Col­lec­tion and use of per­sonal information

We do not col­lect any per­sonal data about you on this web­site, apart from infor­ma­tion which you vol­un­teer (for exam­ple by using our online enquiry form or pur­chas­ing a voucher, beer club sub­scrip­tion or other prod­uct).

A “cookie” is a string of infor­ma­tion which assigns you a unique iden­ti­fier that we store on your com­puter. Your browser then pro­vides that unique iden­ti­fier to use each time you sub­mit a query to the Site. We use cook­ies on the Site to, among other things, keep track of ser­vices you have used, record reg­is­tra­tion infor­ma­tion, record your user pref­er­ences, keep you logged into the Site, facil­i­tate pur­chase pro­ce­dures, and track the pages you visit. Cook­ies help us under­stand how the Site is being used and improve your user experience.

Our Cook­ies

Our cook­ies are “first-​party cook­ies”, and can be either per­ma­nent or tem­po­rary. These are nec­es­sary cook­ies, with­out which the Site won’t work prop­erly or be able to pro­vide cer­tain fea­tures and func­tion­al­i­ties.

Per­son­al­iza­tion cook­ies are used to rec­og­nize repeat vis­i­tors to the Site. We use these cook­ies to record your brows­ing his­tory, the pages you have vis­ited, and your set­tings and pref­er­ences each time you visit the Site.

Secu­rity Cookies

Secu­rity cook­ies help iden­tify and pre­vent secu­rity risks. We use these cook­ies to authen­ti­cate users and pro­tect user data from unau­tho­rized parties.

Site Man­age­ment Cookies

Site man­age­ment cook­ies are used to main­tain your iden­tity or ses­sion on the Site so that you are not logged off unex­pect­edly, and any infor­ma­tion you enter is retained from page to page. These cook­ies can­not be turned off indi­vid­u­ally, but you can dis­able all cook­ies in your browser.


Most browsers are set to accept cook­ies by default. How­ever, you can remove or reject cook­ies in your browser’s set­tings. Please be aware that such action could affect the avail­abil­ity and func­tion­al­ity of the Site.
