Tavour – Is it the best beer subscription for you?you either love subscription services, (which Tavour (very technically) isn’t) or you love beer. Maybe you love both!
Will give you all the information you’ll need to decide whether it is worth a download (PS: it’s free to get started, so of course it is!)
Here at Mantelligence, we love our beer of the month clubs… But like we keep saying, Tavour isn’t one of those. It’s a free service you sign up for that showcases interesting and delicious beers you normally can’t find in your area.
Tavour discovers beer so you don’t have to spend 10 minutes in a frigid beer cooler trying to decide which six pack you want to buy. And that’s only if you’re lucky enough to have a store near you with a large beer selection.
YOU decide whether or not you want a shipment. How?
But once you do, you’ll be shown 2 new beers a day (next to currently featured beers) with a bit of backstory of the beer along with some tasting notes, the cost, and other important information. Ignore the beer if it’s not your style, or choose to buy it and select how many cans or bottles you want.
A month after your first purchase, they ship all the beer you selected to your door. It’s so simple, I wish I would have thought of it.
And because all beers are different, they ship beers in all shapes and sizes from 12 oz. cans to 750mL bottles. And depending on the beer, you might spend MORE on a 12 oz. can than you would for a 750 mL bottle. But only if you want to.

Below are some of the beers that they recommended to me personally. Now I’m thirsty…

|Mischief by The Bruery, Placentia, CA||A nice and bubbly Belgian Strong Pale Ale with a solid 8.5% ABV.||$10 for 2x16oz cans|

|KUIU Verde 2.0 IPA by Anchorage Brewing Co., Anchorage, AK||A tactical-branded Hazy IPA with plenty of hops at a reasonable price.||$7.99 for 1x16oz. can|
|The Jacket by Matchless Brewing, WA||A dark and heavy porter. Matchless beers are constantly requested by members, and for good reason.||$6.99 for 1x16oz. can|
|Champing Brut by Brewery Vivant, MI||A 7.0% IPA with Meyer Lemon, Champagne Mango, and Navel Orange notes.||$6.99 for 1x16oz. can|
You guys know we love to review beer clubs… which is why we were excited to review Tavour.
Tavour is one of those rare services that you don’t think you’ll actually buy anything from until you take a look at the selection.
I’ve only been fiddling around with the app for a week, but I’ve already found some beers that sound so good, I’ve added them to my list of beers to try (I live near an international food market with an enormous beer selection, so it isn’t NECESSARY for me. Plus I’m cheap.)
But that’s the thing… You may not have that luxury, which is why they might be a good fit for someone like you.
In any case, take a look below at the pros and cons of this beer subscription and decide for yourself if it’s a service that’s convenient and has value for you.
This list of pros and cons will give you a better idea of what to expect from them.
And really… The cons might not be cons for you at all.
It all depends on what you’re looking for in a beer subscription service (which isn’t a subscription service, remember?) Don’t forget to download the app and check it out for yourself!
- It is free to start.
- Flat rate shipping no matter how many beers you buy.
- A seriously extensive collection of beers from all over the world.
- If you’re near Tukwila, WA, you can stop by the warehouse and pick up your beer to save on shipping.
- Orders cancelled within 3 days are free of charge. After 3 days you pay a 50% restocking fee.
- You can order beer by replying to email offers. The Tavour team reads every email they receive.
- Their referral program can net you $10 per referral (you get it about a week after your referral makes his/her first purchase. He/she gets $10 once their first box ships.)
- Sold out beers have a waitlist so you’re guaranteed to get the beer you want to try. After all, patience is a virtue.
- It hands down ones of our favorite beer gifts
- They don’t ship until a month after your first purchase, which may be inconvenient for some. (It’s so you can see as many beers as possible before your crate ships. Then you get to enjoy them all at once!)
- There are limits on how many cans/bottles of each beer you can buy.
- Shipments require an adult signature, necessary but irritating (21+ because it’s beer, duh.)
- Shipping costs are rather steep at $14.95 (but if you buy a ton of beer, it’s well worth it.)
- Some Google Play and App Store reviews claim they don’t ship to certain areas. If you’re in one of those areas, see here.
