    it isn't a tax... it is a handling fee... shipping & Handling. They gotta pay for the packing materials and employee time.

    It won't allow me to put 12 Sour in the Rye in my cart :( Says "Out of allowed quantity for purchase"

    Edit: it will let me do 11, but not 12, hmmm

    it let me do 12 SITR - 203.90 + 11.49 shipping + 32.62 Tax = 248.01

    edit: any thoughts as to whether SITR will sell out quickly? i'd ideally like to try it at EBF on 2/9 before deciding how many to buy...

    As an RS member, you are guaranteed to be able to buy 12 for the offering period. However, nobody from The Bruery has yet stated how long this offering period is.

    I replied to the wrong post, but Kevsal said, and I looked at the Bruery website to confirm, that you can buy shipping for $12. The the shopping cart adds an additional $6.28 for more shipping and $1.92 for tax. The $1.92 is what I was talking about when I mentioned tax.

    I'm thinking the store program automatically adds shipping and tax to any item, and they're selling the "shipping" as an item by itself in the store.

    The way I read it, according to Bruery's webstore, the shipping charge should only be $12. I would think everything over $12 is a mistake, but that's for them to clarify or fix.

    You replied to the wrong post and I read the post wrong... personally, i think we can blame meo_O. But ya, taxes are for goods, not services i believe... so that sounds more like a glitch to me.

    I emailed them a screenshot so they are at least aware (if they're not already), and hopefully fix the glitch, if it is one.

    Anyone else noticing that "tax" is calcuating at a 16% rate!? o_O

    Ok, so not just me. I tossed them a note via the site on that. Seems it's basically doubling the 8% rate.

    1.36 on 16.99 = 8% (1 bottle SITR)
    14.95 on 186.9 = 8% (11 bottles SITR)

    Seems fine to me

    How it worked last year was they sent you an email telling you what the allocations were for the month and the limits. The window of time you had was roughly between a few weeks to the end of the month. After which point whatever wasn't purchased was either offered a second time without limits till it sold (for RS exclusives) or went to the provisions store to sell on the floor.

    With provisions gone, I'm sure it'll just mean those excess get dumped into the tasting room as sell-thru bottles. You can order as much as your allocation allows in the given window. After that, if it's at the tasting room for sale, you 15% discount will be applied to the purchase and I doubt they have any limit on it there. Purchasing bottles at the tasting room never counted towards your allotment.

    Then it's been corrected. See "Franch's" post above, he state's The tax on his order, was $32.62 Tax, on a $203.90 order. Check the math. He should have paid a tax of $16.31 if it were 8%.

    Looks like a case of Sour in the Rye is heading to Sac sometime this weekend or Monday, sweet! Very nice shipping chargers, knowing they use their own packing materials too. $15.

    That's a slight bummer. As varying fine prints on the website implied chances to purchase more seemed like a benefit and pushed me over the edge to join. Obviously not expecting the same as RS, but maybe something like early priority window to purchase public sale limits or 1 bottle of the exclusives.
    Oh well, I'm in anyways.
     
  26. robL

    I completely agree. Nowhere did they say that we would have this option, but I suppose nowhere did they say that we WOULDN'T have this option. When both other tiers offer the chance for additional allocation purchases, I (naively?) assumed we would as well.

    I hope perhaps we atleast get a heads on when public sales go live. Kinda bummed about that after purchasing a PS membership.
     
  27. robL

    robL Oct 22, 2010 California

    I understand that. However the following bolded line:

    however, the 10% discount applies only on the quarterly shipments and does not include additional beer purchased

    led me to believe that we could buy additional allotments of the beers included in our subscription. Now it sounds like that isn't the case and that the 10% discount is built into the quarterly fee and NOT applicable towards anything else. I'm grateful this is only a quarterly membership because it will allow me to see how this system/membership works and if it's really worth it.

    All of the non-allocation beers disappeared for me. Wonder if it was a mistake that they were listed in the first place? Anyone order any of them and have the order go through?

    What lead me to believe (and its still there), if you go to Rerserve Society page (I reviewed the differences in tiers before joining), and the list of 2013 RS beers has their exclusives (CR*, Mystery* etc) with:
    * = Exclusive (Hoarders, Reserve and Preservation Society Members Only)
    Maybe we will still get one, but maybe not. Still worth joining, but not as much and I agree about it being good that only quarterly. For $80 more, It will either be Reserve Society next year or cancel, which I guess is the biggest plus (priority) about joining now.

    Sorry, my quote didn't work (something about quoting someone whose entire post is a quote apparently doesn't work), but I was curious about where salzar got his quote from.

    A bit off topic, but I was wondering if I could find a trustee to pick up the last of my allocations from 2012, since I do not think I will be able to make it down there. I should not be a big box (i think less than 12 bottles, maybe even less than 6). Send me a BM if you think you might be able to help out, I am flexible in working out some kind of agreement.

    If you called them my guess is they would be willing to ship them to you.

    Yes i noticed this too. I went to buy some Sour in the Rye today and i wanted to add some Melange # 3 and Ichigo Highway and now i can see them...did they Bruery clarify this for you?

    EDIT: i now see salzar's post regarding this issue...but i never got this email from the Bruery either ...oh well hopefully there are still some of those non reserved beers left, i want to buy them before i fly out, rather than just take my chances with what is laying around at the tasting room
