But as the beer market expands, it can seem a bit bewildering. That’s why Beer Hawk has a large team of Cicerone-trained experts and an in-house beer sommelier dedicated to hunting out the world’s best beers for you to discover.
We bring you the very best brews that, once opened, immediately fill the air with sprightly hops and warming malts. These are the kinds of beer that will astonish and delight – they are the Eden Hazards and Yannick Bolasies of the drinks world…
If you want a hoppy belter of an IPA from the west coast of America, we can do that. Perhaps it’s something more sessionable like a quality bottle-conditioned British bitter that works. Maybe a puckering Belgian sour beer, or a tropical New Zealand beer? Or maybe, frankly, you’re not sure at all – well our carefully curated Discovery and Beer Club cases may be the best option.
Beer Hawk was started in 2012 by beer lovers Mark Roberts and Chris France for one reason: to find the best beers in the world. They’ve since built a company that sells thousands of beers a day and have achieved the best customer feedback in the industry.
“All we really wanted to do was to enjoy great beer at home,” explains Chris. “We were searching for a delivery service for amazing beers. One that cuts through the rubbish and, even if you weren’t familiar with the beer, you could pretty much guarantee it would be excellent. There was nothing around, so we decided to start it ourselves.”
Today, this fast-growing business has built a reputation for an unmatched choice of beers, reliability and great customer service. Come and join us – thousands have….
Top seven beers
Here are seven of the most popular and interesting beers at Beer Hawk right now:
Is this Britain's best IPA? New-world hops impart big notes of pine, citrus fruits and perhaps even grass while its big bitterness cuts through the sweet flavours like a hot knife. Medium-bodied with a long dry finish, this IPA lingers on your tongue for about a week.
One of the world’s best beers? Orval is a Belgian Trappist pale ale. Famous for its beautiful "Belgian lace" left on the glass from its huge head, this orangey-amber coloured ale is as complex as they come.
One of the best craft breweries in the US and world famous for this IPA. This crystal-clear Session IPA is chocked full of passion fruit, mango, apricot and candied citrus notes on the nose
Beer Hawk sponsor CAMRA’s Champion Bottled Beer of Britain Awards and curate a special case featuring all the finalists. This 2015 winner is an astonishing beer. It's thick treacle, huge boozy fruits, sherry, maybe port and a hundred other things all distilled into this little bottle and then marinated in melted oak. A must try!
Brewdog's entry into the ongoing grapefruit beer battle, Elvis Juice is infused with loads of tart grapefruit peel. This American-style IPA has intense aromas of, well, grapefruit alongside huge American hop notes of pine, resin and citrus.
Chocolate, liquorice and brown sugar notes contrast with pine and citrus hops in this American-inspired black IPA from this Danish ‘gypsy’ brewer who uses different breweries around the world to make astonishing beers.
The Veltins Pilsener is another one of the great German pilseners. Notable for its clean and crisp quality and loads of flavour, this lager is brewed using natural spring water from its own mountain.
