    Shop bought beer in a Swing top bottle

    I looked at placing an order from Germany yesterday: supermarket24 have removed UK from their list of countries that that will ship to, web-bier have a note saying (rough translation) "Dear British beer connoisseurs, It looks like there can be unlimited deliveries to you even after Brexit. But...

    Shop bought beer in a Swing top bottle

    My order from supermarket24 placed on 7th Dec arrived in two parcels, the first (6 bottles) on Wed 16th and the second (24 bottles) on Thur 17th. Not an unreasonable time especially at this time of year. Lovely beers so I'm happy. The packaging of the 24 bottles was not great, several bottles...

    Wow that is far better service than I've ever had from them, excellent. Yes their packaging is superb, I've never had a broken bottle (not even on my first order with them when the box arrived showing signs of having been dropped somewhere in transit) Enjoy the beers !

    It's usually Marco that e-mails. I'll be really interested to hear how you get on, how did you actually place the order?

    Shop bought beer in a Swing top bottle

    gibbo-sd: Thanks for the suggestion of supermarket24, I've just placed an order with them so will wait and see how it goes. I was interested to find out how they calculate shipping and by playing around putting various things in and out of the online shopping basket I discovered they charge...

    Shop bought beer in a Swing top bottle

    Further to my earlier answer about duty and VAT: I just checked, the government website and it states "....from 1st January 2021...........you need to pay customs duties and VAT on all imports" For "beer made from malt in bottles holding <=10l" (commodity code 2203 0001) the duty rate stays...

    Shop bought beer in a Swing top bottle

    No customs or VAT to pay, this was at least the 5th time I've bought direct from Germany and have never had to pay duty or VAT................but of course things are probably going to be different after Br***t is done next year. By the way, do also check out web-bier , less choice but much...

    Shop bought beer in a Swing top bottle

    Generally I don't and to be honest I've been using some of my bottles for years without changing the ring. One or two have not felt tight when clipping them shut so I do then change the ring.

    Shop bought beer in a Swing top bottle

    Samale: That price was for 30 bottles, it was a mixture of various styles and as mentioned some were 330ml and some 500ml The shipping cost is fixed for 30 bottles regardless of the size. I just checked, their website says Euros 13.79 for Ireland.

    Shop bought beer in a Swing top bottle

    Just a quick update on buying from Biermarket.de It's still quite a painful process but at least it has got cheaper! For my most recent order I tried their new way of sending an order by clicking a button to send a screenshot of the shopping cart. When I had no response for over a week I...
