    Couldn’t find the details when I created the thread, but here they are:

    -8 Club Exclusive Barrel Aged Sour Ales (6 of these will be 500ml & 2 will be 375ml) that will not be sold anywhere else; six of these will be fruited and at least four of these will be collaborations, with Great Notion and Hoof Hearted as two of the confirmed collaborators that are bottle conditioning so far. There will not be any extra bottles of these. Each member gets 1 bottle of each of the 8 offerings. These are the cream of the crop from the sour program.

    -6 Bottles of three different non barrel aged Adjunct Stouts (will also have first opportunity to buy additional full allotments before the general public); all Goshawk bottles will be 650 ml: 2 Bottles of “Goshawk’s Territory”: Imperial Stout with Butte and Peerless Almonds, Ghanaian and Peruvian Cacao Nibs, & Brazilian and Guatemalan Coffee Added; 2 Bottles of “Goshawk’s Beans”: Imperial Stout with Marea Coffee’s Horus Blend Coffee Beans aged in Vanilla Bourbon Barrels and Vanilla Beans Added; 2 Bottles of “Goshawk’s Migration”: Imperial Stout with Kopi Luwak Coffee and Cape Fear Pecans Added

    -2 Bottles of “#bilBerry”: Collaboration with Don’t Drink Beer; Blend of Red Wine Barrel Aged Sour Ales and a very small amount of English Barleywine aged on a massive amount of Bilberries (will also have first opportunity to buy full allotments before the general public)

    -2 different Club Exclusive Tee Shirts

    -1 Club Exclusive 5-Panel Hat

    -1 Club Exclusive Glassware

    -Right to purchase additional bottles of any public non-distributed limited release including the Goshawk series noted above and any additional barrel aged beer, hours or the day before the general public. You will get a unique password each time that gets you into the Event Brite sale early. If you share this password, you will be removed from the club immediately, no questions asked.

    *There will be two Horus Aged Ales beers released separately sometime after the club goes live at El Cerrito Liquor in Corona and Bine & Vine in San Diego, that everybody will need to purchase from the respective stores, regardless of if they have club membership or not. I committed to sending these two stores these beers far before the club was even an idea.

    -First right to renew membership for the next time period; future club will most likely stay at the 200 member capacity and will cost the same as this year to renew / join.

    -Runs June 2018 to May 2019.

    First I am hearing of this. Has anyone had the Horus sours? Interesting that the membership is sour heavy when the only beers released in bottles so far have been stouts/barleywine.

    There was a Horus sour on tap at Woodshop 11 in San Diego, quite tasty.

    A friend and I are splitting a membership, I generally would let others be a guinea pig but what I've had from Horus thus far has been pretty damn good and Kyle is a rad dude in general. I'm looking forward to seeing what he produces.

    Curious if anyone has received their email? I was hoping for one of the out of state spots. The initial sign up was just a tad confusing.

    I purchased the last stout release which I thought was outstanding. Also heard favorable word of mouth reviews from people I know.

    I'm also in Vegas got shut out. Oh well more money to spend in the RB, MT and AleSmith clubs. On the positive side at least I don't have to add Oceanside to my beer road trip stops. Congrats on your membership.

    I got in, I’m not a big fan of sours, if anyone wants to split my membership and take the 10 sours and merchandise let me know. I just want the 6 stouts. PM me

    Are they sending emails to let you know if you didn't make it? Haven't gotten anything one way or the other.

    No denial emails yet, because some people might get an invite and NOT use it... so after the 48 hour deadline, any spots not filled will send out new invites.

    I can probably help you out if you send me the shipping stuff/labels. I’ve got to pick up my stuff, so not much more work to grab yours. PM me.

    Took some time but I got my invite. My ID says I don't live in San Diego County. Perhaps I should just present my property tax bill?

    Rules seemed to be pretty explicit about your ID needing to match the lottery you entered. I'd shoot Kyle a message on Instagram.
