August is here and so is another post with new updates from The Rare Beer Club!
The club is coming off the heels of a special Odell Brewing offer featuring four limited release beers and also just launched an exclusive saison with Argus Brewery. Calicraft Brewing’s Buzzerkeley Sparking Ale rounds out this month’s new selections.

2) Check out this month’s featured beers
Calicraft Buzzerkeley is a 7% ABV sparking ale. Only 1,200 total cases were sold in 2014 and, outside of the club, you will only find this beer in/around the Bay Area. From the club’s review, “fermented with Champagne yeast, using pure California Starthistle honey as well as a selection of malts sourced from the U.S. and Belgium. The label speaks of it as such: ‘The honey sugars are almost completely fermented, drying out the beer similar to a Belgian Golden Strong or Dry Champagne.’ The note seemed entirely on point to us.This one pours a deep, bold golden color.”
Argus Rosie Cheeks Saison is a Rare Beer Club exclusive weighing in at a reasonable 6% ABV. From the club’s review, “a hugely expressive saison, if crafted around a rather traditional core. The malt bill consists mostly of Pilsner, as well as 10% wheat malt—which shows through in the texture and head retention. For fermentation the brewery employs a French saison strain that they purposefully let do its work at lower temperatures to get the yeast profile just right.”
To get these beers, please place your order on or before August 15th 11:59PM EDT & make sure to ask for these beers. They will ship a couple weeks after.
