As a member in The Stable, you'll receive eight wild ales packaged in 750mL bottles and eight wild ales packaged in 500mL bottles (mixed fermentation/barrel fermented project) in 2018. We estimate that at least eight of these beers included with the membership will be exclusive to the Stable (exclusive beers are denoted by an asterisk* in the list below). Because wild ales are notoriously finicky and unpredictable, we hesitate to provide anticipated releases, but here’s what we’re hoping to release in 2018:
Q1: Yellow Peach George, specialty blend*, barrel fermented fruit blend*, seasonal citrus mixed fermentation
Q2: Cherry Oro, specialty blend*, barrel fermented fruit blend*, seasonal citrus mixed fermentation
Q3: White Peach George, specialty blend*, barrel fermented fruit blend*, seasonal citrus mixed fermentation
Q4: Apricot Oro, specialty blend*, barrel fermented fruit blend*, seasonal citrus mixed fermentation
Anticipated additional Oro releases in 2018: Blueberry Oro, Blackberry Oro, Boysenberry Oro, Guava Oro, Pineapple Oro, and more!
Anticipated mixed fermentation/barrel fermented blends in 2018: Dry hop, seasonal citrus, Strawberry+, Passion Fruit+, Mango+ and more!
We plan to release at least four beers (two in each bottle volume) per quarter (four total distributions), subject to revision, at the end of each quarter. We reserve the right to hold small quantities.
You have the option to either pick up your quarterly distribution in person, assign a trustee to pick up your beer (email The Stable to assign or change a trustee), or have your beer shipped within California (additional fees apply, and shipping is limited to California). We’ll work with you to combine certain orders into combined shipments. Shipped packages must be signed for by someone over the age of 21; failing to provide an appropriate shipping address may result in delayed, returned or lost shipments and potentially loss of amount paid for shipping and/or the shipped products. We will hold your quarterly distribution until March 31, 2019.
Our brewery still has limited storage space - please help us out by picking up your quarterly distributions promptly after they're released. Additionally, we require at least 1-week (7 days) notice (via email) to guarantee your pick up. If you fail to provide 1-week notice prior to pick up, your bottles may not be in stock. To guarantee that your bottles in stock, you must provide 1-week notice prior to pick up.
The Stable members will continue to receive special access to limited public release pre-sale. This means that when we have an interesting beer that we plan to release to the public we may offer that beer up for pre-sale to members of The Stable. Beginning in 2018, any non-exclusive beers that remain in stock after the release date will be added to our new online public web store.
The club-only bottle cradle included with your membership will be available for pick up with the first distribution of the year. Please be aware that if you elect to ship your bottle cradle, it will be shipped separately from your first allotment - it will not fit in a pulp shipper and additional shipping fees will apply.
You must be 21 or older, and present valid identification, in order to join The Stable. Beers acquired through The Stable membership shall not be re-sold - do not resell bottles included in this membership. If you choose to illegally resell beer included in this membership, your membership will be terminated without warning.
