Born from a passion for excellent NZ craft beer
New Zealand breweries brew some of the best beer in the world. But many beer-drinkers don’t know which craft beers will taste best. We do. Craft Box Direct brings together some of the best independent NZ craft brewers into one carefully curated range of well-made, balanced, drinkable craft beers. In our monthly selection we also include one or two more challenging beers to open your horizons! Then you can purchase your favourite beer from us at low direct prices, and we will have it delivered fresh, direct from the brewery!
John and Andrew are both BJCP beer judges, home-brewers and passionate craft beer enthusiasts. Together we work with award-winning independent NZ Craft Breweries, then we judge to select their best beers. We pre-sell it online to you the month before. The breweries brew and we pack and deliver only fresh beer to you – no storage in shops where it ages and oxidises. We bring better, fresher beer direct from the brewery to your home.
Beer-drinkers’ craft beer
Our criteria for selecting the beers is simple. Is it a really good beer? Do I want another one? But of course, it is not that simple. We select beers from the best independent breweries. Beers are judged by three BJCP-accredited beer judges to our specific criteria: Well-made, balanced and drinkable beer. We have rejected more than we have chosen. We want to make sure the beers are medal-standard, so you will love them too, and keep coming back for more. Each monthly selection box is a different mix of popular but interesting styles.
Beer is better fresh, direct from the brewery
Beer tastes better fresh, direct from the brewery. Most beer you buy is sitting around for months before it reaches the shelf because they use old-school supply and distribution channels. Not with Craft Box Direct. Your order is sent fresh, Direct from the brewery to your home. The monthly selection is sent fresh to us, packed overnight and then couriered Direct to you.
