"I couldn’t be more pleased with how the beer (Rara Avis) turned out. The response from our members, as predicted, has been huge!” says Kris Calef, president and founder of the Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club™.

The Rare Beer Club®, one of the four U.S. and international monthly beer clubs offered by The Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club™, announces that the May 2015 shipment features two beers exclusively available to club members: Rara Avis from Monkish Brewing Company and Tripel Kanunnik from Brouwerij Wilderen.

“I first met Henry Nguyen, the owner and head brewer at Monkish, at The Festival in Long Beach last year, one of the best beer festivals in the country in terms of the quality of breweries and beers attending. Loved everything I tried that day and we both decided on the spot to do an exclusive in 2015. He pitched a few ideas, but the blended, brett-focused saison really stood out as a style that I knew would resonate with our members,” says Kris Calef, president and founder of The Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club®. “I couldn’t be more pleased with how the beer turned out. The response from our members, as predicted, has been huge!”

Rara Avis, a bottled-conditioned, blended Saison from Monkish Brewing Company, was brewed specifically for members of The Rare Beer Club, and is currenly only available in very small quantities in the Monkish Brewing Company tasting room. This Brett-heavy ale, which was created after carefully blending a spelt Saison with a rye Saison and then dry-hopping it with Citra and Galaxy hops, features a bright color, a foamy, white head, and distinct citrus aromas. With a Brett-forward, fruity flavor and a perfect touch of spiciness, Rara Avis is a standout offering from The Rare Beer Club.

Monkish Brewing Company, located in Torrance, Calif., is a 15-barrel microbrewery that focuses soley on Belgian-style beers, particularly Saisons and pale ales. Visit monkishbrewing.com for more information on Monkish Brewery, its tap room, and its wide range of craft beers.

Tripel Kanunnik, a craft Belgian Tripel from Brouwerij Wilderen, has never been released in bottles in the U.S., and was previously only available on draft in very limited quantities in New York, Pennsylvania, and Florida. This flavor-packed craft beer offers a powerfull mixture of vanilla, honey, toasted bread, and sweet crème brûlée notes beneath a spicy, clove-like aroma with a creamy texture and finish. The Rare Beer Club recommends allowing this amazing Tripel to bottle-condition in order to further develop and maximize it’s potent flavor potential.
