Beer of the Month Club Reviews

I’m on a mission to explore and find the best beer of the month clubs. This page contains my reviews of the best beer clubs, past selections, and my reviews of the beers from the clubs (as available). It will be continually updated as I try more beer clubs and drink more of their beer (fun job, eh?).

My Top 2 Picks – Choose the One that Fits You Best

Club Name & LinkWhat's Included?Who's it for?
Rare Beer ClubTwo different 750ml bottles of rare beers. These beers usually can't be found anywhere else and are more extreme in style (e.g. big IPAs, sour ales, brettanomyces beers, high ABV beers, etc).The beer connoisseur who likes brews that push the limits. If you're always waiting for the next limited beer release & enjoy experimental styles, this club's for you.
The Original Craft Beer ClubTwelve 12oz bottles. Three bottles of four different beers, from two breweries. The beer selection is great and the styles are very welcoming (e.g. Pale Ales, Porters, Stouts, Wheat beers, etc).The craft beer drinker who enjoys trying a wide selection of brews & wants something easy drinking that is still tasty. Prefers 12oz bottles to the big 750ml's.

I’ll give more details below on the four beer clubs that I’ve personally evaluated. The top picks mentioned above have the

gold border.

The Original Craft Beer Club is another club I tried out and can recommend as one of the best beer clubs for any true beer lover. This particular package came with a unique surprise. When I opened the box there was a bottle opener, four bags of peanuts, and four tasting glasses included. Nice icing on the cake to go along with the tasty brews below.
