Bottles and merchandise can be picked up by either the member or their designated proxy, no one else. Both the member or proxy will have to show a valid ID matching the exact membership name or proxy name as well as being over 21 years old.
Bottles (not cans) will be held for Cellar Cyndicate members up to the full 2018 calendar year, however, we encourage you to pick up the bottles as they are released. Our tap room gets very busy, we ask that you reach out to us via email at least 24 hours before you come to pick your bottles so we can have it all ready to go for you when you arrive. Failure to do so may result in a delay retrieving your bottles at pickup. Any bottles unclaimed by December 31st, 2018 will be forfeit back to Pure Project.
As a Cellar Cyndicate member, you are allowed to designate a proxy.
Your proxy will be able to do the following on your behalf :
-Pick up bottles & merchandise
-Attend presale can release dates
IMPORTANT NOTE- You are only allowed to change your proxy 1 time over the course of the year, so please choose your proxy wisely. We are not responsible for you and/or your proxy being out of town during a release date. The release schedules are not set in stone and will shift based off of when the beer is ready.
The Cellar Cyndicate is a bottle club, the focus is on the bottles and should be the main driver for anyone who is joining. We have chosen to also give our members presale access to our can releases as well, but remember this is only a perk. Being a member does not guarantee you cans. You or your proxy will have to be present on the presale can release days to obtain cans, there are no exceptions and we will not store cans for any reason. We are also not guaranteeing a certain number of releases, specific dates for the presales or a specific allotment, as that may all change with certain beers and as time progresses.
