Beer Delivery Information

For UK ORDERS - Your order will be dispatched, via couriers APC Overnight, on a LIQUID FRAGILE service.

We suggest that the standard delivery is up to 5 working days from order confirmation, however typically we ship much faster!

We use an overnight rate, meaning that you get your beers, normally within the next 72hrs of ordering, typically before 4.30pm, bar weekends.
How our delivery system works

You will first receive an order confirmation e-mail, followed by a shipment confirmation e-mail from beermerchants and our courier giving you details of your delivery with a consignment number for you to track your order on the courier site. If you have checked out as a registered customer, rather than a guest, your order has been despatched it will show as complete in your user account page.

APC's like most couriers, when you are not in when delivery is made, a card will be left with contact details for you to arrange another delivery. If the courier is not contacted, they will automatically try to deliver your beers on the next two consecutive days, leaving a contact card on the first day and a card to advise of the consignment being returned to the depot on the second. Should the goods then be returned to beermerchants after all attempts have failed, we will issue a full credit, or re-despatch on your instruction when the same delivery cost will be charged against your account.

Alternatively on the third attempt the courier will deliver to a neighbour, you will then be carded and informed where the parcel has been left. We require a signature on all parcels delivered.

We are unable to offer Saturday deliveries.

Our Packaging

We use a high quality packing case, high impact specially designed for shipping beer.

We also use biodegradeable packing "peanuts" to envelope the beers in their shipping boxes. These starch-based packing peanuts were developed as a more environmentally friendly alternative, in the 1990's.

UK Carriage Charges

The minimum order value is £20.00.

Carriage is charged at £6.75 per order for For deliveries of 5 cases or over or descrepancies, you will be contacted to advise of additional costs before your order is despatched and given the option to cancel.

XMAS BEERS - Christmas Beers!

For us, the most exciting thing about the holidays is the onslaught of Christmas beers. We're talking big, hearty, Belgian holiday ales. Most are characterized by a strong, dark malty sweetness offset by a heavy dose of baking spice flavors and heightened alcohol content to help you stay all warm and toasted toasty. There are variations, of course, not to mention a wonderful world of British "winter warmers"
