An East London based draught beer subscription service is now available, offering refillable beers and wine delivered straight to your doorstep.
Draught Drop’s Discover London Craft Beer subscription provides two 1 Litre bottles of fresh beer from its selection of 25 local partner breweries in reusable glass bottles. Customers can then enjoy their three and a half pints and when they are done, they can simply leave their bottles on the doorstep to be swapped for a freshly filled beer on their next order. It is currently available across North and East London, with plans to expand further. The beer is delivered on electric bikes on Fridays, a perfect way to kick off your weekend. Customers can pause their subscription at any time, change the frequency (either weekly, fortnightly, or monthly) or swap their beers if there’s something they don’t like.
The Discover London Craft Beer subscription costs £17 per order (plus £3.99 delivery charge).
Draught Drop features a different beer every week from a selection of IPA, Pales, and lagers. Previous breweries on tap have included East London Brewing Co., Howling Hops, Signature Brew, Wild Card Brewery, Redemption Brewing Co., and Two Tribes. Draught Drop also offers one off purchases and gift cards.
Draught Drop was founded by husband and wife team Tom and Mellanie Struthers. Mellanie Struthers, co-founder said: “Draught Drop is the UK’s first refillable draught beer delivery service that offers great quality craft beer which supports our local community and protects the environment. We only sell fresh beer on draught, and source it from local independent breweries. Our bottles are filled straight from kegs, both of which are completely reusable, and all our beer is delivered emission free on electric bikes. Our refill service is kinder to the environment and offers great value too.”
Fellow co-founder Tom Stuthers said: “We love being part of the refill movement. It’s great to see so many of our customers getting on board to enjoy pub quality beer from the comfort of their own home with the knowledge that the environmental impact is much smaller.”
Draught Drop has also recently launched a refillable wine service, partnering with Sustainable Wine Solutions. Bottled in London and sourced from independent, organic vineyards focused on biodiversity, it offers single 75cl bottles or a mixed trio. With biodegradable labels, sustainable corks and the same zero emission delivery to your door, the refillable system works in the same way; leave your bottles on the doorstep to be collected and replaced on your next order.
