Brewery Spotlight: April Box

We are delighted to introduce our April Subscription Boxes. We have a fantastic range of beers from amazing small batch craft breweries across the UK for you to enjoy this month.

Brass Castle

We are so excited to have Brass Castle in our Dark and IPA boxes. They are a vegan and gluten free brewery brewing some amazing, innovative beers based in Yorkshire. Ellie from Brass Castle told us, “Brass Castle brews with integrity and curiosity. We are huge beer fans and we’re convinced that beer is a force for good in the world. Beer brings people together. Our responsibility is to bolster that community as best we can, and so to DO BEER BETTER. That means making great-tasting beer properly and sustainably, from the best ingredients, and making it as engaging and accessible as it can be.

Our aim is to be Britain’s best brewer of vegan and gluten-free beers, from our homestead in the Food Capital of Yorkshire: Malton. Innovation and curiosity have been key to achieving that goal. The only immediate clue that our beers are vegan and gluten-free is that they taste better. And that’s because we’ve brewed them better. So less wastage at all stages and happier drinkers. Along the way, that has brought us many awards and more friends - such is the joy of beer!”

We have the Bad Kitty Vanilla Porter 5.5%, Trinitario Chocolate Stout 5.0% and Blue in the Face Pale Ale 5.8% in our boxes this month. We hope you enjoy their beers and be sure to pop into their taproom if you are every in the area.


Neck Stamper

Neckstamper is a London based brewery, located in Walthamstow, contributing to the high density of amazing breweries in the area. We caught up with Adam at Necktstamper and he told us, “Neckstamper specialises in hop-forward, punchy styles as well as porters and lagers brewed traditionally but with a modern twist. We regularly release specials experimenting with different hops, yeast and brewing techniques. 

We often get asked about the name - Neckstamper! Our name and the name of our beers come from old beer slang. Neck-stamper was the term given to the pot-boy/girl at ale-houses in the 1600s. Their job was to collect the tankards that had been sent out to homes, the empties were strung around their ‘necks’ as they ‘stamped’ around the streets of London.”

In this month’s subscription boxes we have the Moon Curser APA 5.2% and Mizzle NEIPA 6%  


Overtone is a Glasgow based brewery famous for their juicy New England style IPA’s. Established in Glasgow in 2018, Overtone has become one of the most popular players in the British Craft beer community. Mirroring the vibrant ethos of Glasgow's music scene, Overtone's beer names and label designs are a reflection of their shared passion for music and the city's cultural dynamism, embodying qualities of freshness, vibrancy, and constant evolution.

With a dedicated and culturally diverse team at its core, Overtone is on an exciting journey to expand its global community, embracing a philosophy that celebrates inclusivity with the belief that "beer is for everyone."

Left Handed Giant

Left Handed Giant is a Bristol-based brewing company, with three premises across the city. They make a variety of styles from two brewery sites based in Bristol, one at their taproom in St Philips, and one at the brewpub in the heart of the city.

In 2014, a man named Rich Poole walked into Small Bar, Bristol, and handed some beer over to Bruce Gray and Jack Granger. This began a brewing journey that started on a 200L kit through the back of that same bar, before developing into a cuckoo brewery operation known as Left Handed Giant.

We caught up with Liam who told us more about the brewery, "Our own physical brewery operation began in 2017, before raising more than £1m from the local community via Crowdcube to build the beating heart of our business, a brewpub overlooking the floating harbour in the centre of Bristol, which opened in 2019. We now operate over 2 brewing sites, producing around 4000 hL of beer annually, sold through independent pubs, bars and bottle shops with the majority straight to tap through our Finzels Reach Brewpub, our St Philips Tap Room and still, from where it all began at Small Bar.

We are proudly a Founder, Employee and Community owned business. We are owned and operated by the people who work in and use our premises, and drink our beer. We have 1500 shareholders in our small company, with more than 80% of them having BS postcodes."

We have two awesome sour beers from Left Handed Giant this month, they are Organised Nonsense Sour 5.5%, Dear Future 4.0%.
