With Father’s Day just two weeks away, you’re looking for gift ideas and one of the best ones for beer lovers is a membership to one of the Microbrewed Beer of the Month Clubs. In this post, we’ll feature the latest from The Rare Beer Club specifically though you can use any of the coupon codes below to any of The Rare Beer Club’s sister beer clubs including the more accessible domestic and international 12 oz. bottle beer clubs.
This month’s RBC selections come to us thanks to two brewers from the great beer state of Colorado and another in Belgium: Odell Barrel Thief Barrel Aged Imperial IPA and De Proef Left Hand Wekken Sour.
Some things to consider/know before ordering….
1) Use a BeerPulse discount
BEERPULSE10 – $10 off ANY Beer Club Membership (2-month minimum)
BEERPULSE15 – $15 off ANY prepaid Beer Club Membership of 6 months or longer
BEERPULSE25 – $25 off ANY prepaid 12 month Beer Club Membership
2) Check out this month’s featured beers
Odell Barrel Thief is brand-new to bottles. The brewery did small draft runs on their pilot system this year to run some tests on the amount of wood time using Myrcenary Double IPA as the test beer. This is a different recipe for the Imperial IPA. There will be limited distribution for Barrel Thief with Colorado taking 60% of the bottling run.
Wekken Sour, a Blended Imperial Stout & Flemish Sour, is a one time collaboration effort between De Proef and Left Hand; it’s also part of De Proef’s annual Brewmaster’s Collaboration series featuring a new brewery each year. With the exception of some West Coast retailers, Rare Beer Club members will get it roughly two weeks before it hits the rest of the country. Expect limited distribution. Some shops have been lucky to even get a six-bottle case of past releases making these beers hard to hunt down but Wekken Sour is here for the taking from The Rare Beer Club, just a few clicks away.
To get these beers, please place your order on or before June 15th 11:59PM EDT & make sure to ask for these beers. They will ship a couple weeks after.
3) 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.
