Beer Club of the Month
There are many beer subscriptions available, but the best ones let you choose which brews to receive. Some beer subscriptions are aimed at specific types of beer, while others are more general and are a great way to discover new brews.
The Duration Beer Club, for example, sends 12 cans of its core beers each month. It’s a great way to expand your ale-drinking skills, and each can also features art from a local artist. Plus, they donate to a non profit each month.
City Brew Tours Beer Club can be a great option for beer enthusiasts. 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 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’ll get two 750 ml bottles of beer (similar to wine bottles) each month from two different breweries. The beers are selected by a team of beer experts and often include brewery exclusives that you can’t 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 or pause your subscription whenever you want. 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 offer a convenient and fun way to sample new brews without having to leave home or visit a brewery. They also help support local businesses and charities. 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 subscribtions let you try a wide variety of styles. From traditional ales to hoppy beers and sour beers to lagers, dark beers and lagers. 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.
