Save money on beer!
Craft beer is no longer something you have to hunt around or pay over the odds for (though you easily can). Most supermarkets will stock some decent beers that are actually drinkable and there are subscription clubs and specialist beer shops that are worth checking out too.
I’ve shared how to I get my craft beer in my How to get cheap craft beer article, but this page is dedicated to special offers, sales and vouches which will help you get already cheaper beers for less, or make rarer and more expensive small-batch beers more affordable.

Eight beers, including Brewdog for £9 at Tesco
This is a really good deal. Tesco is selling eight beers for £9 – essentially two eight-packs. This works out as £1.13 per can. The selection includes Brewdog’s Elvis Juice IPA, Goose Island IPA, Four Pure’s Session IPA and Vocation’s Life & Death IPA.
The Scottish brewery is rebranding and therefore clearing out the stock on most cans and bottles with the old design. There’s bottles of Elvis Juice for £1 and 4-packs of Dead Pony Club and Punk for £3.50, as well as a few seasonal beers down to 80p. So good savings. However there is a £5 delivery charge so you need to buy enough to make it worthwhile.
It’s probably worth checking in your local supermarket too to see if they’re selling off old designs at lower prices.
I really like Honest Brew’s selection, including my fave brewery’s Kernel and Cloudwater.
£10 free credit
If you become an Honest Brew member and top up by £10 you’ll get £10 credit applied to your account. You’ll need to enter the code REFWLGPF132RI.
Membership entitles you to discounts on beers, but if you don’t want to keep topping up by £10 every month you’ll need to pause or cancel your membership.
There is a £5.95 delivery charge for orders under £50.
Another decent online craft beer shop, based near me in Yorkshire. True fact: I nearly bought the house of the guy who founded it!
10% off first orders
Sign up to the Beer Hawk newsletter and you’ll get 10% off your first order.
From time to time Beer52 also offer heavily discounted boxes of beers that are close to or just past the best before date. They’re still good to drink, and I once picked up a fantastic Stone Brewery box with 8 beers for about £12. I’ll add any of these deals I spot below.
This offer will get you 12 beers on 10th April and access to four hours of live streams on the 17th April featuring Q&As with the brewers. It’s going for £45, but early buyers will get it for £30, plus £5 delivery.
Check your credit card or bank account to see if you can get an extra discount on top. I’ve got £12 off a £24 spend on Amex which would make this £23.
Free trial (pay £5.95 postage)
If you’ve never used Beer52 before then you can currently get a free box of 8 beers for just the cost of postage (£5.95). However make sure you cancel if you don’t want to keep paying.
