First of all, we want to say an enormous and heartfelt THANK YOU to every single one of you who has bought beer from us directly over the last year. I know we’ve said it a lot, and that everyone else is saying it too, but we honestly have been overwhelmed by the generosity and support you lot have shown us. Hopefully that’s not diminished by saying it so often!

We wanted to let you know we’re making a few changes to how our webshop and home deliveries work. We’re starting working with a new courier for local deliveries; this will allow us to cover much more ground, and also move to a next-day delivery service. As you know, we’re a small team and with deliveries to pubs starting up again, alongside the associated extra brewing and packaging, we won’t be able to keep up with all the home deliveries as well. We hope you’ll understand the reasons behind these changes, and continue to support us. If you have any questions please feel free to drop us a line on

First up, as pubs start to re-open (YAY!) ‘Help Us Help Pubs’ is drawing to a close. Thank you so much for showing love for your local with all your nominations – it’s been great to see the pubs people have selected, and heart-warming to let the publicans know they’ve been nominated as someone’s favourite pub! We’re passing on the credit they’ve accumulated through nominations, and hopefully you’ll be able to drink Good Chemistry on the bar of your faves when they open.

Along with ‘Help Us Help Pubs’ finishing, we’re also bringing an end to free local delivery on Thursdays and Fridays. There’ll now be a small charge for delivery to Bristol as we’re working with the new courier (splitting deliveries between them and us). This means we can cover WAY more of the local area than we’ve been able to do ourselves, just using our own drayman Liam. Orders will also now be processed on a next-day delivery basis – so no more waiting until the end of the week for your beer!

For delivery ahead of the weekend we’ll need your order by 2pm on Thursday, and anything received after that will be sent out the following Monday. We don’t want your cans sitting in the couriers’ warehouse over the weekend, so we’ll hold off sending orders received on Thursday afternoon and Friday until Monday (to get to you on Tuesday).

So for the following postcodes there will now be a £2 charge for delivery:

BS1-7, BS8 1, BS8 2, BS8 4, BS9, BS10, BS13-16, BS32, BS34-37

Outside of these areas, delivery will remain £5.99 via courier for the time being.

The other exciting change is that we can now send mini-kegs via the courier to the BS postcodes specified above. So if you’re having a barbeque, or just fancy some Pure Optimism or Shadow Future on draught from your fridge, this is available across a much wider area.

The GCHQ Can Shop will be available as a pick-up point for webshop orders, and will also be open every week on Wednesday and Thursday (11am – 4pm) and Friday (11am – 6pm). This is until mid-May/Stage Three of the govt’s ‘roadmap’, when the brewery tap will also be opening, so hours will adjust then.

We’re also delighted to announce that The Good Measure Can Shop will be re-opening next Thursday 15th April, and will be open Thursday and Friday (4-8pm) and Saturday (12-5pm) until we’re able to open as a pub again (hooray!), also in Stage Three. Although you won’t be able to pre-order for pick-up from the pub, they’ll have our whole range, including our new recycled cool bags, plus TGM t-shirts, glasses and limited edition prints of Dave’s artwork that hangs in the pub. Everything you could need to recreate TGM at home!

Cheers, thank you, and see you soon,

Kelly & Bob, and Amber, Dan and Liam
