Monthly Clubs Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club Review
The interest in microbrewed beers is rapidly rising not only in the US, but around the world. With the Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club, you don’t need a microbrewery near you to enjoy these artisanal brews. You don’t even need to leave the comfort of your couch as they are delivered right to your door. It’s the ideal way for any fan of quality beers to be able to sample a wide selection of microbrews from across the US and around the world. Genius!
The Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club from Monthlyclubs.com is the ideal gift for any beer fan who will appreciate the opportunity to sample a wide variety of beers from different breweries. For over 20 years, their panel of brewmasters and beer judges have been selecting hand-crafted microbrews from over 1,000 US and International breweries. Nice work if you can get it! I received the following beers in my shipment:
-Four 12 oz. organic pilsners from Butte Creek Brewing
-Four 12 oz. organic porters from Butte Creek Brewing
-Four 12 oz. Dirty Blonde Pale Ales from Adirondack Pub & Brewery
-Four 12 oz. Beaver Tail Brown Ales from Adirondack Pub & Brewery
I also received a helpful, cleverly-named newsletter (Malt of the Earth) detailing tasting notes, beer specifications, brewery profiles, suggested food pairings, and more. I appreciated that 6 of the beers I received were organic. I was also thrilled that 6 out of the 12 beers I received are beers that I gravitate towards: medium to dark beers like brown ales, stouts and porters. I’m not usually a pale ale drinker and was going to save these for company. Then we had an unusual hot spell and I found myself craving a lighter ale that hit the spot perfectly on an unexpectedly hot day.
The organic porter from Butte Creek was by far my favorite. It was everything a great porter should be: creamy and smooth with a hint of bitterness to balance out the richness of flavor. I detected some heady caramel and coffee tones. Yum! My next favorite was the Butte Creek pilsner. This deep golden pilsner reminded me of some of the brews I sampled while traveling in the Czech Republic.
The tasting guide that I received had extensive information on all the beers including IBUs, alcohol content, serving temperature suggestions, and which types of hops and malts were used. It even included suggestions for foods to pair it with. Most impressive! After reading it, I found that my beer vocabulary had improved, something that will come in handy the next time you find yourself debating the merits and weaknesses of a beer with a microbrew-loving friend.
