‘Desk Beer’ Office-Delivery Service Makes Fridays Less Painful


There’s a start-up in London that’s doing a public service. Namely, one of the “OH MY GOD WHY IS THIS CLOCK MOVING SO SLOW HOW IS IT STILL ONLY 11 O’CLOCK”-variety.

The premise behind DeskBeers is simple: work sucks and beer doesn’t, so why not have local craft brews delivered to your office every Friday to help move things along? According to the website, DeskBeers is dedicated to sourcing only the highest quality local and seasonal beers for “not much” more than you would find at a pub — 12 bottles for £2.50 (around $4 USD), plus tax.


The budding company made its first official delivery back in October at what looks like Vice Magazine’s UK offices and it has big plans for expansion. In addition to providing hardworking Londonites with a range of brews from IPAs to stouts, Desk Beers also hopes to start offering deliveries throughout the rest of the week.

Here’s the DeskBeers facebooktumblr, and twitter, so you all can start nagging for a U.S. branch. Come on, we’ve got work to do.
