What Our Customers Have To Say

Of course we are biased towards our own beer subscription packs so here's what some of our members have said in their reviews.



"This is the perfect gift for the man who has everything. I've purchased this as a gift on 3 occasions now and each time it has been received with absolute delight. It makes my shopping easy and satisfying. I just love to see the joy on their faces when they realise what they've got." - Robyn E.


Very Good

"I gave the subscription to my boyfriend as a birthday present last month. We have received 1 shipment so far. My boyfriend really liked the beer that has been sent so far and it was a good variety. It is a great present as it keeps on giving for the next 6 months." - Morgan G.


Love It!

"I love coming home to a surprise package left in my garage, reading the tasting notes as the beer is chilled, then enjoying them with my mate down the road. Love it!!" - Dan


Absolutely Excellent

"Just renewed for 2nd 6 month subscription. What better way to enjoy brilliant craft beers from Australia and around the world. Even better someone else does the hard work and I sit back and enjoy. Great that there is also a focus on supporting Australian based craft brewers." - Adrian



"Great stuff. This makes the beginning of the month so much more exciting. Love the fact that there are no repeats and the range in beer style is only restricted by what Beer Cartel have on offer. Which in my opinion is just about endless!" - Rebecca F.


Convenience & Variety

"This is a great idea for those that hate to make decisions. The variety in beer that is delivered is amazing, with varieties being the more lessor known products of the world, including Australia, that you wouldn't normally have purchased yourself." - Amy W.
