Given the surprise nature of the advent calendar we have not produced a full list of all of the beers that are offered however a complete list of the beers that make up the advent calendar can be provided upon request.

We make every effort to supply the goods as shown on the website, however if we can’t supply certain beers we may need to substitute them with alternative beers of equal or better standard and value. In this case:

When you place your order at the end of the online Check Out process (e.g. when you click "Complete Order"), you are making an offer to buy the relevant goods from us. We will acknowledge receipt of this offer by email ("Acknowledgement Email"). The Acknowledgment Email does not, however, mean that your order has been accepted.

We may contact you to say that we do not accept your order. This is typically for the following reasons:

We will only accept your order when we dispatch the goods to you and send you an email to confirm this ("Confirmation and Dispatch Email"). At this point, a legally binding contract will be in place between you and us.

Without affecting your right of cancellation set out below, you can withdraw your order for the goods at no cost any time before we send the Confirmation and Dispatch Email for those goods. Please contact us on the contact details provided if you wish to withdraw your offer before the goods are dispatched.
