All the Details
As a Blender’s Choice subscriber, you will be allotted 3 or 6 bottles of sour beer at a time, depending on which tier you select when you enroll. Each allotment in the 3 bottle tier will contain 2-3 different beers and the 6 bottle tier will contain 3-4 different beers.
We expect to have 3 to 5 allotments for you throughout the year. We always prioritize quality and blending the best beer we can instead of a consistent release schedule, which means we don’t have as much control over when beer is ready. We hope you understand and appreciate why we do it that way!
Option to pick up or conveniently ship within California (No out of state shipping at this time)
As a Blender’s Choice subscriber, you have the option when you enroll to either pick up your bottles in our Tasting Room & Kitchen or have us conveniently ship them to you...
Pick Up Orders - If you enroll to pick up your bottles, all we ask is that you pick them up during normal Tasting Room & Kitchen hours within 30 days of your order being processed. Any beer that is not picked up after 30 days will be shipped to your address we have on file and the standard shipping charges will be applied to your credit card on file. We will not issue any refunds for beer that is not picked up or shipped within the timeframe of these terms.
Shipping Orders- If you live in California, we’re happy to make things super easy for you by providing overnight shipping for your bottles through GSO to any residential or business address in California. Shipping currently costs a flat $15 for (3) bottle and (6) bottle tiers. GSO will collect a signature and request government issued ID proving that the person accepting the package is 21+ years of age. Because of that, we cannot ship beer to P.O. boxes. In the odd situation where GSO is unable to deliver your shipment and it is returned to the brewery, it can be picked up within 30 days of the order being processed or shipped again at the standard GSO shipping rates. We will not issue any refunds for beer that is not picked up or shipped within the timeframe of these terms. Please note we are not legally allowed to ship beer outside the State of California at this time.
Discount on Bottles and Shipping
Subscribers in the (12) beer tier will receive a 10% discount on their bottles included with their subscription and a discounted shipping rate.
Priority Access to Ambassadors of Sour
Are you enjoying the convenience of your subscription? Want to take it to the next level and join Ambassadors of Sour? All currently active (12) Beer Tier Blender’s Choice subscribers will have an opportunity to sign up for the Ambassadors of Sour beer club prior to the public on sale date. Ambassadors of Sour offers many unique opportunities to purchase exclusive beers and attend some fantastic events. Please note that Ambassador of Sour memberships are limited, can sell out and are not guaranteed.
Occasional Access to Cellar Bottles
Subscribers in the (6) bottle tier may receive occasional access to cellar bottles in their allotment.
There is no cost to join…we will simply charge your credit card on file when your allotment is ready for you to pick up or ship! By subscribing to Blender's Choice, you’re also giving us permission to charge your credit card on file for each allotment and any shipping charges tied to them. Once the order for your allotment has been placed, we will not be able to issue any refunds.
Termination of Subscription
We ask that you commit to your first 2 shipments, but after that you may cancel your subscription by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note though that we will not be able to issue any refunds once we place the order for your allotment.
All beer purchased and obtained through your Blender's Choice Subscription is for the purpose of consumption. Drink the beer, enjoy the beer, or trade it with your friends. However, please do not resell our beer without obtaining a wholesale account with us. Reselling bottles without a wholesale account with The Rare Barrel is illegal and can jeopardize ours and your ABC license. Licensed retailers are prohibited from purchasing beer unless it is solely for personal consumption and not for resale or distribution. If a subscribed member is found illegally reselling our beer, we will have to unfortunately cancel the subscription.
