Staff Picks - JUNE - 12 Beer Mixed Case
Every month our staff dig through our chiller to find a great selection of interesting beers for you. This box contains a mixture of different styles and breweries that we're digging at the moment.
Van Honsebrouck / Kasteel Donker 11%
June's Staff Picks have been put together by Beer Jerk founder. Luke. You may know Luke as the face of Beer Jerk. He's the one sending you emails every week about the amazing selections he curates for our Classic subscription, posting videos on social media and flying the flag for independent breweries around the world.
When he's not up to his eyeballs in Wikipedia articles about historical German beer styles you can find Luke zooming around Auckland on a little red scooter, making sure everyone in the office is eating healthy and checking to make sure his hair is still immaculate.
For June, Luke has let his love for European styles run riot. He's put together a typically awesome selection of wintery beers for you to get you through these colder months.
