Four years after it was discontinued, Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project will be relaunching its Cellar Reserve membership program.
The Denver-based brewery discontinued the program in 2014 due to limits in beer production, but thanks to expansion of its production facility will offer up memberships for 2018 that will go on sale on Thursday.
“We are thrilled that our growth and expansion of our Barrel Cellar is allowing us to be able to bring back the Cellar Reserve Membership,” said Chad Yakobson, owner of Crooked Stave, in a press release. “As a modern artisan brewery, we have always focused on quality, striving to progressively blend science and art through creativity and following our passion. The reintroduction of the Cellar Reserve lets us get back to our roots of experimentation and small batch blends.”
The 2018 Cellar Reserve membership costs $100 and will include:
- Two select 750ml corked and caged bottles
- Custom glass
- Access to purchasing bottles available to Cellar Reserve members – Minimum of six beers released four times a year priced between $24-$38 each
- 10 percent discount in the Crooked Stave Tap Room
- First option to renew membership each year
According to the press release, the Cellar Reserve will release a minimum of six beers once a quarter that will be available for members to purchase via the online membership portal including:
- 2018 Nightmare on Brett Sour Cherry Double Barrel Aged in Woodford Reserve Bourbon Barrels
