub.
True, though it depends what your local bottle shops have. I tend to favor Beer Merchants as Beer-Ritz has pretty much the same as Discount Supermarket and the Bottle Shop in Cardiff. Arbor, Brew Star, BBF, Buxton, Coniston, Hardknott, Hawkshead, Dark Star, Ilkley, Kelham Island, Kernel, Magic Rock, Mallinsons, Moor, Moorhouses, Naylors, Oakham, RCH, Red Willow, Revolutions, Ridgeway, Rudgate, Saltaire, Sam Smith, St. Austell, Thornbridge, Timothy Taylor... Though admittedly upon closer inspection, a smaller number from each brewery (never seen Thornbridge Thorny Goat before).
Okay Rob I see what you mean when you say about Beer-Ritz supplying Discount Supermarket.
I'm surprised you buy anything online.
Need to get my German fix somewhere! Discount Supermarket also has a very average foreign section (loads of foreign lagers, lots of the usual German and Belgian beers, and an okay amount of US beers, mostly old pale ales e.g. they still have a fair bit of Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest, and Maui Big Swell)
Plus for some of those it's literally a single beer from that brewery.
I presume you saw that Beers of Europe now has a respectable number of Ayinger beers for sale? I need to buy some of the Helles.
I didn't until now. You should get a winterbock and a celebrator and compare them. Some people say they're exactly the same beer.
Am I the only one who still finds the new BoE website irritiating to navigate?
Nope -- it's atrocious.
I know what you mean. It feels like no effort goes into it. Just a massive list of beers and there you go, do the sorting thing.
Could be worse though.
just beware with BoE that you make sure a beer isn't showing as .000000 quantities when you go to check out
because it is sold out and on chrome takes the payment and cannot process payment.
BoE where V good and made sure IO got the unwanted payment back.
The site is a bit of an arsehole though.
Been taking a look on other websites in case I get another unexpected financial boon and
see what else is available
As a real ale fan I love that Ales by Mail you not select to view only the bottle conditioned offering
but as a real person I don't like the fact that it doesn't actually work
I suppose. It could give you a virus.
I went on one site once and it gave me the finger.
I went on the site once and it fingered me.
I actually worked out a good system for working out beer availability on BOE-
Q- Is this a beer you want to buy?
A- If 'yes' then this beer is not available
I went on a site once and someone was fingering MOVING SWIFTLY ON
I saw it on-stage once. Something like this.
I really don't like that you can't see a full list of new items in stock anymore. Now you're limited to only seeing the 6 most recent items on the front page.
You think it'd be a no-brainer to try and tempt your customers with new items...
You'd think, wouldn't you?
Pretty sure I mentioned this to the BoE representative on this very thread. They were meant to be sorting it but still nothing has been done.
I used to check the new stock every month, now I rarely visit.
Has anyone heard of/bought from Beer City before?
I keep seeing their ads on Facebook - they appear to be a Belgium-based webshop. Their range isn't huge but looks like they've got some decent stuff at good prices. Perhaps they will expand over time.
Amusingly, the section that says Reste Europe doesn't contain any european brews.....
Well am reasonably happy with the costs considering its the only way to try some of the more unusual beers out..plus i love the paypal option too!
The tick the box selection idea is a bit of a pain having to wait fro the page to re-load before you can hoose another option or to combine options..
other than that its ok...it just doesn't look very professional. But am certainly not going to let that put me off using it!
I love- LOVE the site's renaming of Brewdog's Libertine Black Ale.
Am I missing something?
on the site they call it 'sexy black ale'
Heh - OK. They must've edited it because I can't see that anywhere. Quite funny though.....
holy crap- they must've changed it! i definitely saw it though- they must've changed it!
Mental Freudian slip? Maybe you really love black ales?
Obviously a secret Brewdog fetishist
