Beer of the Month Club
Posted on November 27th, 2012
We are happy to announce the details of our Beer of the Month Club just in time for Christmas shopping. The goal of the Beer of the Month Club is to give members access to some hard to find beers, as well as some seasonal beers that we think are classics. With each package we will also include tasting notes and information about each beer.
We are offering two levels, a “Session” level and an “Imperial” level. The Imperial level includes all the beers in the Session level, plus a few more goodies for hard core beer geek.
Anyone who participates in either level will be invited to a private tasting one every six months for Beer of the Month Club members only. We will open some bottles that we have procured along the way from our own personal cellars.
Most months we won’t be releasing the list of beers before pickup, but we wanted people to have an idea what goodies they are getting into with our new club. Pricing is as follows, with discounts for signing up for multiple months ahead of time. All packages must be prepaid:
1 month – $34.99/month (+ tax)

December’s Beer of the Month Club Package
De La Senne Schieven IPA- This beer is a collaboration between Belgian masters De La Senne as well as legendary breweries Pizza Port and Lost Abbey. Belgian aromas, great citrusy American hop aromas. Delicious, balanced.
Dupont Avec Les Bons Voeux – Holiday saison by the brewers of the classic Saison Dupont. One of my favorite holiday beers, and one of my favorite saisons period. Funky, spicy, highly carbonated. Who needs champagne in the holiday season when you can roll in with a bottle of this delicious farmhouse beer.
Freigeist Ottekolong Kolsch – Sometimes you need a break from all of those dark, syrupy holiday beers. The solution, a delicious and refreshing German Kolsch from Freigeist. Unfiltered, with the classic Kolsch grassy hop character, grainy maltiness and a touch of fruitiness. Supremely drinkable and delicious.
Adnams Tally-Ho – Remember before when we were talking about sweet holiday beers? This English barleywine/winter warmer has a great rummy, caramel malt note. Smooth, toasty, creamy and delicious. Great beer to sample in front of the fire around the holidays.
Dieu Du Ciel Rosee D’hibiscus – Another beer meant to balance out that holiday heaviness. Brewed with a significant amount of wheat, as well as Hibiscus flowers, this release from Montreal brewery Dieu Du Ciel has an amazing floral/fruity aroma, but finishes bone dry and refreshing. Complex and delicious.
Sierra Nevada Celebration – One of the reasons beer geeks get happy when the weather turns cold. Dry hopped to give the beer a delicious spiciness that just makes sense this time of year. A hop heads Xmas beer, absolutely delicious and balanced.
Anchor Christmas Ale – In its 38th year, Anchor Christmas Ale is brewed with a different recipe every year. Malty, spicy and floral, you can’t help but think of holiday spices while drinking this American craft beer classic.
You get all of the “Session” level beers, plus:
To Ol Snowball Saison – From Danish brewer To Ol, this holiday saison is meant to counteract the heavy foods of the season. Fermented with wild yeasts and dry hopped, this saison is crisp and bone dry. Delicious and hard to find, this beer is delicious and worth the effort.
Amager Hr Frederiksen – Also hailing from Denmark, Hr Frederiksen is an Imperial Stout that is not to be trifled with. Intense notes of roasted barley that comes across as espresso, big bursts of chocolate and vanilla. Thick, dark and delicious. This beer will definitely help you get through family get togethers. Absolutely delicious.
Please email, call or stop by if you are interested in participating. As the months go on, we will strive to challenge, fascinate and above all, satiate your desire for interesting and delicious beers.
