Why Beer Subscriptions Are a Great Gift Idea
If you’re a beer lover, or you want to give a gift that is unique and exciting, consider a beer subscription. These boxes deliver new and exciting brews right to the door, no road trip required.

Beer Club of the Month
There are many beer subscriptions available, but the best ones let you choose which brews to receive. Some subscriptions focus on specific beer types while others are general. They can be a great way for you to discover new brews.
The Duration Beer Club for example sends out 12 cans per month of its core beers or collaborations. It’s also a great way for you to learn more about ale drinking. Each can is decorated with artwork from a local artists. Plus, they donate to a non profit each month.
City Brew Tours Beer Club offers another great option to beer lovers. They take you on an imaginary road trip, highlighting the brew options of cities and offering virtual samplings. If you don’t want to commit to a long term commitment, there are plenty of other beer subscriptions that make it easy to cancel or modify your order.
Rare Beer Club
These clubs are great for collectors or connoisseurs of limited-release, rare beer. 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 will receive two 750ml beer bottles (similar in size to wine bottles) from two different breweries each month. The beers selected by the team of beer experts often include brewery-exclusives that you cannot find anywhere else.
You can customize your membership unlike other subscriptions by selecting the number of bottles you want or a specific beer each month. You can also cancel your subscription or pause it whenever you like. The company behind the club offers excellent customer service and receives a lot positive feedback from its subscribers. They’re also very good at keeping the prices of their boxes 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 provide a fun and convenient way to sample new beers without having to go to a brewery or even leave your home. They also support local charities and businesses. One club in NYC, for example, sells a beer with a mango-lassi flavor to benefit the non-profit SapnaNYC which helps low-income South Asian Women.
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. These subscriptions offer a flexible no-commitment option with monthly, quarterly, or yearly shipments. Most make it easy to cancel or pause your delivery, and most 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. These can be expensive but are worth it to discover more styles of ale.
