CSB

Artboard 11 copy

Side By Each Brewing Co. is proud to offer a Community Supported Brewing (CSB) program. Members pay for a year’s worth of beer during the winter. In return, they get a discount on the beer and on almost everything else we sell, along with other perks like CSB member nights at the brewery, presale tickets to special events, merchandise, and more. The brewery gets a boost of revenue during the slower months, and a dedicated customer base that will provide steady business, great word-of-mouth advertising, and invaluable feedback on everything we do.

Before opening, Side By Each is offering a limited number of Founders Community memberships. In return for some of the operating capital we’ll need to get beer flowing, members will get lifetime discounts on annual CSB shares, along with some great extras – the opportunity to name pieces of equipment, invitations to special launch events, exclusive merchandise, and more.

So, how’s this CSB thing going to work in 2019?

  • We’ll be open for coffee and beer samples from our pilot system in December or January (keep an eye on our social media!)
  • B-Day (the date we have beer to sell) will probably be around March
  • Founders Community membership sales end on B-Day
  • Annual CSB Shares go on sale on B-Day, pro-rated for the weeks missed in 2019 prior to B-Day
  • Founders Community members get the following discounts on their pro-rated 2019 shares:
    • Little Andro: $250
    • Taylor Pond: $500
    • Lake Auburn: $750
    • Mighty Andro: 100%

Community Supported Brewing

These are annual shares (similar to Community Supported Agriculture / CSA shares), where you pay up front for a year’s worth of beer, and get lots of other great benefits.

The Basics

  • Call, email or stop in for a membership form.
  • Once you pay for your membership contract, we’ll send you a year’s worth of vouchers, which will look something like this:
  • CSBticket.png
  • The volume shown on each card represents the size growler you get that week (1L for a half share, 2L for a full share, 2 x 2L for a double share)
  • You can split or combine vouchers. For example, if you want two 1L growlettes, you can use one 2L voucher (though you’ll have to pay for the glass), or if you want a 5L minikeg you can use two 2L vouchers, or if you want a 25L keg, you could use two 2L vouchers and only pay for 21L, minus your discount
  • You’ll also get a membership card, which you can use for your discounts
  • CSB Membership Levels
