(Placentia,CA) – The Bruery teased some slight changes to their Preservation Society beer club early this year, and we now have the memo that went out to club members.
How are you enjoying your first set of beer releases from Society Member Monday last week? Chronology:6™ Wee Heavy, Les Ronces™, Mélange #1™ and Colonel Kernel™ are still Society-limited releases and available to you on TheBrueryStore.com.
Last week when we rolled out these beers, we mentioned additional enhancements were on their way. Are you ready to learn more? Here goes!
Beginning in April (Q2), a number of benefits will be incorporated into your membership, including access to the Society taplist in the Tasting Room, a 10% off loyalty discount for online purchases, and more special allocations and sales. All this at no additional cost to you. Check out the summary below, including details on the next two rebilling cycles.
The Benefits of a Preservation Society Membership, beginning April 2016
Included, Limited Quarterly Package
A specially-curated quarterly Preservation Society package is included with your membership. Each quarterly package, which retails to members for at least 10% off the retail price of the included beers, features three limited release beers, typically:
– One strong barrel-aged beer from The Bruery.
– One barrel-aged sour or wild beer from Bruery Terreux.
– The premier of an experimental beer.
10% Off Loyalty Discount
Your quarterly Preservation Society package won’t be the only thing that’s 10% off for long. Lock into special savings the longer you’re a member. After four consecutive quarters as a Preservation Society member, you’ll start receiving 10% off all beer and merchandise purchases online.
Special Sales and Allocations
As a Preservation Society member, you’ll automatically receive guaranteed access to purchase additional bottles of select, limited edition beers, such as Black Tuesday®, outside of and in addition to your quarterly Preservation Society packages. Plus, Preservation Society members often receive the first opportunity to purchase select bottles of beers before their release to the general public, often on the first Monday of every month and during special sales throughout the year. Plus, if you’re a member for four or more quarters, you’ll enjoy the extra benefit of 10% off all online purchases.
Society Taplist in the Tasting Rooms
Each quarter you’re a member, you’ll have access to offerings on the Society taplist in our Tasting Rooms at The Bruery and Bruery Terreux (opening mid-2016). Just present your proof of membership and enjoy these limited edition beers by the glass or flight.
Priority Access to Join the Reserve Society
Receive the exclusive opportunity to purchase a Reserve Society membership before it’s available to the general public (if at all). A Reserve Society membership runs from January to December. In addition to included beers and merchandise, a Reserve Society membership features a 15% discount on all purchases, access to more beers, the ability to purchase more bottles, exclusive events throughout the year and special growler fills in our Tasting Rooms.
Shipping and Storage
Additional benefits of a Preservation Society members include shipping within the state of California, the ability to designate a trustee for local pickup, and climate-controlled storage for up to three months.
Preservation Society memberships will be assessed at the beginning of each quarter, typically $58.50 per quarter. Members are eligible for the benefits detailed above for that present quarter, beginning April 2016. Discounts online and other benefits may be subject to change. The Bruery may change prices (including membership or retail prices) at its own discretion. The Bruery may substitute any scheduled beer for another beer or other merchandise. For more information, please see our Terms and Conditions.
Rebilling / Processing Payments
In order for the new benefits to begin at the start of the next quarter (April 1), we will be moving up our automatic rebilling of quarterly membership fees to the beginning of each quarter (April 1, July 1, October 1, January 1). This will allow you to enjoy the new Preservation Society benefits for the entire quarter. Just make sure your payment information is up-to-date to begin realizing the new benefits from day one.
Your Q1 2016 package will include Mocha Wednesday and two other beers (ready for pickup/delivery in early April). Historically, we have processed automatic rebilling near the beginning of the final month of a given quarter (which would have been March 1). But, in order to avoid billing you in back-to-back months (March 1 and April 1), we’re moving Q1 2016 rebilling up two weeks to February 15 to allow for a month and a half gap between billings for you.
The quarterly membership fee for any new members who join between now and March 31 will be assessed at the time of joining and will include the Q1 Preservation Society package. There’s not much space remaining for new members, so if you have a friend on the fence, let him or her know to act fast!
All members will then be rebilled on April 1, at which time the new benefits kick in.
We hope you’re as excited about these enhancements to your membership as we are!
