Howard's Creek Shipping Policy, Time & Transit

Our Beer Cheese and other perishables, such as Browing's Country Ham products and Ruth Hunt Chocolates, are shipped in a custom cooler box with the appropriate gel packs or dry ice. The shipping cost calculated in your cart includes the box price, gels, dry ice (if needed), and shipping costs.

We require a $25.00 minimum order. It's best for both of us!

In Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada, other shipping rules apply.

Howard's Creek has shipped for 17 years, on time, every time!

But we know logistics well, and we have always gotten your items to you cold, on time, 99.9% every time, even if there is a rare delay. (Holiday’s and severe weather, cold or hot, affect even the best shippers!)
