If you haven’t already noticed a bit of a trend here, I am slightly obsessed with monthly subscription boxes and this next one is perfect for the craft beer lover in your life. The Brew Box sends you a box of Ontario craft beers so that you can discover new and exclusive brews every month. What’s really cool about Brew Box is that you can pick which ‘brew club’ you want to belong to. Currently there is the Brewscovery Club, Brewthusiast Club, Sawdust City Club, Silversmith Club and Beau’s Beer Club. You can browse the descriptions of each club to see which one meets your beer drinking needs and how many check-ins on Untappd you can get out of it, ha.
I tried out the Brewscovery Box which is an affordable starter box to get your palette wet. The box features 3 unique Ontario breweries, about 4 litres of craft beers, tasting notes, brewery profiles, and it all comes neatly boxed in recyclable packaging.
I was quite impressed by the beer selection in my box and loved that there were a few beers that are small batch, seasonal brews that are hard to find at the Beer Store or LCBO. The styles varied as well so you won’t be receiving all IPA’s or stouts. My favourites in this box was the Leftfield & Sweet Jesus Mocha Marshmallow Stout and the Royal City Brewing Co. Earl Grey Porter. I’m a huge fan of darker beers so these two gems were right up my alley.
The BrewBox is an excellent gift that you BOTH can indulge in. It makes for a fun night of beer tasting some of the best and freshest brews Ontario has to offer.
