What is Wine & Beer Club?

Not in the Wine or Beer of the Month Club yet? You’ve heard about this Wine & Beer Club but aren’t quite sure what it is? Here’s an explanation to help!

First, the Wine & Beer Club is a subscription to flavor. It’s a monthly subscription that you can join to receive pre-selected high quality beverages automatically. Ever go to the wine shop shelves or grocery store and just get lost in it all? You want to try something new, but the risk of picking something that maybe looks good but isn’t good is too great? We’re here to help elevate your palate to the next level, introducing you to new wines, obscure wines, and great values in their price range. You choose price levels and color (red or white) and we do the rest. My favorite experience is when someone comes back in after their first Wine Club bottle to order more because they just discovered something incredible!

How do we do it? We taste different wines all the time, sometimes 100′s in a month. It’s hard work but we do it so we can find the best flavors, values, and unique bottles to share with you. Subscribing to the Wine of the Month Club means you will try something new in the price range(s) you select, from the wine color(s) you select. The exact bottles are cherry picked by us from domestic and international sources, and constitute an adventure in wine!

The wine club is a great way to learn about wine, experience a variety of unique wine & beer, broadening your horizons. Come by this weekend and try a Red Flight and/or White Flight to get an idea what the different levels are about!

We have a lot of options to choose from, and you can choose any quantity of bottles in any combination of levels.

  • Vintage – $15
  • Reserve – $20
  • Premier – $30

These are the standard levels that come in Red or White each month. We taste through a bunch of wines each month to select the best available at each price level. Often we get limited edition wines, rare finds, or special deals that are not generally available because we’re buying for the Club!

  • Budget Wine Club – 2 Bottles for $20

We listen to our customers, and what we hear a lot is that you’re on a budget! This is a special Wine Club created to find you delicious bargains, TWO bottles each month for $20 total. The wines can vary in color (red, white, pink, etc.) each month, and style can vary as well, but the idea is to get you two bottles that are unique, interesting, and delicious each month for only $20.

  • Anniversary Red Only – $50

Our Anniversary club is only available as a Red wine, and is an excellent club to be in to build your cellar with high quality and rare items.

  • Fine Beer Club – $20

Each month the Fine Beer Club members receive $20 worth of beer in whatever configuration fits. We may include large format bottles, smaller bottles, six packs, even (gasp!) cans. Some are darker, some are lighter, but all in all it’s a great way to explore beers from international and domestic sources. Fine Beer Club is a variable number of bottles each month, in a huge range of beer styles, but always interesting and unique $20 worth of beer.  This club focuses on new releases, specialty beers, and a wide variety of styles.  This is for the craft beer explorer.

  • Rare Beer Society – $35

Rare Beer Society is a subscription to special and rare craft beers for a true craft beer lover. Exclusively limited-release beers, can be a variable number of bottles not exceeding a total cost of $35 in one month.  This club focuses on beers that have low-availability, special reserve series beers, and hard-to-find exclusives.  Included will be vintage beers suitable for aging, perhaps beers that we have cellared to perfection at Enoteca, and beers that appeal primarily to advanced craft beer enthusiasts.

Questions and Answers

  1. Q: I live in Timbuktoo, can I have my monthly Club selections shipped?

    A: There are a couple of answers to this question.  And you don’t have to be from Timbuktoo, any where remote from Post Falls counts.

    First, we can ship it.  Shipping can be a bit pricey, you can get an idea of the costs by visiting our beer shipping website at www.beership.com and putting some stuff in your cart.  There’s more to it than shipping books, what with alcohol involved and being pretty heavy product, and having required packaging materials.  If you do want it shipped, I’d recommend having the shipping triggered only when a box would be filled up, rather than each month, so that it would be more efficient.

    Secondly, you may pick up in the store can happen any time you want.  It’s OK for your wine & beer to pile up for a few months, and pick it up when you do have a chance to come to town.  Members have Bins here that we put the beer in, so we consider it “delivered” to your Bin, but you can take your sweet time coming to get it.  You might get thirsty in the mean time, but at least there’s no need to stress about it!

    So I can still join?!  Absolutely!  There are currently members who live in Sandpoint, Endicott, Helena, Airway Heights and we’ve had some couples who traveled extensively for work who only came home every 6 months or so that enjoyed the Club.  It’s like Christmas when you get here!  Snow birds who winter in Arizona often let their Bin fill up so they can party when they get back to Idaho!

  2. Q: What if I come to pick up my selection, and I’ve already tried it and don’t like it?

    A: Our goal is your happiness. We can make a trade!

    The goal is to try new things and explore new flavors, but if you’ve tried it an don’t like it, then we’re happy to issue store credit.   Pick up something different before you leave the store and trade in your Club selection.

  3. Q: I already get a certain level of wine and/or beer club, but I’d like to get more, can I add to it?

    A: Yes, continue to expand your horizons!

    Simply email us or fill out a Club Change Form at Enoteca to alter your selections.

  4. Q: I’m a Fine Beer Club member, why would I add Rare Beer Club?

    A: Rare Beer and Fine Beer Club are mutually exclusive, so you can get even more beer!

    Rare Beer Club is a recent addition to our line-up, and is mutually exclusive to the original Fine Beer Club. We’re focusing on a different type of beer in each Club, so if you want it all, get both! If you’re fairly new to craft beer and want to learn about new releases first, and new styles, make sure you’re in the Fine Beer Club. If you’re a seeker of high-end, limited-release Craft Beer and are more concerned with quality than cost, make sure you’re in the Rare Beer Club.
