Four times each year we create a new Quarterly Edition and they tend to sell out pretty quickly. To avoid missing one, and to save some cash, you can purchase a year-long subscription to receive two packs of the current Quarterly Edition, plus two each of the next three, as they are released.
Frequently, you’ll receive subscriber-exclusive items and other goodies with your shipments. Occasionally, you’ll also receive an extra shipment (like this, for example) when we have something special to share. We’ll also include two 3-Packs of our classic Kraft Memo Books with your first shipment.
Subscriptions are $97 and include free shipping in the United States. For all other countries, a $7 shipping charge will be added during checkout that covers all four of your subscription shipments.
If you are looking to renew a current subscription or pre-order one that starts with a future Quarterly Edition, you can do so here.

A mystery right up until they’re opened! Each 3-Pack is hidden in an opaque black sleeve with a random selection of three of six bright new versions inside. You didn’t know what you ordered and we didn’t know what we shipped.
Our first “Note Book” sized Quarterly Edition included an “Arts” book with a wine-colored cover and alternating plain/ruled pages, and a “Sciences” book in slate gray with plain/engineering graph paper inside.

One 3-Pack for Ales and one for Lagers feature heavyweight New Page Sterling Premium 120# covers with a “soft touch” varnish. Each of the six books represents a different brew, with a brief history of each style on the back cover. Subscribers also received a handy 6-Pack carrier.
