WHAT IS THE RESERVE SOCIETY?

At The Bruery we like to think of ourselves as taste-obsessed. Whether we're out grabbing cocktails, sharing dinner with friends, or indulging on a decadent dessert— we're always inspired.

The Reserve Society is a very special beer community. It's our beer membership where we share our most adventurous and exclusive projects. This annual membership includes 12 large format (750 mL) members-only beers, plus access to purchase other member-exclusive projects, invitations to events, special Tasting Room privileges and more.

The Reserve Society starts with the beers, but it's so much more. Keep reading for the full list of benefits and beers.

FAQs

EAST VS. WEST

Select West if you plan to pick up at our location in CA or you plan to ship your beer within CA. Choose East if you’d prefer to pick up in D.C. or ship to one of our shipping-eligible states – D.C., ND, NH, OH, PA, VA, and VT.


Why the difference? Your choice of West or East determines where your product is shipped from due to shipping rates, inventory, and other logistics. This helps save you (and us) time and money so you can enjoy your beer faster.


BARREL-AGED VS. MIXED

We make a LOT of beer, and we want to make sure you’re getting access to your favorites! If you prefer to stick to barrel-aged stouts, barleywines, ales, and the like, Barrel-Aged is for you. If you’d like some tart and funky options mixed in with the barrel-aged stuff, choose Mixed.


What if I want more? Your choice of Barrel-Aged or Mixed only determines your included beer (1 bottle per month for Reserve Society, up to 2 bottles per month for Hoarders Society). You still have access to purchase additional bottles from that month’s releases, from which you can get whatever sounds best!

In short, we are adjusting our offerings to keep up with demand of styles and preferences. Our wild and sour ales from The Bruery - Terreux aren’t going anywhere, but we are scaling back production to allow more focus on fewer, more select sour and wild beers in the future. If you’re wanting sour and wild ales included in your membership, then the Mixed option is the way to go.

There are many ways to get your beer. Each month, when the new releases are ready, they will be added to your virtual cellar within your account at thebruery.com.

Selecting your beer(s) for fulfillment via Pickup, Shipping, or Delivery is easy. Navigate to your account, then to your cellar and place any cellared items in your cart. From there, proceed through checkout and select your preferred fulfillment option.

Hoarders & Reserve Society members can cellar their beers until February of the following year. For example, if you're a member in 2023, we will store your beers until February of 2024.

Please note that some products do not qualify for cellaring.  These include, but are not limited to:

  • Kegs
  • Crowlers
  • Offshoot IPAs
  • Bruesicles

Simply put, no. We'd love to accommodate; however, due to the limited nature of these beers, we are unable to change your preference type for included bottles in the middle of the year. That being said, most beers are available to purchase even if they're not included in your membership.

Absolutely! All you need to do is include their name in the email you send to society@thebruery.com or dc@thebruery.com, otherwise you can list them in the order notes field while placing an order on the online store.

Guest access cards grant the holder the same privileges as a member in our Tasting Rooms and the Washington D.C. store. That means whoever has your guest access card will receive your member discount along with member access. Hoarders receive 2 guest access cards, while Reserve members receive 1.

We plan to release one included bottle per month, at minimum. You can check which bottles are included and when by logging into your account clicking on the "included" tab. 

Your included bottles will automatically populate in your cellar as soon as they are available to you. To view your cellar, just log in to your account, and click on "my cellar" to see which beers are available to ship or pick up.

Each month we release a flurry of new beers, with members always getting first dibs. Your allocations are just the number of bottles or cans allocated to you as a member to purchase. Until it's sold out, you have the access to buy the allocated number of each beer, throughout the month. These beers are typically Society-exclusive releases, member-only presales on limited distribution beers, special archives pulled out from our cellar, or first access on returning favorites.

No, you will need to cancel your Preservation Society membership when you join the Reserve Society— unless you’d like to keep both memberships (many members do this so you get discounted access to the quarterly packs in addition to your included & society-specific monthly releases!)
