Just FYI to other comments:"Brew of the Month" achievement is awarded for JOINING the BotM club (turning the form in to the proper NPC). After this, you'll get an in-game mail congratulating you for joining, and you will receive one alcoholic beverage per month for the next year.After the year is up, no more freebies unless you re-join (for another 200 tokens)After you actually DRINK the 12 free beverages, you get the "Brew of the Year" achievement (10 points), which is NOT required for the meta (Brewmaster and What a Long, Strange Trip it's Been).I was AFK for the earlier part of this year, so i missed four or five of the beers, and i'm re-joining this year (kicks self in head). The mailed drinks follow the same rules as all mail, deleted after 30 days.

Not to contradict you, but I completed my Brew of the year way back at the beginning of Wrath and for the last few months I have been receiving Brewfest Beer in the mail. While what you say was indeed true as of last year, Blizzard MAY have changed their policy on the Brew of the Month Club, perhaps a question on the official forums would elicit a 'blue" response with a definitive answer.

I'm going off of wowhead commenters that say the brews stopped after one year.

I believe some bug may have recently (as in 4.0.6 or later) reenabled Brew of the Month for people whose brew subscriptions had lapsed. I recall having started receiving them again after having been lapsed for quite some time.

I was also AFK for a month and a half earlier this year. I randomly got the brews I'd missed in the mail during the middle of a later month. Assume this was a bug...
