I received the monthly newsletter that goes into great detail on the breweries featured and each beer. The first featured brewery is DuClaw Brewing Company, established in 1996 in Bel Air, MD. Furthermore Beer is the second featured brewery that was founded in Spring Creek, WI in 2006. I loved reading about the history of each brewery and the owners, and then the detailed descriptions for each beer featured this month!

Hop Hammer

DuClaw Brewing Company is now located at a new brewing facility in Rosedale (a city just outside of Baltimore) where they have a custom-made and imported high-tech German brewing system.

The first beer I tasted from DuClaw was their Hop Hammer and true to its name, it is very hoppy! I think this drink would be perfect to enjoy during the summer with a fish taco! The Hop Hammer has 6.3% alcohol content and 45 IBUs, so great if you love lots of hops. I really loved the flavors in this beer, tasting hints of pine and some fruit that I can only describe as a light orange flavor.

Sweet Baby Java

The second beer from DuClaw, Sweet Baby Java, is a new limited release version of their most popular beer. Sweet Baby Java is cold steeped with whole bean espresso, comes in at 6.2% alcohol content, and 33 IBUs. This beer is very dark, thick and malty like a traditional Scottish brew. You get a strong peanut butter flavor and smell at your first sip, and as you continue with this brew you get a perfect mixture of sweet and bitter flavors. I am not a big fan of sweet beers, but this is something I would love to sip on as a treat!

Floating Fire

Furthermore Brewing was founded by Aran Madden who grew up in the Pittsburgh area and worked at a few key breweries in the city before moving to Spring Creek, WI to start his own brewery.

The first beer from Furthermore is Floating Fire, a smoked rye IPA with 6% alcohol content and 65 IBUs. At first sip, you can really taste the smokey flavors that make this beer so unique! I also tasted a light spice with a very mild sweetness that most likely comes from the hibiscus flowers. For me, this beer would be perfect to drink during the fall with a spicy dinner!

Fatty Boombalatty

The second beer from Furthermore was hands down my favorite brew for the month. Furthermore wanted to make a beer that was similar to a Belgian witbier, the end result is a Belgian pale ale with some witbier overtones. Fatty Boombalatty has a little higher alcohol content at 7% and 45 IBUs. This is a pale ale at its finest with hints of sweetness and spice.  

I went to college in Cincinnati, where they hold one of the largest Oktoberfest celebrations in the U.S. This beer took me back to weekends celebrating Oktoberfest on a hot Cincinnati afternoon, Belgian brew and potato pancake in hand, and if one beer can make you remember all of that, then they are doing something very right!

Now that we are done tasting, here is a view of all the beers to see the difference in each! From left to right: Hop Hammer, Fatty Boombalatty, Floating Fire, Sweet Baby Java. 

Verdict: I love that The Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club provides you with such great detail into each beer you receive and that they feature the story behind two breweries each month. With the increasing trend in breweries, I love that they are helping to bring awareness to up and coming breweries and their founders. Both breweries were new to me, but I loved each beer featured and will absolutely be buying more!

This box is on the higher end in terms of pricing at $42.95 a month (a lot of this price comes in due to shipping). However, you do receive 12 beers each month which breaks down to about $3.57 a beer. This box is so detailed and the brews were very high quality that I think this box would be perfect for someone interested in becoming a home-brewer or would even make a great gift! The whole experience with this box and each beer was so much fun that I would highly recommend it to any fellow beer lover!
