Needless to say, we’re of the opinion that beer is an essential commodity during the current lockdown situation and for those of you of a similar mindset, you’ve probably been scouring the web in search of breweries offering deliveries as well. Fear not, we’ve taken the legwork out of this for you and sourced some of the UK best breweries that are still keeping us home workers fuelled with their delicious amber nectars.
Check out our pick of 8 of the best breweries offering beer deliveries during lockdown below:
Seven Bro7hers Brewing Co
Seven Bro7hers Brewing Co are exactly what they say on the tin as they are seven actual brothers from Salford who love beer. (They also have four sisters who love gin.) Their dad got them into their love of beer – as he used to home brew when they were kids and so for them there’s a lovely nostalgia in everything about beer and, the good news for you, they are still delivering their delicious craft beers, which includes favourites like their Juicy IPA and Hoppy Pale Ale, during this period of self-isolation and social distancing.
We love the beers of Cloudwater Brewery here at The Coolector and so we are delighted to see that they are still delivering during the pandemic. Whilst the majority of their deliveries are local to their Manchester area, they still do nationwide deliveries as well with a touch less regularity. Their delicious beers are quite unlike anything else out there from a taste perspective and if you want to branch out your beer palate during the lockdown look no further. The guys at Cloudwater are also playing their part by offering a 25% discount to NHS workers. Good on them.
Beavertown Brewery are the makers of our own favourite beer here at Coolector HQ, in the shape of Neck Oil, and if you’re jonesing for a drop of their delicious drops too, you’ll be pleased to hear that you can still pick up 24 packs online from the London based brewery. Beavertown have an array of delicious craft beers to choose from and they will have something for every taste persuasion during the lockdown. Pale Ales, IPAs, Session Ales – they’ve got it all and you can still grab some with an online delivery to tide you over until we’re released into the wild again.
Brewdog are one of the UK’s biggest craft beer brands and they’re playing their part in keeping home workers suitably sozzled with their brilliant online deliveries. One of the best choices during quarantine is the aptly named Lockdown Lager which is a fruity, grapefruit number that will be refreshing for these hot summer days where we can’t actually get out and enjoy it. Brewdog have got loads of beers that we love here at Coolector HQ and through their online deliveries, we’re able to keep on top of our cravings over the next few weeks before, hopefully, be able to head back to one of their bricks and mortar establishments.
Heralding from where we grew up in the Peak District here at The Coolector, we had to include Buxton Brewery in our list of breweries still offering online deliveries during the lockdown. Offering loads of different beers to choose from including their core range and tasty limited edition offerings, if you’ve not had the beers from Buxton Brewery before, now is the perfect time to start. Some of the stand out ones to add to your online order include their Grinlow Session IPA, Axe Edge IPA and one of our own favourites, the Wild Boar IPA.
Camden Town Brewery
Another London favourite of ours, you can pick up the core brews from the guys at Camden Town Brewery during this working from home quarantine. Their classic concoctions such as Camden Hells and their WeekNite any day lager are up from grabs online and we’ll definitely be getting our hands on a case or two here at Coolector HQ. Beer is fuel in our opinion and the guys at Camden Town Brewery have some belting ales in their line up, all of which will be a welcome distraction whilst we eagerly await returning to some semblance of normalcy in the next few weeks and months.
Given that Thornbridge Brewery from Bakewell in the Peak District do the official beer of one of our favourite TV shows, Peaky Blinders, it would be rude not to include them in our list of breweries still doing online deliveries to keep the nation in libation for the next few weeks and months. They’re offering casks, bottles and cans so regardless of the quantity of beer you require, particularly if you happen to be residing in the Peak District and can do your own pick up, these would certainly be one of our first ports of call here at Coolector HQ.
If you like your beers a touch more exotic than the norm, the guys at Shindigger Brewery might be who you need to turn to during the lockdown. They’ve got a great array of vibrantly designed and delicious tasting craft beers that will hit the spot after a hard day of (pretending) you’re still being productive. They’ve got a great Shindigger Session ale which will be the ideal easy-drinking offering and if you’re after something a touch more fruity, we can heartily recommend their Mango Unchained IPA which is as refreshing as it is delicious.
