Beer Reward Club - your purchases will start counting today!
Due to popular demand: we have had a bunch of regulars request that we start "counting" their purchases during BeerFest--Since it is these regulars that we set the system up for, we decided to listen.   We are starting our Beer Rewards Program today, so make sure you give your phone number when you check out.   Sorry, if you have not joined yet, we cannot add you to our system today.

If you want to join, email with the title "BRC" your name, email, phone number and your normal store you would like to pick up.
