Cousins birthday is coming up and he is really starting to get into good beers. His girlfriend wants to get him a subscription to a beer of the month club so she asked me. And I have NO idea. Sure, I can google all the clubs. But it would be nice to get some personal experience.

I don't know of any off hand. Most good brew shops will give you recommendations for good seasonal beers. You should tell her to buy him a $500 gift certificate to Northern Brewer or Midwest Supplies or Austin Homebrew and let him pick a beer kit per month from their catalog. At least she would know that he would be getting a good quality kit.

Gift Certificate to a Good bottle shop. The BOtM clubs I've seen are a rip off.

The beer of the month clubs are expensive as hell and you can't even get them in a lot of states. I agree with a gift card to a good bottle shop.

Can not say this enough. My wife got me a membership to one and it was a waste of money.

Ooohhhh.... a vertical spam tasting! Sign me up.

I agree that bottle clubs are not the best way to go, unless you live in a barrel beer wasteland, then they may be the only way to go.

The questions is, how long can you stay vertical afterwards though.

Thanks for the advice everyone. She decided against the BOTM club and is instead sending him to a go-kart track to drink and drive fast .

Mmmmmm.... some spam to go with my monthly beers... And since their website says that they have been a club for 15 years, they must be good at what they do? What a great club!

Hey guys, guess what we should call the website?!
