Interesting beers, but you've really got to want interesting beers
4 January 2019
Call me a skinflint, but I think that £38 for a dozen bottles of beer is quite pricey. Some of the bottles aren't even very large. A 12-pack of Bud is £8.40 at my local Tesco, and I get loyalty points :)
Of course, these beers are more of a specialist taste than Bud -- you wouldn't buy this if you just wanted a dozen bottles of generic beer. You've got to be a beer connoisseur, with an interest in trying beers that you won't usually find in the local (British) bar or off-licence. To that extent it succeeds pretty well, and some of the beers are real treats. If you do find something you like, you might struggle to find more of it in Britain -- at least at an affordable price.
My only slight complaint is that the way the case is organized leaves two empty slots. So if you're giving this as a gift, you might want to find something else to fill those slots, else it will look as if you've started the pack.
