Craft Beer Tasting Notes

This Month's Mixed Case - May - May the force be with you!

Good people of craft beer! It’s that time of year again. What time of year, you ask? Only the
most important month of the year, Star Wars Month aka May. In celebration of all things
lightsabers, Jedi and Sith, we’ve taken the next step on our craft can quest in an effort to bring
balance to the League of Beers force.

You’ll notice that this month’s 12 pack case now comes in a 6 pack case but with 2 cans in each
slot. This is our part of our continued partnership with South Africa’s first mobile canning
company, Tiny Keg. Not only are cans way better at keeping beer safe and fresh, but they are
also much better for our carbon footprint. Packaging weight and delivery costs are some of the
most challenging aspects of e-commerce. By moving over to cans we are drastically reducing
both and we’re using the savings to purchase better and even more exciting beers for you.

We ask for your patience over this transition period but rest assured that we’re doing our best to
make the transition as smooth as possible. If you encounter any hiccups along the way, or if you
just want to drop us a suggestion then pop us a mail at hello@leagueofbeers.com. We’re also
always on the lookout for new beers to add to the mixed case and with Tiny Keg we are able to
hit any brewery and can beers fresh! So if you’ve got a favourite that you’d like us to check out
then let us know and we’ll see if we can make it happen. As always, we invite you to join the
craft conversation this May on @TastingLeague and until next month, may the force be with
you!
