Charges & fees

Our beer is all shipped fresh and direct from NZ's best craft breweries. Where possible we look to absorb the courier costs as much as possible, however sometimes this isn't viable.The following are the charges per box;

  • All rural deliveries +$4.95
  • Brewery Tour™, Top-ups and and Gift Subscriptions from North Island breweries to South Island addresses +$2.95 
  • Sorry we don't deliver to Waiheke Island as it's simply cost prohibitive.

Delivery locations

Every delivery we make comes directly to you from from the brewery where it was brewed. 

Breweries typically dispatch orders around the third Monday of every month. As the location we deliver from changes, the amount of time to takes to get delivered can differ, but we provide tracking for all deliveries.

We deal with the biggest and best courier providers to ensure you get your beers delivered super fresh and in good condition. In most cases your beer should arrive within 2-3 working days from the day it was dispatched.

We will communicate with all subscription customers the expected date of delivery in advance of dispatch.
