By this I mean a person whom achieves enough credibility through purchases with the store to get held "whalez"? Does buying a 6 pack once every week or 2 make the cut for most of those getting set-asides of rare/special release stuff? Case minimum once a week? Many expensive big bottles on weekly basis? Just wondering what the general levels of investment of a customer into 1 establishment is the treshold to be invited into the VIP club for limited beers. Realizing every store is different but just wondering as store employees/owners or customers, where is the baseline generally at? Of course it goes without saying that your are friendly and helpful to the staff and ownership and not an annoying, mean prick of a customer.
