Membership in Wild Side Syndicate is priced at $100 (+tax). Membership benefits, which are designed for one person, commence on January 1st 2020 and conclude on December 31st, 2020. Here are more details about club.
The Wild Side Syndicate is a limited membership program. You will receive 6 bottles of barrel aged beer which will be created specifically for you and the other members. Of the 6 bottles included in the membership, we anticipate that there may be some releases that may be two bottles of a single blend. In order to preserve quality, we do not commit to any specific releases or any release schedule. As such, your bottles may be released at any point in the year. However there will be a Syndicate members only page that will be updated regularly to give you an idea of what to expect and when. In the case of a slight overage in blending, Wild Side Brewing Company plans to offer all Syndicate members the opportunity to purchase additional bottles online, but access to the additional bottles is not guaranteed and they may sell out. We also plan to cellar some of these excess small-batch blends for the purpose of a vintage release at a later date or for serving at special events. Our intent is for these beers to be available just for the Syndicate Members, but if we have an excess after the year we may offer them for special events in the following year and beyond.
Syndicate Online Pre-Sale
In the membership year, we plan to release other bottles that are not included in the Syndicate membership. As a Syndicate member, you will have the first right to conveniently purchase a limited number of bottles of most bottled releases through the Online Pre-sale on our website. Syndicate members will have access to purchase non-club releases online before the public has access to them on the website or from the brewery. All bottles purchased through this method can be stored at Wild Side Brewing Company from the time of purchase for up to 45 days. Please note that while all Members will have access to these allocations, some of these beers may be limited in quantity. All bottles are sold on a first come basis and may sell out. We will reserve a small amount of bottles for the public release and we may sell the draft version of a particular release before we sell the bottled version.
Exclusive Club Bottles for Sale
In addition to the 6 beers included with your membership, Wild Side may release a few limited small batch beers that will be exclusive to Syndicate and Tap Room Club members. While these will not be included as part of your membership, you will have the opportunity to purchase bottles online, on a first come, first served basis. These may sell out and access is not guaranteed. We expect that we will have around 4 of these exclusive bottle releases throughout the year, but that could fluctuate based on production. Our intent is for these beers to be available just for the Wild Side Syndicate and Tap Room members, but if we have an excess after the membership sale we may offer them for special events.
Order Shipping & Pick-up
Syndicate members will have two options for fulfilling their orders placed online: pick-up beer at the brewery, or designate a trustee to pick-up/ship their beer for them.
- Pick-up at brewery – Syndicate members have the convenience of placing Online Pre-sale orders and picking them up in the brewery, at no additional charge. Orders can only be picked-up from the Brewery at designated business hours or by a previously scheduled visit. All Syndicate Online Pre-sale beer purchased through the membership may be stored at Wild Side Brewing Company for 45 days. If you do live locally and visit the brewery, we ask that you please pickup your bottles asap and do not use our brewery as a cellaring facility. Our space is limited and this will help ensure we can continue to offer this benefit.
- Trustee – Syndicate members may designate a Trustee to pick-up their beer. This is a great option if you live outside of the area or Ohio and are not able to visit the brewery on a monthly basis.
First Right of Acceptance for 2021 Syndicate Membership
Wild Side Syndicate members will have the first right to re-enroll in the 2021 club. The number of memberships available for next year is currently undetermined, but will be based on production volumes and our ability to provide club members with limited release blends.
Enrollment in Wild Side Syndicate is valid through December 31, 2020. All Beer included with membership and purchased through Online Pre-sale may be stored at Wild Side Brewing Company for 45 days after each purchase. Any beer or club goods that are not picked up by then, will be forfeited.
Termination of Membership
Each person is allowed to have a maximum of one membership. If a member is found to have multiple memberships, we reserve the right to cancel the unused portion of all of that person’s memberships.
All beer purchased and obtained through your membership 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 Wild Side Brewing Company is illegal and can jeopardize ours and your ABC license. Licensed retailers are prohibited from purchasing beer as a Syndicate Member unless it is solely for personal consumption and not for resale or distribution. If a club member is found illegally reselling our beer, their membership will be canceled.
