Aside from all that is listed above (and some surprises throughout the year) you will be helping The Brewers Collective to grow and expand (we are doing a lot of expanding in 2018!!)!  Plus you will single handily help your local economy by supporting a local small business dedicated to putting out an outstanding product.

Wait, cans? You guys have cans?

Why yes, yes we will.  We have a canning machine on order and we will be selling cans out of the tasting room starting in December 2018! Get excited!

This is your beer club right? Why is it called the skeleton army?

Read all about the real  skeleton army…its a good fit for us don’t you think? Plus it sounds much cooler than “beer club”, also it’s much more than just a club. You’ll see!

When does my membership begin?

The 2018 Skeleton Army membership will begin in March 2018 and will be valid for one year.

What’s the deal with the mug?

The mug is an exclusive vessel for use in our tasting room and for your personal use outside of it.  The mug, when used in our tasting room, entitles the skeleton to 16oz of beer of any Brewers Collective offering currently on tap (excluding guest taps).  Our standard pour is 12oz and the price may vary from beer to beer, but the skeleton shall receive 16oz of that beer at the same price regardless of style! (I know, it’s awesome!) Please note that you will NOT have to bring your mug to the tasting room to receive the 16oz pour, we will have 16oz cups available.

Is Skeleton Army recruitment on going or is it limited?

Recruitment will be ongoing until we reach our maximum number of skeletons.

This would make such a great gift! How do I sign up all of my friends and family?

We agree, it’s like the gift that keeps on giving, all year long!  You can sign them up using the pay link and enter in their particulars (name, email, DOB) but use your own method of payment at check out.
