What will my box contain?

As Toyah famously said, “It’s a mystery, it’s a mystery.” Remember Brew Box is a geek box for beer lovers and as such, you can’t choose your beers. However, rest assured, your box will contain only the best beers carefully curated by our friends at Coppers of Gosforth. Depending on your order it will be made up from bottles and cans from a core range and/or specials and collabs. See below for the difference.

Core range

Specials & Collabs

Primarily from smaller breweries, specials tend to be short-run, limited availability and mind-blowingly good. Collabs, as the name suggests, are collaborations from large and small breweries alike. Experimental and typically stronger, they tend to be the ones everybody wants. If we can get them, we’ll get them to you.
