BoroughBox craft beer and snack subscription review
For a beer delivery with added snack matching, we tested out the BoroughBox craft beer and snack subscription
The Craft Beer & Snack subscription box (£34.99) comes from BoroughBox, an online marketplace that connects small artisan producers with customers, describing itself as ‘the solution to your foodie cravings. A space for everyone who deserves a little treat’. The craft beer and snack subscription offers a delivery of six beers (selected from IPAs, ales, pils, blondes, porters and seasonal brews) and six snacks to match the beers ‘from cracking crackling and other meaty morsels to ale-flavoured popcorn’.
The BoroughBox website is comprehensive, comprising a whole range of artisan offerings (worth a browse in itself) so you’ll have to search to find the beer, but once there you can choose from a one month taster box or a three-, six- or 12-month subscription. Each month you will receive: six craft beers (two each of three types) and six beer snacks (typically 35g each). Spend £75 for free standard shipping. The boxes are shipped in eco-friendly BoroughBox branded kraft boxes.
BoroughBox works with a number of London craft breweries, including Crate, Five Points and Brick. In our box, we received:
Yeastie Boys Bigmouth Session IPA 4.4%: a light and easy drinking straw gold ale from New Zealand.
Jiddler’s Tipple Everyday Pale Ale 3.8%: a citrussy, malty pale ale that has been awarded two gold stars in the Great Taste Awards. It’s made by Jacob Liddle, who made beer at his home in Turnpike Lane, north London, for years before scaling up his home-brew operation with the south London brewery, By The Horns Brewing Co in 2019.
First Chop Pop 5.4%: American-style IPA, brewed in Manchester, with a distinctive fruity-bitterness from the use of orange peel.
Snacks: Serious Pig Crunchy Snacking Cheese; Made for Drink Chorizo Thins
Refreshing beer and salty – snacks what’s not to like? Great for a sunny afternoon or get-together with friends.
