Bruery Reserve Society question

    As reserve society member, how do you identify yourself when buying beer and swag from the tasting room and provisions? Do they send out some sort of identification cards or something?

    You get a grey card with your name stamped in it that says reserve society. I am sure one of the nice RS members will post a pic. I only trustee so I sent all the cards out.

    As first responder, you should have utilized the massive snark potential here. Instead you provided a helpful and accurate response. Shame on you.

    To the OP: every RS member receives their own unique individualized monocle that must be worn upon entry to the tasting room. This way mules are easily identified, as they appear to be wearing a pair of glasses.

    Monocle would be sweet. Monocles would just be glasses. Which makes it that much more brilliant.

    This is true....

    If it were me I would've told him about the secret hand shake... like George Costanza and the Van Buren boys.
