This gets you 16 ounces of hops! Every month during your subscription, you'll get a package containing a full pound of limited availability hops delivered to your door, along with an informational sheet, an aroma sample, recipe and whatever else we can stuff in!
You'll also get our subscribers email, letting you know about the hops before they ship, so you can plan your brew day.
Shipping is included. We mail out your hops using USPS First Class Mail, meaning delivery is just 2-3 days from the time of shipment to most U.S. addresses. At this point we are unable to ship internationally and guarantee both quality and that your hops will make it through customs.
Q: Do I get a discount for subscribing?
A: Yes! While we try to keep prices low, we do offer discounts for longer subscriptions when you pay up front.
- If you join for 6 or more months, we'll give you 5% off each month.
- If you join for 10 or more months, we'll give you 10% off each month.
Q: That seems like a lot to pay for hops!
A: Depending on your perspective, and where you live, it might seem like it. While your local homebrew supply company likely has some hops in the $2 range, most of those are from huge co-ops and are the result of mixing the crop from several different farms together to achieve a consistent product for the year. Our hops are sourced directly from the farmer or the local co-op and we’ll tell you not just the region that the hops were grown in, but specifically which farm they came from and where that farm is at.
Still unsure about how the price breaks down? Here’s the monthly per ounce cost at the different subscription levels, including USPS Priority Mail shipping anywhere in the United States:
- 1-5 Months - $40.00 per month / 16 oz = $2.50 per ounce
- 6-8 Months - $38.00 per month / 16 oz = $2.38 per ounce
- 9-12 Months - $36.00 per month / 16 oz = $2.25 per ounce
Q: Why do you discount the subscriptions?
A: By subscribing for a longer period of time, you help us plan out how many hops we're going to need in a given month. The better we're able to gague demand up front, the better we can plan - and the better price we can get for our invesntory. If we get a good price on hops, you get more hops in your shipment.
Q: What do you mean by "get more hops in your shipment"?
A: Excatly that- if we can negotiate a deal or buy enough to get a price break from the farm or co-op, we pass that on to subscribers in the form of more hops in your monthly shipments. This doesn't always happen, but it does once in a while. You'll never receive less than the amount of your subscription though.
Q: Does the subscription automatically renew?
A: No. We’ll send you a reminder in your last shipment, but we won’t automatically bill you for another subscription.
Q: Why would I want a one month “subscription”?
A: If you just want to try out the subscriptions, this is a good place to start. This is also a great gift idea for friends and family that brew. Note- we don’t include a subscription reminder note in the one-month packs.
Q: If I give this as a gift, can I include a note?
A: Absolutely! Let us know in the note to seller area during checkout. If you forget to do it then, you can always email me at: Jonathan@HopoftheMonthClub.com.
Q: Do you have a schedule of what hops are included in each month’s shipment?
A: Because the farms and co-ops we work with are small, this can change pretty quickly. We do generally know a month in advance, so include a heads up in the monthly shipment notifications.
Q: Can I choose which hops are in the monthly shipments?
A: Not at this time. We may add this feature at some point. If this is something you’d like to see let me know at: Jonathan@HopoftheMonthClub.com.
Q: What are aroma samples?
A: Ever wonder what a hop smells like and wish you could check it out before you brew? I include some of the "hop dust" found in the bottom of the bulk packs I get in from suppliers in a separate package so you get the chance to do just that. You can simply open the packs and inhale, or do that and then drop them in hot water for a couple of minutes to get an idea of what the flavors will be like.
Q: I live outside the United States, can I subscribe?
A: While I would love to say "Yes!", it depends... If you live outside the U.S. and would like to join the Club, send me an email at Jonathan@HopoftheMonthClub.com with the size of subscription you're interested in, how long you'd like to subscribe and where you're at. I will look into what the costs to ship to you are and the potential customs challenges and then let you know so that you can determine whether or not to move forward. As a heads up, shipping costs will make up the bulk of any international order. Even shipping to Canada is roughly four times the cost of mailing out the same thing to an address in the U.S.
