The World's Best Hand-Selected Rare Beers

Our tasting panel, once headed by Michael Jackson, is a tough lot to impress. Collectively, they have over 100 years of experience in the brewing industry, from heading brewing operations at BJ’s Brewhouse, a 100+ location brewpub chain, to judging at the Great American Beer Festival. They rate each prospective selection only knowing its style and not where it was brewed. Our blind-tasting format assures no prejudices sway our goal of identifying extraordinary beers.

Limited-Release, Celebratory Beers and Exclusive Selections

All of our selections are presented in 750 ml bottles; most are also cork finished and wire caged. We often help introduce products to the US market so you'll be the first to try them. You’ll also get beers brewed exclusively for our members, like Jolly Pumpkin’s Lupulo de Hielo, an oak-aged spiced blended ale.

Barrels, Brett and Innovative Ingredients

We work with breweries like Belgium's Fantôme, where brewer Dany Prignon continues to dazzle the world of craft beer with products like Fantôme Chocolat, a Belgian saison brewed with cocoa powder and chili pepper. Many of our featured beers are aged in French oak, bourbon, or even cedar barrels and are brewed with brettanomyces and other wild yeasts.

Imperial and Extreme Beers

Many brewers are now offering beers to consumers in small-batch releases that were once enjoyed only by their inner circles. Imperial or Extreme beers are often bigger versions of existing styles. More malt, more hops, and much higher ABVs, some of which exceed 12%. They are often complex, celebratory offerings, meant to be shared and sipped as you would enjoy a fine spirit.

Selections You Can Age

Many selections will offer high enough hop acidities and ABVs to allow them to be laid down and aged. Members can easily reorder their favorite selections, set them aside, and see how they've matured in months and even years to come.

Introducing New Brewers and Countries to the Craft Scene

When you think of bold, exciting, creative styles, several countries including the US, England, and Belgium come to mind. But we'll also introduce you to exciting microcosms of creativity found in countries like Brazil, Japan, The Netherlands, Scandinavia and more.

Quality, Variety and A+ Rated Customer Service

For more than 20 years, we've differentiated ourselves in many ways, striving simply to offer the best service in the market. And we're confident that you'll agree we've met that goal. Here's why.

Our Professional Beer Panel Ensures Quality Selections

With over 100 collective years of experience in the brewing industry, our panel of Beer Judges and Brewmasters are well qualified to consistently select outstanding craft beers. We rate over 500 beers from breweries around the world each year with less than 20% being approved.

Responsive, Reliable, Customer Service From a Trustworthy Company

From our inception, our founders have instilled a strong sense of dedication to consistently delivering responsive, effective customer service. It’s earned us an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, one we’ve maintained since 1994.

More Variety Than Any Other Beer Club — US and Imported Selections

We offer four membership types, two of which feature four different styles in each shipment. Choose to receive all US craft beers, all imported selections or a combination of both. Or become a member of the world’s most exclusive beer club, The Rare Beer Club™. Variety to us means both within in a single shipment as well as from month to month with a special emphasis on limited production seasonal offerings like Dopplebocks, Saisons, and Spiced Winter Warmers.

We’ve Built Strong Relationships with Breweries, Ensuring Exciting Beers

You have to put in the time and effort in order to consistently find innovative and exciting beers, many of which are limited production, have not been previously available to the U.S. market, or are exclusive selections available only to club members, such as Saint Somewhere's Cynthiana, a 9% Strong Dark Farmhouse Ale.

Our Design Your Own Club™ Program Allows You to Create a Custom Membership

Combine any of our four beer clubs into a single membership or combine a beer club membership with any of our other monthly clubs including wine, cigar, cheese, chocolate or flower clubs.

Manage to Any Budget with Flexible Ordering

Both personal and gift memberships are available from 2-12 months or on a month to month basis. You may send or receive shipments monthly, every other month, quarterly, or even on specific months. Pay in one installment or monthly.

Meet the Brewers, Appreciate the Beer Through Our Monthly Newsletter

You’ll meet the unique people who are the heart and soul of each brewery in our monthly newsletter, Malt of the Earth. And you’ll better appreciate the beers through detailed tasting notes and ingredient profiles as well as suggested food pairings.

Reorder Your Favorites at Discounted Prices

Enjoy Unmatched Variety

Various Bottles of Rare Beer

Members receive two different styles in each shipment. We strive to offer variety between those two styles as well as from month to month. Variety to us means not only by style but also by country of origin, so rest assured that both domestic US craft brewers as well as time-honored international breweries will be represented.
