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.
Some offer seasonal brews, such as pumpkin-inspired beers around Halloween and traditional strong Christmas ale. Many support local charities and community groups.
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. Plus, each shipment includes a mystery beer to introduce you to styles and flavors you might not have tried before.
Beer Drop offers different subscriptions that can be tailored to your budget and tastes. The basic plan is the cheapest and includes five beers from various breweries, two cans of each type. If you’d like a little bit more flexibility in your selection, then try the Beer Drop Plus.
The Beer Drop team is dedicated to supporting independent breweries and promoting beer education. The subscription model is flexible and allows you to cancel at any time without incurring any fees. You can also earn rewards by referring friends to Beer Drop, following them on social media or reviewing their 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 subscriptions focus on specific beer types while others are general. They can be a great way for you 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, they donate to a non profit each month.
City Brew Tours Beer Club offers another great option to beer lovers. They take you on a virtual road trip by highlighting cities’ brew options and offering virtual tastings of the selections. 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 ideal for beer connoisseurs and collectors of rare, limited-release beers. You can refine your palate, learn about different styles and avoid those you don’t like. Plus, you can save yourself the time and expense of searching for these bottles on your own.
Each month, you’ll receive two 750ml bottles (similar to wine bottles), each from a different brewery. 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 cancel or pause the subscription at any time. 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
These clubs are a great way for beer lovers to try new beers and have fun without having to visit a brewery. They also support local charities and businesses. For example, one club in NYC sells a mango-lassi flavored beer that benefits the non-profit SapnaNYC that 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. They also offer a flexible, no-commitment membership with monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, or annual shipments. Most allow you to cancel or pause delivery and most ship for 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.
