What are beer boxes / polypins?
A polypin of beer sometimes termed a 'bag in box' is a beer container consisting of a plastic bag in a rigid cardboard box, and a dispensing tap. Lasts approx seven days from opening if kept in a cool environment. The polypins are prepared without sediment, termed “bright” or “re-racked”. The beer does not require a period of settling when delivered and can be drunk straight away, however we do recommend it be stored in cellar temperature (13c or 56F). Hobsons polypins are ideal for parties and functions, we sell polypins in two sizes: 20 Litres = approx 36 pints 10 Litres = approx 18 pints

Why do Bottled Beers have sediment?
Hobsons bottle beers are conditioned with sediment allowing the beer to generate a small amount of fizz,creating tip-top condition in the glass. Yeast sediment is retained in the bottom of the bottle if poured carefully resulting in crystal clear beer. Please note we have two bottled beers which are NOT bottle conditioned, Twisted Spire are carbonated products.
