Best Beer Clubs

Whether you're shopping for a gift for a beer lover that you know, or you like to try a variety of beers yourself, Beer Clubs can be a great idea. Many people enjoy a beer while watching the game, or simply relaxing with some friends. Breaking open and trying a new beer can be a fun and exciting event.

For people that enjoy trying new flavors from a number of breweries, beer clubs are a perfect idea. Periodic deliveries of different beers arrive at your doorstep ready to be enjoyed. The anticipation of the new flavor and location of the respective brewery can be a great source of entertainment. And sampling new beers throughout the year lets you try fun, seasonal flavors not found at the local grocery store.

Continued from above

However, all beer clubs are not the same. Before you give a gift of a beer club membership, or sign up for your own enjoyment, you should consider several factors. Some of these include:

  • Duration.  What is the beer club membership length? Can you choose one to fit your needs?
  • Cost.  How does the beer club membership fee compare with the competition?
  • Frequency.  How frequently will the beer arrive? Can you select monthly, every other month or quarterly as needed?
  • Beer Choices.  If you'll only drink light or pale beer and can't stomach the heavier formulas, it's important to know if the beer club offers you a choice.
  • Membership Minimums.  Are you required to stay in the beer club for a period of time, or can you cancel your membership at your discretion?
  • Shipping.  It's important to know what shipping charges, if any, will be applied.

What to Expect From a Beer-of-the-Month Club

There are clubs for reading books and clubs for learning to stitch, so why not a club that focuses on beer?

Beer-of-the-month clubs are designed to bring consumers a variety of beer straight to their doorsteps each month at a group rate, making it affordable and convenient. If you like beer, it is an ideal way to try a number of brands and flavors without ever having to leave the comfort of your home.

However, the number of beer-of-the-month clubs offered online is staggering and can leave the consumer confused as to which club would best fit their needs. So how does one select the ideal beer club?

First and foremost, do you like domestic or foreign, micro-brewed or mass-produced? Are you adventurous and enjoy trying new things, or would you prefer to stick with what you know and love? Once a decision is made about the kind of beer that is preferred, those preferences can be used to select a club which fits your taste criteria.

Next, decide how much you can reasonably spend for a membership. Most beer-of-the-month clubs offer several options when joining. Subscribers can select original flavors, which would consist of the kinds of beers most commonly sold on tap and by the bottle. These selections generally are pulled from various microbreweries in the United States. This kind of basic membership is the least expensive at around $20-25 per month depending on the club. However, for those who truly enjoy beer, an original selection may be a bit boring.

Other memberships, which include both domestic and foreign beers, often are the most tantalizing to the beer connoisseur, but also are the most costly at around $40 per month. It should be noted that the monthly membership fees do not include shipping and handling charges, which can range between $12-15 per shipment.

For the most elite beer drinkers, there also are several clubs which offer rare brands of beers, including limited-release brands by Elevation Brewing Co. and Jolly Pumpkin. These beers are not for the faint of heart. Creatively-prepared, they often can be placed in a traditional wine cellar and aged for a more refined taste.

Some clubs ship several times a month, so the additional shipping and handling can add up. Be sure to include the estimated cost of shipping when determining your beer-of-the-month club budget.

If you’ve never belonged to a beer-of-the-month club before, it might be a good idea to read reviews about each club out there, or ask friends and family for recommendations. Some clubs are members of the Better Business Bureau, which provides the customer with an extra layer of protection should they be dissatisfied with their club membership and unable to obtain a reasonable resolution to their grievance through the club itself.

Lastly, a smart thing to do when signing up as a member of any club is to fully read and review the terms of service, as well as the membership agreement. Some clubs require a minimum membership term, usually around three months. This is the minimum amount of time the member agrees to be in the club and pay the monthly dues and fees. Some also offer payment options and automatic-renewal options. Be clear on what the terms are before agreeing to them in order to avoid being deadlocked into an expensive club you may not be able to afford.
