“What is the Best Beer of the Month Club?” This is the question we hear most often and frankly, it’s not an easy one to answer. There are so many Beer of the Month Clubs to choose from.
12 Bottles of Domestic Microbrewed Beer
A majority of the beer clubs offer 12 bottles of domestic microbrewed beer delivered every month. You usually get between 2 and 4 different types of beer from 1 – 2 different microbreweries. Some of our favorite beer clubs we have tried — and like — include:
- The Original Microbrewed Beer Club by Gourmet Monthly Clubs (starts at $39.95 per month)
- The Original Craft Beer Club by Craft Beer Club (starts at $39.00 per month)
- Beer of the Month Club by Clubs of America (starts at $39.95 per month)
They all make a very nice gift, as they come packaged securely to keep the bottles safe during shipping. And they all include a newsletter which discusses the featured beer selections and breweries in depth and offers pairing suggestions, recipes, and other fun beer facts. Any beer enthusiast will love this gift delivered each month.
12 Bottles of International Microbrewed Beer
International Beer Club by Gourmet Monthly Clubs (starts at $48.95 per month)
You may also want to try the International & Domestic Variety Beer Club by Gourmet Clubs (starts at $45.95 per month), which includes 6 bottles of domestic beer and 6 bottles of international beer selections.
24 Bottles of Domestic Microbrewed Beer
You get twice as much beer and can usually save on shipping by ordering a full case of beer at a time. But only a few clubs offer this option. Check out The Original Craft Beer Club by Craft Beer Club (starts at $74.11 per month) if you want to order a full case of microbrews each month.
750ml Bottles of Beer
A totally different concept is a Beer of the Month Club which offers 750ml bottles, often cork-finished. We have tried The Rare Beer Club by Gourmet Monthly Clubs (starts at $48.95 per month). It’s definitely unique! This high-end Beer of the Month Club features limited-release, celebratory, artisanal beers from some of beer critic Michael Jackson’s favorite breweries.
