Delivery Info

Hilda delivers

There are three options for fulfilment of orders: collect from the brewery; direct delivery within a circa 30 mile radius of Leominster (Ludlow – Worcester – Symonds Yat – New Radnor); despatch by courier.

The brewery shop is open Fridays 10-5, with extended hours on Tasting Days (first Friday of the month) if you wish to collect an online order, or come in to browse and select your beers at the shop.  Other days for collection are possible by arrangement.

Local deliveries take place each Wednesday and Thursday, generally heading west and south of Leominster on a Wednesday and north and east of Leominster on a Thursday.  We sometimes consolidate all home deliveries to one of these days.  The radius of deliveries is around 30 miles from HR6 0LX.  When you add your postcode at the basket stage, the system will indicate if you fall within the direct delivery area.  Postcodes are:
HR1-9 inclusive; WR1-8 inclusive; WR13-15 inclusive; WR78; WR99; LD7; LD8; SY8 although we may restrict some of these postcodes as our delivery rounds dictate.

For bright, draught beer, this is prepared on the day of collection, despatch or delivery or the afternoon before.  We recommend consuming bright beer packs within 5-6 days of collection or receipt.  Bright beer packs are prepared to order to be at their freshest when you are ready to drink the beer.

“Coming soon” as indicated on draught beer indicates that the beer is on our brewing plan for the month ahead, hence we will liaise with you on receipt of your order as to when it will be precisely available.

To despatch beer nationally, we work with a Hereford based courier, Mercian Logistics, part of the national operator APC.  Beer is generally despatched on Wednesdays to arrive on Thursdays.  APC offers an overnight, fragile, liquid service.  An adult over 18 must be present at the delivery address to accept the package unless you tell us otherwise in the delivery instructions, such as leaving the goods in a safe place.

We pass on courier charges at cost but regrettably we do not (yet) have an advantageous rate.  These rates relate to Monday to Friday delivery.

Packages up to 20kg = £11.95
Packages 20-25kg = £13.95
Packages 25-30kg = £15.95
Packages 30-40kg = £17.95
Packages above 40kg = £19.95

These rates apply to England and Wales.  Delivery to Northern Ireland, Scotland, Isle of Wight, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands may incur an additional carriage charge. If this is the case, we will contact you on receipt of your order.
