Q. When are monthly club packs delivered?
Beer Club orders are taken throughout the month. Upon joining the Beer Club you will receive your first selection the month after you join, e.g. if you purchase in July, your first delivery will be the August selection. This has been done to ensure that there are no stock outs, meaning you always receive your beers. Unfortunately we are unable to hold off the first beer club delivery from being the following months pack. Please note that January Beer Club packs are dispatched in the second week of the month, all other months packs are dispatched in the first full week of the month.
