How it Works
1. Get Beer
We send a box of 12 different beers to your home or workplace. Rare and interesting beers which you won't find in your local bottle shop. Don't drink them yet though, they need to last you 12 weeks.
2. Drink Beer
Every Thursday (at around 7:30) Beer Jerks around the country drink the same beer. We'll have sent you the story of the brewery and the beer along with tasting notes. If they feel like it they Instagram, Tweet or Facebook their reviews.
3. Repeat weekly
This one is pretty self explanatory...
THIS WEEK'S BEER
Brekeriet | Lucifer
We have no idea why Brekeriet decided to name such a heavenly beer Lucifer. Brettanomyces (British Fungus) was found in many beers before Louis Pasteur isolated yeast strains and brewers began favouring certain strains. Brett is known as a spoiling agent in wines and many beer styles due to the funky flavours it imparts which can bring to mind sweaty horse blankets and band-aids. Belgian Lambic breweries have always loved Brett and, in recent years, breweries the world over have embraced it. The yeast produces acetic acid which results in tart, sour flavours which are a perfect choice to compliment the passionfruit and pungent saffron in Lucifer. Beers made with Brett are highly attenuated and the dry finish works as a good foil for the super juicy passionfruit. Saffron is the most expensive food on earth, the spice comes from the stamens Crocus flowers. It has a sweet, savoury, earthy flavour and (fortunately) a little goes a long way. This is a complex and very special beer. Skål!
I'm no beer connoisseur but after one round I'm almost feeling beer savvy. Just don't drink them all in one week. It'll leave you feeling left out. #rookieerror #wantmorebeer #jealous #cantwaitfornextdelivery #yougetthepicture

I love the tasting notes and food matches each week and have become quite knowledgeable already. I even know more than some of the guys at work now! Very impressed with the Beer Jerk set up. I totally recommend Beer Jerk to anyone interested in craft beers. Thanks Beer Jerk!

Beer Jerk Thursdays! Quickly becoming my favourite day of the week. I'm now deep in the beer matrix and a world of beer I had no idea existed. Yeah!

We think it's cool. But then you probably can't rely on our testimony, we made this whole thing up.
