Hear from Hop Lords: how they are currently operating, how you can order and their vision for supporting local in the future!

“We keep as safe as possible by only being open for a few hours every Friday and Saturday afternoon’s 12-3pm and ask people to sanitise their hands-on entry, wear a mask unless exempt and limit the shop to only 2 customers at a time. We only accept contactless payment. I also have the webshop (linked below). All orders placed through the week for home delivery are delivered on Friday’s after 3pm. Delivery is free on orders over £30 within a 10-mile radius of Worcester. I will go further as well if customers get in touch first. We also ship national on next day delivery. We also can offer click and collect at checkout if people want to but if someone is walking into to town to buy to takeaway I think people like to peruse all the stock before choosing. You can do that on the webshop but it’s nice to look at the beers in their physical form with all the lovely artwork on beers nowadays.”


“Supporting local has always been important but Covid has made people really understand how important it is. I’ve decided when I get the pubs I have open I’m going to stock as much locally sourced beers, spirits, wines etc etc as I can. There’s some of the best pale ales and IPA’s in the country being made up the road in Cheltenham. Astley vineyard near stourport make exceptional wines. Then there’s chase distillery in Hereford and Piston gin in Worcester. I still think HPA from Wye Valley brewery is world class when it comes to real ale. There’s loads to support locally and I’m going to support them all way more than I have in the past.”
