Eebria Craft Beer – Review


Eebria do the beer subscription service, but they also do far more. What’s more, when it comes to variety, they do it all well.

For lovers of cider, wine, gin and other boozy delights, Eebria source a massive variety of producers and pass that info on to you. But that’s an aside for a beer lover like me.

Eebria
This list or breweries that Eebria work with is huge. Luckily, for people who want Eebria to do all the selection work for them, they have a couple of beer club services. In Eebria’s own words, the Brewery Club subscription: “Each month we feature a different one of our incredible brewery partners, giving you the chance to get to know them better and try their amazing beers.”

I’m reviewing the Discovery Club : “Every month, our team of experts hand select a mix of 12 exciting beers from 12 different EeBria breweries, beers that we really want to drink and try ourselves”.

Eebria

July’s selection (above) is the widest variety of beers I’ve ever seen in a monthly beer box. I mean, they are drastically different. There are no two beers alike.

Eebria eeb-02b

From the rich depth of Anarchy Brew Co’s chocolate and coffee Hard Times Porter (4.5%) to Orbit Beers’ Apricot Saison (5.9%), there’s every flavour on the beer spectrum up for grabs here. There’s also a variety of strength from the acidic Notting Hill Sour (3.0%) to the fruity IPA, Domino Topple (7.2%).

eeb-03a eeb-03b

The wide number of styles also varies across ingredients. Wheat beer? Check (Harpoon Brewery’s UFO White from Boston). Pilsner? Yup (Monday’s Pilsner from Greece!). Brown beer? It’s here too (California’s Heretic Brewing Co’s Buffalo Badger).

Eebria’s aim is to provide a journey through the world of beer, avoiding those big name Supermarket brands. They do it, with quality beers, and also stretching all around the world to source their wares. They also provide an excellent leaflet in the box that gives you extra details about the contents. Little touches like that – providing history and details about the beers – really make the difference for someone who’s interested in beer.

The Discovery club from Eebria isn’t cheap. Your first box is £22, then it goes up to £32 a month. Delivery is £5.99 on top of that. They do offer savings for longer subscriptions.

Eebria

If you’re looking for a gift for a beer lover who wishes to expand their palette, or if you yourself are a hophead wanting a very wide selection of different beer types, then the Discovery Box from Eebria is a good choice.

    Garlic beer was a terrible choice, it smelled so strong and just tasted all kinds of wrong,

    A Lemon, Lime and Bitters which came as a pint of bitter with a lemon slice and a lime slice in it. Recommended non-drink is NZ Dogbolter AFTER you’ve had a pint of Lowenbrau. The result is immediately projectile explosive and I saw that happen to five others just after I’d cleaned myself up from my attempt!

    The most unusual think I have ever drunk, in the sense that I will never get the chance to drink it again, was ice wine which was from the supply kept by the family who owned the vineyard. It was divine.
