In an effort to raise funds for a much-needed upgrade to their small brewery operation, Riverhead’s Moustache Brewing Company has launched a new beer club, the Moustache Brewing Co. Society for Fine Liquid Provisions.
Since opening their brewery and tasting room in Riverhead’s Polish Town last April, Moustache Brewing Co. has become a huge hit with local beer lovers. Dan’s Best of the Best voters elected them to the top spot, Platinum honors, in both the North Fork’s Beer and Brewery categories in 2015, and owners Matt and Lauri Spitz say they’ve been expanding rapidly. But the couple must expand even further than they initially anticipated if they want to meet the exploding demand. Membership dues for the new club will help raise the $20,000 needed for that upgrade.
“While much bigger plans are in the works for the future, we are looking to purchase another 7BBL fermenter along with some other equipment to help alleviate our production woes,” the Spitz say in their announcement, adding, “These things are far from cheap, so we’re asking for your support in completing our next expansion (and helping to save our sanity)!”
For $199 per year, members of the Moustache Brewing Co. Society for Fine Liquid Provisions (formerly the Growler of the Month Club) will get:
A monthly growler fill (12 total per year) ($204 value); an empty growler to fill ($5 value); $1 off all additional growler fills; four bottles of Society Exclusive beer—two bottles from two different releases—(approximate $60 value); VIP package for the brewery’s birthday party, including birthday glass and beer tickets ($20 value); a quarterly Society exclusive tap in the tasting room; a free pint in the tasting room during the month of your birthday ($6 value); a membership card; and 10 percent off all brewery merchandise, such as baseball caps and winter hats, T-shirts and hoodies, patches, tap handles and glassware—all featuring the very cool Moustache Brewing Co. logo.
Members will also receive priority re-enrollment for 2017 membership registration, but, most importantly, dues will ensure that Moustache Brewing Co. has enough beer!
