    More info.:

    -8 Club Exclusive Barrel Aged Sour Ales (6 of these will be 500ml & 2 will be 375ml) that will not be sold anywhere else; six of these will be fruited and at least four of these will be collaborations, with Great Notion and Hoof Hearted as two of the confirmed collaborators that are bottle conditioning so far. There will not be any extra bottles of these. Each member gets 1 bottle of each of the 8 offerings. These are the cream of the crop from the sour program.

    -6 Bottles of three different non barrel aged Adjunct Stouts (will also have first opportunity to buy additional full allotments before the general public); all Goshawk bottles will be 650 ml: 2 Bottles of “Goshawk’s Territory”: Imperial Stout with Butte and Peerless Almonds, Ghanaian and Peruvian Cacao Nibs, & Brazilian and Guatemalan Coffee Added; 2 Bottles of “Goshawk’s Beans”: Imperial Stout with Marea Coffee’s Horus Blend Coffee Beans aged in Vanilla Bourbon Barrels and Vanilla Beans Added; 2 Bottles of “Goshawk’s Migration”: Imperial Stout with Kopi Luwak Coffee and Cape Fear Pecans Added

    -2 Bottles of “#bilBerry”: Collaboration with Don’t Drink Beer; Blend of Red Wine Barrel Aged Sour Ales and a very small amount of English Barleywine aged on a massive amount of Bilberries (will also have first opportunity to buy full allotments before the general public)

    -2 different Club Exclusive Tee Shirts

    -1 Club Exclusive 5-Panel Hat

    -1 Club Exclusive Glassware

    -Right to purchase additional bottles of any public non-distributed limited release including the Goshawk series noted above and any additional barrel aged beer, hours or the day before the general public. You will get a unique password each time that gets you into the Event Brite sale early. If you share this password, you will be removed from the club immediately, no questions asked.

    *There will be two Horus Aged Ales beers released separately sometime after the club goes live at El Cerrito Liquor in Corona and Bine & Vine in San Diego, that everybody will need to purchase from the respective stores, regardless of if they have club membership or not. I committed to sending these two stores these beers far before the club was even an idea.

    -First right to renew membership for the next time period; future club will most likely stay at the 200 member capacity and will cost the same as this year to renew / join.

    -Runs June 2018 to May 2019.

    Horse whores. Are people actually signing up for something that has 10 sour bottles and 6 stouts from a brewery known for their pastry stouts that hasn't even released a sour yet? Sours that god terrible reviews at the Oceansides 11 tap takeover?

    The sour that Kyle had on tap at Woodshop 11 was quite good.

    Damn, I never tried that one. I had maybe 4 tap beers at W11, too much good beer being shared! Really regret that, made sure to have way more at W12.

    Which one was that? I think I tried all the sours that were on tap and liked them all but can't really remember specifics. Damn 7 hours of solid drinking! haha

    You know, if I can't afford the cost of some brewery or meadery membership, my inclination is to drop it if I'm already a member and not sign up in the first place if I'm not.

    That is far too logical and fiscally responsible though. That's not how this beer game works right? We need to go deep into debt and basically be treading water monthly, hoping for releases so that we can resell secondary in an effort to afford rent and rice. Right?
