We are very pleased to have Holiday Wine Cellar as the exclusive retailer of Birra Nursia in North America.

For order information or questions please refer to the information provided below.

NEW Shipping Policy: The Brewmonks want to make it easier to get Birra Nursia to your door. To that end, they are now able to offer flat-rate shipping (4 weeks) at $14.99* for orders up to one case! If you order 3 or more cases, you’ll get FREE shipping. Most exciting, all subscribers to the Brewmonks’ Club, which is the best way to regularly support the work of the monastery through Birra Nursia, will also receive free shipping.


* Free or flat-rate shipping (4 weeks) is available within the contiguous United States. These prices are not applicable for shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, or any other territory of the United States.

If you qualify for free-shipping, please note that the courier will make several delivery attempts. If the courier is finally unable to deliver your order, you will have to pay for it to be re-shipped from Holiday Wine Cellar.



The Brewmonks’ Club is the premier way to enjoy Birra Nursia at home. By signing up, you pledge to buy a case of 12 bottles every month, or, every other month, for 1 year. Members are thus able to enjoy Birra Nursia throughout the year and be a part of the developing story of the construction of the monks’ new monastery. Members become connoisseurs of the beer and are the monks’ ambassadors in the United States. And, needless to say, membership has its rewards.




  • Free shipping all year long!
  • A free case of our new signature glass beer goblets and bottle openers
  • When inventory is low, your Club order receives priority over non-member orders
  • Regular updates from the brewery


*After your first purchase, you will be charged automatically on the first day of every month.

Shipping Details


Once you place an order, tracking information will be provided. Flat-rate shipping and expedited shipping options are available at Check Out.



Shipping to home


You must be at least 21 years of age to sign for a package containing alcohol and it is your responsibility to be home for the delivery. The monks suggest having a package shipped to your workplace if you are not able to be home to sign for your package. If no one is available to sign for the package on the first attempt, you’ll need to refer to the instructions provided by the shipping company that will be determined at Check Out.


Shipping to Walgreens


You can ship to Walgreens for worry-free, inexpensive shipping, but this is not part of the flat-rate shipping program. When you ship to Walgreens, you do not need to worry about being at home to sign for your package. Simply pick it up from a Walgreens location of choice within 7 days. To ship to Walgreens, simply enter your ZIP code on this FedEx page to find the nearest location. Then, copy and paste the address details on the Shipping page at checkout (by selecting “Ship to another address”).


In-Store Collection


During Check Out, you have the option to choose to collect your order at the Holiday Wine Cellar store in Escondido, California. Your order will be pulled and placed in a special holds area until you arrive. You will receive a call from one of Holiday’s customer service representatives when your order is ready to be collected.

A few tips to ensure your Birra Nursia experience is a ‘mountaintop’ experience:

Store Upright

Store Birria Nursia upright (not on the bottle's side) in a cool dry place or refrigerator.

Serve Chilled

Serve chilled or at 50-55 degrees F.

Pour Carefully

Hold glass at an angle while pouring beer into it.

No Shaking

Do not shake or drop bottles.

Time to Settle

Do not open immediately after rough handling or shipment to avoid gushing.


Some bottles might already be a little excited, because of the boat ride, or the train ride, or the moon. Don’t worry it's all normal…!


It is recommended that once the beer is opened it be consumed entirely in one sitting to ensure the best experience.
However, the beer can be consumed up to 2 days once opened. Be sure to re-seal opened beer prior to storing.



Blonde: 2 Years

Extra: 3 Years

Holiday Wine Cellar is happy to work with you in processing returns.


There are absolutely NO returns on opened bottles.


Once package is received, you will have five (5) business days to ship a returning (unopened) item.


If you, the customer, should change your mind about an order already placed but that has not yet shipped, or would like to add or remove items to a pre-existing order before shipping, please call Holiday toll-free at 888.HWC.1965.


Order changes or cancellations


While Holiday Wine Cellar tries its best to accommodate order cancellations or change requests, the timing for such requests is critical.

Shipping Questions

Q. What shipping company does the Birra Nursia use?
You will receive information about the shipping company once your order is placed. Expedited orders are shipped through private couriers, such as FedEX or UPS.

Q. Does Weather & Temperature affect my shipment?
Due to the sensitivity of Beer, potential shipping delays may occur due to weather and/or temperature. Be mindful of all potential [natural] factors.

If you wish to have the item shipped regardless of the weather and/or temperature, it is highly recommended to ship via Overnight Shipping. If you do choose to ship after a recommended wait time has been suggested, the customer does so at his or her own risk and Holiday cannot be held responsible for any damage due to the weather and/or temperature.

Q. What if I’m not home when my order is delivered?
You must be at least 21 years of age to sign for a package containing alcohol, and it is your responsibility to be home for the delivery. Holiday suggests to have a package shipped to your place of business if you are not available to be home to sign for your package.

If no one is available to sign for the package on the first attempt, two additional attempts will be made. You can also contact your local UPS/FedEx office to make arrangements for pick-up at one of their locations. If all three delivery attempts are unsuccessful and you have not made arrangements for a pick-up, your order will be returned to Holiday automatically. At that point, you will be responsible for not only the cost to reship your package, but also the cost for the return of the package to Holiday Wine Cellar.

Q. When should I expect my package to be shipped?
All expedited orders placed Monday – Friday before 2PM PST will go out the same day, if the order is not chosen at random for a vocal verification. Flat-rate orders usually go out twice a week.

Q. Is there an In-Store Pickup option during checkout?

Yes, there is an In-Store Pickup option. During checkout, you have the option to choose a shipping method. Choose In-Store Pickup and your order will be pulled and placed in our special holds area.
You will receive a call from one of our customer service representatives as soon as your order is ready for pickup.


Q. What is your Return Policy?
There are absolutely NO returns on opened bottles.

Q. Is it possible to change or cancel an order?

If your order has already shipped, and you still wish to cancel or change your order, please contact at either Service@HolidayWineCellar.com or 888-492-1965.
