2) Check out this month’s featured beers

De Ranke Noir De Dottignies (rated 95/94 on RateBeer): “Noir de Dottignies will hold up for at least 6-12 months if treated properly (i.e. kept at cellar conditions), drying out a bit with time, but we believe it is at peak glory at about 3 months of age (in terms of robust fruitiness). Other than what we’ve picked up for our members, only about 100 cases of this beer made their way to the US in all of 2012—sent only to a handful of states. Enjoy another tasty, rare brew, from us to you!”

Bellerose Bière Blonde Extra (rated 73/95 on RateBeer): “We suggest enjoying this beer fresh-don’t lay it down—this is one to enjoy within 60 days of receipt—it’s a bit delicate, and features its hops, so you want to get on it quickly to experience this beer as the brewer intended. Bellerose has only been in the US since November 2012, and a mere 50 total cases (or approx. 600 total bottles) distributed to very limited markets at that, so we hope you take this opportunity to stock up on the stuff—it represents another important step in the evolution of great French beer.”

To get these beers, please place your order on or before January 15th.

3) The Rare Beer Club™ has a new website

After months of hard work, the company behind The Rare Beer Club™ launched a new website this past fall that makes it a lot easier to learn about all of the clubs, learn about the featured beers and, for the first time, design your own club.

4) Don’t like this month’s featured beers? Substitute in other beers.

For your first shipment, you will receive the above two beers unless you specify otherwise. You may call and ask for one of the beers that they still have on the floor and substitute it into your first shipment. Just make sure to do so right after you place your order.

Beginning with the second month, you’ll automatically be enrolled in the Personalized Shipment Program™ which ensures that as a personal member of The Rare Beer Club™ you’ll receive only the beers you want to get. (Also available to gift recipients upon request.) Each month prior to receiving your shipment, you will be sent an email detailing the two upcoming beer selections and given the ability customize what you will receive. You can:

-Add more bottles of either or both of the upcoming featured beers
-Add more of your favorite past selections
-Replace one or both of the featured beers with your favorite past selections
-Choose not to receive one of the featured beers
-Skip the entire shipment altogether
-You’re in complete control of what you receive every month and can rest easy knowing you’ll never get a beer you didn’t want to get. No other beer club offers that kind of flexibility.
