Why would you want to belong to a beer of the month club? To encourage your ferocious taste for booze, of course! Okay, not really. In fact, take yourself out of it for a second. (It’s not all about you all the time, pal!) A beer of the month club is a solid and affordable holiday gift idea. Some clubs are as low as $30 or $40 per month, and even offer a deal to sign up. That should allow you to pay for one or two months and still keep to a modest budget.
As for you, why not make discovering new craft beers easier? It’s a “set it and forget it” type of thing; you pay for the month, you get new brews delivered. Simple.
Plus, you can opt out of most of them whenever you want. So it’s not like the old school CD clubs that keep you on the hook for an entire year. When you’re done being adventurous or you’ve gained a significant amount of weight in your midsection, cancel your beer of the month membership and be done with it. Here are a handful to consider …
