    HonestBrew is all about discovering and finding your favourites. As one of the UK’s go-to online retailers for craft drinks, we stock a constantly evolving range catering to a wide variety of tastes, and are dedicated to matching the right products to discerning customers. From a core selection of staple suppliers to an ever-rotating mix of exciting new producers - many of whom are exclusive to HonestBrew - our range is the best in the business.

    Based (in normal times) in our HQ in London, we are a team of 15 naturally curious people with a love of the beer and drinks industry and passion for the producers that we list.
