After a long January, that’s probably been ‘dry’ for quite a few of our members (where alcohol is concerned anyway!) we thought we’d bring you a money-saving offer on something in February that we all enjoy after a long ride – BEER. Fellow Bermondsey residents Hiver have been brewing a delicious honey beer that’s big on flavour and helps our little Bee friends too – which in turn helps ALL of us. For the whole of February LCC members can remove (a little) of the guilt of beer swilling with a 10% discount.
Thirsty for more? Read on to hear the story bee-hind(!) Hiver and how to obtain your discount.
Hannah Rhodes, founder and owner of Hiver Beers started her career in the drinks industry working for Meantime Brewery; the home of craft beer in the UK. But with a passion for bees and beers, she decided to strike out alone and develop her own honey beer.
A fascination for honey and its production led her to complete an Introduction to Beekeeping course with the London Honey Company, closely followed by a membership with the London Beekeeping Association. Honey and beer have been matched since brewing began, so it was only a matter of time before Hannah began brewing with this delicious ingredient and creating what is a lovely drop!
Hiver use urban and rural honey to create an all-British speciality beer that's long matured and unpasteurised. They tone down the hops and support the natural honey flavours with an organic speciality malt, making for a moreish and refreshing blonde beer.
If you work up an appetite cycling you should enjoy Hiver with salty treats such a cheese, salted cashews, some lemon roasted chicken or spicy Bombay mix.
LCC members can get 10% discount on single bottles, 6 or 12 packs, and cases of 24 of Hiver. Simply visit the online shop, place your order and use the LCC code (which can be found on our dedicated member’s page – link available on the back of your membership card)
Please note this offer is only available for over 18s and all offers and discounts are made to members entirely at the discretion of the third-party supplier, from which we do not gain or have any control.
Suitable for vegetarians - drink responsibly.
