Home Brew Bloggers on July 22, 2020 0 Comments If you’re a home brewer or just a beer lover, the best way to discover new craft beers is to research. Visiting new breweries, pubs and festivals are fun ways to do this, but it’s not always feasible to do that. It can also be easy to gravitate toward the style of beers you know you like. Imagine having new brews sent straight to your door and being able to enjoy them from the comfort of your home. Joining a craft beer club is a great way to taste new flavor profiles, discover new trends and beer styles, and hone your knowledge of craft beers. We’ve done some research of our own and created a list of the top craft beer clubs for you to consider joining. Best Variety: Craft Beer Club Each shipment from Craft Beer Club features two different micro-breweries from different geographical locations in the United States. For example, you might receive beer from Oregon on the West Coast and Florida on the East Coast both in the same shipment. You’ll be able to try 4 different craft beer styles, with 3 beers of each style, produced by small-production, independent brewers. You’ll also get a copy of the Craft Beer Club newsletter so you can learn about the breweries, get access to the tasting notes, and recipes to pair with the brews. Craft Beer Club allows you to choose how often you’d like to receive a shipment, offering monthly, every other month or quarterly shipments. Shipping is free in the U.S. and there’s no membership fee. Price: $42 a month for 12 bottles Subscribe to Craft Beer Club Best International Beers: The Hops Collective This beer club caught our eye because it offers a subscription for European Beers, focusing on imported craft beers from Ireland, England, Belgium and other countries throughout Europe. You have the choice of receiving a quantity of 4, 6, 12, or 24 European beers each month ranging in size from 300ml to 650ml per bottle/can. If you’re not interested in a European Beer of the Month Club, the Hops Collective also offers other beer clubs to choose from including seasonal craft beers, ciders, domestic beers, rare beers, and more. Price: Varies depending on subscription type Subscribe to The Hops Collective Best Customization Option: Beer Drop If you want the ability to choose which beers to try, Beer Drop allows you to personalize the boxes that are delivered to your door. You start by setting up your beer profile and picking the flavor styles you want to go in your box and then choosing your plan.

Price: $39.99 – $64.99 a month Subscribe to Beer Drop Best Exclusive Beers: The Rare Beer Club A subscription to The Rare Beer Club is similar to the others we’ve mentioned. Each shipment includes two different beer styles in two four, or six 750 ml bottles, from two of the world’s best brewers.

What sets The Rare Beer Club apart is that you’ll get access to try exclusive and hard-to-come-by beers from the World’s Best Brewers that can’t be found anywhere else.
