Beer Selection: (Rating: 10/10)

The selection of beers from The Micro Beer Club is impressive. They solely focus on small breweries and hand-pick their beers. They strive to give their members maximum variety, which is why each shipment will contain four different beers for the regular club. Beer selections change monthly and they never share the same beers twice. This is one of the characteristics that definitely set them apart from other beer of the month club memberships.

The club does offer beers for avid beer drinkers – including rare international and domestic varieties that cannot be found locally.

Beer Quality: (Rating: 10/10)

When it comes to quality, members will definitely benefit from going with a smaller membership like The Micro Beer Club. They hand pick every beer in their shipments and they never repeat – which means high-quality beers on a constant basis. Their tasting methods are rigorous and they deal exclusively with small domestic and international breweries to ensure the finest quality. They also have a membership exclusively for connoisseurs – which features rare, exclusive beers.

Memberships/Pricing: (Rating: 8/10)

The Micro Beer Club only has two membership options – but these may be all a person needs to fulfill their membership wants. The regular club is designed to showcase a variety of beers and help those new to beer drinking (as well as those that enjoy beer drinking) a chance to discover small batch, unique beers from around the world. The club has an introductory offer of $29 then is regular priced at $39 per shipment after that for 12 bottles or $3.25 per bottle after the introductory offer.

The club for connoisseurs features only four bombers (which are 22 ounces each). The club also has an introductory offer of $29 for the first shipment, then it is $39 after that or $9.75 per beer. These beers are rarer and designed for those that want to try something they will never find locally.

Additional Perks: (Rating: 7/10)

The Micro Beer Club is very basic, but that does not mean they do not have perks for those that sign up. Each shipment contains The Micro Brew Review – which describes the featured beers of the month, information about the brewery and even a few other beer related tidbits. There is also a blog on the company’s site so that members can get more beer drinking tips, recipes, etc.

Shipping and Packaging: (Rating: 10/10)

Shipping is always free with The Micro Beer Club – which explains partially why their per bottle rate is higher. While you do feel like you pay more for each beer, most companies offer low prices and high shipping – driving up the price per beer much higher than this club.

The company only ships bottles – whether they are 22 ounces or 12 ounce long necks. They do not send cans, which most beer drinkers prefer.

The company is clear about where they will not ship. They ship to all states except Alaska, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Utah and Texas.

Website Features: (Rating: 8/10)

The website is basic with this club, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything bad. They do have a blog where they educate you on craft and micro brews and they also offer tips and recipes. There is no membership portal, but you do order your service online through the site. Everything is very easy to find and they are upfront about introductory rates and regular rates on the site as well as all other pertinent information – including the dates their products are shipped.

Customer Service/Support: (Rating: 8/10)

Because they are a small company, they do not offer the same level of customer support bigger beer clubs do. Their hours are Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm PST and they are only available by phone or email.That being said, they carry an A+ rating with the BBB, which is a sign that even with limited support, they follow through on what they offer.

Customer Base This Club is Best Suited For

The Micro Beer Club is ideal for beer drinkers of all levels. Their regular beer club is perfect for those that are just starting out and want an affordable club with great variety. The high end club is perfect for those looking for the rare or less featured beers.

Because it includes free shipping and their prices are close to the competition, they are a good choice for any beer drinker. The only issue may be if you want a more in-depth beer club or you want more international varieties – since the majority of this club’s shipments feature domestic beers.


What We Like and What We Don’t Like

We always appreciate when a club offers free shipping – that way customers are not sticker shocked when they go to actually order from the club. We also like that they have just two clubs to choose from – so customers are not overwhelmed. While there are only two clubs, each covers just about everything a club member would expect; including rare beers.

The fact that they never repeat beers and only select from small breweries is also nice – that way you know you are getting something extraordinary.

The price per bottle is slightly higher than the competition, but with that comes exclusive small batch beers. They also have an introductory rate – which allows you to try them out risk-free for 26 percent less.

Overall, they are a great club and while they may not have as much flash and bang as others, they are definitely worth considering.
