YOU'RE WELCOME YOU BIG NINNIES
looks pretty straighforward?
It's extremely straightforward.
1) Purchase the Groupon at the above URL.
2) Go to Beer52, regsiter and copy the Groupon code into the relevent field.
3) Pay the postage (this will be £2.99 extra)
4) You'll get a card through the post which you can then redeem on the Beer52 website for however many bottles you bought.
Hope that helps?
4) Your beer will be delivered at some point.
plus, the hassle of remembering to cancel the subscription = not that good a deal
Just put a reminder in your calendar / diary of choice and voila, cancelled!
from most supermarkets. so factoring in P&P, and the hassle (albeit not much) of cancelling the thing.....this ain't for me!
I've had this box delivered for a year, and can count on one hand the number of beers that are available to buy in my local supermarkets.
What's in the supermarkets is really widely available at all times usually and can get boring.
Is to give you a choice of things you wouldn't normally try. 95% of them have been better than the bland, shite bitters and IPAs that are available in the supermarkets.
No big deal whatsoevs.
Got 2 free extra beers and have to go back in 24hrs to cancel my 'subscription'.
It's very easy and works out pretty cheap, 10 decent beers delivered to your door with some free shite for £11.
Used the same email as last time, even logged into my beer52 account using the same details. No bother.
Same here. Also had £6 in my Groupon account so cost me £2 + £2.99 postage. Have no idea why these people on here find it so much hassle.
Oh yeah I remember because they're big massive babies.
Some of us are in the middle of transitioning and can't help still being Big, I am shrinking but it takes time and certainly wont help with comments like yours.
so it's fine.
and the beer actually SOBERED THEM UP!
for more than it would cost to buy them in a shop with the added faff of cancelling a subscriptiong? Sign me up pronto.
£8 + £2.99 postage = 8 #decent beers for £10.99, a little under £1.40 each.
If you a) think this is cheap for "craft" beer, b) don't have a car or an easy way to carry some beers back from a shop and c) think that being able to cancel immediately after you purchase them is fine then this deal is for you (so not for you?).
I think it's because you're a big baby.
it's offensive to Toasty
just pay a bit extra and put beers in my car like a big human adult m8
Picked it up and rode it home, obviously.
i'm still tempted by this though, i rarely ever buy myself nice beer
The deal was really good last time, and it was really straight forward to sign up to and cancel the recurring subscription.
Also, last time they added in an extra two beers that weren't originally advertised, so I presume it would be 10 for £8. Plus the £2.99 delivery charge.
Not sure I'd be able to sign up again, considering i'm already signed up though?
Or do the infamous putting a random dot in your gmail to make it think you're a different person.
why would I do that to myself again pniknik?
£1+ a beer?
Not for me, cheers.
I've seen the word subscription without the terms relating to said subscription being clearly included in the Groupon smallprint. Also, it appears to be a voucher that you have to then use with a third party. So, basically, it's one of those Virgin Wine leaflet non-offers, but with beer. Also, having beer delivered by post, and the inevitable undelivery faff. Also, I go past Drygate at least twice a day.
So, for those reasons, I won't be investing. But it's not a bad product and I wish you the very best.
I guess not everyone's as excited for cheap beers as you are P-Nikz...
It's about as meaningful as a typical EULA.
I've just added the voucher to my existing membership (which I only used for this last Groupon deal) and it says I can cancel the "subscription" I have signed up for (I haven't) in 24 hours.
Understand the delivery faff. Doesn't seem to be an issue in my block as there's always someone in to take large boxes. I'd personally much rather have heavy stuff delivered, I can only ever carry about 5 bottles of beer back from my nearest "craft" beer place without collapsing, and I don't own a car.
"I've just added the voucher to my existing membership (which I only used for this last Groupon deal) and it says I can cancel the "subscription" I have signed up for (I haven't) in 24 hours."
I don't have a car, either.
Does it come in a nice gift box / crate or anything? Might make a nice present for my brother-in-law.
Also comes with bottle opener and a book and other shite, so for a gift it's ideal really.
I'll fetch my coat
I take a long lunch and this shit happens again.
Hang your head 'lonzy. Hang it in shame.
alcxxk is down like £90 because of planik's meddling
then i got refunded
but i learnt from the experience, and now feel i can handle the trickiness of this dealio
Seems like a good deal...
oh yeah, vinyl's cool, just send me some cool vinyl please
How much washing up do you think you could do without any washing up liquid?
these kind of products are essential. The kind of products no one could do without.
well done, mate
The deal was ok (little to no faff involved) but about half the beers weren't really doing it for me.
And there was no beer snack!!!!!!!!
It was tasteless.
The bottle opener is nice though.
all part of planik's plan no doubt
really liked the beer and kept the subscription
thank you pnik
Has to be
different to buying food?
then what's the problem?
bar the subs cancellation i need to do tomorrow.
also the beers are listed, which is nice. the £4 deal actually has stuffee i'd prefer
Fuming it wasn't tbh. That was honestly my highlight of Christmas 2014 (I'm a sad and lonely man). Offer has expired now, obviously, but get a load of it: https://www.groupon.co.uk/deals/gg-sim-buy-14-39 £30 delivered!
and I didn't get completely shafted like I did by pnikis stupid beer club.
it comes with A PACKET OF GOURMET CRISPS
and i find it really hard to carry a packet of gourmet crisps home from the shop.
then time out has an offer with better beers in (beavertown!!) for £6 for 6 beers
Have you got a link meo?
knock yrselves out lads
tho I assume given the photo it MAY include a singular can of Neck Oil
is because I won tickets to a "meet the brewer" they were putting on upstairs in a pub in Maida Vale. Tickets were meant to be £20 and they advertised that you'd get 4 cans of beer each. GREAT! I thought.
When we got there, they said yes, we could have 4 cans each, but 4 BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE! So basically the poor sods who paid £20 each basically paid £10 for each can they had. LOL.
When we got there, they said yes, we could have 4 cans each, but 4 BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE!
2 cans of beer for £20. Plus bullshit "meet the brewer" (in this case it was more "meet my pals who hang around in the brewery with us"). This is why I hate them.
I thought that was how much you paid for cans in London?
cos they're just too expensive.
not Kernel, obv, but people like Partizan, Pressure Drop, Brixton, Redchurch don't hold a candle to them
pressure drop >>>>>>> beavertown
Pressure Drop's fine, but some of their stuff's gimmicky and none of it's knock-your-socks-off tasty. the Bosko and Stokey Brown are good, but that Wu Gang thing's dreadful. their Street Porter just doesn't have the depth of Beavertown's Smog Rocket (not quite comparing like with like, i know. but still)
pale fire is great
wu gang is very nice
not had wallbanger
Beavertown is just, like, with the exception of Neck Oil which i can take or leave, everything is always delicious
add Late Knights, Gipsy Hill and Brick Brewery to the list too.
then completely rinse my bank account?
signup wasn't too bad, but the delivery went missing. Ended up arriving about 3 weeks late (followed by a second one the day after, which was odd). Cancellation was by email only but didn't get charged anything beyond the initial sum.
my beers arrived with all the snacks and accessories and things
quite a good deal isn't it!
Yeah, mine too. You've cancelled the subscription tho, right?
Quite a few of the breweries are new to me as well so I'm excited to drink the beer :)
They weren't very spicy, we were disappointed.
will prolly cancel but...
now to cancel
feel a bit bad
It's the nature of these deals.
Also, at least a few chumps will keep the sub.
There should be a link under the "My subscriptions" (or something) bit on your account?
then it tells me to sign in to confirm (im already signed in) and i click the facebook sign in button and it says it doesnt work. NIKKKKERSSSS
thank you NIKKKKKKKERRRRRRS!!!!!!
also i enjoyed the popchips just now
hope you enjoy the beer too!
dont like beer much
not actually remotely excited about any of them. feels like a virgin wine box at this point
american extra bitter thing was nice enough but quite odd, wasn't sure what it wanted to be
Love a sour
was nice, could drink an occasional one
I'd suggest smashing some berliner weisse. Especially buxtons
for a spurious reason
the rest are alright.
They're one of special beers tend to be a bit wank
I was going to create a new thread, but as I don't post much I thought I'd stick it on here.
A few of you mentioned the beer advent calendar?
Well, it's back...
Now, the light beer or the wheat beer box? Decisions, decisions...
I like wheat beers in moderation, but not a month of them.
and lots that say "hell".
showed off the diversity of the breweries even in similar styles (some very sweet and malty, some quite citrusy and bitter, etc etc).
...rather than Bud/Coors Lite.
•Classic calendar contains 24 x 0.33L bottles
•Light and wheat calendars contain 24 x 0.50L bottles
classic sounds more interesting though :/
Lot of overlap in terms of breweries and styles... depends what you fancy I guess.
Hopefully others won't miss this, as they won't come back to this thread. Maybe it deserves it's own thread?
it doesn't like they deliver to the UK any more.
Last year two friends ordered it (including _sam!) direct and it was ~£20 and shipping was free. Ridiculous offer.
working out to a quid a bottle iirc. Hmm.
much better than niki's awful, awful original deal.
There's no real flavour difference between the majority. Granted i'll smash a Aventinus Eisbock into next week but all helles are much of a muchness and so are the wheats
but this is an outrage.
WHAT HAVE I DONE?!
for less than £1.50 a bottle, which is cheaper than you'd get most 500ml bottles in a supermarket. It's fine. Chill. Merry Christmas.
Will prolly just nip to Aldi/Lidl and pick some equivalents up at my leisure...
All I can find is discontinued stuff that the likes of Shepherd's Neame and Wychwood couldn't successfully bring to market. Never seen any decent craft shit in there.
...in the run up to Christmas each year. Then, if you're lucky, discount it down to 49p a pop afterwards.
but my girlfriend got the 4 one. there was some mess-up though and she got it TWICE.
did the timeout 6 one as well and yodel told me they delivered it but i dont have it. what a palaver
thanks for listening
nobody needs a beer advent calendar
So happy to see the beer advent calender back again - thanks for the heads up, ynot.
Great work all round.
thanks a lot planik
