Good Beer of the Month Club??

Does anyone know of a good Beer of the Month Club? I'm thinking about getting this as a gift for my Dad's 60th birthday. It might be especially fun if there is a theme like mircrobrews or something.

Not sure if there is such a thing as a Midwest or Chicago beer club, but he's originally from Chicago so that might be a fun twist.

Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

    I should mention I would also be interested in hearing about "Beer of the Season" clubs since that might be a lot more affordable. Plus 6-12 bottles of beer a month for an entire year is a lot of beer considering my Mom doesn't drink it.

      If your Dad is interested enough in beer that you would consider a beer of the month club, rest assured that 6-12 bottles a month isn't that much. Assuming (conservatively) that he only would drink these only on a weekend, and again conservatively assuming that he has one beer per day on Saturday and Sunday, that's 8 bottles he would drink per month via the club. Not too many in other words.

      Someone signed me up for this one, http://www.beermonthclub.com/, and I've enjoyed it. I think I have the domestic/int'l version, but I think the domestic microbrew only would be good too.

      Another thing my family has done on occasion is just go to liquor store with great selection and pick a whole bunch of interesting looking beer off the shelf and make up a few sixpacks or a case that way.
