More on this month’s featured beers:
Camaraderie Flemish-American Pale Ale: “Camaraderie Ale is packaged in a manner that elevates the image of beer: a gold foil-wrapped, cage-corked champagne bottle with an attractive label. From the look of it, you’d think it had been around for years, but this is a brand new creation (albeit a year in the making). The beer pours a bright, clear, dark straw color, capped by a nearly white head that blankets the beer nicely and clings to the sides of the glass, creating some nice Belgian lace patterns. This collaboration beer integrates US hops, and while unexpected for the typical Belgian beer, the nose offers up plenty of characteristically ‘US hop’ aromatics…”
Posca Rustica Belgian Cervoise Gruit Ale: “Since 1983, Dupont has produced an exotic concoction inspired by research into drinks of the Gallo Roman era (check out the back label on the bottle for an informative and historically rich explanation, complete with footnotes!). This rare brew presents as a deep straw color with brassy highlights, sparkles like champagne, and is dressed with a just off-white, tightly sticky head that hangs around indefinitely…”

So, what do I get when I order?
You can order a no-obligation membership or a prepaid membership. There is no cancellation fee. 100% satisfaction is guaranteed. There are three different membership levels:
Platinum – (6) – 750 ml. bottles each month, three bottles of two different beers. $68.95 plus $18.00 S&H per month.
Gold – (4) – 750 ml. bottles each month, two bottles of two different beers. $51.95 plus $15.00 S&H per month.

There is flexibility in terms of how often you choose to receive beers and what beers you receive. Personal and gift memberships can be shipped monthly, every other month, quarterly or even on specific months.
Rare Beer Club personal memberships are given additional flexibility through their Future Shipment Update (FSU) Program. Members are sent an email at the beginning of the month detailing the two up and coming selections and a form that allows them to either skip the entire shipment, skip only one of the beers, or add more bottles of either the featured beers or their favorite past selections. In short, you’ll never get a beer you didn’t want as a personal member.
Memberships can also be ordered to give as beer gifts as opposed to just for yourself.
