Di Bruno Bros

DI BRUNO BROS Visit Site

Cost:

From $49.99 to $69.99 per month

Di Bruno Bros. began in 1939 with a small shop in the Italian Market of South Philadelphia. Today, with several retail locations and an easy-to-shop online storefront, Di Bruno Bros. puts the finest cheeses in the world within reach.

Just look at the photos on their website (especially under the "More About Us" section of the "About Us" page. Want to know more about how each cheese is made, or to see what a gourmet cheese store looks like inside? If your mouth isn't watering in the first few seconds, you probably aren't a fan of cheese!

Di Bruno Bros. offers three cheese clubs, all available in subscriptions of 3, 6, or 12 months.

  • Cheese Pairing 101: for $49.99 per month, recipients get a cheese matched with another treat for optimal taste. Previous pairings include Asiago Stravecchio with speck and Truffled Honey, and triple-crčme Delice with cinnamon-cocoa pecans and amarena cherries. This ships during the third week of the month.
  • Kilo: for $57.99 per month, recipients get - you guessed it - approximately one kilogram of cheese in wedge form. As many competitor clubs only send out 1.5 pounds per shipment, the Kilo Club may give you more for your money (remember that 1 kg. = 2.2 lbs.). Past offerings have included Cravero Parmigiano Reggiano and L'amuse Gouda. This ships during the fourth week of the month.
  • Eat Like a Cheesemonger: for $69.99 per month, you receive a shipment personally selected by Di Bruno Bros. VP of Culinary Pioneering and third-generation owner, Emilio Mignucci. What would a world-renowned cheese expert eat? You'll find out with each surprise shipment; some combinations may include fresh cheeses, compotes and accentuating oils, or caviar, cheese, and foie medallions. This ships during the second week of the month.

Although we were initially confused by the pricing on the Di Bruno Bros. website, we eventually figured out that the monthly cost doesn't change based on the size of the subscription: whether you subscribe for 3, 6, or 12 months, you'll pay between $49.99 and $69.99 per month, depending on which club you select. On each club's main page, the price you see defaults to the 3-month total cost; use the dropdown box if you'd like to see the total for a longer subscription period.

All of Di Bruno Bros. cheese clubs ship for free.

Membership Overview:

  • Cheese Selection: Di Bruno Bros selects the cheese and pairings
  • Duration: 3, 6, or 12 months
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Shipping: Free

We were not surprised at all to see glowing customer reviews for everything Di Bruno Bros. sells. Amazing taste, excellent pairings, and superb attention to customer satisfaction are just a few of the compliments we saw from happy Di Bruno Bros. customers. With an iron-clad guarantee for every order - "We will promptly refund your money, re-ship or replace your order, or make any other arrangements to uphold our devotion to quality and a positive experience for you" - there's no downside to the clubs offered by these cheese experts. Just be sure to contact them within 48 hours of receipt if there is any issue with the shipment.

Simply put, it's hard to find a cheese club better than Di Bruno Bros. We highly recommend them for your cheese club membership - for a lucky recipient or for yourself.

Beekman 1802

BEEKMAN 1802 Visit Site

Cost:

$48 per month

Beekman 1802 was created in 2008 on a 200-year-old farm in upstate New York. Founders Josh and Brent work in collaboration with local artisans, craftspeople, and farmers, helping them grow their businesses and producing goods seasonally.

If you love artisanal-quality goat cheese, Beekman 1802 is the Cheese Club for you. Every cheese comes from Farmer John's goats, and varieties include Kaastavond ("Christmas Eve Cheese"), Chevre, Blak, and Ghoast.

Membership Overview:

  • Cheese Selection: Goat cheese in assorted varieties
  • Duration: Quarterly
  • Frequency: January, April, July, October
  • Shipping: Included in the cost

When we visited the site, we were given a pop-up offer of a 15% discount on our first order if we subscribed to their email newsletter. Unfortunately, the fine print said that the discount wasn't applicable to Cheese Club subscriptions.

That discount would have been very helpful: Beekman 1802 is one of the most expensive Cheese Clubs on the market. Their website left us a little confused by their pricing options: a 3-month ongoing membership (i.e. recurring billing until you cancel it) for $48 per shipment, or a 12-month non-renewing subscription for $190. But, that 12-month subscription is still only shipped quarterly, so we were left a little confused. Both plans work out to be roughly $48 per shipment of cheese, with no additional shipping costs. Apparently, the only difference is whether you want to have an ongoing membership that renews until you cancel or whether you want to give a total of four shipments to yourself or someone else.

What if you don't wind up liking your goat cheese from Beekman 1802? Their return policy states that food items are not returnable, which is reasonable. They also state that they want their "Neighbors" - how they refer to their customers - to be "entirely thrilled" with anything they receive from Beekman 1802, and that they will do their best to take care of any issues that arise. That's a little vague, but their overall reputation is sound enough that it can be taken at face value.

We love the attention to quality and local production offered by Beekman 1802 and think that, for those who love goat cheese, their Cheese Club will be a winner. On the other hand, most people looking for a membership for themselves or as a gift are likely looking for more variety, wider shipping options, and lower prices.

However, not all cheese clubs are alike and it's important to understand the policies before you sign up. Important aspects of a cheese club membership to be aware of are:

  • Flexibility. Will you be able to select the length of membership and frequency that fits your needs and budget?
  • Cost. What can you expect to pay for the cheese club that best meets your needs? Can you make monthly payments or is a flat fee required?
  • Satisfaction Policy. If you aren't happy with the timeliness, quality or taste are you able to stop the membership and receive any portion of the cost back?
