The Company

Beer Hawk is the UK’s leading online retailer of craft beer.  Our mission is to inspire everyone to discover their next favourite beer, and we pride ourselves on how well we deliver the world’s best craft beer to thirsty homes across Britain. We launched in summer 2012, and have experienced 9 years of staggering growth. 

We’re held together by our 4 core values:

1) We’re down to earth

2) We always make it better

4) We give a shit!

Beer Hawk was acquired by ZX Ventures in 2016 – a global disruptive growth group, incubator and venture capital team backed by one of the largest multinational companies in the world, Anheuser-Busch InBev.  In our opinion, this exceptional global backing gives us the best of both worlds: A northern E-Commerce start-up with global insight and potential career progression.
