The Rare Beer Club actually features three breweries in May as one is a collaboration beer. You have seen news about Odell and Thornbridge’s Pond Hopper and Rare Beer Club members will have exclusive access to this beer 2-3 weeks before its public release. The other beer to be featured is Viven (Smoked) Porter. Rare Beer Club members will have exclusive access to a limited run of 750s. Only 60 cases of 11.2 oz. bottles will hit the market through Shelton Brothers and not until 4-6 weeks after RBC members received their shipment.
Looks like a solid month to join and it’s not too early to start thinking Father’s Day or Mother’s Day gift either (for you or someone else).

More on this month’s featured beers:
Viven (Smoked) Porter: Rated a 96/97 on RateBeer.com. “A SMOKED Porter at 7.0 vol%. This is the first commercially available smoked porter made inside Belgium. A revelation! [...] This time, some bottle conditioning has even done some more complexity. Nose immediately gives roasty and smokey accents, and this in perfect harmony with – again – fruity yeasty flavors.” – Belgian Beer Board.
Pond Hopper Double Extra Pale Ale: “Pond Hopper Double Extra Pale Ale is the love child of this international brewmance. Brewed with English malts and American hops, Pond Hopper brings together the best ingredients each country has to offer, balancing a subtle sweet malt character with hosts of mango and peach hop flavor. It pours a rich golden color with citrus and ripe melon essence in the nose.”

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 upcoming 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.
