Flavourly craft beer club review and reader offer

I had never tried a craft-beer subscription service until Flavourly.com came into my life. In return for a fee (more about this in a moment as I have a reader offer for you) you will receive eight beers a month, plus a few extras like nibbles.

Where Flavourly is particularly clever, however, is that you can log on to your account online and rate the beers you receive. The Flavourly guys will match your data with the beer they have in stock with the aim of providing you with beers that you will like.

Before I go any further, what is a craft beer? This is one of those awkward terms that has no official definition. It means different things to different people but most beer aficionados would agree that a craft beer must come from a small brewery using traditional brewing methods.

Black IPA from Stewart Brewing. A vrey distinctive beer.

Now for a declaration of interest; I am a member of the Campaign for Real Ale and have been for years. As far as I’m concerned it is sexy to be discerning about beer (and I can be just as fussy about wine, much to the irritation of my wife).

Anyway, when this box arrived it was the cause of much excitement. I’ve shot some video showing what was in the box. Click on the image below to watch it.

In the carton were the following ales;

  • 19th Brew Golden Ale from the Eden Mill brewery
  • Marmalade on Rye from the Tempest brewery
  • Black IPA from Stewart Brewing
  • Seven IPA from Seven Bro7hers
  • Rose Wheat Beer produced by Ticketybrew
  • Amber Ale by Fourpure
  • The Brown Honey Ale from Hiver and
  • Black Saison brewed by Firebrand.

I’m not going to review every ale or this post will become incredibly long. I think my top three, however, were; Rose Wheat Beer, 19th Brew Golden Ale and Amber Ale. The last one was a particular surprise as this was a tinned beer and I don’t, as a rule, drink tinned beers.

The Brown Honey Ale from Hiver. Unlike any honey ale I’d drunk in the past. A really nice beer.

It’s clear the beers have been chosen with incredible care. Each one is very distinctive and this particular selection represented a good geographical spread of breweries based in Scotland, Northern England, South East England and the West Country. Although a beer lover, most of the beers came from breweries I wasn’t familiar with so the Flavourly team, which once appeared on Dragons Den, has obviously done its research.

In terms of cost, it’s usually £20 plus £4 postage and packaging. As mentioned above, readers of Dadbloguk get a special reader offer. When signing up, use the code DAD12 and you will receive £12 off the price of the first box. I hope you’ll agree that is a pretty good deal.

You can find out more information and register at Flavourly.com. You’ll also find Flavourly on twitter (@flavourly), Facebook (/Flavourly), Pinterest (/Flavourly) and Instagram (Flavourlyhq).

Disclosure: I was provided with a sample box of ales for review purposes. Thoughts and opinions are my own.

  1. Thanks for writing this John. I knew tasting clubs existed for chocolate and other things, but not heard of it for beer.
    I am not a keen beer person self…….but I have 4 brothers and a father, and birthdays and Christmas can be hell sometimes trying to find good presents so I am going to look in to this a bit more.
    Thanks again,
    Sarah x

    1. Ah, yes, this would make an excellent gift. Flavourly does a range of subscription boxes including foods etc so take a look, something may well appeal.

  2. That would make the ideal pressie for Hubby. He takes beer more seriously than wine or Champagne, much to my puzzlement. He used to walk around with a small notebook on which he’s take notes about the beers he drank (honestly!).
