Mini-Cask Club – Five Reasons To Join!

Back in June, we launched the UK’s first mini-cask or mini-keg subscription service – the Fyne Ales Mini-Cask Club, and over the last three months we’ve gone from strength to strength as our membership has grown and we’ve produced some awesome small-batch specials for our members.

But we’ve got plenty of room to grow, and plenty of slots for new members, so here’s five reasons you should sign up and get ten litres of fresh beer delivered every month for just £40!



Of course, the number one reason to join Mini-Cask Club is to get over 17 pints of awesome, fresh, cask beer delivered to your door for you to enjoy at home. Our 5-litre mini-casks are filled with the exact same beer, in the exact same way as their bigger siblings, meaning you can get the proper cask experience in the comfort of your living room, kitchen, garden, or anywhere else (okay, maybe not ANYWHERE else, but you know what we mean).

To find out more about our awesome mini-casks, check out our blog on mini-cask vs mini-keg which goes into more detail on our process for brewing and filling mini-casks.


Mini-Cask Club membership saves you 15% compared to manually ordering from our online shop every month – and that’s if you order two mini-casks in one go, if you order one at a time, you save even more.

Membership is just £40 per month for ten litres of cask beer – less than £2.30 per pint of proper ale to enjoy at home!


We recently surveyed current Mini-Cask Club members to find out how we’re doing and what we can do better and so far, it seems it’s going pretty well!

MCC members gave us a 4.9 out of 5 for beer quality and a 4.9 out of 5 for overall experience so far, with comments including (but certainly not limited to):

– “Wouldn’t change anything, brilliant service.”
– “No improvements needed. Excellent value.”
– “Only thing I would change is getting even more beer every month”


We offer two types of MCC members, one for lovers of our flagship beer, Jarl, and one for folk who want to be the first to try our latest small-batch brews.

All Jarl Membership is exactly what you think it is – ten litres of our 3.8% Citra session blonde ale every single month, for those who can’t get enough of our champion brew.

Discovery Membership pairs five litres of Jarl with five litres of a brand new beer every month that is sent to MCC members to try before anyone else!

Our three MCC Discovery brews so far (Hopes & Fears, Everyone Loves Strata and Pebble Beach) have received rave reviews – averaging 3.75 out of 5 on Untappd (compared to Jarl’s current 3.6 rating) AND we recently polled members on what styles they want to see for future Discovery beers, so they can have a say in what they get delivered and enjoy in coming months.

And if there’s ever a Discovery brew you really want to try or you maybe don’t fancy and want some extra Jarl, you can switch between memberships for a month by dropping us an email!


We like to say thank-you to our MCC members for their loyalty, which is why we include wee bonus treats in deliveries from time-to-time. In our first box we teamed up with Snaffling Pig to send some awesome crackling snacks to members and in September we gave away some awesome custom MCC stickers!

We’ve got lots of plans for future rewards – you never know what might turn up with your mini-casks!

So there’s five big reasons to sign up to Mini-Cask Club, and that’s only the start of it. Three months into our adventure and we’re aiming to get bigger and better, with more perks, more exclusivity and importantly – more members! So if you’re craving quality cask ale, for a very reasonable price, in the comfort of your own home, join MCC today!
