Chantry Brewery Rotherham
Chantry Brewery are based in Rotherham and have a wide range of beers, and even a newly brewed lager on offer. Their range is changing weekly due to supply issues but you can check what they have available on their website. Twelve bottles, which can be mixed are £25 delivered. They also do mini kegs (5L/8.8 pints) and three different types of Ciders.
Writers recommendation: Kaldo is currently out of stock but it's worth the wait. Give the New York Pale a go in the meantime. A nice 3.9% ABV pale ale, it's very refreshing.
