The Craft Beer Club sends craft brews from around the country. Each month, they send a selection of bottles and information about the breweries behind them. They also send recipes to pair with the beer.

If you sign up for an ongoing subscription (as opposed to a single month), you’ll receive a bottle opener and tasting glasses with your first box. Hop over to my first Craft Beer Club box review for details on these welcome gifts.

Craft Beer Club Subscription Box Review – June 2015 Box Cisco

Cisco Brewers Nantucket Grey Lady Ale

Grey Lady Ale is “named for the often foggy island where it is brewed.” It’s one of Cisco’s “Classic” offerings and is available year round. Grey Lady Ale is a cloudy wheat beer made with a blend of fresh fruit and spices, and I can definitely pick up some citrusy and tropical flavors. While complex, this beer is refreshing and very easy to drink. It might be my favorite Craft Beer Club pick I’ve received so far!

Cisco Brewers Nantucket Summer of Lager

Summer of Lager is a seasonal Bohemian-style pilsner. It “has a delicious malt palate and an assertive noble hop finish, but the hints of citrus (tangerine), grains, and herbs keep the flavor profile light and crisp.” I think this is a delicious beer. The crisp finish keeps it light and refreshing, which is perfect for hot summer days.

Craft Beer Club Subscription Box Review – June 2015 Box Franconia

Franconia Brewing Company Kolsch

Franconia Brewing Company is based in McKinney, Texas, and they focus on brewing authentic Belgian-style beers. While I tend to prefer experimental brews, my husband is a fan of classic beers, so it’s fun to see both featured in this month’s Craft Beer Club shipment.

Kolsch is a “golden refreshing German Beer.” The flavor is light, and it’s crisp with some citrusy notes. I think this is a great, classic beer that’s perfect for hot weather.

Frankonia Brewing Company Dunkel

Dunkel is a classic dark lager from Munich. This particular Dunkel has “a balanced, dry, toasty flavor with a hint of mocha and slightly sweet dark chocolate on the finish.” My husband loves Dunkel, and was thrilled to see one in this month’s box. This one exceeded his expectations, and I expect it won’t last long in our fridge!

Verdict: This is my third box from The Craft Beer Club, and I’ve really been enjoying the subscription so far. I’m impressed with the breweries they’ve featured and the beers they’ve sent, and I love having artisanal beers delivered directly to my front door! Value wise, the cost breaks down to just over $3 per beer. While I can pick up craft beers for less at the grocery or liquor store, I appreciate that The Craft Beer Club sends brews that I may not be able to find locally. I would definitely recommend this subscription for beer lovers looking to try new craft beers from around the country!

Are you a fan of craft beers? What do you think of this month’s picks from The Craft Beer Club?

  1. Totally just signed up! This sounds like an amazing way to try beers my husband and I might not come across regularly. I selected “asap” as my ship date so maybe I will get a box this month.
