Keeping it real … Real Ale
PLEASE SEE MY TWO NEW POSTS ABOUT BEER52
I love a voucher! You love a voucher! Everyone loves a voucher!
I am a bit of a regular user on groupon I have bought all sorts from instragram photos, race dog tickets to hotels in Paris! I have heard all these horror stories from people using groupon about not getting their products etc but I have never experienced that myself.
When I went on groupon last month I noticed a ‘craft beer’ offer… Tenner for four bbottles of beer, olives (?!?), beer tasting chart and a downloadable e-book all delivered to your door! I thought that was a pretty good offer and I hadn’t heard of the beers in the group so I went for it!
Once I bought it and signed up for it I had realised that it was in fact a monthly subscription to a beer company that delivers beers to my house each month and I must admit I was a little angry as I hadn’t noticed this on the goupon when I first bought it. Like with a lot of free samples to things like this I thought it could be a pain in the arse to cancel.
So I read into it and I had realised I had signed myself up to a £24 a month rolling contract to have 8 bottles of craft beer sent to my house… I thought I might as well see the first one and see what it is like.
Well… I am extremely glad I did! The selection of beers were awesome I had only heard of one of them and it was packed brilliantly and presented nicely with a small guide to tell you all you needed to know about each beer and contact details! Which is great for me as I can review all the beers as I make my way through them!
My initial feelings have completely gone as when I think about it £3 for a bottle of craft beer I haven’t heard of delivered to my door is pretty good going.
So the question is… Will I continue the subscription? At the moment hell yeah!!! Before getting the first batch I was skeptical at what selection of beers I would get and it was all down to the selection whether I would continue to sign up to it or not! And after this first delivery I will be. I am interested into what other beers will follow as their website features pictures of Beavertown and Kernel which would be fantastic to have!
Over the next week’s I will be talking about each beer received and who knows maybe there will be more deliveries making their way out to thirsty beer monsters like myself! Long may it continue!
