One change from last years’ membership is that we are unable to offer shipping for the 2011 Reserve Society membership. FedEx, UPS, and USPS rules do not currently allow the shipping of beer from a brewery to a consumer (just from a licensee to a licensee, or for the case of wine, from winery to consumer). There is a fairly high risk that if we continue to ship to you, we will have issues with the packages being confiscated or destroyed once the contents of the packages are known to the shipper. We apologize for the inconvenience, and we will work with our fellow craft breweries to have this policy changed. We will, however, provide storage for all Reserve Society allocations until March 1st 2012. It is the responsibility of the member to arrange for pick up. A trustee can be designated at the time of purchase if the member is not local to The Bruery by having that person’s name as the “Ship To” name.
We hope to see you at the January initiation celebration!
The folks at The Bruery
