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
Juicehead. Cascade Chaos
Waaaay back in the early 2010s we were awash in Black IPAs (aka Cascadian Dark Ales after the region of the USA where they were possibly first made). With big hoppiness, medium body and a touch of caramel & roasted malt they have the best of both worlds. It is easy to see why Sam from Juicehead calls the style a 'brewers beer'. But it is a fine balance and it is very easy to veer too far toward a light, hoppy IPA or a sweet, roasty porter. Many an evening has been spent with beer fans arguing whether they are drinking a hoppy stout or a Cascadian IPA. Cascade Chaos employs lashings of US & NZ Cascade hops which give the Chaos solid piney, tropical, fresh bitterness. The malt gives it body and brings all sorts of flavours to the party - coffee, chocolate, liquorice and more. Neither side overpowers the other and we reckon it is one of those rare things in craft beer - an ale packed with flavour that you could drink several of without getting bored and while still discovering new nuances. The bottle art is a painting made by Emma using watercolour paint and oil paint.
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.
