    With membership renewal season upon us, curious to know everyones plan for dropping/renewing for next year.

    My current plan is:
    Keeping: Dionysus, Casa, Powder Keg (if they offer again), Brewery membership i'm not allowed to talk about
    Dropping: The Rare Barrel, Bruery PS
    Hoping to add: Mikkeler viking club (in april/may)
    Jury still out: de Garde (although this just started, haven't been too impressed so far. Lots of time to turn that around though)

    I wonder if these breweries get songs stuck in their head when they get dropped?

    Yes, they specifically denied me but I have a membership by proxy. Sadly this proxy charges me $75 per case. Sure miss that $50 per case cost :(

    Adding: MT

    Considering: Bottlecraft Lock & Key

    Keeping/on the fence: Mikkeller Viking (at the very least, dropping down to the lower level) If I add BC I'll likely drop Viking.

    Ended up dropping TRB (well, not renewing for 2018) so in its place I am splitting DeGarde Keepers and splitting the new Wild Barrel.

    I reupped bruery and joined hoarders and kept rl catador two bottle! Gonna split the hoarders with a friend due to cost. Ouch!

    Is there a place to find a new trustee for bruery? Mine is retiring for the game after being a superstar.

    I have heard very little of DG's membership. What is included? does it include the option to buy online any bottles that are available at DG as well?

    8 bottles, a glass, and a tasting tour.
    You cannot buy all bottles they offer, just the ones they decide to. Sadly Violet Premier wasn't one of those bottles.

    That's really odd. They don't want their members to buy up their bottles? Their preference is for locals to snag them up?
