    Since when does loyalty factored in by number of years local. Not everyone was lucky enough to join from the beginning, (living out of state/city, or just have the original money to join, or perhaps just not as into craft beer). What if when they first tried a Bruery beer they were true loyalists, and say from 2010 on where big time fans, partaken in the 12 days of christmas and were finally able to join in 2012. How is that not factored. I think this method was flawed. Granted there is no good way to start this new club especially with the limited availability. I just think from the get go everyone who is already a member should of been a hoarder and just have different levels. And every year or two you graduate to a new level. With that said, with all the anger and butthurt from a lot of people over this move. I expect more bruery beers getting love on ebay, out of spite to Patrick Rues decision. I hope he does publish how much turnover does take place over those angry members leaving. Maybe a survey for why they did not renew?

    Very interesting interview. I’m a first year RS Member and did not receive an invite to join the HS and at the cost of it, I don’t think I would join even if I had been invited. I’ve seen a couple of places where Patrick has said they were looking to reach out to their most “loyal customers” and I’m still left wondering what makes someone a loyal customer. Even though I don’t think I’d join the HS, I can admit it stings my pride a bit that I was passed over.
