2022 Horizon Society F.A.Q.s

*Membership year runs from March 12th 2022 (Daylight Day) – March 11th 2023 (Daylight Day)*

Do you like big barrel-aged beers… sours… experimental styles?  Join our Horizon Society!! Our craft beer appreciation club gives you access to special and rare beers for one year while gaining membership into a group who all love to talk and drink craft beer.

What do I get as a member?

-One 4-pack of 2022 Resolute.

-One 4-Pack of 2023 Drunken Mornings.

-Two additional 750mL Member exclusive beers.

-Select beers brewed and available for purchase exclusively to Horizon Society Members.  We expect to have around 8-10 additional member exclusive beers. 

-Membership item (TBA).

-10% off all full draft offerings in the taproom.

-Access to member-only 32oz fills as available.

-First shot at purchasing some limited availability public release bottles (e.g., Daylight/Drunken variants, Resolute Variants, Yuletide Variants).

-Opportunity to pre-order limited run taproom releases.

-Two to Three Member exclusive events throughout the year.

-Finally, all members will receive the special member item for the year.  In years past we have done a t-shirt, growler, “yopener”, handcrafted ceramic mug, etc.  We strive to come up with something with wide appeal that also fits into who we are and what we do.  The item is always exclusive to the members of that particular year. Since we hope our members sign up from year to year, we try not to repeat ourselves.

Where can I get my beers?

Membership Beers will be available for pickup exclusively at Brothers Craft Brewing.  You will be able to pick up your beers during any of our normal taproom hours.

Taproom hours are

-M-F: 1pm-10pm

-Sat: 12pm-10pm

-Sun:  12pm-8pm

Other pickup times:

Beers will be available for pickup during limited non-taproom hours from 12pm-1 pm Monday-Friday, but MUST be scheduled in order to ensure an employee is here to assist with the pickup.

Shipping:

We ship through UPS Ground in the state of Virginia ONLY. Shipping can be added on to any Horizon order or order of any other beers from our website. All orders shipped must be received at time of delivery by someone who is 21+.

What beers will be offered in 2022?

Included Beers – Our first priority is to offer the highest quality product possible. With that in mind we occasionally have to shift releases or swap beers out due to unforeseen circumstances.  For this reason we do not typically lock in every beer that will be available throughout the year. There is always a mixture of sours, barrel aged beers, and styles we think are unique and delicious.  Always included in your membership are our 2 barrel aged pillars of Resolute and Drunken Mornings. We also pick 2 other beers to challenge your palate that are offered in 750 mL bottles.

Other Perks – Members will have first shot at an UNLIMITED (within the allocated Horizon Society volume) amount of variants for special public releases like Daylight Cravings, Drunken Mornings, Yuletide variants, and Resolute and its variants. 

What do I need to pick up my beers?

All you need to pick up your beer is a valid ID.  Members are also able to designate a proxy to pick up the beers for them.

When can I pick up my beers?

Releases will be available throughout the year, and members will be notified via e-mail and on our official Facebook group for the Horizon Society ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/375211436237404/ ) when the beers will be released and available for pickup.

Because the timing of sour and barrel-aged beers is somewhat unpredictable, release dates are subject to change.  We apologize in advance for any potential alterations to these releases. With this in mind, we do not release a full schedule for the year in advance.  We make every effort to spread the release dates out over the course of the year as much as possible so there were no long gaps between releases. 

Will you hold my beers, and for how long?

Yes, we will happily hold your beers at the brewery until you can pickup within the 2 deadline windows.

First Half Deadline- All releases for the first half of the year (beer released through August) will be held for pickup until September 30th 2022. 

Second Half Deadline- All beer releases for the second half of the year (beer released through Daylight Day in March) will be held for pickup until April 30th 2023.

*As has always been our policy, any beer not picked up by its associated deadline will be forfeited and released for sale.  This includes any bottle that is initially included in the membership or purchased in addition to member included beer.  Please make arrangements if you are unable to make it to the brewery by reaching out to fellow members through our Facebook closed group or by other means.

Can I designate a trustee to pick up my beers?

Yes, you have the option to designate a trustee to pick up your beers at the brewery. All trustees must be 21 years of age and may be asked to present ID at pickup. 

Please understand that this person is called a trustee for a reason, and we ask that you choose only someone you trust with your beer.  This person is acting as a proxy on your behalf and is responsible for ensuring the accuracy and fullness of your order before they leave the brewery. 

The brewery is not liable for what happens to your beer once it is picked up.

Assigning/Changing Trustees

Trustees can be assigned to pickup your beer through leaving a note on your scheduled pickup order or through emailing us at horizon@brotherscraftbrewing.com.

Will Horizon Society beers be available for non-members?

It is our intent for all Horizons Society exclusive releases to be truly exclusive to members.  We bottle the beers closely to pre-sale numbers to reduce the number of unpurchased bottles. 

Any bottles that make it through the pre-sale will be placed on our Cellar menu for purchase by current members ONLY for the membership year, after which time they will be open for sale to the general public at an adjusted cost.

Current members can purchase any previous Horizon Society year’s beer on our Cellar menu for the original sale price.

We also reserve Horizon Society liquid for draft in limited quantities during the release and other major events to be offered to both members and the general public alike.

What else is included?

Members will receive 10% off all draft offerings in the taproom, and have access to member only 32 oz fills as available.  These fills will include a variety of beers that are either exclusive to the Horizon Society or are not typically available for growler fill or discount in some way.

We will host 2-3 events throughout the year as an added value to our members.  Events will typically be scheduled in conjunction with bottle releases so that these limited beers can be enjoyed on draft as well. Event information will be shared once finalized. 

Can I cancel or get a refund?

We do not offer refunds or allow for canceled memberships.
