Specialty Blend

The featured perk to AWAS membership is access to one special Appalachian Wild Ale blend that NO ONE ELSE will have access to. This special blend will be brewer’s choice, and will be released to members when our brewer determines that the perfect blend has been crafted, and ready for consumption. Details for this blend will be given one month prior to it’s “release”. Each member will receive two 750ml bottles of this special blend which do not require payment, as they are included in the price of membership. 

Brewer’s Choice

An additional perk of AWAS affords you first right to purchase 6 different brands of our most exclusive 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. Allotment sizes for AWAS members will always be higher than allotments to the general public. 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 pint, bomber, growler, and merchandise purchases. This is limited to in house only. This excludes the purchase of bottled beer 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.

Members Only t-shirt

AWAS swag will include a Members Only t-shirt. This t-shirt will feature the AWAS logo in the size you specify when your member account is created. Once the shirt goes into production, you will be unable to change the specified size. 

Custom Glassware

Additional membership swag will include one piece of super fancy glassware with the AWAS logo, for enjoying your exclusively fancy barrel aged beers!

Membership ID Card

With the purchase of a membership, you will be given an ID specific, non transferable membership card. This card will allow you access to all of the perks mentions in these terms, as well as possible additional perks that we determine during the year. All members must bring AWAS membership ID card and a valid Driver’s License, Passport, NC Special Identification Card, or Military Identification Card in order to receive perks.

First Right of Acceptance to 2018 Membership

Although the terms and perks will most likely change in 2018, current members will have first access to purchasing 2018 memberships. The terms of the 2018 membership will be determined and announced at least one month prior to its release.

Bottle Pick-up

Being an AWAS member means never waiting in line (excluding busy, normal service hours in our tasting room) We will have special pickup times for AWAS members or their trustee. All members are allowed to assign one trustee. This trustee must be listed on your membership page, and 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 expanded 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.
