One of the most badass beer labels of all time? Whomever is doing the artwork for Jester King Craft Brewery…that brewery has a winner on its hands. And you can hold the rare gem known as Gotlandsdricka in your hands thanks to The Rare Beer Club. Gotlandsdricka is brand new and hasn’t been released in any form before today (Friday) so you can go by Jester King’s track record for now… with all beers rated 84 to 92 on Beer Advocate (hard to decipher but those are good scores). Below, more details on this month’s featured beers…

2) Check out this month’s featured beers
Jester King Gotlandsdricka – Exclusivity note: Outside of RBC, this beer will be available only in Texas beginning in late October (along w/ a small handful of events). “Primitive, raw, wild beer, Gotlandsdricka is indeed a rare, traditional style. Considering this, when Jester King set out to try their hand at what we believe is the first commercially-brewed example of the style in the US, they were keen to focus on use of juniper, smoked malts, herbs and low hopping rates.”
To Øl Sans Frontiére Belgian Ale – 88/93 on RateBeer. Exclusivity note: “We should mention that this beer is brand new to the United States—and we’ve snatched up all but 30 cases that are going to be split by Chicago, California, and New York—so our members will be hording the vast majority of the nation’s supply of this very tasty brew.”

To get these beers, please place your order on or before October 15th.
3) Don’t like those beers? Substitute!
For your first shipment, you will receive the above two beers unless you specify otherwise. You may call and ask for one of the beers that they still have on the floor and substitute it into your first shipment. Just make sure to do so right after you place your order.
Beginning with the second shipment, Rare Beer Club personal memberships are, by default, given additional flexibility through the Future Shipment Update (FSU) Program. Members are sent an email at the beginning of the month detailing the two upcoming selections and a form that allows them to either skip the entire shipment, skip only one of the beers, or add more bottles of either the featured beers or their favorite past selections. In short, you’ll never get a beer you don’t want as a personal member.
Here’s what is currently available for ordering from past months:
|1||Castelain Grand Cru (Blond Biere)||90/93|
|2||De Proef Primitive Flemish Wild Ale (aka Reinaert)||94/86|
|3||Elevation Prostator Smoked Doppelbock||(NEW)|
