    Wasn't the $100 for 2 bottles, the snifter and the pour and I guess a little for the packaging?

    We need to get a tool to pin things like this. I believe, it broke down to:
    $40/ bottle
    $15/ glass
    $5/ pour

    The box it came in was free!

    I know I bought another glass, I think it was $15. That would make the pour 5, so either way, I'd say $40 for each bottle.

    Mug club got at $5 discount I guess. :wink:

    That must have been the case.

    Just found my email and we actually paid $30 I guess, so the math works out even fuzzier. That damn carrying case must have been $20.

    How far in advance did the mug club members get an email about purchasing bottles? I'm new to the mug club this year.

    There were openings for it? Every time I've checked it's always been "accepting no new members". Was thinking I might have marry into it...

    You have to submit a 4 page essay in person at the brewery stating why you deserve to be in the mug club.

    How are people in the mug club or attempting to get in the mug club if they are out of state and the rules are no proxies?

    You ever see those horse and buggies riding around near Decorah? Those are the out of staters coming in for the release.







    Or maybe they just drive their cars.

    There are 300 people in the Mug Club IIRC. They closed the waiting list awhile back because it was going to take a few years to let those on the wait list in. I understand if someone doesn't renew, they will add someone off the wait list.

    Yeah- I guess I just translated "proxies" more aggressively- assumed you had to be local to qualify, but I guess you could just drive there :slight_smile:

    That sounds accurate to me. I believe Clark or someone has said that once the new brewery is up and running they will have the capacity to expand the mug club program.

    That is exactly correct the couple times I've spoke with him there. Hurry up and wait for people right now. Once the destination is built, it's going to be a whole new ball game for releases.

    Quoted from 515 Brewing on a different thread...

    "TTB approval is only required if you are planning to sell the beer out of state. There is no requirement in Iowa to have any sort of label approval otherwise (i.e. if the beer is staying in state). Licensing from the state is required if you are manufacturing in the state, obviously"

    May explain why we cant see label for MD if its going to be Brewery release only. But I have not heard of Assassin being distro'd?

    Last release of Assassin (2014, iirc) it saw distribution in Wisconsin and Iowa. I should add, small distribution, most stores got 1 case.

    That was for an arbitration meeting due to lawsuit over TG having a beer named similarly to a SP beer and using a light-bulb on a label.

    Just curious are Hopsmack!, Twisted Galaxy, or Intergalactic Warrior brewed anymore? Maybe I've just missed them, but I don't think I've seen any of these over the last year or so.
