Crooked Stave Cellar Reserve Signups Open on Monday

Listen up all my little Sour, Wild and Funky Beer Fans!  This Monday, at 10 AM MST, Crooked Stave will be offering new memberships into next year’s Cellar Reserve program.  I made the horrible mistake of not joining the club last year, and since then, I’ve been blown away by brewer / owner Chad Yakobson’s amazing beers.

Due to the low volume being produced, the only way to get many of his beers is by becoming a Cellar Reserve Member.  So for $300, you’ll be guaranteed a variety of 750mL bottles of Crooked Stave’s best offerings.  Here’s the tentative lineup for 2013:

(1 bottle) *Blackberry L’Brett d’Or (First Quarter of 2013)
(1 bottle) *Persica – Golden Sour w/Peaches (First Quarter of 2013)
(1 bottle) *Raspberry Dark Origins (Second Quarter of 2013)
(1 bottle) *Surette Reserva Cognac Barrel (Second Quarter of 2013)
(1 bottle) *Surette Reserva Bourbon Barrel (Second Quarter of 2013)
(1 bottle) *Nightmare on Brett (Grand Cru barrel) (Third Quarter of 2013)
(1 bottle) *Cherry Origins (Third Quarter of 2013)
(1 bottle) *TBD Dark Sour blend (Fourth Quarter of 2013)
(1 bottle) *TBD Cellar Reserve Blend (Fourth Quarter of 2013)
(1 bottle) *TBD Cellar Reserve Blend (Fourth Quarter of 2013)

*Denotes beer is a Cellar Reserve exclusive.

In addition to the beers listed above, there will be several additional beers available for sale, along with a membership card, exclusive stemmed glassware, Members-only gear, 15% discount at the tap room and the opportunity to attend Members-only events.

I’ll definitely be jumping on board this year.  For the out-of-towners, you can have a “trustee” pick up your beers and send them to you.  I might be willing to sponsor a beer freak or two, so e-mail me at brewtallyinsane@yahoo.com, if you need help from a Colorado beer mule such as myself.

If you’re interested in joining the club, click HERE for all the details.  There’s even a FAQ page which attempts to answer any questions you might have about holding beer at the Barrel Room, setting up a trustee and more.

It’s no accident that Crooked Stave just landed a medal at this year’s GABF in the Wood and Barrel-Aged Sour Beer Category.  They’re making some great beers and have many more planned for you.  I may have missed the boat last year, but lesson learned and I’ll be logging on my computer Monday to get my spot for 2013.  Hope you can join me for the ride.

Cheers!
