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 like pumpkin-inspired beers for Halloween and strong Christmas ales. 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 a range of different subscriptions to fit your tastes and budget. The basic subscription plan is the most affordable and comes with five beers from different breweries (two cans of each style). If you want a little more flexibility, choose the Beer Drop Plus category.
The Beer Drop Team is dedicated to promoting beer education and supporting independent breweries. The Beer Drop team offers a flexible subscription that allows you cancel at any time, without 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 many beer subscriptions available, but the best ones let you choose which brews to receive. Some are focused on specific beer types, while others are general and can be a good way to discover new brews.
The Duration Beer Club for example sends out 12 cans per month of its core beers or 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 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 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 your membership by choosing the number of bottles or selecting a specific brew 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 donate a portion of the proceeds to local charities.
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 help 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.
A few of these beer subscriptions offer additional gifts like a year subscription to a craft-centric magazine, a heavy-duty bottle opener, and custom koozies. They also offer a flexible, no-commitment membership with monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, or annual shipments. Most companies make it easy to pause or cancel your delivery. They also 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.
