Independent brewing is all the rage right now — and boy, is London a great city to call home if you're a beer aficionado. The capital's thriving craft beer scene has seen corporate beverages get the boot in favour of the locally-brewed stuff, and we're spoilt for choice when it comes to finding great tipple. If you're getting tired of trawling pubs and breweries for your craft beer fix though, fear not: HonestBrew can deliver the best of London's craft beer scene to the comfort of your own home.
Actually, scratch that... they can deliver the best craft beer from the world over. Oh yes, all your local favourites are there, but the good people at HonestBrew have scouted out all the best brews from independent craft breweries all around the world — and you can trust these guys to get it right, because they've rigorously taste tested each and every one of them (what a job, eh?).
There's quite the selection to choose from, and those who know their IPA from their ABV will love putting together a custom selection of beers — a sort of adult pick 'n' mix, if you will, except instead of sweets, there's beer (and lots of it). The bottle shop features more than 500 varieties of the stuff, so it's safe to say that even the keenest of craft beer drinkers will find something to treat their tastebuds.
If you're a little less clued up though, or maybe just looking for a bit of inspiration, there are plenty of curated mega-mixed cases packed with delicious brews, too. There's something for every occasion: thank you beers, birthday beers, date night beers, winter beers... any excuse will do, right? Our favourite though, has to be the so-called 'Howler' — a portable, giftable tube that comes with three craft beer cans hiding inside.
The 'Secret Santa' edition features three courses of Christmas craft beer to pair with your meal: a sessionable pale to start the entree; a delicious Japanese inspired beer to match the main, and a mocha porter to finish. Now we're not saying it's the perfect Christmas present, but we certainly wouldn't mind Santa delivering us one of those this year...
And because we know Londonist readers would love a bit of craft beer action too, we've got a little gift of our own to give you. You can get £10 off craft beer Christmas cases from HonestBrew with code LONDONIST, and have yourself a very merry Christmas indeed. We'll raise a glass to that.
