The HB&B Big Beery Advent Calendar 2023 (24-can box)
*** PLEASE READ THE INFO IN RED BELOW BEFORE ORDERING :) ***
Back yet again, for its NINTH year (can you believe it?), it's the 2023 HB&B Big Beery Advent Calendar!
The HB&B Advent was the very first beer advent calendar on sale in the UK back in 2015, setting the benchmark for all others to aspire to... 2023's calendar will be greater than ever - accept no imitations!
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT? Our selection is can-only, jammed full of the best, freshest and most in-demand beers in the world, across all styles of beer, from our favourite breweries of the year: ALL KILLER, NO STOCKING FILLER. Last year's calendar showcased beers from Beak, Baron, Finback, DEYA, Kees, Pressure Drop, Sureshot, Track, Verdant and many, many more, all thoughtfully planned out to ensure you're drinking the perfect beer each day - right beer, right time. Expect to see another amazing line-up from the most exciting breweries on the planet this time around.
BONUS VOUCHER! Along with these 24 incredible beers, beautifully packaged and ready to gift (to a special someone or yourself), the box also includes a £10 voucher to use at the HB&B online shop in January so that the recipient can start their year off with a bang. And as always, it comes with the HB&B promise that you won't find a better beer advent out there.

- Our advents are already heavily discounted, so discounts/rewards codes or Beer Miles cannot be used for this item (sorry).

- Regretfully we cannot guarantee that all beers will be vegan-friendly - unfortunately we are not able to swap out individual beers.

Free UK shipping:
All orders over £79.95 have free shipping (UK Mainland only, excluding Scottish Highlands, Islands and Northern Ireland).
Royal Mail Tracked & Priority 1-2 day Weekday Shipping:
We charge a standard shipping fee of £4.95 or £7.95, depending on the size and weight of your order, for orders to the UK mainland. This is calculated at checkout. For example, small hot sauce orders are despatched via Royal Mail and large, heavy beer and wine orders are despatched via DHL. We subsidise all shipping costs to keep the price as low as possible, but it may still work out slightly more expensive than some other courier services – however, it offers your purchases the best chance of arriving in one piece!
For London deliveries, you have the option of using our next-day carbon-neutral courier partner Packfleet which is charged at £5.95.
We can deliver large and heavy orders to the Scottish Highlands for £20.95 (our courier charges a higher rate for these regions). Smaller orders will be despatched via Royal Mail at the standard quoted rate. We regret that we cannot deliver internationally.
Orders placed before 12pm Mon-Fri will be dispatched on the same day. Orders placed at weekends will be dispatched on the next working day. The vast majority of orders sent via DHL are received the following working weekday but please allow up to 3 working days in the event of an unexpected delay with the courier service. It will provide you with tracking information and options should you need to rearrange delivery. If you are not home at the time of delivery, DHL will attempt to leave your order safe with a neighbour where possible, rather than returning it to us. Any questions regarding your delivery, please get in touch.
Same Day Delivery (weekdays, London only):
This premium across-town service is available for London-based customers who need their order ASAP. Orders received before 4:30pm weekdays will be dispatched the same day; orders received after that will be dispatched the following week day. Orders received on weekends will be sent the following working weekday. Costs are automatically calculated based on distance and time of day, and usually delivered within three hours.
Pick Up (Peckham/Deptford shops):
Local customers can choose to collect from our shops - you'll find the Pick Up tab on the Delivery page in the check out. After your pick up order is placed, we will be in touch to let you know when your order is ready to collect - most orders will be coming over from our warehouse, so we will let you know when your order is ready to collect. Unfortunately we cannot hold orders for collection for longer than 7 days unless by prior arrangement.
Build A Box:
We have disabled this option due to customers confusing this with free shipping. If you would like to make multiple orders and get them shipped together, please select "pick up at shop" as your shipping option, then email us to let us know you'd like them set aside for future shipping.
We use thick walled cardboard boxes and paper padding for most orders - we try to avoid plastic wherever possible but will sometimes reuse bubble wrap and biodegradable chips from goods that have been sent to us.
Very occasionally, an order may arrive damaged due to courier mishandling. We prefer to offer credit on these rare occasions rather than use wasteful packaging on every delivery. If your delivery arrives damaged, please send us a photo of the package and broken contents, and we will arrange a credit or, if practical, a replacement.
If you have changed your mind about your order, please contact us ASAP via email or telephone (+44 20 7450 0284) within 14 working days. We regret that due to the nature of our products (designed to be consumed fresh), we are unable to offer refunds after 14 days. The items must be then be returned in their original condition and packaging within 14 days to receive a refund. Ensuring the safe return of the package and postage cost will be the responsibility of you, the customer.
Title is retained with Hop Burns & Black Ltd until payment in full is received, and until you, the customer, takes final delivery of the goods.
We make every effort to supply goods as shown on our web site, however occasionally we do have to substitute products for an alternative of equal or greater value, where a valid substitute is available. In the event this needs to happen, we will always attempt to contact you first.
