"Anything less than the best is a felony." --Gilles Deleuze
We’re back for the highly-anticipated second round of our wildly successful League of Partygoers & Elegant People membership program, and 2017 is looking absolutely outstanding. We have a slew of insanely delicious beers in the works, 2 new locations slated to open in the coming year, and a year of experience and feedback under our belts. Ready your faces.
This year, we’re taking everything we learned in 2016 and parlaying it into a new and even more stunning evolution of this year-long fiesta. We’re increasing the League roster to 800 members, rolling out a breathtaking lineup of uber-rare party sauce, designing a treasure trove of outrageously saucy new merch, and working on a schedule of events that are going to explode your face with joy. And yes, the challenge coins are back. Be ready.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Because the League is doubling in size, we’re anticipating that many (if not most) of the online bottle & can sales will not make it to a public session. If you want to be assured full access to the bountiful beverage magic we’ll be releasing in 2017–and trust us, you do–this is definitely your best bet.
Your $350 (plus tax & BPT fee) membership will include 10 extremely rare barrel-aged beers, first dibs on an extensive list of face-melting special releases, exclusive growler fills, a rollicking welcome party, advance tickets for special Modern Times events, special previews of our new locations, exclusive League merchandise, and much more. The pre-sale for existing members will begin on 12/1, and the public sale will open at 10AM on 12/5. Bottle list, merch, & events details are below, as well as on the sale page HERE:
