Online Purchase for Member-Exclusive Bottles
In addition to the eight beers included with your membership, de Garde may release other limited beers that will be exclusive to Keepers members. These will not be covered as part of your membership fee, but will be available for members to purchase on a first come/first served basis, while supplies last.
Each Keeper will receive high quality, custom glassware that is exclusive to the Keepers. Glassware may be picked up in the Tasting Room, or stored with other membership goods until the end of the first pick up window.
Membership Goods & Bottle Storage
(Three Month Pick up Windows)
Members are offered the convenience of us securely storing their membership bottles and goods for up to three months starting on the release of a membership beer.
Example: pick up window (not an actual release date)
A membership beer is released January 1st. Members will have three months from that date to pick up the included membership bottle. Any online purchases may be consolidated with that membership bottle. The last day for pick up of this beer would be March 31st. Any online purchases made after that membership bottle pick up will be available for pick up at any time or will be consolidated with the next membership release.
Online Bottle Sales
Members will have the option to purchase a limited number of non-membership bottles through our website prior to public sales and during a set window of time. All bottles purchased by members may be stored at de Garde from the time of purchase through the end of the current pick up window. Please note, while all Keepers will have first access to these allocations, some releases will be limited in quantity. All bottles are sold on a first come basis, and may sell out. These bottles will also be available in our tasting room.
How To Get Your Beer
Keepers will have two options for retrieving their online orders and membership goods:
• Pick Up In Person – Keepers may retrieve orders and goods at the Tasting Room during normal Tasting Room hours with an email notice at least 24 hours prior.
• Trustee – Keepers Members may designate a person to pick up their orders and goods in the Tasting Room. A minimum 24 hour notice by email is required. We will also require the name and last four digits of the driver’s license or ID number of the person retrieving the goods in the email.
Exclusive Tour and Tasting
Members will be offered a guided tasting of some of our favorite beers and a brewery tour for themselves and one guest. These will consist of a small group tour with other members at our new facility and a private tasting with a brewer. Members will have the ability to reserve their two spaces once per membership year during set days and times. Specific dates and times will be offered to members with a minimum 3-month notice for reservations.
Enrollment in the Keepers membership is valid through August 31st, 2018. Any membership bottles or purchases not picked up by the end of each pick up window will be forfeited.
