You spoke, we listened

Last month we solicited feedback from our customers around four key themes.

Freshness, refrigerated vs. standard shipping, monthly pack content & packaged beer options.

The results are in and here's how they shake out;
  • overwhelmingly our customers believe that fresh beer tastes better. We agree!!
  • Refrigerated vs. standard delivery was split down the middle. Different strokes for different folks
  • Monthly packs were quite mixed. Many wanted one beer type, seasonal beers & brewery take overs to feature
  • There was a great deal of interest in purchasing fresh packaged beer if available
This feedback is extremely valuable to us so thanks! In fact we've already started to act on it. See below...

New delivery options now available

Based on your feedback we're pleased to announce you now have a choice between refrigerated or standard delivery. If you are Melbourne based you can choose which option suits you best. If you choose refrigerated the price of your purchase will be higher than the standard delivery option. Select your shipping method when you select your product. We prefer to keep our beer cold throughout the value chain however believe it's important to give the customer a choice. 

Great news! We're now also delivering our CANimals nationally! We've had a lot of requests to do this and have now got a solution in place. Standard delivery only at this stage.            


Packaged beer now available!

We've listened to your feedback and have now introduced monthly packaged beer deals! We're keeping the focus on freshness and value. We go to great lengths to ensure we source the freshest beer possible. No more wondering how long ago your beer was packaged and where it's been stored. We'll let you know when it was packaged to ensure we get the beer to you in it's freshest state and we store it in our cool room until delivery day to ensure maximum freshness.

And, we're selling for less than the recommended retail price!

We're excited to have started our monthly package feature with a limited supply of Modus Operandi 500ml packs of Former Tenant Red IPA and Modus Pale Ale.

Sneak peak at August's pack

We've got a fantastic pack lined up for August.  "Two keg only releases" and a cracking porter to help take the winter chill off. 

                                    Old Wives Ales
                                             Blood Moon Red IPA - 7% ABV

                                             Keg only release.

                                             Big, Dank and Juicy.


Modus Operandi

Sonic Prayer IPA - 6% ABV

Keg only special release. 

Expect mind altering, reverberating, aromas of citrus, peach, passionfruit,
stone fruit and pine followed by an unstinting malt body and bitterness.

Silent Knight Porter - 5.6% ABV
Award winning porter.
Aromas of rich chocolate and roast on the nose, we brewed our porter with the idea of a session version of a Russian Imperial Stout in mind. A complex blend of 9 types of malt form a dessert like blend of chocolate, roast and caramel flavour while still finishing on the light and dry side.

From the team at Hops to Home, we thank you for your support.

Until next month...

It's a fact. Fresh beer tastes better.
