This is our “live” delivery calendar – it is subject to changes from time to time which are announced via our e-mail mailing list.
The zones are “fuzzy” – where there are borders we may certainly stretch beyond, and where zones meet there is a “grey area”. The schedule is likely to be modified from time to time depending on where the van needs to be.
Some areas, especially the more rural and remote, are harder to cover than others and accounts are assessed on a case-by-case basis. In some cases we may need to specify minimum orders above the usual £300 in order to justify delivering – or negotiate a small added delivery charge.
From time to time we get enquiries about pallet deliveries – we will assess these on a case-by-case basis. Key to us is that the beer is being treated well – we do not like sending bulk beer to sites without the coldstorage or turnover to handle it and maintain quality. We are also mindful of our good relationships with brewers and others in the craft beer distribution world and aim to “play nice” so will often direct you to ask breweries who your local supplier should be.
We are also only willing to ship non-returnable beer formats across the UK by pallet. This covers the various forms of plastic keg, plus bottles and cans. Pallet shipments under a “full pallet” will typically attract a shipping and handling fee of around £30 ex-VAT – again assessed on a case-by-base basis and depending on what our hauliers want to charge us for a given location.
We will not ship cask by pallet, nor steel kegs.
