ABOUT DRAUGHT DROP
Who are we?
We're two locals of Waltham Forest with a love of craft beer. We started Draught Drop because we wanted people to experience the amazing local breweries our borough has to offer with it's residents, in a way that's sustainable for our planet and importantly, on draught! We started the business just before COVID hit and believe that supporting our local breweries is now more important than ever.
How does it work?
Each Friday we deliver you a different beer from one of our partner breweries. This is counter-pressure filled straight from a keg to maximize freshness.
We have reusable bottles that we refill every week. They are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between use.
How much beer will I get?
You will get 2x1L bottles/ 3.5 pints of beer each week in our reusable bottles.
What beer will I get?
We're proud to be working with over 25 local breweries to offer a selection of hop forward beers including IPAs, Pales, and Lagers. You’ll get an email every week with the details – make sure you sign up at checkout to receive it. If you can’t wait for our email, we also announce our beers on Instagram and on our site the Friday before delivery.
