Shame that one of my ‘fuss’ beers wasn’t delivered. Spoke with CS and all was sorted with the can being replaced for some thing different as the one I choose first had sold out... I’m sure this isn’t a usual occurrence but still left a bitter taste...

The beer mats we ordered look fantastic. The detail of print on photographical elements is especially impressive compared to competitors I've used in the past. Would definitely use again!

Very quick turnaround on my order. Large range of beers available in many styles. They rang to advise of items out of stock and replacements suggested based on style of out of stock item. Refund made the same day when no replacement fitted. Would definitely recommend.

I'm been using them for several years . The service has been excellent, the beer club varied and interesting. Love the monthly themes to it and the price (especially if you sign an annual sub. It's still charged monthly). I also love the Beermerchants Tap. I liked the Beermerchants so much I contributed to the bar crowdfunding. Highly recommended .
