BeerBods Subscription

My dad enjoys a decent beer, at almost seventy-two its one of his little luxuries in life.  So when I was offered the opportunity to see what BeerBods was about I quickly accepted with him in mind, I tend to think of beer first when picking out a present for my dad for any occasion really.  It works just as well for Fathers Day, birthdays, Christmas or as a thank you (for looking after our dog or babysitting the kids!).

But my dad enjoys trying new varieties, so I have my work cut out finding enough new beers to introduce him too.  Fortunately BeerBods simplify the process for me, rather than painstakingly hunt down beers when I visit new places, I can buy a gift subscription for him instead.  Then he will have a selection of beers delivered and learn more about each one as the weeks go by.

I also like how social BeerBods is, this evening for example at 9pm (if I hadn’t been struggling to get my two monkeys to bed!) I could have joined in a conversation about this weeks beer using the hashtag #beerbods.  Part of the attraction of beer is the banter but this way you can still get involved in a chat over a beer without having to head to your nearest watering hole.  I had a little look afterwards and you can see pictures of people enjoying their beer and their first impressions.

BeerBods was initially formed by friends tasting beers in a shed and progressed to become a leading subscription service, the scale might have grown but what hasn’t changed is the founders commitment to finding beers that breweries put their heart and soul into making (Matt we salute you!).  The packaging caught my attention before I even got as far as unveiling the chosen 12 beers; “Drink Better Beer” was written boldly on the box.  That really does sum up BeerBods; they are helping you appreciate every bottle (or can!) of beer you drink.

I would definitely use BeerBods again, I have paid considerably more than £36 for 12 bottles before, so it will work out at a bit of a saving for me and my dad will have the novelty (if he ever got the hang of social media or computers for that matter!) of joining in with the hashtag!


  1. I do like a nice real ale. Your dad is getting quite a choice.

  2. This looks brilliant although my hubby doesn't really drink so not ideal for him ;-)

  3. This looks like a great subscription! My OH is trying to lose weight so he doesn't drink beer otherwise I'd be ordering it for him x

  4. This would be the perfect gift for an ale drinker. My Dad would have loved this when he was alive.

  5. This would be ideal for my uncle, he loves his beers and real ales
