Beer 52 in 2020

Beer 52 Review and Giveaway

Beer 52 are practically a household name in the beer subscription market.

They’ve nailed the promo side of things, with free boxes for friends and suchlike. For example, follow this link and you’ll get £12 off your first box of beer with Beer 52. That easy.

But I don’t believe that’s the sole reason they’re so popular. I think it’s this – the Craft Beer discovery club.

The monthly Craft Beer discovery club. It’s a box of beers sent out monthly to subscribers. The word ‘discovery’ implies that they’ve gone on a trek to bring you previously unknown wonders, and that isn’t a bad description.

The most recent box contained ten beers from Virginia USA.

Now, while I have a friend who hails from Virginia, I know nothing about it. But, through this box, I know now at least one thing – they love strong beer.




As usual, the box contains a good variety of beers. It ranged from Belgian style spicy beers to a lovely couple of bottles of porter and stout. In between were some solid, delicious IPA and blonde beer.




As well as being a quality range of beers, they were bloody photogenic. Look at those cheeky poseurs!

Beer 52 aren’t as cheap as the cheap beers in the shop, true. But what you get isn’t cheap beer from the shop. You are taken on a voyage of discovery, as promised, and I’ve yet to be disappointed by anything they’ve ever sent me.

You also get Beer 52’s own Ferment magazine and a bar snack to keep your brews company.

Whether you want some quality beer delivered to your door because the pubs are shut, or you want to try out some previously unknown beer, or if you’re looking for a present for a beer drinker, this is a great gift.

And remember – this link gets you £12 off. A great Father’s Day present!

    Keep to a routine, it doesn’t have to be rigid, but I go for my daily walk early in the morning avoiding too many people. I enjoy gardening while the weather is good, do jigsaws and puzzles and try to have my meals at a set time. I follow the old adage, early to bed early to rise!

    Keep to a routine – get up and go to bed at the same time every day. Eat proper cooked meals rather than just snacks. Use YouTube exercise videos and dance videos which are great fun. Chat to friends and family online using technology – and neighbours over the fence keeping six feet apart.

    But do look after yourself, go outside, get some air, exercise a little.
    If you feel a genuine desire to learn, create, do so, but don;t be under pressure! It’s ok, just to be ok right now!

    I’d say just take each day at a time. We began isolation from 4th March due to health reasons and it was really strange at first because the world carried on with schools etc carrying on for another few weeks but for us, we knew we had to stay home and we didn’t think of it as for several months – we just thought, “lets get through today” and then the same the next day. We’ve now done 3 full months in isolation like that.

    Consider what is important for you :- Helpful, positive, negative / harmful / hurts.

    If possible do what is best/ good for you :- Whilst keeping to Coronavirus (covid 19) regulations.

    Limit amount of time spent keeping updated regarding Coronavirus (covid 19). Find the news programme / newspaper which is most factually informative, and suits your purpose / aim. Avoid those that are unhelpful. / unsettling. We can only bear so much.

    If humour is helpful :- Maybe tv comedy. Which can allow us some distraction, variety, endorphins. DVD’s may be helpful.

    Spending some time outdoors for a walk in the fresh air. Listening and watching:- Life around us in the green grass, leaves on trees, chirping birds, etc.
