We take a look inside the lastest subscription box to find out what makes these brews a cut above the rest
In an era where everything from make up to socks to pet food can be conveniently delivered through your letterbox it really is tempting to never leave your house again. This temptation recently grew even stronger when we discovered the team behind Naked Wines – supporters and sellers of low-production winemakers small batch, rare to find wines – revealed news of their beer subscription service. Designed for those who love beer (and convenience) the new service delivers a case of 20 fresh craft beers to subscribers every three months.
We took a look inside the first subscription box to marvel at the delicious selection and while reaching for the bottle opener Naked Wine's Beer Project Manger, aka 'Beer Gal' Eleanor, shared the lowdown on what makes these brews a cut above the rest.
Tempest Brew Co. Soma
'We first tasted this beer straight off the bottling line in Tweedbank and we've been thinking about it ever since. Gavin has honed this recipe to perfection to get the absolute best out the juicy new world hops that make this beer so marvelously moreish.This beer is sensational with anything crispy and fried'
Skinner's Brewery Starkers Pale Ale
'This is Naked's third exclusive brew and with the weather turning colder it's nice to have this little reminder of summer in your fridge waiting to chase away those winter blues. Starkers is perfectly refreshing and satisfying, without the eye-watering ABV. It's delicious on its own but it also pairs beautifully with fragrant thai dishes like green curry.'
