ABAS Membership Details

Specialty Blends

The featured perk to AWAS membership is access to three special Appalachian Wild Ale blends, two 750ml bottles each.  NO ONE ELSE WILL BE ABLE TO PURCHASE THESE BOTTLES.  With that, we do reserve the right to pour these blends on draught at our tasting room for special events or festivals. Your special blends will be brewer’s choice and will be released to members when our brewer determines that the perfect blends have been crafted, and ready for consumption. Details for these blends will be given one month prior to their “release”. These blends have already been included in your membership fee.

Brewer’s Choice

An additional perk of AWAS affords you first right to purchase most brands of our Appalachian Wild Ales. This allows for an AWAS member to reserve and pay for bottles without the hassle of waiting in lines or having a fast trigger finger during an internet pre-sale. These brands will be brewer’s choice, and allotment sizes will depend on production levels.  We cannot control how many times a customer returns to the brewery to purchase these brands. Of course, members always have the option to come in and purchase public allotment sizes in the same fashion. The release dates for these brands are undetermined to allow for proper aging and conditioning.

10% Discount

As part of AWAS, you are granted a 10% discount on all non-alcoholic merchandise purchases. This is limited to in-house only. This excludes the purchase of alcohol (NC state law prohibited) and future membership dues. AWAS 10% discount is given to members only and does not include your trustee, or friends\family joining you at the tasting room.

Bottle Pick-up

We will have special pickup times for AWAS members or their trustee. All members are allowed to assign one trustee. Your trustee must present a valid ID when picking up your purchases. We do not allow trustees aka proxies for the general public. This an exclusive perk for you, the member, to make obtaining your purchases as convenient as possible. We do ask that your purchases be picked up within the pickup window as we do not have storage onsite to facilitate otherwise. If this pickup window is consistently abused, we reserve the right to revoke membership.

Split Memberships

We do not accommodate split memberships on our end and discourage splitting your membership. If you find an urgent need to, you are completely responsible for the logistics. All orders must be placed in the name of the membership holder, or they will be canceled. Split members will not have access to the secret Facebook group, nor will they have access to any in-house perks/merchandise.

Termination of Membership

Memberships are limited to one per person. If you purchase multiple memberships, we reserve the right to refund any unused portions of all of your memberships. This includes revoking your ability to purchase a membership for the following year. We realize that technology is not perfect and that human error always comes into play. If additional memberships were purchased by you, or for you accidentally, please let us know right away.

Please Abide

The resale of our beer by any unlicensed reseller is strictly prohibited and ILLEGAL. If you are found to exchange your membership purchases for financial gain, your membership will be revoked and you will not be eligible for any future membership purchases.

If it is found that this has occurred, we reserve the right to revoke membership, you will not be eligible for future membership purchases, or future wholesale account opportunities.

If a club member is found to be violating the above-mentioned terms their membership will be canceled, without refund, and they will not be eligible for future membership purchases.
