DETAILS OF MEMBERSHIP:
Member-Exclusive Bottles:

Our cellar team has developed a diverse list of unique beers for 2022 members. Since all beers are barrel-aged, we cannot commit to a specific release schedule, and reserve the right to make edits to the list provided above.  Membership bottles may be released at any point during the membership year of 2022.

For some of our membership-only releases, our cellar may produce more bottles than what is automatically allocated to the members as part of the program. These bottles will be available to the members for purchase on a first-come, first-serve basis. In the event that all bottles are not sold after initial member offering, we may increase limits and reopen the sale to members for a short period, but also reserve the right to offer these beers to the public once the member sale period ends. In addition, we reserve the right to offer these specialty beers on draft to the public for a short window of time and/or during special events. Our every intention is to keep these beers and bottles initially exclusive to members as much as possible, but if members fail to sellout a member-exclusive release during the dedicated timeframe that exclusivity will be surrendered.

Priority Access to Most Public Bottle Sales:

In addition to the membership exclusive bottles we will be producing in 2022, we will continue our tradition of offering to the public our unique, world-class quarterly beer releases.  As a member, you will have priority access to many of these releases.  However, there may be instances where we produce a beer specifically for a special event, group, or entity (eg. – San Diego Beer Week, collaborations with third parties, Anvil of Hope, CheeseSmith, etc).  Depending on availability of these special releases, Order of the Anvil members may not be given priority access prior to the public release.  Once again, our every intention is to have members of this program receive premium access to all of our main public bottle releases.

We will reserve the right to allocate a designated number of bottles for these releases to ensure the public continues to have access to these specialty offerings.

Member-Exclusive Events:

Throughout the year, we will host events exclusively for members of Order of the Anvil, including a Welcome Party (tentatively schedule for Saturday, February 5th, 2021) when members may pick up their first bottle(s) and merchandise. Some events may include an additional cost for those who choose to attend.

Merchandise:

Membership exclusive merchandise will NOT be available for pickup immediately upon registration. To ensure the merchandise remains exclusive to members, we will be ordering only to meet the demand of our membership roster size. Members have the option to either pick up their items at the brewery, or choose to have them shipped for a small additional cost.

We will continue to offer additional member exclusive merchandise throughout the duration of the membership year.  These items will be available for purchase and are not included in the initial registration fee.

Member-Exclusive Bottles/Merchandise Pickup:

Following release of any of our member-exclusive beers, members will have two options to pick up their bottles and/or merchandise: 1) Members are able to pick up items in the tasting room during normal business hours; 2) Members may designate a trustee (aka. proxy) to pick up their bottles and/or merchandise for them.  The use of (or a change of) a trustee requires at least 24 hours notice and a copy of identification for that designated person. Any benefits offered to members of Order of the Anvil do not apply to trustees.

The brewery will hold all membership bottles and merchandise for 90 days.  In addition, we will hold all member purchases of public release bottles for a 90 day period.  Extra bottles and pre-sold public releases not picked up within 90 days of the first available procurement date will be forfeited and refunded with a 25% restocking fee.  Forfeited bottles will then be made available to members for additional purchase for a 72 hour period. Bottles will then be sold to the public after this member-exclusive additional purchase period.

First Right to Renew Membership for Following Year:

Order of the Anvil members will have the first right to renew for the 2023 membership program. The number of members accepted for the 2023 calendar year will be determined solely based on our production volumes and ability to continue to provide all members with exclusive bottles and experiences. We reserve the right to cancel the membership at the end of any membership year.

Termination of Membership:

The membership program runs from January 1st, 2022 through December 31st, 2022. It is non-refundable and members do not have the option to opt out during the course of the membership year.  While we hope never to do so, AleSmith reserves the right to cancel a membership at any time.

An individual is allowed one membership. If a member is found to have multiple memberships, we reserve the right to cancel all duplicate memberships purchased by the member. All beer purchased and/or obtained through your “Order of the Anvil” membership is for your own consumption. Please always feel free to enjoy the beers and share them with friends. We reserve the right to cancel any membership.
