South African Craft Beer to your doorstep

February 29, 2012

Would you like to have fantastic beers brought to your doorstep as often as you like? I guess that you would if you read this blog. In many country’s you have that kind of  service. You could subscribe for beers according to your preferences. One example in Denmark and soon also in Sweden is the company DoorstepBrew. They have four themes:

* Discovery (if you have an interest but limited knowledge)
* Support the local (only local beers)
* Complete beer tasting (if you have a long experience of beers and want to have a wide range of beers)
* Keep to style (choose a style to subscribe for like Porter, IPA or Geuze)

You could choose 6 or 10 deliveries a year and what price range. In the beginning you could choose from 50-100 different beers from all over the world.

Is this available in South Africa? In a way it is? KegKing has a BeerBox that you could buy. I do not know if you could subscribe for it but nevertheless. They do need to get better beers in them though.

The Idea!
What about a South African Craft Beer Box that you could subscribe for. Many different high class craft beers to your doorstep every month! I know I would subscribe for it! Would you?

    Ive been trying to get this idea off the ground, the problem Im facing is that most brew houses don’t bottle their beer

    Yes I do understand that but maybe if we start with the ones that do bottle and go from there. You have some great bottled beers closer to Durban (from Johannesburg)

    Bottling is hell for small brewer if you do not have a proper bottling equipment.
    There are many solutions to this “problem” like getting a mobile bottling/capping/labeling device and go to the brewers and help out or collect kegs and then bottle. I might encourage someone (or you) to start a bottling business.

    Start a bottling business! 🙂
