Community Supported Brewery (CSB)
We are founded as a Community Supported Brewery (CSB). The CSB program is loosely based on the community supported agriculture model (CSA). Traditionally, Farm CSAs sell produce shares, and in exchange, the customer receives a box of fresh produce each week at prices lower than the market rate. Our model will be similar except we will be offering beer shares to our customers. Members will also receive early access to new products, discount on merchandise, invites to attend member-only events, and discounts on additional purchases.
In addition to the monthly subscription, we reserve special benefits just for our members. Our CSB memberships run for a one year season and can be for one or two cans a month. These options and additional info is outlined in the above graphic. Along with monthly cans of beer, a CSB membership will include discounts on merchandise and food purchases in the taproom. We will also have early access to beer releases and members will be invited to the annual member appreciation event.
CSB memberships will be limited to 100 every year. Memberships sell quickly, and it will be first come first serve to who obtains a membership. Having a membership also put you in line to have first dibs on a membership the following year.
