American Beers

American Map

The subsequent Al Capone movies and moonshine were about the only good things to come out of America's Prohibitionist hell in the 1930's because, let’s be fair, what consequently passed as American beer for the next 50 years was nothing short of muck. Thankfully though this has all changed.

Forget the corporate megabreweries and behemoths of the likes of Miller and Coors, beer in America is in the vanguard of the craft beer revolution. In fact, most international beer trends are now influenced by the innovation and creativity coming out of the American craft beer scene.

High quality American beers from the likes of Goose Island, Brooklyn Brewery, and Sierra Nevada never disappoint while Stone Brewing Co. or Rogue Ales, for example, bring big flavours and that famous West Coast individuality.

American styles of beer tend to be lighter than most with the lager-style “Steam beer”, Wheat beer and India Pale Ales very much in the ascendance:

Wheat Beer – also known as White Beer.  Far and away the most common style is the HefeWeizen which is an unfiltered wheat beer, although different varieties are available Celis White and Blue Moon are the most celebrated American styles

India Pale Ale – Any decent American brewery makes a damn good IPA more bitter and stronger than your regular pale ale and usually above 5% abv.  Named after the English style as regular pale ale couldn’t survive the journey by boat to India during the colonial era, so hops and extra alcohol both acted as preservatives to boost the shelf life! Goose Island IPA, Flying Dog Doggie Style and Sierra Nevada Pale are classic brews of this type

Steam beer – A lager beer, originally made by Anchor Brewing Company in California by German settlers.  As the wort cooled in the production, a mass amount of steam was released during the creation of this pilsner imitation and the locals simply came to know it as Steam beer.

Unfortunately I had issues from start to finish which is quite likely putting my off from ordering again. - After being given a gift voucher - when trying to sign up to the website it was displayed offline and not working. - When I made my order and went to purchase - the transaction was cancelled, after calling there was no reason why it happened but said someone will call me during the week and sort it out. (ordered on a Sunday afternoon, for following Saturday delivery) - After calling on 3 occasions, the transaction was finally put through. - Come Saturday, no delivery. I end up calling on Monday to see what was happening and they had no idea why it happened. Upon further investigation turned out the bottles were damaged in transit so the order got cancelled (?). I was then asked if I would like them re-delivered, which I did, and express delivery was organized. Unfortunately meaning that I would be at work when delivery would happen (hence the request for Saturday delivery). In which I also asked for the beers to be left with a neigbour if I'm not in. They were actually left on my front door instead! Glad none got nicked but it's lazy work by the transit company. Overall, disappointed with the communication, having to talk to 4 different people and not being told/updated what was happening and chasing it when really it should be as easy as click, order, deliver.
Excellent service, beers were delivered 2 days after order and within the 1 hour slot provided. I was using vouchers I had been given which I found a little confusing to get applied but eventually found it. Excellent range of beers, I ordered two different crates. I don't think the value is great given it is an online company and buying non custom crates so would expect lower price per bottle. Wouldn't expect to pay much more for individual bottle in a pub for some of these beers. Some are often in supermarkets for less as well. As mentioned, mine were free as a gift otherwise wouldn't use the site.
Brilliant from start to finish. Quick delivery and the extra little touches in the box were great and made it feel like a premium service. I especially liked the card with tips on how to pour different beers.
