Why Beer Subscriptions Are a Great Gift Idea
Consider a subscription to beer if you love beer or want to give someone a unique and exciting gift. These boxes deliver exciting and new brews to your door. No need to drive anywhere.
Some offer seasonal brews, such as pumpkin-inspired beers around Halloween and traditional strong Christmas ale. Many also support local communities and charities.
Beer Drop is a great option if you want a beer subscription that will customize your deliveries according to your tastes. Their team of experts monitors your purchasing trends to ensure that only the beers you prefer are delivered. Each shipment includes a mysterious beer to introduce new styles and flavors.
Beer Drop offers a range of different subscriptions to fit your tastes and budget. The basic plan is the cheapest and includes five beers from various breweries, two cans of each type. If you prefer a bit more flexibility, try their Beer Drop Plus category.

They also offer a flexible subscription model, which allows you to cancel anytime without any fees or charges. You can earn rewards on your purchases by referring a friend, following Beer Drop socially, or reviewing the products.
Beer Club of the Month
There are a lot of beer subscriptions to choose from, but the best ones allow you to decide which brews you want to get. Some beer subscriptions are aimed at specific types of beer, while others are more general and are a great way to discover new brews.
For example, the Duration Beer Club sends 12 cans a month of their core beers and collaborations. It’s a great way to expand your ale-drinking skills, and each can also features art from a local artist. Plus, each month they donate to non-profits.
City Brew Tours Beer Club offers another great option to beer lovers. They take you to a virtual roadtrip by highlighting brews from different cities and offering virtual tastings. If you do not want to commit for a long time, there are other beer subscriptions which allow you to cancel or change your order.
Rare Beer Club
These clubs are ideal for beer connoisseurs and collectors of rare, limited-release beers. You’ll be able to refine your palate and educate yourself while avoiding styles that you don’t appreciate. You can also save time and money by not having to search for these bottles yourself.
You’ll get two 750 ml bottles of beer (similar to wine bottles) each month from two different breweries. The beers selected by the team of beer experts often include brewery-exclusives that you cannot find anywhere else.
Unlike other subscriptions you can customize the membership by choosing a number of bottles each month or selecting a particular brew. You can also cancel your subscription or pause it whenever you like. The company behind this club has stellar customer service, and they get a lot of positive feedback from their subscribers. The prices of their boxes are also kept low. They even give a portion of their proceeds to local charities (e.g., SapnaNYC, which helps low-income South Asian immigrant women).
Craft Beer Club
For beer lovers, these clubs offer a convenient and fun way to sample new brews without having to leave home or visit a brewery. These clubs also support local businesses and charities. One club in NYC sells beer with mango-lassi flavors to benefit SapnaNYC, a non-profit that helps South Asian women who are low-income.
Some of these subscriptions come with additional gifts such as a subscription to a magazine devoted to craft beer, a heavy-duty opener and custom koozies. They offer a flexible membership that is free of commitment. You can choose to receive shipments monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly. Most companies make it easy to pause or cancel your delivery. They also ship free within the US.
The best beer subscriptions allow you to sample a variety of styles from traditional ales, to hoppy and sour beers, to lagers and darker beers. Also included are tasting notes, brewery details, and food pairing suggestions. Although they can be pricey, it is worth it if want to try out more styles of beer.
